I am an experienced tutor who earlier this year left Oxford University with a first-class degree in English Language and Literature, graduating third of my class of 246 students. I welcome all students seeking tutoring in English-related subjects at GCSE, A-Level and degree, in addition to offering Oxbridge and general university application guidance.
I bring my academic excellence to bear upon my teaching, as my degree puts me in the best position to provide my students with the advanced insights into texts that can get them the highest marks. Of course, my teaching strategies are adapted to each individual student - tailored to their preferred and most effective styles of learning - and are suited to all range of abilities, whether exceptional or under-achieving. My number one priority is always the improvement and progression of my students, who I push and challenge in my lessons because I am committed to helping them achieve the best marks they are capable of. I am particularly proud of how my enthusiasm and passion for my subject has in past lessons been able to convert even the most anti-English students into excited learners.
My lessons are also differentiated according to student needs, for example, an A-Level student could require from me tutoring in a) in-depth analysis of core texts b) close reading skills in poetry and prose passages c) essay-writing skills, including coursework support e) exam preparation. I also offer tutoring in university Oxbridge applications, having worked alongside tutors at St John`s College during admissions.
Availability: I offer extremely flexible times, from morning to evening on the weekdays, with certain weekend sessions also available.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: In 2012-13 I worked as an e-mentor providing online tutoring for disadvantaged students through Villiers Park Educational Trust, and have since then tutored part-time. For the previous six months I have been working as a tutor full-time, frequently tutoring through organisations such as Elite IB and Blue Tutors.Contact this Tutor
