Dr Simon's Tutor Profile

Category: Language | English
This tutor is currently on leave.


Hello. I’m Simon. I would like to teach you English.

Do you want to progress further and faster to achieve your academic or career goals?

Do you know how to practise speaking effectively to improve pronunciation accuracy and reduce your accent?

Do you need more reading, listening and writing practice for exam preparation?

Mastering a language can be difficult once a certain level is reached, but it doesn’t need to be. I believe that learning should be a creative and enjoyable process.

Why choose me? 

I hold a PhD in English Literature and am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy (an international recognition of a commitment to professionalism in teaching and learning). I am a native speaker of British English.

I have taught English language, literature and academic writing since 1998 (including at the University of Warwick and the University of London). I specialise in helping students and business professionals achieve their English-learning ambitions for academic success and career development.

I am a friendly and professional tutor and love to assist my students to progress quickly via interesting and fun activities. 

I offer conversation, 'accelerator,' academic and business English lessons, as well as professional and creative writing tuition/services. 

Book a lesson today and let me help you
 to enjoy success.
