iELT exam preparation
Focused on English language paper 2 question 3 and found it really useful.
Went over English literature paper 2 (including power and conflict, AIC, and unseen poetry) in preparation for my mock on Monday and found it very useful.
Extremely helpful to Ed! Ed really enjoys his lessons with you which is amazing as he has never enjoyed English before!
Brilliant as always
Excellent feedback. Really nice and helpful. I highly recommend John as an English tutor.
John provided great feedback on my work and helped me understand a lot of things which had bothered me for a while. He also gave me lots of tips which were incredibly useful during the exam.
John is a fantastic teacher who really cares about his students and wants them to do well. As a student at the French Lycée, English is not my first language and I had difficulty with exam techniques and time management for the Cambridge iGCSE First Language exam. John’s help was invaluable. He reviewed my work and provided me with great tips and advice which made a real difference to my grades in just a few sessions. The exam results just came out and I am very grateful for John’s help in securing my A*. Elsa IGCSE-English Language Results: 2021-22'

I received my GCSE results earlier today and wanted to let you know as you were a great help in me getting these grades, so thank you. In English Language I got an A-/7, and in Literature I got a B+. I cannot stress enough how much your lesson really helped me and I can only imagine if we had had more time together I would’ve gotten a higher grade.
