Personal Description:

I graduated from Durham University with a first-class English Literature degree, and completed an MA in theatre writing at the Central School of Speech and Drama. I have been tutoring for five years, and experience includes tutoring for both sexes, from primary school students right through to university undergraduates. I have also taught Drama in a local secondary school.

Tutoring Experience:

I began tutoring in 2008. I have tutored students of every year group, from year 7 - Sixth Form. Previous successes include an 11+ candidate achieving entry at every school they applied for, GCSE students gaining A*s, an AS retake student improving from a D grade to an A grade, and an A2 student achieving a scholarship (and unconditional offer) to their first-choice university.

As well as offering specific tuition to pupils undertaking English Language and English Literature courses, I tutor pupils preparing for 11+ entrance examinations, and offer essay-writing tuition to pupils studying humanities (such as Drama and Classical Civilisations A2 courses).

Given the depth of my BA degree, I can offer extensive revision of the theory behind the texts being studied. Areas of previous focus include: the Brontes, Shakespeare, the Renaissance (eg. Marlowe, Raleigh), Romanticism (eg. Keats, Blake), Jane Austen, Modernism (eg. Woolf, Joyce), Metaphysicals (eg. Marvell, Milton), American Literature (eg. Hemingway, Hawthorne), approaches in Literary Criticism (eg. Feminism, Postmodernism), American Poetry (eg. Dickinson, Whitman), War Poetry (eg. Sassoon, Owen), the Short Story (eg. Poe, Carver), Contemporary Fiction (eg. Haddon,Hosseini), Contemporary Poetry (eg. Duffy, Armitage), and Drama (a full range, from Sophocles to Pinter and beyond).

Tutoring Approach:

I offer focused and relaxed one-to-one tuition, tailored to suit the specific requirements of a pupil's exam syllabus.

Many tutees initially ask for tuition as an additional support to their in-school teaching. Crucially, I can also offer an in-depth revision of the theory of specific texts being studied, as well as offering continued feedback on essays.
