I am a hardworking and dedicated individual, currently studying BA Hons English Literature at the University of Manchester. I have always been passionate about English and began to realise my strong talent in this area early on in my GCSE studies. My interest in English was only further developed while studying combined English Language and Literature at A Level. Soon becoming increasingly devoted to pushing the analysis of great texts one step further than expected during my time at my Sixth Form College. I have also always shown a great interest in languages. In particular the study of French. I achieved an exceptional grade at A level French and during July 2019 I lived independently in the city of Lyon and studied French Language and Culture at the Lyon Catholic University.

My experiences of exams were often a little overwhelming. However, if you devote lots of time to your studies and keep practising exam techniques, the stressful moments will be completely worthwhile when it comes to results day. In terms of applying to University, be sure to attend plenty of open days and when you have decided on a course, start to create a strong personal statement that shows your talents and interests relate well to the course.

About my sessions

My tutoring style will be tailored to the personality and learning preferences of each student. Each week, I will devote time to preparing exercises, games and practise questions, which the student and I can work through together. I will clearly set out objectives at the start of the lesson that we can recognise if we have completed or need to continue working on in the next session. I will start lessons with a relaxed memory game, which encourages students to learn through repetition. I will...

My tutoring style will be tailored to the personality and learning preferences of each student. Each week, I will devote time to preparing exercises, games and practise questions, which the student and I can work through together. I will clearly set out objectives at the start of the lesson that we can recognise if we have completed or need to continue working on in the next session. I will start lessons with a relaxed memory game, which encourages students to learn through repetition. I will also encourage students to begin to think independently, particularly in terms of analysis in English. I am a big believer that all students can achieve the top grades, therefore I will be advising on how to go above and beyond in English and French exams. Of course, I will always save some time at the end of the lesson for general advice on the student’s next stage in education, whether it be Sixth Form or University.
