I am a qualified English teacher, with experience teaching at secondary school-level. My approach to teaching is always a focus on the student and their needs, so my lessons are planned to give you the best help possible.
I am confident at adapting lessons, to suit the abilities and experiences of various students. I have done work supporting students who were struggling with English, and challenging students who need that extra push with their work.
My teaching is always focused on helping to improve skills, usually involving lots of discussion and active working.
I have experience teaching in a secondary school environment, teaching Year 7 to Year 13 students. In terms of GCSE and A-Level English, I am confident with all texts commonly studied. The schools I have taught in have all done the AQA English GCSE.
At GCSE, I have taught: Macbeth, An Inspector Calls, AQA Poetry, A Christmas Carol, Jekyll and Hyde, and Lord of the Flies.
At A-Level, I have taught the OCR English Literature A-Level. The texts taught have been: Hamlet, The Duchess of Malfi, Dracula, The Bloody Chamber, A Streetcar Named Desire, Christina Rossetti's poetry, and Carol Ann Duffy's poetry.
I teach primary, key stage three, GCSE and A-Level courses. My particular expertise in exam board are AQA for GCSE and OCR for A-Level.
My classes are focused on helping to build skills. Initially, sessions will focus on establishing your knowledge so far, and where you would benefit from additional support. This may be through discussion or through exam-style questions. The content of later lessons will depend on the focus areas identified in the initial lessons. Later lessons may involve: reading through texts together, working through passages of text, assessing example exam responses, supported exam question writing, analytical activities.
I completed my PGCE at Newman University.
I received a 2:1 BA English degree from University of Exeter.
I achieved an A* in both English Language and English Literature at GCSE, and an A in English at A-Level.
I am also confident tutoring for 11+ preparation, having attended grammar school myself.
