Personal Description:

I am a 23-year-old English teacher with a passion for my subject and a desire to pass this on to others. I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a 2:1 MA (hons) in English Literature and from the University of Edinburgh with a Masters in 'Literature and Modernity: 1900-Present' (Distinction). I am also a member of the PVG scheme and I am happy to show evidence of this prior to our first meeting.

Tutoring Experience:

I am experienced in tutoring students at both National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher level. For example, previous tutees have gone from a C pass to an A pass and a fail to a B pass.

I tutored 4 students this academic year (2017-2018) - three of whom achieved A's and one achieved a B. This was at National 5 and Higher level.

Having completed several essays and two dissertations, I have significant experience in essay writing and the analysis of language. These are vital components for the study of English at any level.

I am also happy to proofread any essays/dissertations on my area of expertise that are sent to me outside of tutoring hours.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is flexible and will be based on the needs of each individual tutee. This means I can effectively tailor each session to what is required. I like to look over a student's past work so that we can establish a baseline from which to work and improve upon. I aim to strike a balance between the practical skills needed for the exam and to encourage an individual's enthusiasm for English as a subject.
