I like to base my lessons around the student's needs. So, if you were to tell me that you struggle with close reading or language features, I would design a set of lessons that will introduce the basic concepts and then work towards an A* grade answer. I would like to spend some time with my students in order to completely understand their needs and the way they learn. I design all of my materials from scratch to make sure they're completely suited to each individual student.
I am a writer, and I have been studying English for... well, a very long time! I have A-levels in both English Language and English Literature, and I achieved 100% UMS in each. I have undertaken four years of undergraduate study in English, and I am continuing on to pursue an MA! I have experience in teaching and love interacting with students of all ages and abilities.
