A bit about Brent H

I’m a fully qualified, DBS-checked teacher with over fifteen years of experience in teaching, examining, and moderating GCSE English Language and English Literature, in UK secondary schools and FE colleges. I also mentor and support vulnerable students for a local authority. I continue to work two days a week in school to continue to engage with pupils face to face and continually improve my practise and continue to grow as a teacher. I have a proven track record with a 100% pass rate for my online students, many of whom have improved their mock exam grades by more than 2 levels. I specialize in helping anxious or reluctant students by simplifying exam structures and clarifying what they need to do to pass. My reviews speak for themselves (here is my most recent) … ‘I am thrilled to share my heartfelt appreciation for Brent, who has been an outstanding English tutor for my son. Over the past few months, Brent has not only supported my son academically but also significantly boosted his confidence and increased his grade potential’ I specialise in AQA, EDUCAS EDEXCEL and iGCSE English Language and Literature, SATS training and revision and English Literature A-Level. I have experience teaching a wide range of texts, in particular: Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, An Inspector Calls, Jekyll and Hyde, A Christmas Carol and Of Mice and Men. I have been very successful teaching poetry, particularly to students who are not very confident. These students have achieved outstanding results! My lessons are fully structured and individually tailored to my student’s needs. I am a great believer in simplifying ideas and making your answers more effective. Although I am very friendly and supportive, we will cover all content needed in a lesson whilst making it enjoyable and informative. I always ask for feedback at the end of each lesson to see how I can improve things but also to talk to you about what our next steps will be. My favourite thing about being a Tutor is seeing my students become more confident and assured. Everybody has interesting idea and thoughts. When I can help them unlock ways to express them in speaking and writing I feel that I have done what I set out to do. My teaching style is supportive and I go out of my way to make my students feel relaxed and confident. I believe that many students over complicate their answers to exam questions and I help them become more confident and then produce more effective answers that will give them better grades from examiners. However, I will also push students to achieve the very best grades they can get! I specialise in AQA and EDUCAS EDEXCEL and iGCSE at KS3 and Year 11 exam preparation is my speciality. My reviews speak for themselves! My students say I am kind, patient and above all encouraging. The tell me that I simplify complex ideas and encourage them to believe in themselves and their own voices.
