I am a fully qualified A level and GCSE English teacher, currently employed in Oxfordshire. I am very friendly and approachable in my teaching style, and always try to make tutoring sessions as fun and relatable as possible for my students. I am fully trained in AQA GCSE English Language, which is interchangeable with all the other specifications for GCSE English Language (and I have tutored all specifications). I have just moved to the Didcot area, and am currently available to tutor (limited availability as I now have several clients).
I have been tutoring for 3 years, and teaching for over 5. My tutees have consistently achieved at least 2 levels above their predicted grades, year on year. I have several years of experience teaching A level Lang/Lit, Language, Literature and my specialty, Creative Writing. I have taught GCSE English for several years and also have a great deal of experience teaching AQA GCSE English, particularly to private tutees. I also moderate for other exam boards and mark GCSE English papers in the summer, so I know exactly what will get my students the best marks. At my previous school, my classes had the highest English GCSE pass rates.
I love getting to know my students and developing a rapport with them. I like to teach in a fun and creative way as I feel keeping students engaged is the best way to get results. I will always listen to concerns and try to tailor my teaching very much to the individual. I demand good results and so far I've got them! My students feel comfortable, supported and enthusiastic in my lessons, and I aim to create the same atmosphere throughout my tutoring sessions.
