« Wow, never underestimate what you can do in an hour! Before starting I was a nervous wreck, but Joe put me at ease straight away. The ground I covered in an hour was incredible but, I also had fun doing it. Joe never made me feel 'bad' or 'stupid' but went at my pace, and made me think about performing in a totally new way. His knowledge is amazing and his methods really do work. I thoroughly recommend! »

Experienced English Literature Tutor: GCSE English and A Level English Literature in South London and SW London.

Methodology

I tailor my lessons specifically to the texts to be taught and how the student responds to each text. This can mean breaking down the texts into different sized areas of note to make sure that a high level of understanding is achieved. Quality discussion and debating with the student is essential to ascertain a full knowledge of the texts and subject areas. Then it is important to assess the student's capacity to structure a sound essay. I have taught A Level and GCSE English on the OCR, AQA, Edexcel and iGCSE curriculum.

Background

I am a professional actor with a degree in English and one in acting from the prestigious LAMDA drama school. I have been tutoring GCSE and ALEVEL English literature for over 5 years. For A level, no student has yet to achieve an English Literature grade lower than a B.

What kind of experience do you have?

For English tuition I have an English Literature degree from the prestigious Durham University. I can tutor at a range of levels. I have taught English at GCSE on the Edexcel and AQA Boards. I have also taught AS and A Level English Literature on the AQA, OCR and Edexcel boards. Particular strengths are in the analysis of poetry, Shakespeare and dramatic texts. I have all the syllabuses for the AQA, Edexcel and OCR A level exams as well as iGCSE. Texts I have expert knowledge of and have taught recently include: Of Mice and Men, An Inspector Calls, Macbeth, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Henry V, Never Let Me Go, Frankenstein, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

I have been a professional actor since 2007, I trained on the 3 year course of LAMDA. I have worked in TV, Film and on Stage, from the West End to the National Theatre. I am in the recent BAFTA/Golden Globe nominated film "Pride" as Jason. I have taught professional actors with audition technique and also general technique. I have also taught actors seeking to gain entry to Drama Schools.

I met Joseph slightly after the start of my foundation in acting. I felt the need to have someone who could teach me in a one to one lesson to improve even more and reach my goal: getting into a BA acting in a drama school. He has a solid method and a systematic approach, we worked in many ways in order to achieve a great result. He gives the possibility to a student to fail, to grow and in the end he leads the student to success. His teachings have helped me getting into the BA acting at ALRA

Joseph tutored my daughter Anna for her A Level English Literature exam this year. Although he only tutored her for a few weeks prior to the exam, the work he did really helped her. Increasing her confidence by testing her knowledge of the subject, helping her understand historical context and to look at alternative views on the texts. In addition Anna really appreciated the discussion based approach.

Joe tutored my daughter in English Literature prior to her A2 examinations this summer. In my daughter's words, he was easy to get along with and understand, enthusiastic, passionate and very encouraging. She enjoyed her lessons with him very much. I would add that Joe clearly loved his subject, was extremely well read and was also patient, kind, reliable and adaptable: in short a thoroughly good teacher. I would highly recommend Joe Wilkins as a tutor.

Joseph tutored my daughter Megan a few months before her A Level English Lit exam.She found Joseph to be extremely patient, professional, caring, knowledgeable, reliable and enthusiastic but most of all he gave Megan the confidence and encouragement to fully understand the context of the texts by fully testing her knowledge and overall views at all times. Joseph is one of the best Tutors that I have ever come across,his knowledge on the subject was outstanding and I would highly recommend Joseph as a tutor.
