Ed is an encouraging, empathetic, supportive, and positive tutor who cares a great deal about his pupils and about the subjects he teaches. He believes that the role of the teacher is to act as a catalyst to inspire the student’s own interest in what they are learning. Once this core value has been sparked, he has learned that a student will be naturally more motivated to strive for success. He fosters a sense of self-belief and tenacity in his students that allows them to exceed expectations.
Ed would be a fantastic choice for Entrance exams to the top South London schools. He has had tutored at 7+, 11+ and 13+ and had success with multiple schools in the local area.
Ed has been tutoring English Literature and Creative Writing for over five years, and has worked with children and university students since 2009. His students have been very successful due to the work ethic he imparts, which allows them to constructively identify and address their own areas of weakness.
He specialises in helping children’s comprehension skills, time-management, essay structure and expression, and self-confidence. He has a TEFL certificate from International House, and his experience in tutoring English as a foreign language to children from various different parts of the world has taught him effective communication strategies.
In addition to his literary pursuits, Ed is a multi-instrumentalist who has both studied and tutored music production, music technology, and songwriting. He has worked as an engineer and producer from his private studio at GBL in East London, and he plays in various musical projects. He is in the process of writing his third album which will be released in November of 2018.
He is also the father of two beautiful boys, practices yoga and meditation, and is an avid photographer.
