About me

Hi! My name is Isobel and I have just graduated with a 2:1 in English Literature from the University of Bristol.

English was always my favourite subject at school and one that was by far the most enjoyable- I found the span and depth of study, particularly at A Level, fascinating. I have studied Chaucer to F. Scott Fitzgerald and have come to appreciate everything in between!

Hi! My name is Isobel and I have just graduated with a 2:1 in English Literature from the University of Bristol.

English was always my favourite subject at school and one that was by far the most enjoyable- I found the span and depth of study, particularly at A Level, fascinating. I have studied Chaucer to F. Scott Fitzgerald and have come to appreciate everything in between!

I am also available to provide tuition for AQA Philosophy A Level. Having completed this qualification and achieving a high grade, I am very familiar with the content and structure for the exam. 

I understand that meeting the individual needs of the tutee is absolutely essential and I will ensure that tutorials are tailored to what you need support in. 

I have a relaxed and friendly manner and hope that you come to enjoy English in a new way. I hope that you find the tutorials interesting and engaging as ultimately that is what is needed to succeed! 

My availability is located on my profile. If you have any questions about availability or tutoring in general, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you soon!

Best wishes,

Isobel.

About my sessions

Structure & Preparation: I will prepare by going through any prior notes I have on the student and by looking at their exam specification and familarising myself with the mark scheme, as well as getting to know the style of the exam paper itself. The structure of the tutorial will firstly revolve around finding out what the student struggles with as well as what they are confident in. I will ask the student how the session would best be spent, whether this be going through past papers or...

Structure & Preparation: I will prepare by going through any prior notes I have on the student and by looking at their exam specification and familarising myself with the mark scheme, as well as getting to know the style of the exam paper itself. The structure of the tutorial will firstly revolve around finding out what the student struggles with as well as what they are confident in. I will ask the student how the session would best be spent, whether this be going through past papers or tackling specific content that they struggle with. 

Achieveing goals: This is essential to the students' success, which is why I will ask what their strengths and weaknesses are at the start of the session. I will patiently listen to the students questions and ideas about how they can improve and advise them about how we can go about this- achieving goals is a gradual process and it is important to send them down the right path. 

Progress: This will be measured in accordance with the goals they have set themselves at the start of the sessions and how they do week by week in the tutorials.

Encouragement: It is very important to encourage pupils about their learning, particularly when they are struggling. With hard work anything is possible!
