About me

Availabilty: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday - 6PM-8PM.  Saturday, Sunday - 4PM-7PM


Having been tutored myself in various different subjects over the years, I understand how helpful a knowledgeable and friendly tutor can be. I have in the past tutored friends and family friends on an informal basis, so I have a good grasp of what is necessary to tutor, especially in English. I have always been the type of person that everyone comes to for help! 

 In English at A-level I was with AQA, so I have specific knowledge of this board's course. However, I feel that the core of English doesn't change an extreme amount between different boards, and so I'm willing to tutor any board within the subject, as long as I am given sufficient notice to attain knowledge of my tutee's texts. 

At GCSE I was with WJEC for English, and OCR for History. Once again, I am willing to work with different boards, but clearly I will have greater knowledge about these specific courses - their syllabuses, coursework and assessments.

In terms of the personal statement, I have been through the lengthy process of writing one, and revising it based on advice, so I have experience in the area. My application was successful, indicating that I have a good idea of how to write a personal statement! 

I aim to keep my sessions engaging and interesting in keeping with the genuine passion I have for the subjects I'm teaching. First and foremost I will address any issues or problems the student wants to focus on - maybe a specific weakness in their exam technique, for example. Then, following from that I will teach all the important skills necessary to write good essays and do well in exams, and I can also deliver important specific information about texts or historical periods. I am a good listener, and attentive; I know how to clarify and simplify complex ideas, and teach lessons in a memorable way.
