Personal Description:

I am a confident, engaging and experienced teacher. I have a real passion for my subject, with a particular interest in poetry, Linguistics and the works of Shakespeare. I am a voracious reader and if my nose isn't buried in a book or a pile of marking, I can usually be found at the theatre or cinema indulging my obsession with the Bard!

Tutoring Experience:

From 2001-2015 I taught at a Nottinghamshire Academy, rated as Outstanding. I am an experienced and successful teacher who has mentored and supported a range of students at either end of the spectrum. I am able to hone the skills of the most able, whilst supporting those who struggle. I have helped many of my past pupils to achieve or exceed their target grades. I have a wealth of experience teaching AQA specifications in Literature and Language at GCSE and Language at A Level. In the past, I taught OCR English Language A Level for several years and, more recently, I have delivered CiE Language and Edexcel Literature at GCSE level. I have also had experience of teaching OCR Media Studies at GCSE and A Level. I am particularly experienced in preparing students for A Level Language coursework modules. I am currently an examiner for CiE iGCSE and AQA English Language A Level, specification B. I have been privately tutoring a range of students from years 7-13 for the last year, as well as offering regular one-to-one support to students in preparation for examination or coursework modules across several schools in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

Tutoring Approach:

I am enthusiastic and co-operative with the students I teach. I firmly believe enjoyment and challenge are the keys to success; I strive to engender my passion for Literature and language in my students. I am particularly strong at engaging students who lack confidence, are reluctant or difficult to engage. I am prepared to work hard for my pupils and am happy to research and teach any English qualification required. As an A Level Language teacher, I have an extensive and accurate knowledge of the complexities of grammar which allows me to help students make significant improvements in accuracy, written expression and vocabulary.
