Damian - Bow - School English

Methodology

I am a UK qualified English Teacher, My speciality is Poetry! If you are having any trouble with some sort of Poetry whether that be KS3 GCSE or A Level or, then im the tutor for you! I specialise in helping students unpicking meaning in poems.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

My main subject is English and more specifically poetry, however I am able to teach other subjects such as Media Studies, History and Citizenship. I specialise in working with students who are failing to achieve their potential especially in the area of poetry, shakespeare and eliciting meaning from texts. Poetry does not have to be hard and it can even be fun! The key is to really grasp what the Poet is trying to say- after all the best songs are poems!
