Oxford English student offering English literature lessons for all levels in Oxford

My previous tutoring experience has been with secondary school students - ranging from year 8 to sixth form - and so I would say I am best equipped to tutor at this level. My particular areas of strength for tutoring would be in close textual commentary, as well as understanding criticism and examination or revision technique. I think the most important aspect of the tutoring process is to encourage and affirm a confident - whilst nuanced - personal reaction in the student to the text, whether it be a poem or an article. To achieve this I aim to equip my student with a useful 'toolbox' of critical techniques which they can use to approach a text.

Rates may vary dependent on the travel arrangement for the tutoring, however this can be discussed specific to the situation.

I teach literature, test prep, modern literature, poetry, text commentary. For the level(s)GCSE, as level, a level.
I give lessons in person, at my home or the student's home.
I give lessons by Webcam.
I am logged in, this month.

Harry's Experience

I am currently loving an English literature degree at St. Catherine's College, Oxford. This course is comprehensive of English literature - spanning from the 9th century to the present day - so I'll be equipped to tutor on any weird or wonderful text or topic you throw at me! During my time at school I obtained A* grades in English literature at GCSE and A level, and have a good knowledge of the requisite exam technique for both of these exam formats, as well as the Oxford entrance exam.
