English Literature student from the University of York graduating Summer 2019. Offering expertise in GCSE English Language and Literature, A Level English Literature, and classes in essay writing.

Methodology

I base my tuition upon the needs of each student. With English being such a broad and interdisciplinary subject, it is best practice for an initial meeting to gauge the skills that each individual would like to enhance.

Experience

Graduating in 2019 from the University of York with an upper second class honours degree (predicted), I have been tutoring throughout my three years at York.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £2
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £90
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £175

Details

I offer each new student a 30 minute introductory session, where we can outline areas of strengths and weaknesses and make a plan of what we can work on going forward.
