Personal Description:

I am an English tutor and post-graduate with a First Class Honours degree in English Literature as well as two Master Degrees. Currently, I am writing my PhD thesis in Creative Writing, part-time, at Goldsmiths, University of London.
I'm a conscientious, hard working and patient person with a positive outlook on life.
I have a clean enhanced DBS disclosure.

Tutoring Experience:

I have six years experience in tutoring KS3 and GCSE English in Brighton & Hove. I have also spent time tutoring undergraduates, and continue teaching as part of my PhD in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Tutoring Approach:

I will help in preparing for controlled assessments and exams, improving essay writing skills (including understanding what the examiner is looking for in a model answer) in addition to enhancing reading, listening and speaking skills.

In our one-to-one session, I give my student the attention and direction so often lacking in the classroom. After an initial in-depth conversation, in which I assess the student's strengths and weaknesses, I tailor lessons according to their particular needs and levels of understanding. Then, after running through the syllabus together, we determine areas of difficulty and, using past papers and set texts, work through appropriate topics.

I believe strongly in engaging the student’s interest in a way that develops confidence in, and deeper understanding of, their subject. I am passionate about English and want my students to achieve their full potential.
