About me

Hi, my name is Jess. I am a calm, passionate and committed second year undergraduate reading English Language and Literature at Lincoln College, Oxford. What most excites me about English is the fun of inferring different effects in a written passage. I can often be found with a book in one hand. I'm also into volunteering and making art.

In school, I gained 100% in AS English Literature and 95% in GCSE English Literature. I tutored a GCSE History student as a sixth former and I was a peer mentor in year 12, working alongside a year 7 form and supporting them in their personal development.


I have experience of being tutored for A2 Level Maths. This has made me appreciate how a good tutor who not so much instructs you as prompts you to engage with a subject, can make learning an enjoyable experience and can spark a real interest in that subject for you.

I can help students improve by working together to increase their sensitivity to texts and passages, and to better the fullness and sophistication of their responses.


My sessions are adapted to each student's individual requirements.

I can help students improve by working together to increase their sensitivity to texts and passages, and to better the fullness and sophistication of their responses.


My sessions are adapted to each student's individual requirements. In our free introductory session we would establish what a student is working on, which exam board they are with, and what specifically are their strengths and weaknesses. For students working towards exams, my sessions will be specification-orientated with plenty of essay and commentary practice. I am a big proponent of using brainstorming as a method of both generating and memorising ideas. I also believe in setting small and manageable targets.


I know how stressful and overwhelming being a student can be and I am here to help.
