  • Olivia Leung's essay on Great Expectations

    Olivia_321 GCSE English Tutor (North London) Picture The notion that Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations is a ‘contemporary moral fable’ is a complex one.  Before the time the author was born in 1812, the majority of the British population lived in the countryside.  The lack of opportunity due to insufficient technology meant that people could not act on their self-interests in...

  • No Such Thing as CAN'T

    Maroulla GCSE English Tutor (Enfield) Picture The plaintive cry of 'Miss, I can't do this', is banned from my students' lips. They are simply not allowed to use it.  'Can't' implies defeat, an inability to complete a task, it's giving up.  Instead, the mantra is: ' I can do this, but I need a bit more help to understand it better.'

  • Online Tuition in the Technology Age

    Ruth Mitchell GCSE English Tutor (East London) Picture How can online tuition be as effective as face-to-face? Can technology let the student and tutor become well connected?
