an intelligent, conscientious teacher that offers structured and fun lessons.
The lessons from Aren made a big difference and improved my English tremendously. Aren is a very patient and kind teacher, he makes sure that there is a comfortable atmosphere, but also makes sure that after every lesson you go home with the satisfactory feeling that you learned a lot of new things.
When we practiced speaking, I often forgot that I was being tutored because we had so much fun!
You should definately take lessons from Aren if you are looking for an intelligent, conscientious teacher who offers structured and fun lessons.
Experience, Patience, Diligence, and Humour
I have known Aren for a couple of years now, not as a student but instead as one of his professors on his Research MA at the University of Amsterdam. Now he is starting his PhD at Birkbeck, University of London, where I am sure he will be a great success. Aren and I have a shared background in that we both have years of experience in teaching English language classes overseas, something that helped us both develop our skills in teaching on other levels. If you are looking for someone with enthusiasm for communicating ideas and skill at helping you understand the important issues in your studies, then Aren is an excellent choice. He was great in seminars, was very good at close-reading of all material, in picking out essential details and sharing his ideas with the rest of the group. He's very good at PowerPoint presentations and recently gave a well-received paper at a conference we were both at in Gothenburg, Sweden. So, if you're looking for a tutor, he's the person to contact!
These are subjects that I know Aren has taught in the past and is extremely capable of tutoring people in today. Good luck with your studies!
The student becomes the teacher...
Aren is an old MA student of mine who is now researching for a PhD. He was the star pupil in my class, achieving top marks at writing essays, delivering presentations and showing an all round enthusiasm for the topic. I'm completely confident that he'll use all these skills to make a first class tutor. He has knowledge of a wide range of academic subjects including English Literature, English language skills, History, Religious Studies and Philosophy, and I would recommend him to anybody needing some in depth tuition in these. On a personal level Aren is friendly, patient and excellent at explaining difficult ideas clearly, so has all the really important qualities that a tutor needs.
MA with Distinction
The best tutor I could have found!
Aren helped me write my cv and cover letter. He is really professional, kind and helpful. I have already recommended him to my architect colleagues.
THEY HAVE ALREADY CALLED ME FOR AN INTERVIEW!!
Aren started tutoring my son in January for his forthcoming English GCSE exams. My son( who doesn't open up easily) immediately felt at ease with Aren because he has such a calm persona and could relate to the areas in English that my son said he had difficulty with. My son over the coming months has grown in confidence with the structuring of his English assignments and has put that down solely to Aren, commenting that he has learnt more in the four months of Aren tutoring him because of the way that Aren explained things and made him feel at ease. My son recently sat an English Mock exam and achieved an A, which he has never been able to do before. I and my son highly recommend Aren to anyone looking for a tutor. He is a true professional, a lovely person and a brilliant tutor.

Fantastic GCSE English Language Tutor
Aren helped my son to achieve top marks in a short space of time. I am positive that Aren's input changed a likely Grade C to an A*. He engaged my son with the subject guiding him to structure and organise his thoughts/ideas with a great teaching style. The added exam practise and Aren's explanations of how to improve and produce model answers generated top results !
English Language (GCSE)
Responsible and experienced English teacher with enthusiasm and humor
Aren was my best English teacher ever. He is not only a professional teacher, but he also was a kind of personal coach for me, who knew perfectly how to bring out the best in me. His English classes were always interesting, full of useful information and we practiced lifelike situations, what was very helpful for me and my English has improved with a lot of new vocabulary in just a short time. He has taught me so much about language and culture. Aren is a very responsible and prepared teacher and I’m especially thankful for keeping in mind my needs. I’ve got exactly the help I needed and his great and smart humor made each class exciting and funny. He is able to explain everything so simple, clear and briefly that I immediately understood. He is just awesome and experienced. A person who transmits knowledge and enthusiasm.
He taught me so much about how to write a really good resume and cover letters, taught me useful new expressions and helped me how to start life in London.
Aren R - huge help - engage early
My son received Aren's help for English and History A level coursework and exams. My son found Aren extraordinarily helpful and commented that Aren was instrumental in him "seeing the light" on techniques and what the question / examiner was looking for.
I found Aren very dedicated, responsive and approachable. My only regret is that we left it until January to enlist his aid - we should've started with him in September
Too soon to say - but whatever the outcome, it'll be much better than it would've been without him

Top quality tuition in English Lit., Lang., and football tactics!
Aren tutored our son in English Lit. and English Language. He is extremely well-organised, and all subjects were covered thoroughly, and to an appropriate timetable. More importantly, he established a very good relationship with our son, which both engaged him in the subject, and ensured that he (our son, not Aren) actually did the work required.
Aren is an extremely likeable bloke, and his sense of humour is only surpassed by his knowledge of the tactics employed by West Ham United in the Allardyce-era.
Successful - passes in both subjects.
