About Mark Longhurst
The director of English Mastery is Mark Longhurst.
I have a committed and productive relationship with my students. I glean an image of how they make sense of their world, what’s going on in their day, their week, their lives in so much as it affects their ability to work. Years of experience helping students achieve their potential assist markedly with this process.
