English Literature, Language and degree teacher with 15 years' experience, PhD. Online or in person (London).

Methodology

I teach English Language and Literature GCSE and A level, Functional Skills, and degree and postgraduate English. I use methods that suit each individual student. This could be using video, discussion, prompt cards, quizzes, using tables or just good old fashioned worksheets.

Experience

I am an experienced English Language and Literature tutor. I have a PhD in English and over 15 years' teaching experience which has taken in A level, GCSE, Functional Skills and undergraduate English. I have taught post-16s and adults in Further Education, adults on family learning programmes in schools, university students, and disadvantaged young people in the charity sector.
