About me

Since a very young age I have been passionate about English. It's something that I have pursued through high school and A levels, and most recently to university. My passion for the subject runs so deep that I am hoping to pursue a career within teaching after I graduate.


It is my hope that with your trust, I will be given the opportunity to use my talent and commitment to the subject to help other students younger than myself reach their full potential.

About my sessions

Initially, I will hold an introductory session with the student (and the parent if desired) in order to gain an insight into the current level of working, the texts being studied and any key areas of weakness or uncertainty for improvement. This will also provide opportunity for us to set both long term and short term goals to maximise the success of our sessions.


Once that baseline has been established and agreed upon, I will set forth with the student to build a week by week plan for the sessions. By gaining knowledge of the current course of study, I will be able to plan sessions around both the texts and the exam board associated with the course and thus act as a supplementary enhancement to the in-school study.


Through my own experiences in school, I find that the most effective way to engage with the subject, and therefore gain a higher grade, is to have verbal discussions and debates about potential approaches to the texts and how that can be used within an essay. This then helps to build both basic and more advanced analytical skills crucial for improvement in the subject.

Questions Amber has answered

With reference to his dramatic methods, explain how Shakespeare presents the relationship between King Lear and Cordelia in 'King Lear'.

Within 'King Lear', Shakespeare presents the bond between Lear and his daughter Cordelia both as one born out of familial duty, yet retaining elements of a deeper more emotional bond between father and daughter as the play progresses. At the very beginning of the play, it is the more duty bound superficial relationship that is more clearly visible with the stress of the tie falling of "who can say they doth love us most" (1:1), and Lear's rash dismissal of Cordelia. As can often expected of drama of Shakespeare's time, the love Cordelia has for Lear "according to my bond" (1:1) is one reflective of many contemporary, paternal relationships - albeit shocking to the modern reader. Similarly, it is also possible that the same "bond" experienced by Cordelia to her Father is the limiting factor to emotion that transforms Lear into "the dragon" (1:1), with Shakespeare using animal metaphor to demonstrate the danger of Lear's wrath that led to the temporary dissolution of their relationship.Within 'King Lear', Shakespeare presents the bond between Lear and his daughter Cordelia both as one born out of familial duty, yet retaining elements of a deeper more emotional bond between father and daughter as the play progresses.
