Hugh takes a friendly and communicative approach to tuition, believing that students should be above all be completely comfortable with the format of tuition, and that a good working relationship between tutor and student provides the best possible ground for an engaging and serious approach to academic work. He has significant and varied teaching experience, having worked as an intervention tutor at the Harris Girls Academy in East Dulwich (working with students whose behavioural problems or learning disabilities presented a potential obstacle to their realisation of their academic potential), in addition to a number of positions overseas, often with a focus on university access and applications. He has also first-hand experience of the 11+ entrance exam, including at Dulwich College which he went on to attend (with a scholarship), and has successfully coached a number of students through the 7+, 11+ and 13+ exams. As a senior tutor at Dulwich Tutors, he has taught History from KS1 to degree level, English and English Literature to MA level, Maths and Science from KS1 to GCSE level, and is keen to teach ESL at all levels. He is also interested in the creative arts, as a widely published poet and writer of fiction. In his free time he enjoys sport, cinema and literature.
