I am a working professional with a First Class degree in English Literature. While studying, I tutored students who progressed from D grades to achieve A*s in their final exams (or from a grade 3 to a 9 with the current grading systems).
I primarily tutor in English Literature and Language, however, I also teach Biology. Having studied Biology and Chemistry up to A Level, and achieving 100% in my Biology exam I am aptly qualified.
I have a considerable amount of tutoring experience for GCSE and A Level students. I am experienced in all major exam styles of GCSE, iGCSE and A Level and have tutored to many exam boards such as AQA, Edexcel, OCR.
A following are some testimonials from parents and tutees that are not available through this website:
Having Kim as a tutor has made me not only more confident in my English lessons and exams but also in other topics when structuring my answers. As she is a close age to me I find it easier to relate to her as a tutor. Before my poetry exam I felt confident in how I was going to structure and answer the question. Before I had Kim as a tutor my grades in English Literature and Language were worryingly low and I was not confident at all. However I now feel ten times more confident in my English all round; I would definitely recommend Kim!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all the support you have given my daughter Rachel with her English tuition. Rachel tells me that she loves the fact that you have recently been through GCSEs, A Levels and are now doing a degree, so can relate to her. She states that you explain everything really well and ensure that she is clear on the marking scheme. Your support over the past has been very reassuring for Rachel and we appreciate it very much. I would definitely recommend your tutoring service to friends.

As a parent with a son that was approaching his GCSE's, booking Kim for English has made a huge difference to my son. Kim was incredibly efficient and accommodating when it came to booking and organising subjects and the teaching was great. My son enjoyed his tutorials and really liked Kim. Additionally for me as the parent, it was good to be able to discuss my sons progress with Kim. I cannot recommend Kim enough and will happily use her and her company as my sons "go to" should he ever need help again. Thank you!

Top grade students have the knowledge, the exam technique and self-confidence and so these are the three areas that I focus on in my lessons.
I go through the core syllabus thoroughly, demonstrating what the examiner is looking for and how to answer the question in the shortest amount of time. Having tutored for over five years, and sat the examinations myself, I have a strong understanding of the types of questions that will be asked and how the questions must be answered.
By going through exam technique alongside the material, students will be in a better position for their exams rather than using the traditional approach of learning the material and then learning exam technique.

My daughter reported that she found her tutoring really helpful and had a turning point recognised by herself and Kim when she felt her confidence to tackle English GCSE increase substantially. I have very confidence that Kim's input has helped my daughter to do better in her English GCSE than she would have done without Kim's help.
