I am a passionate English tutor, and I always try to foster an enthusiasm for literature in all my students. When teaching, I aim to provide clear and concise explanation, assess understanding and provide detailed feedback and encouragement.
Education is not just for exams. I aim to build confidence, encourage independence, and inculcate positive habits which last for life.
I can offer:
- Tailored lesson plans to suit the learner’s needs.
- A comprehensive program for all main exam boards and literature texts.
- Verbal feedback during sessions and detailed written feedback on optional assignments.
- Lessons adapted for a range of abilities.
- Warmth, enthusiasm and (occasionally good) humour.

As a former law student at Oxford, I am well placed to prepare students for Oxbridge applications and interviews. I am also the head of Oxbridge Law Interview Preparation at my school, providing feedback and practice interviews for 8-10 students per year with case and legislation based scenarios.
Henry has tutored my son and daughter for several months. He is responsible and reliable. My children are impressed by his affability and his enthusiasm in teaching. We are grateful for his great help and support.
