Experienced English tutor, currently studying Literature and Philosophy at University of Sussex, DBS checked.

Methodology

My focus will be on choosing passages from the texts they are studying and then supporting them to form PEE (point, evidence, explanation) paragraphs which will help them to understand what they have to do alone in their exams. When discussing the texts, this is the way I shall encourage them to express themselves (how do you know that? What about the text tells them that?) so it becomes instinctual. I have done this with students previously who found it very helpful.

Experience

I am a student in Brighton. I have been tutoring kids aged 5 to 16 with the company Explore Learning for the last few months. My speciality is English Literature, and I have previously run sessions with students preparing for their GCSEs. My strengths lie in helping kids understand the source material and enjoy it.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : £15/h

Details

I will be travelling by bus so will need a reasonably nearby bus stop in order to come to you.
