My approach is to help students develop effective strategies for each exam question and therefore my tutees feel prepared and secure in their success. My strengths are in the IB and A Level and I'm also highly experienced in working with GCSE students, particularly with the latest curriculum specifications.
For me education is all about switching people on - illuminating a subject as well as grasping its content. I believe that if I can help a student to be interested in the topic at hand, then I’ve done something for them as people as well as for their academic success. I try to do this by incorporating broader ideas from the arts & humanities within my lesson plan.
I base my teaching on the needs of the student. I work with the student to identify their strengths and areas to improve. I will usually begin a lesson with a short warm-up, a game, quiz or revision activity. Then, I like to build up an understanding of the lesson topic with short high-paced tasks that will build confidence and provide a challenge.
Highly experienced teacher of Eng Lang and Lit in both the maintained and private sectors. Common Entrance, GCSE and AS/ A Level. Excellent references and proven, highly successful targeted tutoring to your child's needs and strengths. Tutoring in both UK and abroad.
I prepare all my classes in advance and provide the extra reading material you might need. I structure the lesson off what you're required to do (for classes, exams etc) and use your own book as a starting point so that you can be confident with both the basics and extra informations to add some flare to your preparation.
I am currently studying my degree in BA Hons English and Drama and can other my tutoring services for all students, up to A-Levels. I will base my lessons on what you feel are your weaknesses and will provide you with constant support. I am in the second year of my degree and I plan on using my degree to pursue a career in education.
I teach by following the curriculum that a student needs to know (be it 11+, GCSE, A-level etc), but I adapt this to spark the interest of each individual student. I do this by getting to know them and choosing literature and articles that I believe they will enjoy, this enhances the chance that they will absorb that information they are given.
My teaching method is a controlled and organised approach to texts, focusing on verbal discussion and extraction of information, followed by precise short write-ups and summaries of texts. This will be followed by longer essay-style questions and mock examinations which will be marked in line with the mark-scheme and feedback will be distributed.
I’m a current postgraduate looking to inspire students who may need a little extra help connecting with English and Literature to achieve their full potential. I can teach a diverse range of topics and time periods and have taught many of the GCSE and A Level set texts. I have particular expertise in Victorian and Modern Literature.
I am a postgraduate student at Downing College, Cambridge University. My research focuses on the work of Vladimir Nabokov and Henry James. Because my MPhil is focused on American Literature, I would be most useful tutoring on writers from this period. That said, I'm more than happy to cover most periods and writers.
Dear students! I was an A level student just as yourselves, and I am open to giving lessons to anyone who is struggling with their A levels, regardless of where you are or think you are in your exam grades! My techniques in teaching, are short snap-revised video lessons or using pictures as well as in typing, depending on the subject topic at hand, in a cohesive, short and easy to understand...
I focus on syllabus and exam technique. My usual method is to set an agreed question from your current syllabus, write it up and send it me for review, assessment, annotation and additional ideas. We meet up, online preferably, and go over the answer together working through point by point. You'll get a copy of my annotations, notes and ideas to take away.
I have a first class BA in Education with English Literature from the University of Cambridge. This means that I have both the subject knowledge when it comes to English, as well as an understanding of how people learn and what makes the best teachers. I have been tutoring for 8 years now, and love engaging with so many different students over subjects that I love.
I believe that all students should learn in a way that is tailored specifically to them themselves. I am availible to tutor up to A-level/(Advanced) Higher in my subject areas. My lessons will follow a plan, depending on the specific needs of the student, one which helps students engage with the literature in a casual yet exciting way.
I being by asking students to analyse new pieces of literature at the start of tutoring sessions. Looking at language, structure, form and context, this is a good way for students to warm up before looking at set texts within their course. I use various forms of learning, including drawing, speech writing and will advise YouTube videos to watch as a follow up to our lessons.
I have a PhD from the English Department at the University of Southampton and many years of experience teaching English literature, poetry and academic skills (research, writing, referencing, presentation skills, time management, digital resources) to BA and MA students.
I am a 30 year old male and a qualified teacher with over six years of diverse teaching experience. Having studied languages myself in an academic setting, I understand the individual needs of learning and the immense pleasure that can be drawn from studying languages. My lessons begin with a diagnostic approach and I then prepare classes and course for individual students or small groups.
My teaching method is very personalised to the individual students as from my experience having a blanket approach to teaching does not suit every student. For students sitting GCSE or A Level exams my teaching is centered around their specific syllabus and specification but with an emphasis on what the student enjoys within this to keep them enthusiastic and make the lessons enjoyable.
I am able to give classes to students that are A Level/GCSE standard or below. I would like for any students I teach to feel relaxed and unintimidated by my teaching, but for them to be willing to learn and genuinely interested in the subjects they require help with. I would begin by asking them what topics or areas they need help with and will work from there.
My teaching method is always student-centred. I feel I work with an equal balance of what the student requires, in terms of examinations and assessments, and what works best for them. I see myself as a Faciliator, in that the approach I take enables students to develop critical thinking skills and promote self-learning.
I structure my lessons based on what the student feels they need the most help with. For example, I will read out poetry analysis tools and words and explain them and then get the student to reiterate what I have said step by step until we are both sure they understand it.
My overall approach to tutoring heavily relies on strong communication skills, as I believe that any student can receive top grades if they are able to understand what is needed from them and how they can achieve this. It is also important that they feel comfortable in their learning environment, and feel confident that they can reach their targets.
I adapt my lessons/ sessions to the individual. I like making things fun and easy to understand, especially if a pupil is uncertain on a subject/ topic. I'm very welcoming, and always am open to suggestions. I'm able to help with GCSE's and A-Level, but can do any educational level if needed.
I tutor according to the needs of the student. So, if your strengths are in textual analysis but you struggle with structure then we will focus on that area. I prefer to work closely to the various syllabuses of the exam boards, and when exam time arrives I feel it is especially helpful to look closely at the examiner's reports from previous years.
I have a relaxed approach and try to have fun, but I do expect my students to work hard and do their homework. I also expect students to prepare for every lesson. My classes are student centred and I will therefore expect students to come prepared to participate fully. I will make the lessons as varied and interesting as possible.
A Cambridge graduate with degrees in Classics, English and Theatre Studies, I also have years of experience as a fine art dealer, filmmaker, writer and stand up comic. I can offer help with most arts subjects up to A-level. I teach through conversation.
I like to keep classes fast-paced and conversational, relying on the student to take an active engagement with the text. I can tutor any age range from primary up to degree and I'm really just looking for a student with the right attitude who wants to develop.
As a student, I am used to teaching a variety of levels, and I adapt my teaching to each student, as I do not believe that there is one universal method for all students. I spend time over the first session working out how my student learns and I adapt my method accordingly.
I personalise my teaching to suit individual requirements and have a kinaesthetic approach to teaching along with a creative and practical flair to engage and inspire. I focus on the use of examination language in order to familiarise students with the concepts and to prepare for any examinations.
I offer hour-long lessons which can either be directed by the student, where you bring me what you are struggling with and we tackle these issues head on together, or you can tell me what you are studying and I can look into your syllabus and prepare structured lessons around this to best prepare you for examination.
