Personal Description:

I specialise in A-Level and GCSE/IGCSE English. If students have disappointing grades or want more challenging approaches for university entrance, I help them develop their skills.

I am a professional full-time academic tutor who is experienced in working with teenagers.

Tutoring Experience:

I trained at the Institute of Education and at City & Islington Sixth Form College in London.

I teach all aspects of English Literature and English Language, and specialise in reading and writing comprehension for English Language GCSE/IGCSE, poetry, narrative voice, Shakespeare, complex texts like Paradise Lost and Heart of Darkness, 17th Century literature and ideas, post-colonial literature, literary theory for A-Level students.

Tutoring Approach:

By the end of the first lesson, I will have an understanding of the student's learning needs so that we can agree on how best to continue. With my support, students motivate themselves to be creative and disciplined. Students of all abilities usually discover that they actually enjoy analysing texts and working with language. They are then equipped to meet the exam board assessment objectives and get good grades.

I used to write copy in the communications/public relations industry and can help students to develop a clear writing style.
