Reading English at Bristol, offering lessons to GCSE and below level students

Methodology

I am willing to teach all levels up to GCSE in English language and literature. I teach by attempting to impress my passion for the subject upon the student, whether this is by analysing texts and passages in past exam papers, or through general discursive analysis of poetry, novels and films I have read or seen.
I am a methodical tutor, a patient listener and a hard worker. I am also full of encouragement and belief that with determination anyone can improve tenfold in any subject, including English.

Background

I have had one previous student in English, who was Russian and he eventually secured a B in both Language and Literature, and therefore his place at his chosen Sixth Form. This was after his teachers had given him very little hope in any of his GCSEs. I joined him quite late on in his year, perhaps around March, and stayed with him until his exams in June/July.
