Through experience in the classroom and through my own studies I have found that enthusiasm is the key to academic success - I believe that encouraging a student to find passion in a subject is the best and most rewarding form of learning!
My teaching method is to be patient and thorough with the work and writing methods, but ensure that the student knows the basics in order for them to write successful answers in their exams. I also have simple ways for structuring answers in exams such as DECADE which is a structural method I swear by in both English language and literature answers.
My training as a Secondary English Teacher was completed with Teach First, an organisation which places high-achieving graduates into struggling schools across the UK. I have taught as a full time English Secondary Teacher for the past 2/3 years - in this role, I have planned and delivered English lessons to a range of students (covering a range of abilities) in KS3 and KS4.
I am a passionate and pacient recent graduate in English Language and Literature seeking an opportunity to use the skills acquired from my degree. I have a particular interest in creative writing, having done this as part of my degree - I created a structure based on teaching creative writing as part of my university work.
I am happy to tutor learners at a basic level, up to degree level. I approach learning with an open mind. I don't believe that it is possible to have a set structure for lessons, as each individual learns in different ways and at different paces.
In my opinion, the best way to gain marks in English GCSE is practice. I will focus on practice papers, writing under timed conditions, and annotating texts. I may set reading relevant to the syllabus being studied, or papers to do in you or your child’s own time for me to mark in our next session.
Lesson structures will depend on the subject areas and goals of the student, but I broadly believe in an individualized approach. Studying the humanities is idiosyncratic and there is no universal formula for success. I get to know my students and help encourage their natural strengths and skills rather than forcing them into some prescriptive paradigmatic approach.
My teaching method is to discuss the student's ability and what subject area they are finding difficult in advance of a lesson. I then source material to enable me to teach the student and boost their confidence and ability in the subject.
I prefer to work with students who are working towards their GCSEs. My style is relaxed but comprehensive - I’m more than happy to get involved and help create revision materials for students, and like to be able to have a conversation with my students and answer their questions, rather than just talking at them.
My teaching method is to make sure that the students are understanding and are gathering an opinion about a text rather than just reciting what is being taught to them about it. Once a student understands the devices and to what effect they are being used in a text for, the student begins to enjoy the work we are doing much more.
My approach is to understand your child's needs. I will create a plan for your child that builds on their areas for development. I aim to not only increase your child's skills, knowledge and understanding across the curriculum but also to boost their confidence. I look forward to hearing from you.
At both A Level and GCSE the examinations test a students' ability to creatively interpret prose, poetry and drama, and I base my classes on teaching a student the best way to approach each kind of text and deliver a response to the question that meets both the marking criteria and shows a deeper level of understanding.
I tend to teach by demonstrating using real life examples.
i can be flexible and work with how the children want to learn and how they feel is the best way for them to learn and i can also help them feel more comfortable with what they are learning in school
I am pursuing a Masters in English Literature at University of Sheffield. I structure the lessons according to the requirements of the student which are decided upon through discussion. I do my research before teaching anyone anything. My methodology of teaching is an interactive one. I like to interact with people and am open to criticisms, suggestions and compliments.
Pupil centred teaching, led by the needs of my students. I have a degree in Primary Education and I am qualified as a teacher as of June 2017. Happy to help teach anyone completing learning at Primary, Secondary and GCSE level.
My teaching methods are very relaxed and comfortable to give my students the most I can to help them with their studies without being lectured.
English Language and Literature tutor for both GCSE and A-levels Methods of teaching include past questions, key quotes and marking and assessing your work in order to give feedback.
I achieved an A* at GCSE in both English Literature and English Language, placing second in my academic year. I absolutely adore reading and understand how difficult English can be for some students. I aim to provide a relaxed environment to enjoy English studies. I studied the AQA exam board. To help students achieve their best, lessons can be structured to suit the student.
I am an enthusiastic and patient teacher. I believe in helping my students understand what they are studying instead of just memorizing. I like prompting my students to think critically as I believe they will feel more empowered and remember better.
I am a recent Philosophy and English Literature graduate (2:1) from the University of Reading who is looking to be a tutor in Sheffield. I aim to provide help for students who need tutoring in essay and exam practice and in creative writing. I am willing to discuss texts (novels, poetry, plays) with students to help them learn how to analyse a text.
I'm a 27 year old first year PhD student who specialises in English Literature and Creative Writing and am undertaking a thesis which looks at the conventions of detective fiction, crime and comedy. I prefer to tutor based on the needs of the individual and at their own pace and ability level.
I believe it is vital to evaluate pupils skills and needs individually, and in doing so I am able to personally tailor lessons to suit individual needs. This flexible teaching method would ensure the best possible outcome for every student.
With primary school students a focus is placed on understanding key concepts within literacy, such as nouns, rhyme, verbs and adjectives. With GCSE students I have previously focused on improving the tutee's skill to close read an extract and pick out stylistic qualities that create a text's meaning.
I am a graduate of the University of Cambridge where I read English. Since graduating I have taught at university level and pursued a career as an academic, giving papers at conferences and recently being accepted for publication by Manchester University Press. I am a current postgraduate student at the University of Sheffield and am available for tutoring at all levels.
I teach using a variety of methods (discussion, projects, games, Q&A, etc.), the methods that I use depend on the student. All my sessions are tailored to the individual and group sessions are differentiated so that all students are supported. I teach up to A-level English.
My teaching style is to create fun, creative lessons which bring out the best in my students and give them confidence in their abilities. I have a strong desire to create a love for reading, writing and creativity in my students.
Easy going teaching style. Try to make it fun without taking away any content. Neutral accent so easily understood.
