Personal Description:

I am a Cambridge graduate and an experienced secondary teacher of English (Language, Literature and Combined courses), specialising in exam preparation for GCSE, A Level, IB, University Entry and essay writing masterclasses. I have a wide and deep literary and linguistic knowledge and I am an excellent essay writer. I have a clean enhanced DBS disclosure. I am available to work in the Brighton/Hove/Worthing area as well as further afield on request.

Tutoring Experience:

I have nine years of teaching and tutoring experience in the UK and abroad. Success stories incude: a tutee whose mark rose from an E to a B at GCSE; a tutee who successfully retook Scottish Highers literature exams and then, with my tuition, prepared for a Cambridge admissions interview at which he was successful; a student with specific learning needs who struggled with exam preparation, aced his A Level English Language exams; a tutee who needed guidance with the more complex aspects of the English Literature course (literary theory and history) gained an A after many years of lower marks; a tutee who needed guidance with a literature PhD application was accepted onto her course.

Tutoring Approach:

My sessions are strongly goal orientated. The end product - exam, coursework, dissertation - is our focus and is always kept in view. Each session works clearly and pragmatically towards the goal through a series of focused and personalised learning activities. Through intensive work - writing, reading and discussion - and immediate constructive feedback on what needs to be improved, the students gain confidence in their new knowledge and skills.

I am flexible and responsive. I choose the approach that works best, changing and adapting where necessary. I work to build trust between myself, students and parents, encouraging students to achieve their maximum potential.

I get results.
