Information about Melissa

I am Head of English at collingham Independent GCSE and Sixth Form College where I teach individuals and very small groups. Experienced with OCR, EdExcel and AQA. I have been tutoring privately for 5 years and all my students have enjoyed our work together and improved their grades.

I was educated at Westminster and won an Exhibition (scholarship) to read English at Exeter College, Oxford.

My passion - and discipline - is English literature, although I have also taught History of Art, which I studied at A Level and also love.

I have a thorough knowledge of the English classic set texts - particularly the novel, and Shakespeare. I can communicate my enthusiasm for my subject to you - and also teach you how to structure your thoughts into a winning essay.

I am a sympathetic person, a mother of two boys and responsible in every way.

Availability: I am available some evenings and at weekends.

Willing to travel: 3 miles

Experience: I have been tutoring A level for five years and I am proud to say that all my students have significantly improved their grades through studying with me. One student (who had dropped out and needed to work fast) got 100% in his coursework and achieved an A, another got 96%.

I am Assistant Head of English Collingham Independent Sixth Form and GCSE College - a leading college for students of varying ability. I teach small groups a one year course as well as the AS and A2 two year course.

I also offer GCSE English Language and Oxbridge entry.
