About Ollie

First-class Oxford degree; studying for a Masters

I have recently graduated with a First in Ancient and Modern History from the University of Oxford, and I am halfway through a part-time Creative Writing Masters, also at Oxford. Because it's part-time, I am living in London, building my résumé as a committed and enthusiastic private tutor.

As of October 2016, I have completed more than 300 paid hours of tutoring, and I am tutoring several lessons a week, so my skills are improving all the time.

I can explain things clearly and communicate my interest in many different subjects, while getting to know each pupil and tailoring my approach especially for them. I would be particularly keen to tutor the 11+, or my three favourite subjects at GCSE or A-level: English, Medieval History and Ancient History. I also offer courses in modern television drama, which I find fascinating and a lot more academically engaging than most people expect; and a related course in The Wire and Sociology.

I have full documentation, including a DBS check dating from August 2015. I went to Eton College - where I earned three A-level A*s, a short-Pre-U Distinction 3 and ten A*s at GCSE - so I am excited about Tutorfair because I like the idea of giving something back, to help make sure that everybody has the chance of a great education.

Super English Tutor

Ollie is a great English Lit and Lang tutor. He teaches my son once a week and we are really happy with the progress being made. He uses just the right strategies and approach with our reluctant teenager. Would highly recommend.

Supportive, friendly and knowledgeable

Written by Cornelia F
Ollie provided me with valuable help when applying to Oxford for History. He challenged my perspectives but also guided me in a friendly and enthusiastic manner. I highly recommend him for anyone in need of interview and admissions test help, particularly for Oxford as he is a recent graduate and understands the system well.

Fantastic tutor

Written by Gila C
Ollie has been a brilliant tutor for our son who is 9 years old and looking to do his 11+ exams in January. From the very first session Ollie and my son bonded well and he has been able to make learning fun and interesting for him. He looks forward to his sessions with Ollie and has even asked me why his school teachers cannot be more like Ollie who makes learning a wonderful experience.
Subject:
11 Plus
Outcome:
We have a son who is improving on his academic skills and enjoying it at the same time which is all we can ask for.

My son really enjoyed his lesson with Ollie who very patiently, and clearly, guided my son through Comprehension. He now is really looking forward to his next lesson and I know my son will progress very quickly with Ollie's knowledge and expertise. Really happy and lucky to have found such a great tutor.

Fabulous tutor

Written by Samira H
My son had his second lesson with Ollie yesterday and asked if Ollie could come twice a week, that's how much he enjoys his lessons. Ollie in my opinion is incredible. He engages Nima from the beginning and covers a great deal of material in the 90 minutes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ollie to others.
Subject:
English (11+)
Outcome:
Have rebooked further lessons.
