Thank you, Florianne, for your excellent tutoring for English Language IGCSE. My daughter has very much enjoyed her lessons with you, and has gone from English being her least favourite subject, to a confident writer. She received her exam result today and got an amazing A* - wow.

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.
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.
I normally give my students a starter activity, like a picture or an extract. We discuss the mood and what it implies.
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.
We get on really well - I feel I really know them, and they often arrange lessons with me spontaneously.
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.
