Experienced tutor and Oxford graduate offering online or face-to-face lessons in English literature and verbal reasoning to students aged 9-18.

Methodology

I think it is important that each lesson is designed around a clear and relevant target. When you split up an overall aim into smaller goals, progress becomes easier to achieve and to measure. English can be such a creative and thought-provoking subject: that's why I always encourage my students to think for themselves. I want them to develop their skills, not just memorise information.

Experience

I graduated from Oxford University in 2019 with a first-class degree in English Language and Literature, having already obtained A* grades in the subject at GCSE and A-Level. I have been a tutor for almost four years, during which I taught over 150 hours of lessons. I have experience teaching in person and online, one-to-one and in small groups. My students have ranged from KS2 to sixth form. I also have experience with international students. I have worked as an academic tutor for IntoUniversity, Belmore Education, and Hilltop Academy. I have prepared students for public examinations, as well as for 11+ and 13+ school entrance.
