How can you get brilliant results without overworking?
If you are a teacher or school leader, this website will show you how to do just that – get great results without working harder. From classroom to whole school, this site will be filled with solutions – find the ones you like, and think hard about the ones you don’t.
They are free, even if you don’t buy the book: The Slightly Awesome Teacher.
If you are an English student, or an English teacher, it shows you how to be brilliant at English – a huge number of students can get the top grades, 7, 8 and 9. I regularly achieve these grades with students who aren’t in a top set.
And with 2 million views on Mr Salles Teaches English, there are many more students doing it for themselves.

A great place to learn about poems, plays and novels you may be studying. If you’ve ever asked the question, “why do I have to learn this?”, this channel should have an interesting answer. And if you’ve ever wondered how to learn it, watch the videos, and let learning happen naturally.
Our latest publications
I have been following Dominic Salles on his YOUTUBE account and have improved my own teaching by listening to the way he gives advice to students... I had been hoping for months that he would release a book on ANYTHING and even though, at the time, I was hoping for something on literature, perhaps a workbook or study guide, after having read this book, I realised this is actually the book I was waiting for, even though I didnt know it. It is thorough, practical and structured in a way that allows you to turn to any page and find out what works and what doesnt, according to edu-research. And then you get sucked into the book through Salles' brilliant use of language, information and entertainment to help you improve your teaching and get you thinking about what actually makes students learn best. Probably the best book I have bought this year, or maybe ever.
The Slightly Awesome Teacher Book
Excellent book. Better than any other revision book I've used. Suitable for dyslexic students, as the design is simple - no confusing and unnecessary magazine-type design features. Just black on white.

The Mr Salles Guide to 100% in AQA English Language Exam
There are loads of practical tips in here and they are explained well enough for me to actually be able to use them. I found this book useful in my NQT year. It helped solidify what was still a bit ambiguous from my PGCE year. Now I better read his book about GCSE Eng Language.
