Rob was educated at Brighton College and graduated with first class degrees from Queens’ College Cambridge and University College London, where he studied English. This year he also gained a distinction in the GDL from BPP Law School. He teaches across the entire curriculum up to 13+, above which he focusses more on his specialist subject – English Language and Literature.
Having been a professional tutor for over 5 years, Rob has several thousand hours experience teaching a wide range of both domestic and international students, and helping them to fulfil their educational goals- whether that means school-placement, conquering GCSEs and A-Levels, or simply gaining confidence in areas they might previously have struggled with.
At the moment the majority of Rob’s teaching is focussed preparing students for admission to top-tier Independent schools. In the last 18 months he has helped students secure places at, among others, Winchester, Dulwich, Tonbridge, Harrow, Wellington, Eton, St Pauls Girls, and Cheltenham Ladies College. It what can seem like a rather daunting process – from the ISEB Pre-tests, through challenging interviews, to Common Entrance exams – Rob can help guide you every step of the way.
“My son got a scholarship (we found out today), so we are very grateful for all Emmanuel did. My son really enjoyed the tutorials; they gave him confidence and polished his exam technique.”
Tom Fenton is a marvellous tutor, striking a perfect balance of erudition, encouragement, judicious pressure, kindness and humour. His work with my daughter produced stellar results in the form of three scholarships; I can’t recommend him too highly.
