About Mr Grade English Subject Private Tuition

Before moving to Norwich, Norfolk, Raymond Watts, BA Hons. (Mr Grade) spent the early part of his life, growing up in the East End of London.

As a mature student, Mr Grade gained his BA Honours Degree in English and Psychology in 2001. He continued his academic career by achieving a Post Graduate Degree in Education for Students at 16 plus, teaching English and Psychology within a College and Sixth Form setting.

Mr Grade found that students who struggled in the college setting had ‘gaps’ missing from their previous education in the lower schools. As a result, Mr Grade felt that he could help students by achieving a Qualified Teaching Status so that he could better prepare students in Secondary Education. Mr Grade is passionate about young people progressing, successfully, to either their academic or work-related careers at college.

Mr Grade has taught in the Primary setting, teaching the English skills that young children need, to enter confidently, into Secondary Education.

Mr Grade believes in ‘giving back to the community’ the chances that education had given him, which spurred him to teach both young people and mature students so they become ‘the very best versions of themselves.’

In recent years, he has taught English Language and Literature up to GCSE in both Norfolk and Suffolk.

Mr Grade has an Enhanced DBS check.

Mr Grade currently lives in Norwich, Norfolk UK with his wife and two teenage daughters.
