Welcome to Hampton English Coaching!

With over 25 years of full-time teaching at the prestigious Hampton School, a top sixth-form college and other great secondary schools, I know my subject and the skills your child needs in order to excel.

Ranging from A level examining experience to 11+ entrance exam marking, my experience makes me ideally suited to support your child on their creative journey.

LET'S KEEP THEM WRITING OVER THIS SPOOKY SEASON...

Buy my illustrated 'Write It Like A Ninja' guide to horror fiction! It teaches students all about this spine-tingling genre's history, style, plot structures, characters and creative details. Plus, it comes complete with a detailed list of recommended horror reading and is packed with exciting images which are bound to inspire and prompt your child with further writing ideas. As so many school English exams have story image prompts, this is a very useful little book. More 'Write It Like A Ninja' story genre guides are being added to my website soon - all are available for pay and instant download.

This detailed and informative guide to horror fiction was written and designed by myself in response to many parental requests for recommended reading to help their child boost their literary knowledge and broaden their vocabulary. I was about to type up a basic reading list when I thought: Why not create full text genre guides AND a related wider reading list for parents to give their children? This could be read independently by the child or with parents. Result!

'All About The Horror Genre' is a quick-to-download guide and teaches them about the fiction genre and its key generic features. The 'Ninja Guides To Fiction Genres' series was born! (This is the first in the series and more will be added here soon.) 'Ninja Guides' make the students far more likely to write great horror, action, adventure or mystery tales themselves because they will already have a stronger knowledge of the different text types before starting exam tasks. Reading this great and affordable guide will make your child far more informed about literary styles, helping them write in those same styles with confidence and flair. Let's help them 'Write It Like A Ninja'!

My Story...

At Hampton English Coaching, I offer bespoke English tuition services for students aged 8 to 13.

I specialise in helping 10+ and 11+ students master their creative writing, breath of vocabulary and grammar.

With my master's degree in Shakespeare, there's nothing I love more than enabling younger students to enjoy and understand this talented playwright before the start of their GCSE journey.

Let's Go Live With More Structured Learning!

My signature 5-week live 'Write It Like A Ninja!' small-group creative writing course runs online over Saturday mornings throughout the year and is ideal for 9 to 12-year-olds who want to get 11-plus ready and improve their story writing. Children who just love the writing process are also welcome. Advance-book this popular course HERE. Varied and themed Saturday morning boot camps are also available throughout the year. Let's get them writing like ninjas!

Students do best when the process of reading and writing is made as varied and enjoyable as possible. Why can't their writing tasks be both enjoyable and stretching? Whether it's describing a day from the perspective of a five-pound note, updating a fairy tale, or writing a story in different genre styles, my students soon learn how to write like ninjas. By involving them in writing competitions, I help them become more confident and experienced writers.
