Personal Message
I love tutoring English and know that English empowers us all with the words to express far more fully who we are! English Tuition increases confidence and articulacy.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I tutor English and Literature as well as offering Expert Feedback on essays, dissertations, UCAS forms and Creative Writing Projects. My website now has 'Tusi Notes' available for students to enhance their thinking about examination texts. These will shortly be offered on Amazon Kindle too. I prepare students for examinations up to PhD levels. I am also a qualified NLP Master Practitioner and have found NLP very useful in enhancing students' confidence and creative thinking. I am a facilitator with Liverpool University's Nationally influential Get into Reading (GIR) Scheme. I carry out tutoring via email/telephone too and this is very helpful for students preparing essays and projects. I have written for Carol Ann Duffy's website Sheer Poetry and am particularly fond of teaching Shakespeare, Victorian literature, Contemporary Fiction, Creative Writing, the Short Story and Toni Morrison. I have just published two new introductions for the Worth Press' editions of Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol. I am currently writing a novel called The Amber Collector. I am a member of Phoenix Writers in Horwich.
