  • Building Towards Your Goals

    Gillian Crimp GCSE English Tutor (Exeter) Picture    The overwhelming problem exhibited by students when they arrive for their first tutoring experience is lack of self-confidence. Many of them say to me 'I'm rubbish at English' or I'm rubbish at spelling/writing/grammar'. How a young person has come to this negative conclusion of themselves is usually a mystery. When I worked in...
  • Answering Questions on Poetry

    Lynne F GCSE English Tutor (North West London) Picture When answering questions on poetry there are several things to consider: - When the question asks you to "consider the language" this is how the poet helps to convey his ideas to the reader.  This is done through TONE, IMAGERY, RHYTHM, SOUND, MOOD AND REPITITION.  Always give examples of where this is used in the poem and explain...
  • How to teach essay writing in a way that works Editor's Pick

    Karina LQ GCSE English Tutor (South East London) Picture When I was doing my teacher training, something I really struggled with was how to teach kids to write great essays. Part of my struggle was that essay writing had – as far as I could remember – come quite naturally to me. Sure, I had occasionally come across the odd stumbling-block – how to phrase a particular thesis statement or how...
  • Revision: How can I revise to maximise my result?

    Michael Lightley GCSE English Tutor (Coventry) Picture As a private English tutor, I often find myself having many sessions with students where we sit down for the hour and talk about how to generically revise for all subjects, so I feel it would be useful to share some tips in this article that might help to maximise time spent revising. 1) Ensure that regular breaks are taken –...
  • GCSE Private Tuition: How do I know it will help

    Mr Dalton GCSE English Tutor (Walsall) Picture The decision to hire a private tutor is a difficult one.  If only we, in life, could hire professionals to perform a service for us and know that it would certainly make a difference. I believe, in the world of private tuition, that you can certainly eliminate the chances of it being unsuccessful. In my last article I talked...
  • Private Tuition – How do I know who to hire?

    Mr Dalton GCSE English Tutor (Walsall) Picture Private tuition is something that most parents entertain at some stage of their child’s education. Most parents feel that private tuition is something that will help compliment learning that is taking place at school and make a significant difference to examination outcomes. They are correct. Yet there are many things to make sure...
  • Private Tuition – What are the benefits?

    Mr Dalton GCSE English Tutor (Walsall) Picture Being a private English and 11+ tutor, I see the many benefits for students who are tutored privately.  Parents often consider exploring private tuition, whether it is Maths, Science, English or any other subject.  So what can the benefits be? Confidence is such a huge factor in life.  Even when we are adults most people need a...
  • How important is handwriting?

    Philippa Briscoe GCSE English Tutor (Stevenage) Picture When I first started teaching I didn’t put much emphasis on handwriting. As long as I was able to read the work then I was happy, after all, how many people really hand write these days? During my five years between graduating and retraining as a teacher I hardly picked up a pen, other than to write on an occasional post it. The...
  • Tutoring to the Test

    Philippa Briscoe GCSE English Tutor (Stevenage) Picture Hi, I’m Philippa and I tutor to the test.  There is a beautiful dream that us English teachers have about how students can learn to love and appreciate our subject. About how students will read books because they love stories and about how they will one day understand that capital letters are more than just a font style choice. I...
  • 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...
