A friendly, enthusiastic, fully-qualified English teacher with a first-class degree from Oxford and 3 years teaching experience at an Outstanding independent school.

Methodology

In terms of my tutoring approach, I pride myself on providing a tailored service which responds to the particular strengths and needs of the student. Through questioning, constant feedback on work and adaptive planning, I hope to develop a system of teaching and learning with the student which will best ensure their continued progress.

I generally build my tutoring sessions around practice papers, example answers and mark-schemes, breaking down the tasks so the student can work on the elements they find most difficult. English is a subject which requires a whole host of skills - timing, planning, structuring, careful reading, comprehension, accurate SPAG (spelling, punctuation, grammar), creativity, analysis, proof-reading - and my lessons encourage students to identify their areas for improvement and to implement practical strategies for overcoming areas of weakness.

Above all, I consider myself a warm and enthusiastic teacher. It is my belief that students learn best when they are engaged yet relaxed, when they feel motivated to ask questions and reflect positively on their work. With academic pressures as intense ever, it is my intention to provide sessions which make the student feel in control of their work.

Should you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Experience

I am a 25-year-old Oxford graduate (first-class honours) and fully-qualified English teacher with three years` experience teaching English Literature and English Language at Hurstpierpoint College, an outstanding, mixed-sex independent school in Sussex. I have taught students ranging from Year 5 to Year 13. My classes at GCSE and A-Level consistently attained excellent results and I am familiar with a variety of exam-boards. Currently, I am a full-time postgraduate student at King`s College London completing my MA in Film Studies - something of a passion project. My intention is to return to teaching on completing the course. In the meantime, I am offering 1-1 tutoring lessons. I am a professional, friendly and knowledgeable tutor with a wealth of tested learning resources.
