My work as an ONLINE ENGLISH TEACHER has got FIVE key areas aimed at EXAM PREPARATION in: GCSE and IGCSE; IELTS; SAT; AP English and ACT English

This is essentially students at High School although, I have engaged a few high-flying students from Middle School and five at undergraduate first year university.

GCSE & IGCSE: Are IGCSEs equivalent to GCSEs?

GCSE stands for General Certificate in Secondary Education, We have two sets of exams: GCSE, which is UK-based’s National Curriculum, although some schools abroad are taking it and IGCSE, which is the international component taken by thousands of students outside the UK.

Cambridge IGCSE was created as a GCSE examination for international use and the academic demands (‘standards’) of Cambridge IGCSE are equivalent to those of GCSE. This means students can be confident that their Cambridge IGCSE qualifications are accepted as equivalent to UK’s GCSEs by leading universities worldwide.

The IGCSE is the world’s most popular exam qualification for 14 to 16 year olds, and the Cambridge IGCSE is recognised by universities and employers everywhere.

Cambridge IGCSE exams are held in May/June and in October/November each year. The May/June sitting is the more widely available.

There is a general belief in some quarters that the new 9-1 GCSE grading system is more challenging than the IGCSE. However, this is controversial and there is not, at present, a conclusive proof that this is generally the case.

The new GCSEs, with their new grading system, were introduced, to identify the most academically able, as fewer students will now be awarded the top grade of 9. Grades 8 and 9 in the new system are equivalent to A* in the old system, with Grade 9 being reserved for the crème de la crème of young people.


My Experience

I have experience as a Teacher and I/GCSE Examiner for . . .

  • Cambridge IGCSE First Language
  • Cambridge IGCSE English Literature

Currently, my remit is with Pearson Edexcel as an Examiner in the following subjects:

  • Pearson Edexcel GCSE
  • Edexcel International GCSEs in English Language A and English Literature
  • Pearson Test Of English (PTE) General

Although not an Examiner, I also have experience teaching IGCSE English as a Second Language.

For assessment purposes all GCSE questions encourage an informed personal response and test all FOUR assessment objectives (AO). Candidates will have to demonstrate the following:

    • knowledge of the content of the text – through reference to detail and use of quotations from the text (AO1).
    • understanding of characters, relationships, situations and themes (AO2).
    • understanding of writer’s intentions and methods – response to the writer’s use of language; personal response – sometimes directly (answering questions such as ‘What do you think?’, (AO3).
    • ‘What are your feelings about…?’) and sometimes by implication (answering questions such as ‘Explore the ways in which…’) (AO4).

Rest assured, Dear Reader, that my tutoring and exam preparation will develop YOU into a successful reader, listener, writer, thinker and speaker hence I have a 14-day money back guarantee.

My emphasis is on language skills, encouraging students to use relevant vocabulary, correct grammar, spelling and punctuation as well as exhibiting a sense of style and consciousness of audience.

The schedule and commencement of the course is something we agree on from the onset once all terms and conditions are met.

IELTS Crash-Course Preparation

The IELTS Academic is the most popular English-Language test that’s used for work, study, and migration, recognized by over 10,000 organizations in 140 countries around the world. It is taken by those planning to study for higher education, such as in a university or college. For these candidates, their admission to an undergraduate or postgraduate programme or courses may be based on the results of the IELTS Academic.

My IELTS Preparation course is a one to one basis course to cater for IELTS applicants according to their own level and schedule. Conducting a small group of friends is another option where their level in English is identical.
