Personal Description:

I am a 46-year-old tutor with a Cambridge degree in English literature. Originally from London, I am now living in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.

Tutoring Experience:

I tutored extensively in London in English for GCSE and A-level, and have been a member of several agencies, including First Tutors and Oxford and Cambridge Tutors. I have been tutoring in Stratford-upon-Avon since 2013. I have an enhanced DBS certificate issued on September 16th 2013, and my registration number is 001418251861. I can provide evidence of this.

Tutoring Approach:

Many students, particularly when taking English for A-level, become worried when they realise it isn't the "soft" subject they thought it was going to be. I provide lessons which are intellectually rigorous but also enjoyable, building up students' confidence with essay writing and exam technique, as well as interpretation and comprehension. Many pupils have told me how enjoyable and helpful they have found my classes, and how it has helped them overcome anxieties regarding the subject. (One pupil jumped from being a 'C' student to getting an 'A' in his final exam, and his parents were good enough to tell me it was mostly my doing; another said she got more from just one of my Chaucer classes than she got out of her teacher at school in a week.) I can provide references from parents of current/previous students.
