If you are achieving high results, hoping to raise your grades, or experiencing difficulty, I have relevant experience.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I'm a specialist in English studies and a lot of my tutoring is for A Level, or GCSE, English Literature or Language and Literature. I'm familiar with a range of Exam Boards for secondary studies and have tutored the OCR, AQA, WJEC and Edexcel curriculums. I've taught in two university English departments and tutored students at degree level. If you're a parent, my skills may even be useful to you - CV Writing, editing, proof-reading or a related project.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I completed an English research degree, studied Modern Literature at Queen Mary and have a B.Sc. (Hons) Anthropology/Psychology from Goldsmiths. I completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Lifelong Learning at Birkbeck College also. Please see uploaded CV on this site.
What kind of experience do you have?
I've worked with students at a variety of schools on English Literature or Language and Literature. I assisted a GCSE student who was achieving A grades, and wanting to gain an A*, to understand why particular essays were reaching the highest standard. She needed to know what she was doing right to consolidate her achievements. I helped her make use of classroom learning, develop her knowledge and build analytical skills. A young adult enrolled as an external candidate at a private centre considered my suggestions for a choice of novel before electing Vanity Fair for A2 English Language and Literature. This student devised creative, and re-creative, writing tasks including a transcript of a television interview between Piers Morgan and Thackeray's character, Becky Sharpe. I assessed the writing and the marks were subsequently corroborated by the examination board. My experience as an Examiner for AS English with OCR; Moderator for the International Baccalaureate Diploma in Literature and Examiner for GCSE with AQA is useful when working toward exams or on essay-writing skills. I tutored another student over the three years of an English degree at Queen Mary. We worked toward an essay on Dr Faustus for an introductory course and essays in subsequent years including post-colonial literature and eighteenth century writing. I taught in the English Departments at the University of Kent and University of Greenwich.

AS and A2 English Literature/Language; GCSE English Literature/Language; B.A. English.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Where and with whom did you train?

Tell me about some of your current students.
I recently tutored an A2 English Literature student working on writing skills, and essay development, with one. The sessions built understanding of works by writers including Virginia Woolf, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Graham Greene and Phillip Larkin. I'm currently working with an adult learner who is completing an IGCSE in English Language.
Do you have a personal message for students?
