English literature and history undergraduate at University of York, London/York based with exemplary academic record

Methodology

GCSE-A Level Tutoring.
My English Literature record: A* (GCSE), A* (A-Level)
Having recently been through the schooling system I am very well equipped and knowledgable of what is necessary to gain very good, if not excellent, grades.
Understanding what the exam boards want students to demonstrate in their work is crucial to gaining marks and meeting, hopefully exceeding, grade targets.


Background

I have over a years experience working at Kumon UK as an assistant tutor with children aged 5-16. I was teaching between 2-15 students at any given time during work hours.
I have extensive experience in working with young people (15-17) in a non-academic capacity at NCS The Challenge.
