About me

Hello! I'm Isabel, and I'd love to tutor you in English. I'm a student at Trinity College Dublin, where I study English Literature and Film. I've always loved reading and writing, and English was my best subject in secondary school, so it seemed like the obvious choice for my university course. I'm so glad with my choice!

Hello! I'm Isabel, and I'd love to tutor you in English. I'm a student at Trinity College Dublin, where I study English Literature and Film. I've always loved reading and writing, and English was my best subject in secondary school, so it seemed like the obvious choice for my university course. I'm so glad with my choice! I wholeheartedly believe that the skills you acquire studying English can be applied to so many real-life situations and jobs. Being a good writer and having sharp analytical skills is so important. I’d love to get you enthused about the subject as well.

I will help you improve your English skills and ace those GCSEs by sharing some simple tips and tricks I've learned through my exam-taking experiences, as well as giving constructive feedback and specific guidance. Having taken several English exams throughout my academic career, I am very familiar with these kinds of assessments and will tell you exactly how the exam is testing your knowledge. This is just one of the ways that I will prepare you for what lies ahead of you in your English studies. I hope to provide the support and guidance that will improve your grades and lessen the stress of your GCSEs!

About my sessions

If you select me as your tutor, I will structure my sessions accordingly. The first session will be introductory and I will get a feel of what part of the subject you are struggling with. It’s okay if you’re struggling with everything! That’s what I’m here for. After determining what we need to work on, I will also ask you what lesson structure you feel the most comfortable with. I suggest going through past English GCSE papers and seeing how you would approach each question. This way, I can...

If you select me as your tutor, I will structure my sessions accordingly. The first session will be introductory and I will get a feel of what part of the subject you are struggling with. It’s okay if you’re struggling with everything! That’s what I’m here for. After determining what we need to work on, I will also ask you what lesson structure you feel the most comfortable with. I suggest going through past English GCSE papers and seeing how you would approach each question. This way, I can give you feedback on exactly how you can improve each answer. If there is one particular style of question that you need extra help on, I will provide additional similar questions so that we can perfect your answer together. My approach, although casual, includes practicing with real questions, as I believe this will prepare you the best for the actual exam.

I will end each session by reflecting on what you have learned, and check in with you about your worries or anxieties regarding the exam. Knowing your concerns will help me to plan our next session, so that you truly feel like you’re making progress each time we meet.
