Currently all my after-school tutees are from Norton Knatchbull Grammar School. During the day, I teach a group of home educated students. We do an hour a week each of English Language and Literature. The texts we are studying are: Pride and Prejudice, An Inspector Calls and Much Ado About Nothing.
Feedback from 2017 exam session: "Such a great Tutor was predicted a grade 3 in English Literature two months before examinations and helped achieve a 7. Highly recommend - really helpful with how to revise and great to talk to."
