University of Exeter English Literature student offering lessons in London for summer

Methodology

I base my classes on aiming to improve the overall writing style of the student. I aim to create a relaxed and friendly environment in order to achieve the best results. I tailor every class to suit the specific needs of the student. Previously I have helped to provide revision resources and help tackle sample essays and exam questions.

Background

I have an A* in both English Language and Literature GCSE and a A* in English Literature A Level. I am currently at the University of Exeter studying English. I have previously given guidance and sample essays to GCSE students at the Lady Eleanor Holles school. I also offer practical advice in terms of the most effective way of revising for an English exam.
