Hi, I'm Jess and I'm a mature student awaiting the commencement of my PhD. My passions in life are literature, horses and helping other people reach their potential! I have a BA in English Literature and a MA in Victorian Studies (an interdisciplinary course split between literature and history).

I have worked as an hourly paid lecturer at a college teaching post 16 pupils functional skills English and GCSE English; have worked as a lecturer at ESOL centre teaching functional skills English and GCSE English; have worked as a guest lecturer at University giving occasional lectures to third year students; have vast experience writing and giving papers at academic conferences. I travel to you or we can agree a suitable meeting place (a local library or cafe). I graduated in 2015 and since then have been working as an English tutor and supporting students in Birmingham, Solihull and North Coventry. I have therefore been working as a private tutor for over 3 years.

I am more than happy to boost your skills and confidence leading up to an exam, subject specific guidance, to assist with essay writing, dissertation support and proof reading and editing of forthcoming publications. I completed an access course (humanities route-way and passed with distinctions) so I am also available to offer support to adults completing that qualification. My specialty is literature and I focus on boosting confidence and grades, as I believe the two are essentially interchangeable and that when a rise in confidence is combined with hard work and determination an increase in grades is attainable. Whether you are looking for regular weekly sessions or ad-hoc sessions to help prepare for an exam or an essay deadline I should be able to support you.

I am able to offer tuition to students within and outside of my area with potential travel wider afield and with online tuition available regardless of locality.
