« Perfect! As a History student I consulted Jake for a discussion on Gothic Literature. I was a bit worried that Jake would think I needed A-Level knowledge. These worries were unnecessary. Jake was most willing to teach me many insights into Gothic literature far beyond A Level exam settings. We had informative and pleasant discussions and I learned more than I expected. Jake is a very kind, calm and impressively intelligent person. A big thank you! »

Second-year English Tripos student at Cambridge University. I can tutor in GCSE and A - Level English, History and Drama.

Methodology

My Teaching Methodology is based on the individual learning style, and requirements of each student. Ensuring that there are clear and achievable short term and long term aims is a priority. The student will demonstrate an understanding of the problem presented at the start of each lesson. Within English especially this involves an enhanced and deep evaluative and analytical approach to a text, and crafting essays that hit the highest levels of the mark scheme.

A typical length of a lesson is an hour. However this can be extended

I can help with GCSE and A-Level English, History and Drama. As well as with the ELAT (English Literature Admissions Test) and Oxbridge interview preparation. I can also help in constructing and proofreading personal statements.

Experience

Hello, my names Jake and I am a second-year English Tripos student at Cambridge University. I attended a state school in South London, and I am passionate about helping people achieve their academic goals that will inevitably aid their personal and professional long term aims.

Jake's response

Very passionate about Gothic Literature, and willing to interrogate and confront critical viewpoints evaluating them against her own knowledge
