"Be not afraid of greatness" Twelfth Night, Shakespeare. Feeling inspired? In need of an English tutor? Get in touch.

Methodology

Primary:
Reception:


I have a wealth of experience teaching all ages and year groups. Where I work, I’m the teacher who teaches reception children how to read and hold a pencil. Believe it or not, it takes a lot of hard work, patience and encouragement, but it’s totally worth it!
I can guide your child through their different phonic sounds
Encourage reading comprehension through both verbal and written stimulation.
Verbal feedback and interactive activities catering to the individual needs of your child.
A dedicated Action Plan highlighting areas of weakness, areas of strength, whether your children are on track, key target areas which will be focused on and achievement to be expected within a given time period.

Year 1 :

Year 1 is an important year, pivotal in ensuring that your child has a strong foundation in the run-up to their year 2 SATS. As a parent, you can expect the following from me:
-Work on constructing sentences and basic grammar
-Ironing out of phonics errors
-Preparation for the new Phonics Screening tests which are sat in June, at the end of the year.
-Development of Comprehension skills
-Development of Creative Writing skills

- A dedicated Action Plan highlighting areas of weakness, areas of strength, whether your children are on track, key target areas which will be focused on and achievement to be expected within a given time period.

Year 2:
- A dedicated Action Plan highlighting areas of weakness, areas of strength, whether your children are on track, key target areas which will be focused on and achievement to be expected within a given time period.
- Weekly Reading Log with reading activities
-Preparation for year 2 SATS- comprehension
-Preparation for SATS – SPAG paper
__Focus on Creative writing and techniques
-Understanding of word classes in preparation for exams
-Comprehension work

Years 3-6:

An approach aiming at three key areas: comprehension, grammar and punctuation and Writing.

-Weekly homework
-An Action Plan for each child highlighting areas of weakness, areas of strength, whether your children are on track, key target areas which will be focused on and achievement to be expected within certain time periods.
-Weekly feedback
-Reading Diary to encourage reading
-End of year exam preparation
-Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Work

KS3:

With the dramatic changes to the GCSE syllabus, particularly in English, schools are having to change the way they teach KS3 to ensure that pupils are ready for their exams. As a result, it has become even more important to prepare your child, iron out any issues and areas of weakness, and prepare them for their GCSE exams well in advance. I have created my own successful KS3 model which has been proven to work, and this is the model I will use with your child to help bring up confidence and give them the best start in their GCSE prep:

-An Action Plan highlighting areas of weakness, areas of strength, whether your children are on track, key target areas which will be focused on and achievement to be expected within certain time periods.
-Intensive focus on the PEE structure to prepare their analytical skills
-Intensive focus on terminology required for Literature
-In depth focus on Creative Writing and expectations in an exam
-A deep focus on 19th century literature
-A step-by-step approach through understanding poetry and knowing what to analyse
-Reading Log to ensure that your child is reading texts to prepare them for examination set texts
- Guide to how to structure an essay
-Nurturing and building of confidence regarding HOW pupils and WHAT pupils should analyse.
-Exam Practice
-Weekly homework and feedback

*When your child is ready, I can then begin going through their actual GCSE set texts with them before they are covered in your child’s school, to ensure that your child is confident and two steps ahead.*

GCSE:

GCSE exams are a stressful but important milestone for your child, and it’s become a lot more stressful with the changes to the curriculum, especially where English is concerned, due to the closed-book context of each exam as well as the fact that your child has to study more texts!

As a result, you can expect the following support from me:

-An Action Plan highlighting areas of weakness, areas of strength, whether your children are on track, key target areas which will be focused on and achievement to be expected within certain time periods.
-Guidance through each of your child’s set texts
-Teaching of techniques to support analysis of unseen poems
-Step by step guide highlighting how to approach each question
-Guiding your child through what examiners look for in student responses
- Teaching of your child’s poetry cluster of 15 poems and what to analyse
-Exam and essay practice
-Intensive work on how to structure an essay for each exam paper
-Ironing out of any errors in your child’s analytical structure
-Intensive working of a structured writing frame for each language question for both papers
-Focus on how to approach creative writing and key areas examiners will look at
-Marked feedback of work and intensive focus on redrafting to improve your
child’s skills
-Weekly homework and feedback

Experience

Are you still looking for an English tutor?
If your answer is yes, then I guess I`d better tell you a bit about myself...

Despite being a Student of the English BA at Queen Mary University, London- a Russell Group University, I also have plenty of experience within the education sector. Over the last 2 years, I have worked at a college in London, teaching GCSE English Language and A level English Language and Literature. I have also been tutoring privately,over the last 4 years, both 1:1 and at an Ofsted approved tuition centre- for which I was given the humongous to design new resources for our English Primary, KS3 and GCSE departments. I therefore have a vast understanding of the National Framework and Examining Board requirements, as well as the best sorts of resources to help your child.

In creating my own lessons, individually tailored to the needs of your child, and a teaching style based on simplifying the most complex of concepts and texts, my teaching aims to build your child’s confidence and ensure they understand key techniques until they are able to utilise them independently and effectively- this is unlike those who teach their students complex techniques and expect them to memorise and cram everything before their exams!

For me, teaching is about building confidence and making your child enjoy the subject. A child who feels confident in a subject can come to enjoy it and therefore thrive in it.
