Recent English Literature graduate in Sheffield offering English literature lessons either in person or online

Methodology

I will give lessons for A Level, GCSE students or below. My techniques are flexible and can be discussed depending on the student's individual needs. I understand that no two students are the same. I care deeply about providing quality tuition that is also fun and really engages the student and relates to their personal interests.

Experience

I am a recent graduate of English Literature with a 2.1 degree from the University of Leeds. I have tutored casually before but am now looking to go into it more seriously. In the past my students have achieved higher GCSE and A Level results as a result of my tutoring.
