My Approach to Tutoring
I take a highly professional attitude to tuition. The early steps include gaining an understanding of a pupils existing strengths and weaknesses as well as building a strong relationship with the student. Based upon areas identified for work, I can help to structure a study timetable and plan lessons that will plug gaps in knowledge.
I know the content and curriculum well for all major exam boards including pre-tests, GCSE or iGCSE as well as Edexcel, AQA, OCR, CIE, WJEC for A-Level. Due to this, I am able to structure lessons to exhaustively cover examination content as well as maximize time spent covering areas which are worth the most marks.
I believe that exam technique and confidence are particularly important to help students to fulfill their potential in the short time frame of exams. By allowing students to practice in realistic conditions, it reduces the stress and risk associated with final exams or interviews.

Luke Howarth – Professional Teacher in Central London
I took a teaching post at Harrow School in 2015, teaching IGCSEs in English Language and Literature and delivering lectures to A-level students.

Earlier that year I graduated with a first class degree in English Language and Literature from Christ Church, Oxford, where I was one of the twelve original Reuben Scholars. My papers in Shakespeare and Beckett for Finals were classed as publishable. Throughout my time at Oxford and Harrow, I have accumulated extensive experience tutoring privately for a range of abilities, from pre-test to university admissions. Although my undergraduate degree was in the arts, I have always nurtured a healthy interest in subjects across the curriculum, having studied Further Mathematics and Physics at A Level, and I am continually excited by the prospect of facilitating the development of a student’s academic pursuits in a variety of disciplines. A constant desire to advance my own knowledge energises me as a tutor, and I believe that communicating this enthusiasm allows me to stimulate both the curiosity and diligence of my tutees. ...
