About me

Hi, I’m Jasmine and I graduated from Durham University in June 2015 with a degree in Human Sciences. 

Following this I completed my masters in Chinese Law & Mandarin in Shanghai whilst tutoring English to children.

I am currently studying for my Graduate Diploma in Law and am a part-time Nanny. 

I’m offering tuition in GCSE English and GCSE Biology, for all exam boards. 

I’d love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with my tutees. Having studied at a British and American boarding school I have an extensive knowledge of the subject matter and a variety of learning techniques. 

Sessions:

I like to keep things informal, laid-back and relaxed so that students feel they can ask any question. As a tutor, my sessions will be adapted to whatever it is that you want to learn: exam technique, tricky concepts from class or topics on the specification that you’re unsure about. 

Experience:

Current Au-pair / Part-time Nanny

As a qualified Brownie leader I have a number of years of experience working with young people and am patient and clear in my explanations.

I have previously worked as a Kumon English tutor.

I aim to pass on my enthusiasm for English and Biology in a fun and creative way. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for either a tutorial or a free taster session. A free taster session is a chance to meet me and discuss any worries with me before committing to a tutorial.

Availability

Anytime Mon-Wed and Sat-Sun,  evenings Thurs-Fri.

I’m flexible with timings, with added availability in the lead up to exam periods.

Jasmine has some good assessments on pupil and I agreed with her but didn't know how to express it. She gives reassurance to parents on issues concerned. Starting connection was a bit delayed. PC frozen at odd times - a concern on timing and focus distraction.

Questions Jasmine has answered

GCSE English: writing to analyse, review and comment

Analysing, Reviewing and Commenting

 

 

These 3 types of writing can be very similar.

 

They require:

  • a thought-out analysis of the topic
  • careful selection of information after analysis
  • a well-structured, personal writing based on the analysis.

 

The difference between analysing, reviewing and commenting mainly depends on:

  • the blend of fact and opinion in your writing
  • how subjective or objective the piece of writing needs to be.

 

Questions to ask when analysing:

  • Can you think critically about a topic?
  • Can you gather information about a topic, and then reflect on it?
  • Can you break a topic down into smaller pieces in order to express your ideas about it?
  • Can you consider different viewpoints about a topic?

 

Questions to ask when reviewing:

  • Can you structure your writing effectively so that the reader can gain an overview of the topic?
  • Are you able to stick to the topic and not go ‘off-piste’?
  • Are you looking at the piece as a whole instead of going into minor details?
  • Can you summarise and give your opinion on a topic?

 

Questions to ask when commenting:

  • Can you structure an effective personal response to a topic?
  • Are you able to show you can formulate your own opinions?
  • Can you be subjective and do more than summarise the topic?

 

A sample structure for a piece of analyse, review or comment work:

 

 

Introduction

Show that the topic is understood

Write a topic sentence

 

Main Body

Use your sources to explain the positive points

Use discursive markers. Make a general/ moral point.

Use extended vocabulary.

Use your sources to explain the negative points

Use discursive markers. Make a general/ moral point.

Use extended vocabulary

 

Conclusion

Write an engaging Conclusion that sums up your work
