My goal is to share my love of literature and make studying for your English GCSE or A Level, dare I say it, actually fun! I can help you deepen your understanding of a difficult text, and learn how to analyse it critically and come to your own conclusions. I believe the way to 'understand' a piece of literature is to discuss it with another person, so my classes are informal and based on a mutual sharing of ideas - basically a one-on-one book club!
I am fresh out of school, off to study English at the University of Cambridge next year. I work in a bookshop, write poetry, short stories and plays, and have an infectious enthusiasm for all things literary! I have never formally tutored before, but at school I loved contributing to class discussions and having debates with my classmates. I am looking to tutor students taking GCSE / A Level English, with my recent experience in the subject and exam system making me an ideal resource for perfecting exam technique, developing the ability to think critically and creatively, and most importantly cultivating a genuine love and understanding of literature.

I am a keen writer of short stories and poetry. Most recently one of my poems was shortlisted in a nationwide youth competition judged by Carol Ann Duffy and Imtiaz Dharker. At school I was involved in Model United Nations and Debating societies, and during Sixth Form I represented my school at local and nationwide debating competitions run by the English Speaking Union and the Oxford Union.
