WHAT DO OUR TUTORS SAY?

What happens in a typical GCSE English tutorial?

I always look up the board my students are taking so the lessons are really relevant. Then we go through past papers or set texts, whatever the student finds helpful.

What do most of your English students ask for help with?

I find a lot of them are interested in essay structure, so I tend to help them with that. They also ask about spelling and grammar a lot.

How would you start an English GCSE tutorial?

I normally give my students a starter activity, like a picture or an extract. We discuss the mood and what it implies.

Do you have any tips for English students?

I always find that making a glossary of literary terms is really helpful for my English students, because they can use it no matter what text they're presented with.

How would you describe your relationship with your students?

We get on really well - I feel I really know them, and they often arrange lessons with me spontaneously.

Do you have a favourite success story?

There was one girl who was home-schooled and hadn't done English for a couple of years. We worked together and in the end she got an A, so we were really pleased.
