Keen straight A* former A level English Student willing to pass on knowledge and love of the subject

Methodology

I like to engage the student and build a positive relationship with them. Following the set curriculum and preparing for exams is very important, as is writing essays for practice or for coursework. So is aiming to genuinely understand the subject matter and to engage in critical thought and explore around the subject. On top of this having fun while doing so is vital.

Experience

I am a recent graduate, in History from the University of Leeds. Tutoring is something I am interested in as I taught six subjects in English at an Indian primary school in 2013-14 between school and university, and this is something I want to get back into.
I have been tutoring up to nine students, throughout the week, for the past 18 months, and have totalled 530 hours. I understand the subject very well and have come to know the GCSE course inside out. It is a very important subject, as it helps with communication and critical thinking, and gets one to explore the big issues through great works of literature, whether that is poetry, novels or drama.
