About me

I am a student currently studying English at Bristol University. I have always loved English and am keen to share my passion and help others achieve the best they can. My main aim is to make sessions exciting and interesting as I think there is a tendency with teaching English to focus too much on the syllabus aims and to forget about ensuring a student is enjoying what they are learning.

I am a student currently studying English at Bristol University. I have always loved English and am keen to share my passion and help others achieve the best they can. My main aim is to make sessions exciting and interesting as I think there is a tendency with teaching English to focus too much on the syllabus aims and to forget about ensuring a student is enjoying what they are learning. I also tutor maths and science up to GCSE level and hope to instil a similar passion in students about their subject whilst ensuring a full understanding of it.

I am also fully aware of how pressurized exams can be. I hope, not only, to help students with effective exam revision but also to give tried and tested advice on how to prepare for an exam in other ways; to deal with nerves and to ensure my students have the best possible chance of achieving what they deserve to. Having taken school examination fairly recently I am able to empathise with students and hope to make my sessions personal and motivating, as well as interesting and inspiring.

I will tailor my sessions to individual students needs, however my main aim is to ensure they are confident in their subject and well prepared for any examinations.

-I hope to give useful advice on planning and writing fluent and sophisticated essays, encouraging my students to explore their ideas beyond what they learn in class.

-I will assist in the close reading of prose and poetry, leaving students feeling confident in approaching unseen texts.

-In the lead up to exams I will base my sessions around answering questions from past papers as this is often (and certainly was for me) the most effective revision technique.

-I will also give advice on how to prepare for the exam in other ways and on techniques to manage nerves and use time and energy effectively on the day.

I also believe enjoyment of your subject is paramount to achieving highly and so hope to make my sessions thought-provoking and exciting, encouraging students to go further with what they have been taught in school.
