  • English Teaching Philosophy

    Olivia321 GCSE English Tutor (North London) Picture Students will be always be given a reasonable amount of homework.   Homework is designed to help students learn – improve on their weaknesses and develop on strengths.   Students will be taught to focus on the big-picture.  Rather than just seeing their homework as a piece of paper that needs to be done to get marked, Olivia will...
  • 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.' Result: confident students.

  • 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 how many times the text has been...

    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?

The growth in online tutoring suggests a lot of...

  • 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 to scrape enough of those O levels to...
