As a current English student, I have recently experienced the stresses of GCSE exams, A Level exams, and applying to Cambridge. I can use my recent experiences to help you reach your academic potential in English.
Having taught karate classes and tutored at GCSE level before, I know how rewarding teaching others can be. Whether you're struggling with Shakespeare, writing essays or are just looking for guidance on your Oxbridge application, I can help.

How will you improve?
Specific - Through an initial Meet-the-Tutor session, we can identify the areas you want to improve in, and then I can tailor my teaching to your specific texts and exam level or specification. I will maintain regular email contact as well to get the most out of the sessions.
Preparation - I will prepare in advance of each session activities and material that will help with your ongoing learning as well as directly aiding revision, such as with a close focus on important quotations. Your writing will improve as we integrate a holistic approach to a text with this closer analysis.
Discussion - English is all about activity and discussion, not just being talked to by a teacher. By encouraging you to talk and write about the content you cover in greater depth and with a clearer focus, you will improve in your ability to communicate and you will remember far more for the exam - this is something you won't always get in a large class at school.
I can't wait to hear from you and start helping you with your progress!

At any level, the conclusion to an English essay should not be merely a bland summary of the content already explored. It may be a good idea to summarise the main points that have led to the final discussion-point, but the concluding paragraphs to an essay should be seen as primarily the culmination: the most interesting and important idea that all prior content has built towards.
In this respect:
- Mention the main points of the essay as it has led so far...
- Then integrate this with this final discussion-point, exploring this with textual evidence as in the "body" of the essay
- The conclusion should not raise a number of unexplored points, but you can stand out if this final point develops a new question, idea or intertextual link (such as a quote from another book). Leave the reader or marker with the sense that your line of argument has fulfilled and goes beyond the basic needs of the question or mark scheme: it has the potential to go even further, perhaps by reading the question in a new light.see more
