enjoy language, novels, poetry and plays. I aim to help all students set themselves ambitious but realistic goals, whether that is to read aloud confidently, pass GCSE English or get an A* in A level English Literature, and then to meet those goals and go on to face new challenges with positivity and determination. Recent pupil success stories include one who was predicted a G at GCSE but achieved a C grade after only half...

in Europe, and leading creative writing workshops in UK schools. My lessons are carefully prepared according to the needs of the individual student. I aim to share my passion for English language and literature, and to foster enjoyment for the subject while focusing on exam success. From the parents of a previous tutee: 'Phoebe was flexible, well prepared and felt responsible for our son Max's success. No wonder he passed the exam high-flying!" - Mr...

Bachelors: Writing, Directing and Performance (2017)
skills in communicating in an entertaining and informative way. During my degree I have run assessed workshops and seminars for different age groups and abilities. My A level in English developed my skills in the language. I believe in a personally tailored approach to teaching. What works for some people won't work for others, so I am committed to finding the best approach to suit you. With that in mind, I will focus my approach...

for several subjects in the A level humanities department, including philosophy, government & politics and history. I have also completed the Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector qualification. Inciting enthusiasm and fostering the student's learning capabilities are my priorities when tutoring at all levels of study. I aim to encourage lively conversation on the topic at hand and adapt to the student's particular learning style, in order to encourage critical thinking and memorisation...

level understanding and application. As an experienced teacher, I am very familiar with how schools operate and assess children and I use the same systems for assessment as they do in school so I understand where your child's understanding is and the steps needed to ensure they progress. I use a wide range of resources and teaching styles depending on the needs and interests of your child. Their progress is recorded and then plans made...

to find the correct one to suit each individual. If something doesn't work, we just find an alternative route. I find communicating with younger children very easy and seem to be able to form relationships fairly quickly. I thoroughly enjoy watching the progress being made as a child develops educationally and socially. I start with a new tutee with a fairly comprehensive assessment to ensure I fully understand the needs of the child. Every child...

York
College: A Level Chemistry (2013)
Maths and Science voluntarily in my free time. I quickly realised that I have a talent for explaining things in a different way to how the teachers might, helping students to understand in a way that a text book can't teach them. I'm fairly flexible and am happy to do anything the student might want to help them succeed. I am happy to set questions, work through questions, help with homework, study past papers together...

Bachelors: First Class Honours in Theatre: Writing, Directing, and Performance (2017)
tutoring experience as during my A-levels I was a tutor to children aged 11-16 in, again, a variety of subjects. My approach to tutoring is a tailored one. Personally, I don't learn from simply being told how to do something and my approach reflects this; I tend to use examples, visual images, and sometimes physical explorations of subjects to aid understanding. My degree in theatre has taught me to be flexible and also how to...

York
Masters: MA in Cultures of Empire, Resistance and Postcoloniality (2013)
tutor. It's a careful balance between covering all of the important, nuanced and intricate details of the curriculum, and making sure that students love literature, enjoy what they're doing, and realise that learning is not necessarily purely an uphill slog! I try to find individual methods for the variety of learning styles I encounter, but generally my approach to tutoring involves a short period of instruction - working through technique, vocabulary and grammar rules -...

Bachelors: English literature degree (2018)
potential which I found very rewarding. I also worked as a brownie leader which made me realise how much I enjoy teaching and working with children. My approach is solely centered around the students needs and what they feel they would like to improve upon to make them feel more comfortable with the subject. I offer hourly one to one sessions and would ask that the student comes prepared, knowing what they would like to...
