Durham University Politics and Philosophy student offering English lessons in and around Oxford

Methodology

I would like to give lessons to students up to GCSE year. My focus is going to be on allowing students to express their thoughts into words. I find that most students actually do have great things to say, yet the problem is actually putting them into words, especially under time conditions. My methodology will be centred around writing structure, diversity of language and feeling comfortable working under timed conditions.

Background

My academia has always focussed around essay subjects, and language fluency and eloquence is an extremely key part of that. I achieved 10 A*'s and an A at GCSE, and A*AA at A-Level. Although I have not taught professionally before, I guided both my siblings through their public exams successfully.
