About me



When GCSE pupils get in touch with me asking for systematic revision preparation or a quick procrastination session, I always prioritise 1 key technique. I call it the 'extension method' which works repeatedly from what my previous tutees tell me. Not only did they all manage to attain the grades they wanted, but they saw significant progress in their quality of written and spoken language in the long term.

When GCSE pupils get in touch with me asking for systematic revision preparation or a quick procrastination session, I always prioritise 1 key technique. I call it the 'extension method' which works repeatedly from what my previous tutees tell me. Not only did they all manage to attain the grades they wanted, but they saw significant progress in their quality of written and spoken language in the long term.


Because it is true that if you are aiming for top marks in GCSE English Language, English Literature, History, Classical Greek, Latin, or French, you need good writing skills. These allow you to keep the question in focus and make your response convincing - so much so that the examiner just *has* to give you those marks! The goal is to help you cultivate the autonomy and the correct attitude needed to decode and use knowledge. To access the rest of my methods and study resources follow me at https://notesgen.app.link/D9GbuDJNtU.

  

As for me, I am final year Classics student at the University of Edinburgh, passionate about the Arts and Humanities. I have the joy to be taught one of the most enriching disciplines at one of the greatest places. And having had inspiring tutors myself, I have the even greater joy to share the knowledge I have gained with others.
