With 8 years teaching experience and Former Head of Year and Performing Arts at Dulwich Hamlet Junior School and Head of Creative Arts at Nord Anglia International School New York, Simon is an imaginative and engaging tutor who enjoys developing the potential in all his tutees.
He has had success tutoring candidates for Dulwich College at 7+ and 11+ and, as an experienced KS1 and KS2 teacher is able to offer students focused curriculum support throughout the primary years.
With a background in Performing Arts as an actor, director and writer, Simon has enjoyed particular success with reluctant readers and writers. His creative approach to teaching is based on the premise that the key to student success and empowerment is built on understanding their individual learning needs and helping them fulfil their potential.
“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.
