Gavin is a lifelong resident of South-West London. His passion for the humanities convinced him to take a full-time BA in History at Birkbeck College, where he graduated with first class honours in 2014. This was followed by a MPhil in Modern European History at the University of Cambridge where he conducted archival research on the origins of the European Union.
Nowadays, he is a full-time professional tutor who regards it as a long-term career and has already accumulated 2,000 hours of private tuition experience.
As part of his continued professional development, he is reading a part-time MSt at the University of Oxford in Literature and Arts.
- “We are extremely grateful to you for having tutored A. through this phase. He has understood and acquired a wide variety of learning techniques for both Maths and English. Your patience and focus has helped A. grow confident in his mannerisms and shows in his school results as well. Please count on us to provide the best of references, should the same be required. We will surely be in touch with you next year as, our younger son, embarks on a similar journey.” (11+ Tuition)
- “Having been predicted a C at GCSE by a previous teacher, Gavin, along with a new teacher, helped me to achieve an A* (Edexcel board). Gavin was very supportive and understanding: he gave me detailed knowledge that helped build a better understanding overall. He was kind, patient and helped me greatly with exam technique. Thank you so much Gavin.”
- “Thanks for recommending Gavin. He was a fantastic tutor for both my kids. His calm approach was certainly appreciated by both, and I have no doubt that the work they did with him has been of great benefit. Gavin is very personable and easy to have in the house and the kids seemed to be very happy in his company, which is key.” (13+ and 11+ Tuition)
