Personal Description:

Last year, I graduated Nottingham Trent Univeristy with a first-class honours degree in English and I am currently studying a MRes qualification in English Literary research. My aim is to become a doctor in English by completing a PhD, which will start in September 2018.

English is a core, significant and enriching subject and one in which I am completely immersed in. I have studied practically all of Shakespeare's plays at university-level, many of the classics and also numerous contemporary pieces of literature. I can also help with literary theory, elements of philosophy and American literature.

To see a student comprehend a term, book or device that was previously very confusing to them, provides me with a sense of accomplishment. Therefore, if I was your tutor, I would thoroughly enjoy and value my time towards helping you and your English ability.

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored many different levels of English: from Key Stage One to GCSE. I have a lot of experience and resources available for tutoring the AQA specification for GCSE as well as KS1, 2 and 3.

I currently tutor a 15 year-old girl for AQA GCSE Higher Level; a seven-year old boy for KS2 Maths and English and a 12-year old boy for KS3. The later student's main concern is that he struggles to remember what he has been taught in school. I have been through some English areas with him, such as apostrophes, rhymes, imagery, spellings, a few books and key grammatical devices to help reinforce what he has already learnt while at school.

In the last academic year, I have helped a non-native, six-year old girl to speak and read English Language; two boys, aged eight and eleven respectively, with KS2 English; one five-year old girl with basic reading and writing skills and a GCSE AQA Foundation student.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring can be any way you would like it to be, but as a guide… Firstly, I would begin by asking what areas actually need my help. I find going through the specification helps to identify which topics I should plan for in the upcoming weeks.

Then I would create activities that would be fun, to encourage engagement, as well as academic, to ensure progress at every session.
I would, at times, test them on certain elements to see what has been learnt, but also reward them when they have achieved.

I will also use the National Curriculum in England provided by the Department for Education as a guide to what the student will be assessed on, to ensure consistency with their exams and what is taught at their school.

Furthermore, I hope this suggests that I will be a fair, fun and honest tutor that will support, guide and advise you.

Please message me if you have any more questions.
