English Literature student offering English and History tuition up to A Level!

Methodology

Student studying English Literature at Degree level. I teach English from KS3 level to A Level in Durham. I also teach History from KS3 level to GCSE level. I am more than happy to adapt my teaching style to the individual and will mark any extra work that the student does.

Background

I am a student, currently in my first year at Durham University. I have achieved the top grade for English in SATs, GCSE and A Level. I have also achieved an A* in an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). For this, I wrote about the effects of immigration on individuals, as presented in three novels. My teaching style will be specific to the individual and I am happy to teach anything from SATs level to Advanced Level.
