MA Graduate offering English language and literature tutoring online for all levels

Methodology

I have graduated from a BA degree in English from Exeter University with a First. I currently tutor GCSE English language and literature. I think success is all about enjoyment and confidence. If you begin to enjoy a subject and find enthusiasm for it, and gain confidence at the same time, you are bound to do well.

For our lesson, I will have prepared a past paper, having consulted the mark scheme in detail. During the lesson, we will run through the paper together, helping the student to understand what the question is asking of them, and then they will attempt the question. We will then go over it together and compare it to the mark scheme to see how they could have gained full marks. I am flexible however, if the student has anything specific they want to work on, I am always happy to help spontaneously. But I will always have work for them prepared If they just need extra exam practise. I believe that repetition of methods such as PEE, for example, is the best way for the student to gain the best marks they can when it comes to the exam, as they will know how to ensure that they pick up all the points.

Experience

Hello! I am a student at the University of Exeter in my fourth year studying English and French. I am half French and have near-native level spoken French, so I can be especially helpful for French oral lessons. I am an English tutor on MyTutor and have extensive experience working with school children undertaking their GCSEs.

I am fully booked until the first of June, but am looking for work over the summer once the exams are over, from June to August, perhaps to prepare your child for their subjects come September, or to give them that extra confidence boost before the start of the school year!

Last year, I went on my year abroad, which I split between Canada and France. In Montréal, I studied Canadian and English literature for a term. I am passionate about literature, reading, and writing. I aim to convey my enthusiasm for this subject to students struggling with it, or who are not particularly enthused by it; both of my parents were teachers, so I have always been in an environment of people who love to learn and teach. Correspondingly, for the second term of my year abroad, I worked in Normandy as an activity instructor. There, my job was to teach French to English school children from ages 9-18 in fun and active ways. From this experience, I understood that each child needs to have things explained in unique ways to suit their brain. I became adaptable and learnt many different techniques of teaching.
