BA Hons English Literature Graduate offering English Lessons for students at all levels.

Methodology

I am an English Literature Graduate who is offering English support to students up to A Level ability. I aim to bring some fresh air into the stuffy school texts and break down topics into bite sized chunks that are easy for any students to digest. My specialty is poetry and Shakespeare (of course!). I am young, fun and enthusiastic, and I believe in everyone's ability to succeed.

Experience

English Literature is my greatest passion and I love transferring this passion onto all my students - as I truly believe that there is a book out there for everybody! I have worked with a variety of levels but my biggest success story is transforming my severely dyslexic sister from a grade D student into a grade A in her GCSE.

Alex's CV

- A grade in A Level English Literature
- 2:1 in English Literature, with a first class in dissertation
- Two previous students who both received a grade A at GCSE under my direction - one of whom was severely dyslexic and was set for a D grade!
Although I do not yet have a lot of experience I am extremely passionate about English Literature and am always enthusiastic about anybody's learning. I break information down into bitesize chunks and instill confidence from the get go. There are never silly answers to questions and my students soon learn to creatively and succinctly get their own thoughts and ideas down onto paper.

Alex was a fantastic tutor, her calm approach suited me down to the ground. Her extensive knowledge and passion for the subject was clear and it was difficult not to be enthused by her! She is approachable and I could ask her anything without feeling embarrassed that I might sound daft. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!

To whom it may concern,

Tutor Alex is someone which I couldn’t recommend enough.

A person very close to me was extremely self conscious about their difficulty understanding the selected texts on their course.

Tutor Alex was the perfect intellectual and emotional assistant. Providing the knowledge and support to comfortably carry my friend through the difficulties of studying and understanding literary works. Armed with patience , kindness and friendship - backed up with an impressive knowledge & intellect covering a plethora of works and styles.
