Greene’s College exceeds expectations, report inspectors.


Oxford’s oldest tutorial college, IN PORTUGAL


At Greene’s College Oxford in Estoril, our educational philosophy is based on a simple assumption: if a student’s course is tailored to suit their unique qualities and needs, they are more likely to be successful.

Whether students are sitting A levels for the first time or re-taking, we are committed to putting students first; fostering self-confidence, responsibility and independence. We accomplish this in three ways: our inspirational tutors, the Tutorial method of learning, and the Greene’s student online resource. Tuition can also be delivered online promoting accessible learning for all, regardless of the location.

Greene’s is not an ‘examination factory’. Our academic approach includes a blend of small group tutorials, with instant feedback on learning, and one-to-one weekly personal tutoring sessions to ensure all students have personalised guidance and feedback. Our wider curriculum includes regular Leadership sessions to prepare students for their future careers alongside a wide variety of student-led societies.

The Tutorial Method

The tutorial method enables students to think analytically, creatively, and independently.

It provides a seamless transition from A levels to university life. This style of learning is defined by one-on-one tuition, taught in the Socratic method, with an emphasis on independent study.

Your Goals - Our Expertise


B.A. (Oxford Brookes), Ph.D. (Oxford Brookes)

After completing his undergraduate degree in English and History, Dr. Ager embarked on a Ph.D. in the History department at Oxford Brookes and began teaching as an associate lecturer at the university. An example of his academic research may be found in a collection of papers: ‘Law, Crime and Deviance since 1700’ (Bloomsbury Academic, 2016); his own contribution being, The Limits of Government Intervention: Caroline Wybrow and the Scandal of the Contagious Diseases Acts.

In addition to his research interests, Dr. Ager holds a CELTA qualification; he has a wide experience of teaching English and History to a range of students of different ages, levels and backgrounds, Key Stage 3, GCSE, iGCSE, A level and I.B., and those with special educational needs. He is adept at focussing on the required outcomes for younger, as well as older students, whether for U.K. or international examinations.


B.A. (Oxon)

Miss. Edwards is a friendly and personable tutor with an infectious love of language and learning. Her undergraduate studies were completed with a B.A. in Modern Languages (Spanish) from the University of Oxford. During her undergraduate studies, she studied American Literature at the University of Buenos Aires, obtaining a 95% score in overall assessment for the semester.

Miss. Edwards has always been passionate about sharing her love of learning with others, first obtaining a TEFL certificate to teach English as a Foreign Language in 2017 before attending University. That year saw her spend six months in various countries across South America, teaching private adult English lessons and volunteering in a Peruvian primary school. At present, she works as a private tutor, offering GCSE support to a range of students in Humanities subjects. Miss. Edwards has also been a mentor to three different Oxford and Cambridge applicants, assisting with the practice interviews, aptitude test preparation and Personal Statements required for successful university entrance.


B.A. (SUNY Geneseo), M.Sc. (Oxon)

Alice’s academic career has been focused on studies which bring together different perspectives and subjects to help find deeper insights into humanity’s past. She completed her undergraduate degree in Anthropology with minors in English and Spanish at SUNY Geneseo in 2020. After this she completed an M.Sc. in Archaeological Science at the University of Oxford in 2021 where her thesis “The Dogs of Krasnosamarskoe: The Application of Dentine Microsampling for Canid Dietary Analysis” was awarded a distinction.

Alice has tutored in a variety of subjects at the undergraduate and pre-university level including Spanish, Geography, Biology, Anthropology, Statistics, and SAT Reading and Writing.
Alice’s love of interdisciplinary studies not only between STEM fields but in the liberal arts as well has driven her to learn and teach a variety of subjects and interact with students from many different backgrounds.


M.A. (Glasgow), M.Sc. (Edinburgh), D.Phil. (Oxon.), CETL

Angus lectures in English Literature at the University of Oxford, U.K., and has been working for Greene’s since 2011.

Angus was awarded his D.Phil. from the University of Oxford for his doctoral research on James Joyce, and he has numerous publications to his name, covering a wide spectrum of English Literature. He has also written on comparative literature specialising in the works of Marcel Proust. Angus achieved 1st class honours for his undergraduate degree from the University of Glasgow, U.K.; and a Distinction for his postgraduate master’s degree from the University of Edinburgh, U.K. Angus has also completed a certificate in teacher training from the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL).


Shelley holds certificates in Pharmaceuticals, Accounting, English and Management from different universities in China, including Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Shanghai International Studies University.

She comes from a family of teachers. Her father is a retired maths professor who has inspired her love of learning and education. Since relocating to Oxford in 2006, Shelley has tutored Mandarin Chinese with many private students from early years to adults and from beginner to advanced levels. She enjoys seeing them flourish in this wonderful language. In addition, she works closely with several tutorial companies for their GCSE, A level and business students as well as teaching undergraduates and master students at a business school.

As a language tutor, Shelley believes that it is very important to form a good relationship/bond with students. This way, the students look forward to their lessons, are more willing to listen and to interact and even to do homework, therefore they learn better and quicker.


B.A. (Reed College), M.Sc. (L.S.E.), M.Phil. (Oxon.), D.Phil. candidate (Oxon.)

Ms. Brinkman-Schwartz’s academic career has a strong interdisciplinary component, exploring the intersections of history and literature. For the past ten years she has taught GSCE, A level and undergraduate students, as well as students following an American curriculum.

Ms. Brinkman-Schwartz loves working with primary sources, whether introducing students to Greek epic literature or discussing passages from the U.S. constitution. In addition to teaching, she has worked as an archival researcher for such prestigious institutions in the U.S. such as MIT and Harvard, and as a Latin translator.


M. Pharm. (Porto), PGCE (Buckingham)

Mrs. Din has benefitted from the British system of education, both in her home town of Porto, Portugal and in the U.K. Wishing to pursue her passion for Chemistry, she went on to study the subject at degree level, enabling her to research the discipline in greater depth and also to apply it to wider life sciences.

Mrs. Din’s approach to tutoring has always been cross-disciplinary; her degree and varied work experience has allowed her to become familiar with other sciences, theoretical and practical, and to bring this experience to her tutoring. Mrs. Din’s aim is not only to ensure that the students can understand and apply the underlying concepts behind the subject, but that they can also relate the same concepts and theories to the world in which they live, and so appreciate and enjoy the relevance of their studies.


In Uncertain Times, Quality Counts

Many congratulations to all our students for another excellent year of A level results. You achieved 80% A* to A grades. 52% of you achieved A* grades. We would like to thank our staff and tutors for their tremendous hard work and dedication.
