I am an enthusiastic English student in my second year at Cambridge, who loves to share that interest - while still getting you through your exams. My aim is to teach you how to get through your mark scheme, while hopefully making it enjoyable!
It is helpful, though not imperative, to be able to read some of your class work to see where I can help - whether in filling in the gaps, essay planning and structure, content or form of expression. We'd discuss these to make sure we understand the primary objectives for tutoring, and then discuss ideas for what kinds of activities and exercises you think you'd find helpful - from quick fire essay planning and discussions to drawing a description or drawing up a character profile. English should - and can - be fun, even if it's not your favourite thing, and if you don't like it, you haven't found the right teacher yet.
I am not the most experienced tutor, but have a lively interest in teaching - and learning from - students.
I ran a Year 7 book club which facilitated discussion and interest, both in and outside the classroom.
