About SW3 Tutors

My name is James Kelly. I'm an experienced English tutor based in the heart of Chelsea. I teach students of all levels, from 11+ through GCSE to A2, as well as working with adults. I am familiar with both SATs and independent schools' entrance exams. I have a Trinity (TESOL), TEFL qualification, DBS certificate and experience of working in Hong Kong schools. I have been a tutor for four years and have also worked on behalf of several of London's best regarded tutoring agencies.

I can host lessons for up to eight students, or travel locally.

 While I specialise in teaching English, I teach all subjects to 11+, and other subjects (including History and Classical Civilization) to GCSE.

Group Lessons from £30 p/h. One-to-one from £80 p/h. Discounts are available for longer courses.

I also teach ten week courses in Creative Writing for adults that closely follow the course design of the Masters course at the University of East Anglia (the leading UK course, other graduates include Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro, Anne Enright, Joe Dunthorne, Rose Tremain, Tracy Chevalier, Adam Foulds, Anjali Joseph, Naomi Wood, Christie Watson, Tadzio Koelb and many others).

I have an MA in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia and an MA (Hons) in English Literature from St Andrews University. I was educated at Eton College where I took 6 A-Levels. At GCSE I achieved 9A*s and 3As.
