I am currently the lead teacher in my school for early reading and phonics. I also teach in KS1 and have experience in EYFS.
I am a well-motivated, highly conscientious English teacher of students aged 9 to adult, including speakers of other languages. I want to inspire my learners to exceed expecations. I firmly believe that the key to excellent teaching and learning is to make the approach ‘student-centred'.
I have taught English Language and Literature in independent and maintained schools for 31 years, preparing students for ISEB Common Entrance, SATs, GCSE and A Level. Additional experience includes teaching English to speakers of other languages, either for general purposes or in preparation for the University of Cambridge Examinations, KET, PET, FCE, CAE and CPE and IELTS. During my career, I have been a Head of Department and SENCO. Until recently, I have been based in schools but now wish to focus on online tutoring, which I believe suit a large number of learners extremely well.
With seven years' experience of teaching and tutoring Classics in a variety of contexts, I am a kind and knowledgeable tutor, who sets high standards of her tutees. I tailor my tuition to each individual person's needs and interests, making learning interesting, challenging and fun.

I have been tutoring individual pupils from a variety of backgrounds and abilities for nearly a decade now. I have also been teaching GCSE, A-Level, and Year 9 history since 2013-14, and have an outstanding track record in terms of results. Approximately 90% of the students I have taught at GCSE level have achieved a 7-9 grade, and I have had pupils achieve places at Oxbridge to read History within the last two years. I have excellent technical knowledge of exam preparation and essay or source paper questions, and am especially familiar with content involving the crusades (1099-1204), Russia 1894-1924, International Relations 1919-1990, and Germany 1918-45. That being said, I am willing to work on content from any time period, and with pupils of any ability or age level. My particular strength lies in the passion that I have for my subject, and my primary aim is to inspire pupils with a love for the subject.
Outside of the classroom I have led or been involved with student trips to Berlin, Russia (Moscow and St. Petersburg), and the battlefields of France and Belgium. I teach full time, however am largely available in school holidays and can also offer online sessions. Please get in touch if you have any questions not answered here.

Or perhaps you’ve always wanted to improve your drawing or painting skills simply for pleasure and to learn the rudiments of direct observational study; life drawing has been a mainstay for as long as I can remember, and hundreds of younger learners and senior artists have benefitted from private tuition since I started teaching.

"Stuart is a great teacher, he always makes every class interesting & different each week, inspired us by using various materials & techniques in different ways stretching our www.*** is always positive with his criticism which encouraged you to produce some great works, this makes the classes enjoyable discussing our work together, feeling the group were a team.
His interest & encouragement has inspired me to continue with life drawing. "
"If I have any regret of my time being tutored by Stuart it is that I only joined his group a year before he moved away from Bury St Edmunds yet even in that short time with his remarkable skills as a teacher I found my drawing skills generally; and figure drawing skills in particular; improved considerably. Because of his instruction and guidance and the foundation it gave me my art has developed and evolved to embrace most media and other genre. I will always be grateful to him."
"Stuart manages to bring variety in his approach to classes. Some weeks he positions tables propped upright on their ends and we work in various media on paper the full size of the model. Sometimes we draw a model who moves in various ways in rotation. Our still life evenings are also different, he brings in a pigs head for us to draw, and also a brace of pheasants. Stuart is always very encouraging. He covers all the basics in teaching us how to measure the body by eye, by aligning different parts of the body, and demonstrates different media techniques. "
"Stuart came with enthusiasm and willingness to share his skills. Within the group hw was able to bring out individual artistic talents. He gave us confidence to attempt many different techniques.
My art abilities are definitely built on groundings set by him"
