A friendly, engaging tutor specialising in English and Humanities

I tutor English up to degree level. I can help your child improve their scores in maths, science, and verbal/non verbal reasoning in their Eleven-plus, Key Stage 3 and GCSE exams. I can also provide help to students taking their A levels in History, English Language or Philosophy. We can talk through and break down any aspect of your subject you are having difficulty with. I can give you solid tips and techniques to help you approach essay questions, substantiate your own ideas and convey them in the kind of well expressed written work that exam boards award high marks to. During my degree, I made specific changes to my essay writing technique and my time usage. They were truly effective, raising my marks from a 2:1 to a 1st degree average. I think this experience of significant improvement equips me to help you do the same. Having worked with SEN students, I know how to engage with someone else's train of thought surrounding a subject, rather than simply expect them to follow mine.

We have just started on our journey with Hamish but already it is going well. My son is preparing for the eleven plus & can be shy when meeting somebody new. Hamish has put him at ease & is good at explaining things suited to my sons level. My son looks forward to his lessons with Hamish & the varied topics helps to keep his interest piqued.
