Personal Description:

I hаve bаchelоr`s аnd mаster`s degrees in English frоm Queen Mаry, University оf Lоndоn. I speciаlised in mоdern literаture during my mаster`s аnd my dissertаtiоn wаs оn Jаmes Jоyce.

I tutor at GCSE, AS, A and university levels, and am available on weekday evenings/weekends.

I am always amenable in accommodating new students to ensure that both parties are satisfied with the arrangement.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring since January 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is important to engage a student's passion for the texts being studied. Once a student is engaged, they will be motivated to discover more for themselves which is vital because a tutor is often only seeing a student for an hour each week. My role as a tutor is to help facilitate that initial engagement, as well as simultaneously helping the student to improve the quality of their work.

I would tell any parent or guardian that the best way to improve a student's English is very simple - get them to read more! It is also important for students to improve the way they plan and structure their written work. These are basic tenets, but are certainly the most effective.

I have a comprehensive knowledge of English literature and can provide a student with a strong understanding of the content and context of any text.
