Very experienced tutor and mentor

I am a highly experienced private tutor specialising in English, Philosophy, Geography, Drama and the humanities subjects. I can, however, teach all subjects to up to at least common entrance level. I ensure a thoroughly personal response to each of my students, focusing on nurturing confidence, structure and adopting an approach sensitive to the requirements of the individual. I believe that the child feeling understood by their tutor is the foundation to understanding the subject being studied
I have worked with children with dyslexia, ADD and other issues on the spectrum of learning difficulty and am not fazed easily.
My experience has shown me that a good tutor/student relationship can foster a trust in which the latent talents of all young people can be identified and optimized. I pride myself on making sure my approach is always about the individual first and foremost and that the sessions are enjoyable.
I have worked all over the world for a variety of clients in China, Australia, USA. I was Head of Humanities at Blythe Hall School and run successful intensive revision courses during the holidays for a number of years as well as organising mentoring programs for children with specific learning needs.

Wonderful Tutor

To whom it may concern,

I am writing to wholeheartedly endorse Russ Bain as a tutor and mentor. He has worked with my boys for some years now on both sides of the Atlantic and has proven not only to be an excellent help with academics but also helped my youngest son's confidence immeasurably. Never afraid to throw himself in and adapt to the often frenetic nature of our family life, Russ has always been a reliable and constant support to the boys and they enjoy doing their work with him around. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a tutor.

Russ Bain

Russ tutored me for preparation both my English Lit. and English Language GCSE Exams. I found him to be a very patient teacher and extremely knowledgeable. We studied in a variety of different ways (my favourite was playing the roles of the characters in the book Balzac and The Little Chinese Seamstress!). On the whole, I would recommend Russ to anyone looking for a fun way to be tutored!
