Alex - Little Baddow - School English

Methodology

I am a postgraduate student at the University of Oxford offering customised tuition in English, Philosophy, and Religious Studies.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English
Philosophy
Religious Studies

I can also help prepare students for university entrance interviews and provide advice on writing effective personal statements.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a First Class degree in Philosophy from the LSE, where I attained the best exam results in my year for numerous courses, including European Literature, Comparative Literature, and Global Literature.

I am currently studying for an MSt in Literature and Arts at the University of Oxford.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40 per hour including travel.

- Where do you teach?

I am happy to teach at my home or the student's home.

- When are you available?

I currently divide my week between Oxford and Essex. Thus, I have a limited yet flexible schedule. Please contact me to confirm availability.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

GCSE level up to and including undergraduate level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, A-level, and university exams.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am happy to tutor over Skype or FaceTime. Alternatively, I can provide essay feedback via email.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Each student is unique, and I aim to personalise each lesson accordingly, working at a pace that is intellectually stimulating and exciting.

I believe that any subject can be relevant and interesting; my objective is to discover an angle that really engages the tutee. This might entail, for example, analysing a fashion magazine or popular novel to cultivate close reading skills, or looking at philosophical issues in the media.

Where appropriate, I practise the Oxford tutorial method, combining regular essay writing with one-to-one feedback - a proven means of developing and refining the student's argumentative ability and essay technique. This is crucial for achieving the highest grades, where one's thesis must be presented in a well structured and carefully argued essay.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Before graduating from the LSE I worked as a private music tutor for ten years, teaching a variety of ages, abilities, and personalities. During this time I prepared students for graded exams (1-8) and GCSE / A-level exams with consistently excellent results.

I also have extensive experience as a tutee - I taught myself English, Philosophy, and RS at A-level with the help of private tutors, scoring 100% UMS in many of my modules. Hence, I know what makes a good tutor and what is required for exam success.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No.

- Where and with whom did you train?

University of Oxford (2016-18)
LSE (2013-16)
