I am 22 years old and recently graduated from the University of Glasgow with a 2.1 degree in English Literature. Prior to that I completed my A levels at the Godolphin and Latymer School in English, History, Classics and Philosophy and achieved an A grade in each. I am a very experienced and enthusiastic tutor and really enjoy sharing my passion for English and History with my tutees.
I have extensive experience in teaching both English and History as I have tutored for the past four years both in London and Glasgow and I always try to ensure that my lessons are enjoyable as well as challenging. As a result I have a good understanding of the requirements of different examination boards and the requirements for A level and university entrance. Throughout this time I have been very successful in ensuring my tutees achieve the results that they need, including helping one student improve from a C to an A grade in A level English.
My main aim is to inspire confidence in my students and create a relaxed environment in which they are not afraid to ask questions. I normally start by identifying the principal areas of difficulty for the pupil and then base our lessons around these. I have also found that using contemporary materials such as clips from films and stage adaptations is very effective, particularly when dealing with subjects such as Shakespeare. I always attempt to be as flexible as possible in my time and available for extra sessions especially in the lead up to examinations.
