I'm a thorough and passionate English teacher who is able to work some week nights and during the weekend. I live in Bristol. I also teach at a secondary school in Trowbridge. I have a 2:1 degree in English Literature from the University of Edinburgh.
I've been teaching English for the last ten years. I've taught AQA English Literature, English Language and all three specifications of English Language and Literature at A-level.
I like to inspire confidence, particularly with potentially challenging exams. I do a lot of work explaining what the examination requires, so that students are secure and feel able to cope with the exam. Discussion is an important way of stimulating ideas and, on a technical level, I don't mind explaining grammatical rules. When reading, I encourage students to look for particular aspects of texts to allow them to be more proficient individually.
