About me

Hi, my name is Tim and I am currently studying English Literature at Bristol University. Since I was young I have been enthusiastic about literature and the English language. I believe literature to be one of the cornerstones of human interaction, our ability to use language to convey ideas, emotion and lessons to be extraordinary. I have carried this enthusiasm into school attaining an A* at GCSE and an A at A-Level which included an exam I passed by attaining 100%. I am confident I know exactly how to help students achieve their full potential in English GCSE because I have helped several students already with coursework and exam technique, I believe a mix of passion and technique is key to achieveing excellent marks at GCSE and that with purposeful and efficent training the trickiest of unseen poems to the most complex coursework question can be tackled. My range of knowledge about GCSE English will make any student improve, and hopefully I can provide a bit of enjoyment along the way!

Agnes (Parent) May 12 2017

Very useful and helpful. Went through poems together and built up a better understanding and came up with ideas which I know will help in the exam :)

Naciye (Parent) May 6 2017

Another lesson that was focused on similar texts to improve understanding of the time period's language. There was an increase in the level of challenging analysising with the key points of the text. Overall, the lesson was rewarding in linking texts with the intent of increasing a higher level of verbal and written responses.

Reshma (Parent) May 4 2017

This was exactly what we were looking for, especially as Tim substantiated his explanations with examples which made his points much clearer to understand. Look forward to the next session!

Naciye (Parent) April 29 2017

Was a change from the usual Great Expectations analysis but useful in expanding understanding of techniques. Question on devices was a direct method in merging understanding of content and analytical written style. Overall, a big step forward for my son.

-Read through three times.

-Identify the form of the text. Is it prose? Is it a poem? Is it an advert? Is it even a picture?

-From this point attack the text depending on what form it is in.

-If poem identify form (sonnet, free verse etc). Then identify poetic techniques from meter, to language.

-If prose identify key features such as narrative voice, language and metaphor.

-Use these literary techniques you have found to form meaning from the text. Once a meaning has been found use this as the basis of your essays argument and use the techniques as evidence.
