About Jeremy

Inspiring, passionate, energetic and friendly tutor

I have recently graduated from the University of Oxford with a degree in English Literature & Language for which I received a 2:1 classification. I specialise in most areas of literature from 1450 to present day.

I have previously tutored students for GCSE, AS & A-Levels and with a particular focus on exam technique and helping to raise grades from C to A*. I have tutored a few students with IB prep with a focus on keeping them on track with the studies. My previous clients will strongly recommend me and note my enthusiasm and energy I bring to each lesson with many of my past students going on to achieve exceptional grades. I am very passionate about English and History and this is something that my students notice very early on. Whilst I am very passionate, I would consider myself to be a relaxed tutor, want my students to enjoy our lessons as much as they are learning it.

I believe that every subject is always easier once you begin to enjoy it and then you can begin to appreciate the various nuances in the texts or understand a specific period that one is studying.

Jeremy O's tutoring

Written by Stephen M
I sought Jeremy's help in getting to grips with some of the texts for my A Level English Literature, and finding things within the text to discuss in the exam, and with extra reading and analysis for my History A Level as well. Sessions with Jeremy were relaxed and enjoyable, but also highly informative. The texts he was a particular expert in were works by T.S. Eliot and Shakespeare, both of which he had studied extensively at Oxford, but he was also able to look at texts he did not have prior knowledge of and help me out with them. Flexible and enthusiastic he was happy to meet whenever was convenient for me, guiding me not only in the content of the course but the examinations themselves. He also helped me with History, which although it was a subject he had less direct knowledge of his help was once again invaluable in the strategy of exams, of finding angles and information within texts and with the more basic but still essential work of ensuring I knew the content. I had a great time working with Jeremy who showed real interest in me not just as a student but as an individual, was an incredibly patient and helpful tutor and I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for extra help whatever their academic level.

Jeremy was an outstanding tutor

Written by Ian M
Jeremy taught Literature and Language to my son in 2016.
He was fantastic.
Jeremy quickly realised the areas that my son needed additional support in.
He knew his subject knowledge well but the real success was the exam technique and how to get the most out of each question without spending to much time.
The additional challenge was that mt son is dyslexic and needed extra processing time.
Jeremy entirely understood this and was able to give my son tips to cope with this like thinking time in the middle of the exam.
My son did the exams and finished the work with confidence, thanks to Jeremy.
Outstanding tutor and value for money.
My son passed both exams of course!
