Both my boys were tutored by Douglas as were needing more confidence and guidance. Douglas was very professional but also brought an element of fun which put both at ease. He helped both understand the expectations of the exam process and procedure and both commented that they felt Douglas had made it all much easier to understand. I would highly recommend
- Dr Gaynor McGroarty, parent 
I have known Douglas for over 20 years, first as his Advanced Higher English teacher, and latterly as a colleague at Kelvinside Academy. He was brilliant as a pupil, and equally brilliant as a teacher of English. The care he took with his own learning as a pupil radiated years later in his own teaching practice. The care and attention he devotes to the learning experiences of his own pupils is second to none, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Douglas as a Tutor; he has much to impart, and all the skills to deliver rich and impactful learning.
- Mr David Miller, former UK teacher of the year
Dougie helped me fully understand the Higher English course. He helped me develop formulas for both RUAE and Set Text which worked effectively. I would highly recommend Dougie 👍
- Mark, S5 pupil
I have worked with Douglas in the last year whilst preparing for my National 5’s. In this short space of time my confidence in RUAE has improved significantly alongside my critical and creative writing. Douglas is very approachable and has helped me to understand what examiners are looking for.
