About me

** Since the closure of schools, I can offer English tuition for KS3 and KS2. Although exams have been cancelled, I am more than happy to do introductory lessons for English Language A-level or University level.


I was told by teacher once that studying English Language is a bit like detective work. Although it may seem like it, writing techniques aren't often staring you in the face. You've got to dig around a bit to find out the good stuff; it is quite incredible h...

I was told by teacher once that studying English Language is a bit like detective work. Although it may seem like it, writing techniques aren't often staring you in the face. You've got to dig around a bit to find out the good stuff; it is quite incredible how much you can learn from somebody's choice of language. This is what I enjoy the most about English Language: there is a lot lying beneath the surface. Particular words and techniques are used for specific reasons, and I will help guide you through the process of identifying features, investigating what effects they make, and discuss why the author chooses to use them. I can also teach the more linguistic-driven topics such as Child Language Acquisition, Language Variation, or Language Change (these topics are part of A-level). 


A little more about my academic background: I graduated from the University of Leeds in 2019 with a 1st Class degree in English Language and Linguistics.

I believe that asking questions is one of the most effective ways to learn, therefore tangents (within reason) are not something I try to avoid. Students are encouraged to ask questions, no question too silly! Additionally, mistakes are a fundamental part of learning, and it is important that students feel comfortable making mistakes. I will teach students how to find the answers for themselves because, as I mentioned earlier, a lot of English Language is detective work, so there is no concrete answer. I aim to equip students with the skills they need to tackle different types of questions. This way, students can feel confident going into an exam, ready for some detective work.
