About my sessions

I'll tailor my tuition to the individual, depending on the curriculum and the aims of the student themselves. Working through passages one on one, we'll concentrate on areas you find difficult, aiming to foster both understanding of and enthusiasm for the text at hand. For students working towards GSCE, A levels and university degrees, I will prepare essay questions and regularly marks essays. Together, we will build a good foundation of essay writing style, standing you in good stead...

I'll tailor my tuition to the individual, depending on the curriculum and the aims of the student themselves. Working through passages one on one, we'll concentrate on areas you find difficult, aiming to foster both understanding of and enthusiasm for the text at hand. For students working towards GSCE, A levels and university degrees, I will prepare essay questions and regularly marks essays. Together, we will build a good foundation of essay writing style, standing you in good stead for both exam answers and coursework essays. I will measure progress not just by regularly marking essays, but by explaining the reasoning behind the mark and the subsequent areas we can target for improvement. By going through the mark scheme together, we will develop a concrete plan for exam technique to achieve the best mark possible. For A-Level English students and those preparing for the ELAT, I'll dedicate specific sessions to unseen materials which we will consider together, developing the close reading skills required. I'm also happy to help with Oxbridge preparation. Having mentored students though their application to Cambridge while an undergraduate, I can confidently guide you through the initial stages of further reading and the later stages of personal statements, aptitude tests and interviews.
