As part of my current role as Head of Academic Projects at a high-achieving London independent school, I am involved in several research projects aimed at developing an approach to teaching that fosters these independent research skills.

Mrs Victoria P

I am a passionate and dedicated teacher of English with over ten years’ experience of helping students achieve their potential, both in the classroom and as a tutor, in state and private sectors. I have experience across a range of boards, qualifications, ages and abilities: KS2, SATS, Common Entrance, Scholarships, GCSE and A level. I’m hoping to embark on a master’s degree in English next year and therefore am currently just tutoring. As a teacher and mum of four, I feel strongly about fostering an attitude that accounts for the varying pressures on young people nowadays. I focus on developing skills and interests that will last, rather than simply training pupils for an exam. Good relationships between teacher, student and parents are crucial, and I’ve always prided myself on facilitating and achieving these in the past. I offer a personalised and adaptive approach towards tuition, and am passionate about the roles language and literature have in helping young people to navigate our complex world.

Dr Rod F

Throughout my career to date I have endeavoured to bring great enthusiasm to all of my teaching and tutoring. As a result the vast majority of the students that I have tutored have gained high grades at GCSE and A-level, and most have continued to be successful in their university studies. While studying for my PhD I taught classes for two years to first and second year undergraduates at St. Andrews. I have also taught language classes to adult learners at Reading University Summer School, involving both beginners and intermediate students, and I am used to catering to the needs of students at various stages of their learning. My style is relaxed and I always aim to make learning enjoyable while promoting academic progress. I also encourage active participation and believe in allowing all students to comment constructively on their own progress and the different activities undertaken in lessons and tutorials. I can tutor students in English, French, History, Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Studies.
