Personal Description:

I am an English and philosophy teacher of thirteen years’ experience who holds degrees from the universities of Sussex, London and Kent, as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in Secondary Education. In addition to teaching, I am an active researcher and academic writer, with specialisms in modernist literature, 19th-century realism, and existentialist philosophy. I write regular online articles on George Orwell, the subject of my thesis, and am currently seeking publication of my first book, which explores existentialist motifs in his writing. I offer tuition in English, essay writing, and all branches of philosophy. Although I conduct the majority of lessons over the internet, I do travel to tutees in the Horsham and Dorking areas. Please feel free to contact me, if you would like to discuss the options.

Tutoring Experience:

Although still relatively new to First Tutors, I have many years' experience as an educator, having taught in an outstanding secondary school since 2003. During that time, I have helped thousands of students, spanning the full range of abilities, and have consistently achieved exceptional 'value-added' results for my classes. In addition to working with larger groups, I have also offered regular one-to-one tuition sessions, and I take pride in never having had a pupil achieve lower than a C for either English Language or English Literature. Indeed, the vast majority of my students achieve As and A*s, irrespective of their level of attainment when they first arrive under my supervision. My teaching has been repeatedly graded as ‘outstanding’, and the bespoke resources I produce in order to support students are of a professional quality. In addition to offering school and college level tuition, I tutor English and philosophy through to postgraduate level, drawing upon my wide teaching experience and continuing academic research, to support students working at the very highest levels.

Tutoring Approach:

As a doctoral tutor, I offer a premium service, drawing upon my own extensive academic skills and experience to give help that is tailored to the student's specific needs. I make a point of adapting not only the content, but also my teaching method to fit the learning style and personality of the individual, avoiding a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. The tutorials I offer are friendly and supportive, with a real emphasis placed upon aspiration: I want my students to aim for - and achieve - the highest possible grades. I have many years’ experience setting and marking English coursework, particularly for AQA, and draw upon this to quickly identify areas for improvement in a student’s work. My tutorials are designed to not only convey information clearly and in an easily-digestible form, but to provide structured opportunities for the learner to incrementally improve their skills. In addition to the lesson, I provide free email support to tutees and parents, drawing upon my experience as a teacher to answer any queries relating to schoolwork or examinations. I offer a 50 percent discount on the first lesson, and reduced rates for groups of two or more students. Please message me to book a slot, or for a friendly discussion of your requirements.
