Ryan has been tutoring my daughter who is in Year 7 for approximately 6 months now. The sessions are once a week and had been face to face up until lockdown. The sessions are now via zoom. Ryan ensures the sessions are structured and he sets homework to compliment the learning. My daughter's English language and creative thinking has improved vastly. She enjoys her sessions. I would highly recommend Ryan. More...

Ryan provided English tuition to our 15 year old son for several weeks on the lead up to his mocks. Although confident in other subjects such as maths, science and engineering, he had been struggling with English, and we were concerned he would end up having to retake his GCSE having only achieved a 1 in his pre-match exam.

Ryan is a gentle, kind and patient tutor who is clearly passionate about his subjects and helping his students reach their goals.

He managed to coach our son, encouraging him, challenging him and getting him engaged and actually enjoying the work.
Through Ryan's tutoring and support, our son went from a clear 'fail' with his English language to achieving a 7 in his mock result. A huge relief considering that now, having not been able to take his GCSE's this year like all his year, because of Covid19, his GCSE English grade will be reliant on the Mock result and his teacher's assessment.

His teacher had commented at the time how much of a difference she had seen in our son's attitude, understanding and confidence and we attribute a large amount of that to the help he received from Ryan.

Thank you Ryan for your patience and tenacity with Douglas. The results speak for themselves."


The opportunity to inspire learners and to enjoy the subject alongside them.

I have been a teaching assistant in a school for a number of years and loved the idea of having the freedom and diversity that comes with tutoring.

I am a calm and understanding tutor, and feel that the best learning comes from getting to know the learner.

I have a degree in English literature & education and I have experience working in schools. I have a passion for English that is a pleasure to be able to share.
