About Rufus

Experienced Oxford-educated tutor

I graduated from Oxford this Summer, taking a high II.i in Modern Languages. Prior to that, I was educated at Eton College, where I was an academic scholar. I was awarded 9 A* at GCSE and 3 A* at A level (French, Russian, English Literature).

In my experience, the most productive lessons are those in which you manage to keep the child concentrated on and interested in the task at hand. All the lessons I give encourage activity on the student's part, with the express intent of circumventing a situation where the student is just passively listening to a tutor talk. Methods to encourage this range from physical movement (i.e moving places around a table - a physical manifestation of the lesson's temporal progression) to simple memory games.

Teaching experience

English and Maths to a girl at The Dragon School. Student was extremely shy before we started having lessons and was highly confident by the time we finished. She was successful in gaining entrance to Oxford High School.

13+

English, Maths, French, History to a student of The Dragon School. He received top grades in all four of these subjects and successfully gained entrance into St. Edward’s, Oxford.

English, Maths, Latin and French to a student of The Dragon School. He also gained top grades in the subjects in which I tutored him, gaining entrance to Eton College.

English to a student of Fulham Prep School. Despite being in Year 7, after our sessions he has a firm grasp of the Year 8 syllabus already. He is on course for extremely good results.

French, English, Latin, Maths and History to a student of Ludgrove School. His teachers predicted that he would struggle to get the grades he needed for entrance to Radley College. I was employed as an emergency measure to help him, and ended up doing over 25 hours of lessons. The student and his parents were delighted when he was successful in getting in to Radley, his first-choice school.

GCSE

French and English Literature to a student of Radley College. The student gained an A* in French and an A in English Literature, after having been predicted a B grade in both.

A Level

French to a student of St. Edward’s, Oxford. He was predicted a B by his teachers and went on to achieve an A after our sessions, which meant that he met his offer from St. Andrews University.

French and Russian to a student of Bedales. She has not yet sat her A Levels.

Oxbridge

MLAT tuition to a student of Bedales. She will be notified of her results in December 2017.

Confidential reference for Rufus Gibbs

Written by Jennifer B
I am pleased to write in favour of Rufus, whose college Tutor in Russian I have been over the past academic year, and who would, I believe, be an excellent tutor.

He is highly organised and efficient, pragmatic and adaptable, with a logical mind and the ability to express himself clearly both orally and in writing. He has good experience in public-facing work, his time abroad giving him a wider exposure to different cultures which has made him sensitive to individual needs.

To the best of my belief there is no reason why he could not work with children. He is sociable, with easy conversation and a pleasantly friendly manner, popular with people of all ages.
Subject:
French
Outcome:
Successful results in exams taken by his pupils.
