Mitchell Byrne

13 Plus Pre-Test Tutor

Mitchell Byrne has been a professional tutor for six years, working in Oxford, London and Paris. In this time, he has amassed over 6,000 hours’ tutoring experience. He has taught students of wide-ranging abilities, either in subject-support or home-school capacities.

Mitchell is a 13 Pre-Test specialist tutor and subsequently a great number of his students achieve top grades in their exams, gaining entrance to the country’s most exclusive schools. In the last year, Mitchell has helped students gain offers from: St Paul’s, Eton, Radley, Marlborough, Highgate, Harrodian and Cheltenham Ladies College.

One student was unsuccessful in his first attempt at the Pre-Test. Mitchell prepared him for a resit at St Paul’s school where he achieved an interview, and for application to City of London School for Boys where he achieved an offer. Mitchell helped him to prepare for his 13 Plus Common Entrance exams, providing support in: Maths, French, History English. He achieved As and Bs across the board.

Many of Mitchell’s students have Special Educational Needs (including dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism and Asperger’s). Many more are low-performing students, who learn to focus and unlock their potential with the help of one-to-one support. Mitchell takes a holistic approach, isolating areas of weakness and instructing techniques that build confidence and passion, as well as encourage autonomy.

One student was extremely nervous when Mitchell first met him. Heavily dyslexic, he struggled to express himself adequately on paper. He also had particular difficulty digesting and applying knowledge. Mitchell used several different strategies to help him with his Common Entrance subjects, including explaining the majority of the Mathematics syllabus using outdoor activities like golf and cricket. His confidence greatly increased and he was successful in his exams.

Mitchell Byrne tutors because he believes tuition is an essential aid to in-class learning. It enables students to flourish; it bolsters their self-esteem, and makes them valuable contributors to their class and their school.

“Where to begin? Thank you so much. We could not have done any of it without you. Our son has completely come out of himself. He is so confident and we are so pleased.”
