PhD in sociolinguistics, retired English teacher, offers English Literature KS3, GCSE, iGCSE, AS, A-Level. Online anywhere, or in-person at my home in Harbury, CV33.

Methodology

I’ve tutored in-person for many years, and am convinced online tutoring is just as valuable and effective - recent successes include iGCSE in Dubai and Jerusalem. I taught English and related areas at post-16 colleges and university for 20 years, but have tutored all ages from KS2 to adult, and all levels from basic literacy to undergraduate. I filled in the conceptual gaps for an A-Level English Language & Literature student whose school admitted they didn't have the knowledge to teach the linguistic and grammar aspects of the new syllabus. (My PhD is directly relevant to this.) A severely dyslexic student achieved GCSE 5 (having been predicted 2 or 3). Another student went from mock D to actual A after a few weeks' intensive tuition. I keep up with the latest syllabuses, educational materials and developments, and belong to professional organisations - UKLA, NATE.

Background

I specialise in English Language and Literature. I have a doctorate in the area of linguistics relevant to the stylistic analysis you’ll do in the new GCSEs and A-Levels. I help you improve your grade by focusing on your particular needs - and on "what the examiner wants". Whether in-person or online, my lessons are interactive: to learn you need to think and engage, not just watch & listen. I use Skype, FaceTime, Google and/or WizIQ (a 'virtual classroom') for online lessons - whatever works, really. I’ll want you to do homework and/or pre-reading so you’re ready to contribute to lessons and get the most from them. The new GCSEs want you to write about your ideas and perspectives, which students often find unfamiliar - you’ll get plenty of guided practice in my lessons.
