About me

I come from a homeschooled background, and hence have had a lot of experience with tutors. This means I know exactly how important it is to have a tutor who is genuinely interested in their subject, and is prepared to engage in material outside the curriculum to add extra perspective, ensuring students earn the higher marks.

I come from a homeschooled background, and hence have had a lot of experience with tutors. This means I know exactly how important it is to have a tutor who is genuinely interested in their subject, and is prepared to engage in material outside the curriculum to add extra perspective, ensuring students earn the higher marks.


English became one of my favourite subject when I began studying for my A-Levels, and it was because I fell in love with the curriculum. I discovered some of my favourite poets, literary movements, and books during those two years. Although I am now studying Philosophy at UCL, English A-Level will always have a special place in my heart. In fact, it’s the main reason why I am so excited to start tutoring, as it will give me the opportunity to transfer some of my passion onto the student.

About my sessions

My plan for lessons is mainly to focus on exam technique: I cannot stress the importance of it enough. Therefore, I will expect students to have a good grasp of the content before the lesson, and I will be there to help them mould their knowledge into exam answers.

My plan for lessons is mainly to focus on exam technique: I cannot stress the importance of it enough. Therefore, I will expect students to have a good grasp of the content before the lesson, and I will be there to help them mould their knowledge into exam answers. 


In the first lessons, I will layout the basic assessment objectives and how the student can reach them. The following lessons will be focused on developing a students ability to critically interpret the text and the question, as well as learning to structure an essay.


There will be a lot of discussion- we’ll talk about the text in relation to critic quotes and literary theories, as well as textual analysis. Each week/lesson (depending on frequency) I will set students an essay title, and it will be their choice -and responsibility to complete it. Some weeks I may just ask them to write introductions, conclusions, or detailed essay plans to build up their confidence, but in the later weeks, I will expect them to write a couple of essays for me to check their progress.


I will also make sure to always send them supplementary material after the lesson.


However, I’m very flexible. The method I have described is what really helped me personally secure a high A, and I realise everyone has different ways of learning. If the students have specific questions/requirements from me, I am more than happy and capable to accommodate.
