Information about Lynne
I am a recently semi-retired English teacher and Head of English. I have a real passion for my subject and aim to share this with my students, as well as increasing their confidence and understanding of the subject and the key exam strategies and skills required to achieve high grades. A supportive, caring but calm approach ( plus humour when necessary!) is my style and my constant engagement with exam marking allows me to keep closely involved with specimen papers and changes in marking and subject content. I believe that the personal attention,structured approach and atmosphere that can be developed in one-to-one lessons help enormously in developing not only students` progress but also their self -esteem and enjoyment I feel that my reinforcement of key skills ,detailed explanations of texts and tasks combined with constant encouragement of students to discuss any uncertainties they may have is a sucessful approach.
Availability: I am available to tutor in the evenings and weekends. Morning and afternoon sessions during the holidays can be arranged , especially when coursework and exam deadlines draw near .
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have taught English Literature and Language at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 for over 30 years. I have extensive experience of GCSE and AS and A Level (Literature, Language and the combined Language/Literature ) for several exam boards and have a proven record of excellent exam results. My primary aim and interest have always been to support all students individually, according to their needs, and this has included preparing candidates for Oxbridge and Ucas entrance, providing the extra resources required for GCSE and A Level resit exams and supporting pupils between the ages of 10-18 who require additional literacy and comprehension teaching. I have been a senior examiner for OCR and CIE for over 15 years and am also a team leader and exam reviser for 2 boards . I also have experience of teaching spoken and written English to adult learners for whom English is not their first language.

Feedback For Lynne (4)
Lynne has been an outstanding tutor who has helped me to gain confidence in GCSE English Language and Literature. Her lessons have always helped me to understand how to answer the different exam questions thus I am confident that I would have been able to gain very good results if I were to take the exams in May/June.
Lynne is an absolutely brilliant tutor. My son lacked confidence in English and also wanted to get a higher grade in his GCSEs.
He only started being tutored by Lynne in February but when we went to parents evening in April his English Teacher said that she had noticed a great improvement in his work over the last couple of months.
My son has really enjoyed being tutored by Lynne as she is friendly, engaging, very interesting to talk to and went into great depth in both Language and Literature. He feels so much more confident now that he is doing his GCSEs.
Lynne is a lovely lady and it has been a pleasure to meet her. She is very professional and we would highly recommend her. I honestly can`t thank her enough for tutoring and helping my son.
Absoltely amazing teacher, she gave me the confidence, knowlege and skill that i needed in such a short amount of time to go into my A Level AQA english literature exam, and come out with the A grade that i needed! I couldn`t have done it without their help.
