A trusting, reliable and hardworking tutor with an undergraduate degree in English literature and a master's degree in journalism. Because I have been through the whole process of school and learning, I know better than anyone what it's like to complete coursework, do homework, revise and take exams. It is from this experience that I give the essential knowledge needed for each child to build their confidence, have faith in themselves and succeed. I will provide the tools to get you ahead of the game and make exam season all that bit easier.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I create PowerPoints and worksheets for my students to help them focus on key elements in a text. We go over themes, key characters and quotes looking at language and structure devices. I tend to be a study partner with my students, so we will read together, research together and plan and answer questions together. As it gets closer to exam season, I give them more independence knowing that they now have the knowledge and skills to answer questions on their own. When it comes to analysis, I am very detail orientated, making sure the student breaks down that word. I always make them think outside the box too because this creates alternative interpretations which gets you those higher marks.

What qualifications do you have?

BA (Hons) English Literature MA Journalism

Tell us about your experience...

I have four years of experience as an English tutor. I started with just English literature, but now I am able to tutor English language. As well as GCSE students, I have experience with A level and Key stage 3 students. I also have experience in all the main exam boards: AQA, Edexcel, WJEC, IGCSE and OCR.

What locations do you tutor in?

What is your personal message to students?

I understand that English isn't everybody's favourite subject, but it's one of those subjects where you can literally bring in any topic or interest that you have and make it work. I will work at a speed that is comfortable for you and eventually build your confidence in the subject so that you are able to do the best that you can
