Need help with GCSE or A Level English? Have a teacher be your tutor. Literature is my speciality.

Methodology

My approach to teaching depends on the student. Each student has different needs and when teaching 1x1 I evaluate them in the first session to see what methods might suit them best. In a group setting I tend to approach the subject simply at first and try to make it as memorable as possible. Observation-Repitition-Reinforcement.

Background

I am a trainee teacher at Edge Hill University and have a background in Psychology, but I will specialise in English Literature as well. I have a bachelors degree in psychology from the University of Liverpool and a Masters in Health psychology from Liverpool John Moores. I will be teaching English Lit and Psychology primarily but I can tutor in related subjects (as I studied modules on religion and sociology at university as well). I received an A* for my English A Level and in some of my assessments scored 100%.

I am disabled and use a wheelchair so I can only teach from my home or Liverpool Central Library, or via video call.

Claire helped me through an online English course and she was superb!
Not only was she very professional, but efficient and thorough too. I couldn't have gotten through the course without her.

If you're looking for a tutor who is both passionate and inspirational, Claire is the tutor for you. I've known Claire since university, and although we were studying different subjects we met through a writing group. I was immediately impressed by her writing ability and her knowledge of the works we aspired to. I learned a lot from her without her ever really trying to teach me. As much effort as she put into her hobby, it was nothing compared to the enthusiasm she had for her studies. In spite of ill health she not only completed her course but went on to Post Graduate studies too. Her determination made her an excellent student then and will make her an excellent tutor now.

Claire is well versed in psychology from her undergraduate and postgraduate studies. Her written and oral communication skills are outstanding. She is conscientious, responsible and patient, and always takes the time to see a task through to completion.
