About my sessions

The lesson structure consists of:

>> 15' of a powerpoint presentation on the topic in focus. I have separate presentations on each topic and question of the exam paper.

>> Exercises we practise together! I give you 10' to write a response, then followed by feedback.

>> A summary of what we've covered at the end of the class.

For my pupils, I also offer the following:

-> Free resources: After each class I send you the powerpoint presentations for you to keep as a reference.

-> No extra charge for marking homework: This is free. I do not ask pupils to book a Written Work Review.

-> Progression checklist: To help you organise your studies and to show you how far we progress.

-> Vocabulary quizzes: To get you to improve on your use of academic phraseology.

-> Real life literary criticism: (For literature pupils) We go through examples of real life criticism written to boost your analytical skills faster.


Yet, all the above are most effective when personalised to the needs of each pupil. Hence, I encourage you to let me know of your strengths and weaknesses, what you find most interesting and most challenging, and how I could best help through booking a free meeting with me first.


I look forward to meeting you, and wish you the best for this academic year!:)

Maria has been an excellent teacher and I am very thankful to her for supporting my son in English GCSE re-sit. He managed to improve his grade from C to A*. My son found her very helpful and she taught him good exam techniques .
