Media / Communication Studies
I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and love of reading literature –including drama, theatre, and film studies--and English language and culture. I have experience in teaching A level students from a range of backgrounds and cultures. I am qualified with an MA and PhD in English literature and also have wide experience of teaching English language, IELTS, and academic study skills. Nourishing all aspects of learning potential, my approach is to instill enthusiasm for the subject, together with improving skills and confidence in the student’s approach to learning, and writing.
I have taught for over 20 years at college and universities in the UK and overseas. I have tutored individual students and small groups from age 15 to adult learners, from GCSE’s to A levels and undergraduate levels including IELTS, English conversation, and cultural studies: also helping non-native English speakers and professional students with essay assignments, job and university application forms.
Learning and developing self-expression should be enjoyable and enriching experiences. My approach is to bring out the talents and abilities of each student, and to help them overcome any obstacles to gaining successful grades through developing skills and building confidence. I take a stress-free step by step detailed approach to course material, and give regular feedback on progress. I am here to help!
Focus--fun--fast progress--professional feedback--fantastic results!

We had 4 hours of conversation. Daphne adapted to my timetable and possibilities.
Her approach was to build on my confidence, and so we could have interesting lessons on reading, pronunciation and discussion on a literature classic book that I read during that time I was in Eastbourne. Now I will continue to practice on my own.
I would recommend Daphne because I think she will find the right approach for different needs, according to the different students.
