About me

Hi! I'm El, and I'm a third year English student at Durham. I'm really passionate about English, and I love tutoring, and being able to see the progress students make is so rewarding! I always did quite well in English, but I really struggled with a lot of my other subjects, and I know how stressful it can be sitting exams when you don't feel confident.

Hi! I'm El, and I'm a third year English student at Durham. I'm really passionate about English, and I love tutoring, and being able to see the progress students make is so rewarding! I always did quite well in English, but I really struggled with a lot of my other subjects, and I know how stressful it can be sitting exams when you don't feel confident. Having been tutored a lot myself in the past, and tutored extensively throughout uni, I know how much a productive, engaging and cooperative session can be in helping both your grades and your confidence! Having that boost really helped me in my A Levels, and still positively affects how I revise and study at uni today.


I've always loved English, but during my A Levels I found how much I enjoyed going beyond the text. I could learn about history, philosophy and politics all through one subject, and that's really stuck with me as I've carried on into my degree. I know that not everyone loves English as much as me, so I think being able to search for the topics you might enjoy within English can be a good place to start in tutoring!

About my sessions

The best way to learn is always a cooperative approach, so I'll always promise to be familiar with your texts, exams and your personal goals. I try and set a few flexible goals for each session about what we hope to achieve and revisit these at the end to track what we have achieved. My sessions focus on guided discussion which enable the student to develop their own ideas on the texts. These opinions help build original and thoughtful essays and develop a student’s confidence in their ow...

The best way to learn is always a cooperative approach, so I'll always promise to be familiar with your texts, exams and your personal goals. I try and set a few flexible goals for each session about what we hope to achieve and revisit these at the end to track what we have achieved. My sessions focus on guided discussion which enable the student to develop their own ideas on the texts. These opinions help build original and thoughtful essays and develop a student’s confidence in their own knowledge and understanding.


I link every session to past exam papers, or sample questions, allowing exam or coursework situations to guide the content of the lesson and provide a focus. To measure progress, I will often ask students to do some loose progress work prior to the next session to write down these ideas into sample paragraphs. I use these to measure the progress of a student, and equally evaluate what still requires improvement.


Confidence is a key area in any subject, as is enjoying a text. No matter how much you might hate Hamlet, or feel nervous for upcoming exams, I hope I can always make my students feel confident, comfortable, and prepared for wherever their studies take them.
