Information about Connie
My name is Connie, and I absolutely love all things books and poetry. My favourite book is Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. I am an enthusiastic and passionate graduate, looking to tutor in English Language and/or English Literature from primary to GCSE and A-Level.
I would love to help you out with English. I believe that the best tutors and teachers are those who truly love what they`re teaching. I can help with close reading skills and language analysis, exam technique, eliciting meaning, building confidence, writing style, essay structure, and more. Ill encourage my students to use their own thoughts and feelings to write strong and successful essays and answers. I am ready to personalise each lesson to help my students. I also have good knowledge of exam structure and I will work closely with the mark schemes and assessment objectives of each exam board to ensure my students are receiving tuition tailored to help them succeed. Where necessary, we can work through practice and past papers. I`ll offer regular tips for bringing the characters or tasks in your exams to life, which is the best way to succeed, and it`s also a lot of fun!
I am also happy to take on Creative Writing tutoring for any individuals interested, of any age.
Availability: Weekdays and weekends, in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings. Please contact me for information on a specific time.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have been tutoring for MyTutor for a year, and have experience in private tuition. Alongside my own personal experience of English exams, in which I received top grades, I have a lot of experience in the field as my mother is an English teacher and tutor and she has a wealth of resources for me to plunder!
I have a Masters with Distinction in English Literature, and I spent a year studying abroad at the University of California, Berkeley, where I received a 4.0GPA. I have received top results throughout my life in all English exams I have taken, including two A*s in my English GCSEs and an A* in English Literature at A-Level.
