Educated to Masters level with an Oxford undergraduate degree in English Language & Literature, I have tutored KS3, GCSE, A-Level and Undergraduate English for over 5 years. I also provide support with UCAS applications and personal statements. In particular, I can provide help with Oxbridge applications, and interview preparation. I cover a range of focusses, including help with coursework, and with specific course texts. I also prepare students for exams and have had an excellent degree of success in improving students` grades, often by several grade boundaries; to my great joy, the vast majority of my students have gone on to achieve A and A* grades at GCSE and A-Level.
I am happy to travel in the Bucks area to tutor, and it`s often nice to meet tutees informally before the sessions begin, so that we can discuss the focus and aims of the tutorials, and get to know one another. I like to try and make English as accessible as possible for students, as well as being flexible with teaching approaches and injecting fun and relevancy into the subject.
I also work in set design in the film industry, so it is sometimes simply the case during busy periods that I am unable to fit more students into my schedule, regrettably.
Availability: I am available for work during weekends and some weekday evenings.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have a wide range of experience of working with young people, as a tutor, and through the music and drama groups I have worked with. Contact this Tutor
