About me

Hi, I’m Jess, a recent English Literature and Education Studies graduate from Durham University. I’m about to start my second degree, a Masters in Theatre Directing at East 15 drama school, where I’m excited to apply my love of literature, especially drama, to a real stage! I have always loved studying English and I believe that a study of literature should be enjoyable, just as reading a good book (or poem, or play….) should be.

Hi, I’m Jess, a recent English Literature and Education Studies graduate from Durham University. I’m about to start my second degree, a Masters in Theatre Directing at East 15 drama school, where I’m excited to apply my love of literature, especially drama, to a real stage! I have always loved studying English and I believe that a study of literature should be enjoyable, just as reading a good book (or poem, or play….) should be. I have been teaching in one form or another for many years, as a swimming coach for young children during my time in Sixth Form, or as an A Level tutor for English students in my first year of university. I have now been tutoring with MyTutor for 3 years and have taught everything from Key Stage 3 to A Level, with many students sitting public examinations. Through studying Education I have learnt that teaching is so much more than throwing information at somebody to regurgitate in an exam!

About my sessions

You will guide our sessions and advise me on what I should cover and which areas you would like particular help in. We’ll break things down into manageable chunks before starting on essay-style answers, which should hopefully make the prospect of an exam less daunting. I hope the sessions will be fun, and I will always ensure that by the end of the session you are confident enough to explain the topic or concept back to me. I will make sure that our sessions include both academic content and...

You will guide our sessions and advise me on what I should cover and which areas you would like particular help in. We’ll break things down into manageable chunks before starting on essay-style answers, which should hopefully make the prospect of an exam less daunting. I hope the sessions will be fun, and I will always ensure that by the end of the session you are confident enough to explain the topic or concept back to me. I will make sure that our sessions include both academic content and exam technique to make sure that you feel confident going into the exam. I studied OCR English Literature A Level and AQA English Language and History A Level, but have tutored a variety of exam boards. I am able to tutor a wide variety of literature, from Chaucer to the present day, and a similar range of historical periods at GCSE, though my specialisms include drama of all periods, especially Shakespeare and Renaissance period drama, Romantic and Modern Period poetry and the work of WB Yeats. I am fairly flexible with my hours, and am normally able to fit around your timetable. I am also happy to provide short-notice sessions whenever possible and to take revision sessions during exam period. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send me a message and book a free Meet the Tutor session, where we can talk more about how you would like to organise our sessions. I look forward to meeting you!
