About me

Hi I'm Becca, I'm 22 years old and am currently studying for a Master's in Education and Literature at Cambridge University.


During my undergraduate degree at Durham I studied Sociology and English Literature. I enjoyed studying these subjects as they're both about communication and connection with people and the world. I'm particularly passionate about creative writing and Young Adult Fiction and I love to see people express themselves through language....

During my undergraduate degree at Durham I studied Sociology and English Literature. I enjoyed studying these subjects as they're both about communication and connection with people and the world. I'm particularly passionate about creative writing and Young Adult Fiction and I love to see people express themselves through language.


With A*'s in A-Level English and Sociology, and degree modules studied in both fields, I am well qualified to help students in their understanding and writing techniques as they prepare for exams or just need some extra guidance to consolidate their classroom learning in both English studies and Sociology. My lessons will help students get the grades whilst also making the process enjoyable!

About my sessions

I aim to equip students with a deep understanding of English Literature and Language (or Sociology), building on the skills they have learnt in the classroom, giving them the resilience to keep going when they don't succeed at first, and the confidence to answer difficult questions with top grade answers. I'm enthusiastic and ambitious as a learner which will be reflected in my teaching to help students achieve the best they can.

I aim to equip students with a deep understanding of English Literature and Language (or Sociology), building on the skills they have learnt in the classroom, giving them the resilience to keep going when they don't succeed at first, and the confidence to answer difficult questions with top grade answers. I'm enthusiastic and ambitious as a learner which will be reflected in my teaching to help students achieve the best they can.


During my sessions we'll work together to target areas that students are least confident in: whether that's a Literature text, essay writing technique, or something else they might find challenging. As I've been through GCSE, A-Level and University exams I have lots of great tips and techniques which we can try to see what works best for individual students. It is important to me that students increase in understanding and confidence, learning transferable skills and seeing progression through an increase in grades. I will also be happy to set work for students to complete between lessons and go through their answers during the tutorial.


I believe in always having a positive and encouraging attitude towards teaching which I hope will help to make the experience enjoyable for students.

My daughter got a B in her A level because of her brilliant tutor Rebecca! The school were terrible in this subject so between Rebecca and my daughter's sheer hard work they did it! Rebecca is a very dedicated young woman and a gift of a tutor to any child.
