Offering assistance for G.C.S.E English Lit & Lang lessons in London for school pupils 11-16 or assistance with writing a dissertation for English BA degree Students. Also English/German/French supply

Methodology

My method is to meet with the pupil/student define what the problem areas are then base my classes on how to tackle anything the pupil/student might have problems with & strengthen these areas by talking through the main difficulties & giving the pupil a technique on how to manage the work or the dissertation. I have a set method for writing the dissertation I helped a friends at University achieve a 2:1 BA English Degree & sit with the pupil going through his/her workload with set texts in mind & even with a novel/s in mind for him or her to read that s/he might find enjoyable depending on what s/he like to read to develop & strengthen their English in all areas where the pupil finds they could do with the tutors input. I go through each topic eg paragraphs, language in letters/newspapers, poetry, punctuation, grammar, reading comprehension, writing comprehension. I can sit with the pupil & go through his/her homework so that homework is not so daunting fun, easy to manage & enjoyable. I can set other small tasks but the pupil must be willing to set aside time to do each task set & I will make sure the task does not interfere with his school work is simple & that school work is priority. I am extremely patient with my pupils/students I can improve their language skills to grade A/B standard for pupils & my student friend got a 2:1 when I helped her write her dissertation properly.

Background

I have been giving lessons for a few months now with great results. I have taught over 30 pupils English & I have helped my university friend write her English Lit BA Hons Degree dissertation. I have got one pupil onto a 'B' Grade GCSE & have class based & home tutoring experience. I was taught at a Girls School originally by excellent teachers, I went through both Oxford & Cambridge University by 16. I went on to get my BA Hons Degree from a London University & am now a Professionally trained Actress.
