English Literature graduate offering English lessons for primary to A-level students in London.

Methodology

Without any interest in a subject, there is no motivation for a student to dedicate all their efforts in it.

I therefore always seek to make a text as enjoyable as possible. There are some useful methods we can follow in essay writing, but your own personal and creative approach to the texts is of equal importance to achieving excellent grades!

Experience

I have just graduated this year in English Literature and Theatre Studies at the University of Leeds.
I have tutored a couple of GCSE students in English Literature, and together with my help they moved from low 6's to high 8's.
