Friendly Lancaster English teacher specialising in English Language, Shakespeare, classic literature and examination preparation

Methodology

I have a first class honors degree from a Russell Group university and a PGCE. I’ve taught over a thousand examination candidates over the past twenty years - with mostly A*, A or B results at A Level and GCSE.
The student is always at the centre of the lesson, and I adapt what I’m doing and how I do it so that you can get the most out of the time.

Experience

I have a great deal of teaching experience and have tutored individually, too, helping students to master technical skills, comprehension techniques and creative and transactional writing. I have a sound knowledge of current syllabus texts and have helped students to understand and enjoy them.

Phillip's CV

I am currently studying for an MA at Lancaster University, have a PGCE from St Martin’s College, Lancaster, and a First Class Honours Degree in English and Drama from Exeter University. I also have five A Levels (English, Theatre Studies, Maths, Chemistry and General Studies) and Nine GCSEs.

I’ve worked as a teacher since the mid nineties, but I’ve also been an actor, presenter and juggler, as well as a bear in a theme park.

I was taught by Phillip while studying for my GCSEs about 17 years ago. I remember his teaching to this day, and am now training to be an English teacher due in no small part to the enthusiasm and infectious love of the subject he conveyed all those years ago. I would recommend Phillip in a heartbeat.

Alex

Phillip was a huge part of the reason I managed to develop in the years he taught me. His ability to personalise his teaching style is excellent, as well as being able to condense his wide-reaching knowledge of English grammar and literature into an easily digestible form. I would heartily recommend Phillip to anyone looking to improve!

Phillip first taught me whilst preparing for my GCSEs over 10 years ago, he was one of the teachers who left a lasting impression upon me and inspired many of my choices. Phillip's passion for the written word and his ability to draw students into spirited and open debate creates an environment in which one learns how to think critically and conceptually.

R
Richard

I was taught by Phillip fifteen years ago, when he was my English teacher. The content of his lessons stays with me to this day; in fact, I would struggle to identify a teacher throught all of my education who made such an impact on me. His enthusiasm is inspirational, and this translated to excellent retention of information for me, as a student. I now supervise undergraduates at Cambridge and I often find myself reflecting on Phillip's teaching style, in order to refine my own. Overall, it would be difficult to overstate how highly I recommend Phillip.

V
Vanessa

Phillip taught me about sixteen years ago, but I can still remember his lessons to this day. He inspired my class in a way that no other teacher did. Enthusiastic, encouraging, and approachable, Phillip is an incredibly gifted teacher.

Will

As an undergraduate English student, I can honestly say that Phillip's superb teaching was one of the biggest factors that led to my pursuing this degree. His passion, enthusiasm, and honesty make him an incredible teacher and an incredible person. Phillip taught me both at GCSE and at A-Level, and the texts that he discussed with us ('To Kill A Mockingbird', 'Wuthering Heights', and 'King Lear') are some of the texts that have stayed with me for the longest thanks to his in-depth knowledge and the passion with which he taught them.

J
Jonathan

He is one of the most passionate teachers I have ever met. His enjoyment and insight in everything is infectious, and makes you want to learn more with him. He is not only extremely talented in teaching and helping people understand the material, but also inspires you to find your own insights as well. I don't think anyone could ever ask for a better teacher.

P
Phil

English was never my strongest subject, but still had to be passed! Phillip was the only English teacher I had who made sense and who's lessons I actually enjoyed.

He even taught me how to juggle.

G
Greg

Phillip is a teacher who is extremely passionate about his subject material and one who really cares about his students, both in their grades academically and in their wellbeing. Extremely knowledgeable, he teaches with a directness and kindness which was very beneficial to me, and to many other students around me, during my time as a pupil of his. I really feel he helps students fulfil their potential and wholeheartedly recommend Phillip to anyone seeking a tutor!

J
Jane

I am a Year 7 form tutor and Phil has regularly taught my forms. The students absolutely adore him; I regularly get comments such as "I used to hate English but it's my favourite subject now". He has a firm but fair manner with them, combined with his excellent sense of humour which make him an excellent teacher.
