About me

Hi! I'm Sophie and I read English Literature with a French module at Durham University. I did English Literature, French and Politics at A level. I also did History AS and an EPQ on the extent to which Christopher Marlowe influenced Shakespeare's works, looking at Edward II, Richard II, Romeo and Juliet, and Hero and Leander. I have been tutoring English and French for two years now but have recently joined MyTutor to accelerate this while I am at university. At Durham, I enjoy readin...

Hi! I'm Sophie and I read English Literature with a French module at Durham University. I did English Literature, French and Politics at A level. I also did History AS and an EPQ on the extent to which Christopher Marlowe influenced Shakespeare's works, looking at Edward II, Richard II, Romeo and Juliet, and Hero and Leander. I have been tutoring English and French for two years now but have recently joined MyTutor to accelerate this while I am at university. At Durham, I enjoy reading a myriad of literature concerning Drama, Poetry, the novel, Classical and Biblical works and English: language, use and theory.


While I may not enjoy the liberty of being of dual nationality, my French has been fully perfected through hard work and education. In this way, I will be able to teach French with the knowledge of what it takes to learn a Modern Foreign Language for an English native speaker.


I also offer a Personal Statement review suitable for Oxbridge applicants and general University applicants.

About my sessions

I will structure lessons based upon what a student needs help with, so we can work together to achieve your full academic potential. I understand the demands of academia and from experience tutoring know it may be challenging for a student to grasp a concept, but with maximum effort this can be easily fulfilled. English as a subject is best mastered through helpful guidance as essays can be very subjective. Unlike the Sciences or Maths, for example, there is no textbook. I will work with you...

I will structure lessons based upon what a student needs help with, so we can work together to achieve your full academic potential. I understand the demands of academia and from experience tutoring know it may be challenging for a student to grasp a concept, but with maximum effort this can be easily fulfilled. English as a subject is best mastered through helpful guidance as essays can be very subjective. Unlike the Sciences or Maths, for example, there is no textbook. I will work with you to broaden your reading and historical understanding of literature, as well as the routine language, form and structure tools that are needed to analyse a text. Throughout my lessons I hope not only for you to see noticeable rise in your grades, but to start to enjoy and develop your appreciation for literature as it is meant to be received. 


French GCSE and A level largely revolve around grammar, pronunciation and cultural understandings which make up the 'Listening, Reading and Writing,' speaking exam and essay writing exam. From my tutoring and mastering of the language, I have a plethora of useful resources to make this as enjoyable and facilitating as possible. Having achieved the top grades in each exam I am confident that I can pass on my tips and guidance. J'espère vous aider bientôt !
