    Joanna Marshall GCSE English Tutor (Bath) Picture
    How are animals and animal imagery used in Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men? Steinbeck uses a lot of animal imagery and symbolism in his novel. In particular, the character and physical strength of Lennie is often portrayed through the use of animal imagery. Have a look at these quotes and think...

    EnglishTutor1052 GCSE English Tutor (North West London) Picture
    On both of my teaching placements I have observed a general difference in the way pupils feel about talking and writing in class about poetry as opposed to other types of literary text and non-fiction.

  • Express Your Opinion

    Maroulla GCSE English Tutor (Enfield) Picture
    I must have taught 'Romeo & Juliet', 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' 'Of Mice and Men' 'Lord of the Flies' and WW1 poetry more times than I care to remember. "Isn't it boring?" I am often asked. No - it's not, because the literature is so good that there is always something else to learn, no matter...

    Laura Pasternack GCSE English Tutor (West London) Picture
    When Ofqual, the body that regulates standards of public examinations, announced last August that speaking and listening would no longer be allowed to add any marks to the overall grade at GCSE, there was a mixed response from students and teachers alike.

  • 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? Won't the student be less focused? Won't the lesson be less formal? These are all issues that can concern a parent or adult learner who is considering online tuition. The...

  • Audio books - your secret weapon!

    Stephen Challis GCSE English Tutor (Brighton) Picture
    Audio books – your secret weapon! Getting students to read set texts can be a real challenge. Many students simply don’t ever read the whole book they are using as a set text and this can limit their understanding terribly. Writing an essay about how a character evolves throughout a story is...
  • Choose to Read and Take the Initiative

    Sarah Houston Cameron GCSE English Tutor (Northampton) Picture
    I was completely hopeless at school and was destined to fail most of my exams at 16. They were O levels then! The only thing I seemed to be good at was playing the violin and I wasn't even sure that was my calling in life. Anyway, I struggled through what we now know as year 10 and 11, managing...
