Miles F

PGCE Primary Education, University of Brighton (2016). BA (Hons) History, University of Exeter (2014)

Member since 2020 Mr Miles F

I am a qualified experienced Primary School Teacher with an academic background in History, teaching across Key Stages 1 & 2, currently working as an English teacher online. I am also a private tutor and have taught Maths, English and Science across Key Stage 2 to GCSE. I can provide support for School Entrance Exams. From my experience in schools, it became evident to me that the individual needs of children (whether that is learning needs or social interaction) are difficult to meet in a classroom environment. My joy and drive to teach came from working in smaller groups, or individually with children. As such, your child will be treated as an individual with tutoring that caters specifically to them. I look forward to working with you!

Member since 2020 Mr Richard M

I am a Senior Examiner at A level for OCR and have thirty years experience as a Head of English, beginning at Wycombe Abbey School before moving on to be Assistant Head Teacher. I have been teaching online for six years with an excellent record of results and can offer excellent testimonials. I have experience in a full range of IGCSE, GCSE and A Level Specifications in both English and English Literature. As Senior Examiner I am involved in both marking and paper-setting. As a tutor I focus on interpreting for my students the assessment level descriptors that examiners will use to assess their work. That way, they know exactly what they must do to reach the level they are aiming for. I offer detailed feedback on my students` work and sample answers on every question I set them. I email students and their parents after every lesson detailing the work we have covered and giving clear targets for progress.

Subjects: English, English Literature, English Language
