Our tutors aren't just subject experts

They’re also role models, recruited from the UK's top universities.

The nature of an English exam, and the fact that there are rarely any right or wrong answers, can make studying English surprisingly difficult. There are numerous assessment objectives and the key to success (as our tutors will tell you) lies in mastering these.

One-to-one online sessions with an English tutor will help you understand these objectives, bridge any gaps in your knowledge and sharpen your exam technique. Our English tutors have all achieved top marks in their own exams, so are well placed to guide you through yours. They'll make sure that when it comes to your exam, you feel well-prepared, confident, and ready to get the marks you deserve.

Bryony has been an amazing tutor. I successfully got an A* in A level English lit and lang, and her help was invaluable. One of my biggest worries was structure, but Bryony consistently and thoroughly scrutinised my essays with points to improve, so I always knew what I had to work on. Brilliant.

What our amazing tutors have to say

Brimming with up-to-date curriculum knowledge and always willing to help

What sort of things do you cover with your students?

Usually we cover both subject knowledge and exam technique, although that can change depending on each individual student. Then we go through diagrams, and they ask questions, and we go from there.

How is MyTutor different from school?

Lots of students say that the classes are too big in school, or that they don't have time to ask teachers after lessons. In my tutorials, we take time to explore things in a little in a bit more detail.

What happens in a typical tutorial?

I always look up the board my students are taking so the lessons are really relevant. Then we go through past papers or set texts, whatever the student finds helpful.

How do you explain tricky concepts in your tutorials?

I use the shared whiteboard. We make diagrams together and label them, and often the student prints it off because they know it's right and they completely understand it.

Do you have any success stories?

After tutoring one girl went and told all her friends the new explanation I gave her. And she was so excited about what she wrote in the exam she emailed me immediately afterwards.

Can you help with last-minute revision?

There was one girl who had her exam on Monday. She wanted tuition on Friday, Saturday and Sunday beforehand. It was very intense, but she said the exam went well.
