One on one tutoring in English literature and language (up to GCSE) for students of any ability.

Methodology

For KS1/KS2/KS3 students: I will try to help the student improve their comprehension skills, and work with them on their homework and classwork- really any issues they are having with English I would be more than happy to provide some guidance. I will also help them improve on the specific feedback their teachers are giving them.

For GCSE students: I would work with the student by reading through passages of their exam texts with them and helping them to analyse the language and themes present. I would then help them frame this analysis within the wider context of the text- (ie, the author's personal life, the culture of the time period when the book/poems were written and published, the wider impact of the text). I would read through the work they have done in class and build on the feedback from their teachers to help you improve. We would look closely at the exam guidelines and what the exam board expects from students and help cater the students answers to these criteria.

For younger students: I would help you with your comprehension skills, and work with you on your homework and classwork- really any issues you are having with English I would be more than happy to give you some guidance. I will also help you to improve on the specific feedback your teachers are giving you.

Experience

I am currently in my second year at university studying law, but I always excelled at and adored English when I was at school, managing to secure two A*s at GCSE and an A at A Level. I have worked as a classroom assistant in English classes before, and have also mentored students who struggled with reading and analysing literature.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £10/h

Details

Please be aware that if you want lessons at your home I will charge for the additional travel costs, but the amount will vary depending on how far from me your chosen location is. As a student who does not have a car, it simply would not be feasible for me to make journeys all around Birmingham using trains, buses or taxis if I'm only charging £10 an hour. I hope this is understandable.

PROFILE

English has always been one of my biggest passions- since I was a child I have loved to read and analyse literature, and this passion has always translated to excellent grades. I pride myself on being eloquent, articulate and able to motivate and encourage others, which of course translates perfectly to tutoring. Equally, I would consider myself friendly, helpful and approachable, and I have experience working as a mentor to younger students that has allowed me to develop these skills.

AS Level- English Language, A

RELEVANT WORK EXPERIENCE

Classroom Assistant, Ysgol Penyffordd, Flintshire — 2015
I worked in a primary school for a week, helping the year three teacher with her class. I worked with small groups of three children at a time on an art project. I also helped students from multiple year groups with their reading out loud. By the end of the week, I felt that I knew each of the children personally. It was an extremely valuable experience for me, as it really confirmed the possibility of careers working as a mentor.

Peer Mentor, Castell Alun High School, Flintshire — 2015
I worked one on one with a year 7 pupil while I was in year eleven as part of my Welsh Baccalaureate qualification. We would read aloud together and talk about the themes from the novel and analyse the language. We would also work on homework tasks together, and I would try to help clarify points of difficulty and provide helpful solutions that the student could actually take forward and use on her own in the rest of her work.

Classroom Assistant, Castell Alun High School- 2016
I worked as a classroom assistant to multiple English teachers at my high school in my first year of sixth form, at the request of my school’s head of English. I would help the teachers in lessons by sitting with the children who were particularly struggling, giving them extra attention and the chance to ask questions without disrupting the teacher. I would read over their work with them and help correct grammatical mistakes.
