I will kindle a lasting passion for English!

I'm an English PhD student and a performance poet. This combination of academic professionalism and true, warm passion for the wonder of the English language makes me a great tutor for your child - I won't just help them pass their exams, I will make English their favourite subject. I've also got a friendly, engaging and lively sense of humour which will make the hours fly by.

I am keen to help anyone who is struggling with essay writing, exam technique, classwork, and general enthusiasm for the subject. I have experience with various GCSE, AS and A2 assessment and examination boards.

I am also a native Russian speaker with experience in teaching speaking, writing and comprehension. I would be overjoyed to hear from Russian speakers who need help improving their English, or English speakers who are learning Russian. Those noun cases can be monstrous.

Creative and engaging

Raphael is a great tutor, during the US election he selected some articles that were very topical and sparked some great discussions on both content and the style. My son is always looking forward to his tuitions.

Excellent, thorough, creative

Raphael started working with our son a few months before his current English Literature AS exam, when it seemed like our son's school was falling behind on preparing for the new AS level exams. Raphael came prepared with clear explanations about what the examiners would be looking for, while engaging our son in lively discussions about the texts at hand, and guiding him through interpreting the assigned novel, plays and poems in an encouraging, collaborative manner. Our son has really gained confidence via this method, and we highly recommend Raphael as a tutor!
