I engaged Jonathan to tutor my daughter for her English A Level. Unfortunately the A Levels were cancelled due to Covid, but my daughter enjoyed the sessions immensely, and learnt so much by way of content, structure and exam technique, that she was determined to continue. She is now preparing for University.
Jonathan is extremely professional, amiable and has an enthusiasm for the subject which is a joy to watch. During the lockdown, he has continued to tutor using a range of technologies.
I have no hesitation recommending Jonathan as a tutor.

Jonathan has tutored both my sons, he really gets to know the individual needs of each student, providing both text and exercises to suit and prompt discussion.
Both gained a huge amount of insight, confidence, and skill, which have been crucial with not just English but all subjects that require considered thought and response. He has taken both of them through the challenges of GCSE successfully, inspiring them to work hard and achieve what they are capable of.
Jonathan is a great communicator and I was kept fully informed of progress and work set at all times.

Than you for your help over the past few months. As you say, Eloisa seems to be far more confident and she has really enjoyed your sessions too.
You have been an amazing support for her and fingers crossed she gets the grades she deserves. We will keep in touch and let you know how she gets on when the results are announced!
Thanks so much

Just to say thanks so much for helping Gabe make such an improvement in his GCSE English over the weeks he has been with you. He wouldn't have achieved this without your help and patience.
You were so good in how you worked incessantly to motivate him, organise his revision and bring his writing up to a good standard in such a short time.

Enthusiastic positive approach
I can highly recommend Jonathan as an English tutor. He is an extremely experienced and committed professional, whose extensive knowledge of the syllabus and enthusiastic, positive approach have had an immense impact on my son and his level of achievement in English.
My son lacked confidence and self-esteem, in reading, writing and communicating effectively in English and other school subjects.
Jonathan’s empathy and understanding have given him the self-belief and the skills to approach all of his GCSEs next year with much greater confidence and proficiency.

Huge help in boosting grades
I brought my son to Jonathan as I felt he was not making any progress during his English lessons and would benefit from the help of a tutor. The lessons were not only enjoyable and challenging, they also had a big impact on boosting his grades.
Within a few weeks, things had changed for the better and we have not looked back since. The impetus the improved marks have given has helped with confidence too!
I would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan as he worked extremely hard with my son, making him aware of exactly what was required in each area he was struggling with. Everything was structured, clear and purposeful.

Thanks so much for tutoring Will these last few months. He has really come along and doesn't fear the exam like he used to. We have noticed that he has been much more focussed on his other subjects too.
He said to me a few weeks ago that you are the best teacher he's ever had. I only wish we'd found you sooner.
I will let you know how he gets on with his results. I hope you enjoy your holiday and thanks again!

Brilliant tutor! Highly recommended!
Thanks to Jonathan for rekindling my daughter's love of English. He is a brilliant English tutor and gave her the enthusiasm to organise her revision at a crucial time, offering plenty of insight into essay technique as well as giving her some useful ways of structuring her time in a busy revision period.
From languishing at a low C grade in her mocks, she managed to achieve an A in her English Literature A level and get to the university of her choice. The sessions with Jonathan made the difference.

I got my A level results yesterday, and I got three A*s! Thank you so much for all our your help with my personal statement and interview prep, as well as all our sessions over lockdown.
I really appreciate it and feel like they've prepared me well for Cambridge.

Thanks for everything you have done for Luke.
Whatever his GCSE results you have managed to really engage him in literature and make him think differently about reading, books and the importance of critical thinking.
