HI, I'm Mark and my passion is helping people to love learning and to build confidence. My role as a tutor is to identify your strengths and weaknesses and then to design personalised learning to help you to make progress. I have three decades of experience as a senior teacher in the independent sector teaching English language and literature from ages 11 - 18, Drama GCSE, Theatre Studies A level and BTEC Performing Arts. In addition, I am an experienced examiner in GCSE English Language and Literature, English and Theatre Studies A level. Throughout my teaching career I have prepared students for examination at every level, from 11+ and Common Entrance through to A level and university entrance. Much of my career has been spent working with sixth form students and I am happy to offer Oxbridge interview preparation as well as assistance with UCAS personal statements. As a former Director of Digital Learning at a senior independent school, I have a great deal of experience in online learning. Of the A-Level students I taught online last year, four have places at Cambridge, UCL, Warwick and Bath and the other two have places at the prestigious drama schools, RADA and Bristol Old Vic.

How would you describe your teaching style?

My teaching style is friendly and relaxed but focused firmly on helping my students to achieve their full potential. I believe that everybody is capable of improving, whatever their current level and my job is to design the steps that will help an individual to reach his or her chosen destination.

What qualifications do you have?

I have a degree in English & European Literature from Warwick University
