About me

I am studying English at Exeter University. Having loved reading since a young age and enjoyed English lessons at school, the subject choice was inevitable.

One of my favourite aspects of my course is poetry. With many students faced with the daunting task of analysing an unseen poem in GCSE English, I would be able to offer insightful advice that would not only make the task a less stressful experience, but also an excellent way of gaining marks.

Though my main focus for tutoring is English, I am happy to to help with EPQs and Personal Statements.

The content covered in each session is entirely up to you. I will use a variety of resources like note cards and example essays to ensure that you are able to confidently grasp a concept. Practicing past exam questions are an important part of exam preparation, but we will break them down and create plans before moving on to writing full answers. In addition, we will focus on the mark scheme and examaminer notes in order to make sure your exam answer impresses the examiner.

Having tutored friends, I feel that I am well equipped to help other students. My teaching style is friendly and patient and backed up by knowledge from my past experiences of the syllabuses. I have also done work experience in a junior school and am DBS approved.

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' (both accessible through this website). Please tell me what exam you are taking, the exam board and what you are struggling with.

Hope to hear from you soon!

My English has dramatically improved since I began having tutoring off Juliet. I would 100% recommend her as a tutor if you have English exams coming up.

Though it certainly can seem daunting at first, unseen poetry can be a great way of earning marks during your exam. Reading the poem twice is an excellent way to start, but do not worry if you do not understand the poem. Then annotate the poem. Look for features such as assonance and alliteration and play attention to the lexis used. Imagery is often a key part of a poem, so look out for features such as personification and similes. Structure should definitely not be overlooked in your exam answer; consider the size of the stanza and the number of stanzas. Identify whether or not there is a rhyme scheme. If there is not a rhyme scheme, think about why there is not a rhyme scheme. If there is a rhyme scheme then focus on how regular it is. If the rhyme scheme breaks down, focus on the tone and imagery of the poem in that particular line as this may explain why the rhyme scheme has broken down. After you have finished annotating the poem, select a variety of features to write about, making sure you include evidence and explain the effects of the features.
