Osman

Slough Tutor

Having successfully completed a PhD (2011) in History in 2011 following a BA in History and Masters in Medieval History, I have recently authored a book on Cultural imagery in medieval poetry, a university text published by E.J. Brill in 2017. I have tutored English for GCSE and A-Level students for many years, specialising in language analysis and literary interpretation.

Tutoring Experience

I have tutored students preparing for SATs, GCSEs and A-Levels, have taught all major texts studied at GCSE and A-Level, including poetry anthologies. I have also taught at Royal Holloway, University of London, where I recently completed a post-doctorate tenure in Politics and International Relations 2012-2015. I have further tutored, most recently, child genius Jasamrit Rahala, Slough.

Tutoring Approach

I have learnt that what many students often find difficult is language analysis in their prose and poetry texts. It is also what usually deprives them of the higher marks. My tutoring is tailored to ensure that students gain a thorough understanding of texts, and are able to effectively interpret and comment on them. I prepare students for outstanding pieces of written work and also help with general English work and exam practice.
