Information about Rebecca

I am a friendly, creative and dedicated English tutor, teaching online and in South West Surrey.

My key area of focus is English Literature A-level (Edexcel; AQA) and International Baccalaureate at KS5. I am able to support students in their understanding and analysis of texts, essay writing, coursework and exam preparation.

Recently taught A-level/ IB drama, prose and poetry texts include: Othello, A Midsummer Night`s Dream, Twelfth Night, A Streetcar Named Desire, Doctor Faustus, A Doll`s House, Frankenstein, Wuthering Heights, Mrs Dalloway, Hard Times, The Handmaid`s Tale, Never Let Me Go, Atonement, The Great Gatsby, Skirrid Hill, The World`s Wife, the poetry of John Donne, John Keats and Chaucer, as well as Romantic Poetry and the Poems of the Decade anthology. I am able to support students in their analysis of unseen prose and poetry.

I take a pupil-centred approach to my tutoring practice, believing that the best way to engage students with their course is to ensure that learning is delivered in both an individualised and enjoyable manner.

I am patient, academically able and committed to supporting each pupil to reach their full potential.

I have a great deal of experience, and very much enjoy, working with pupils who have special educational needs, including those with ASD, PDA, ADHD, SEMH and dyslexia.

I have a BA (Hons) in English and European Literature from the University of Warwick. In addition, I have undertaken several professional development courses in the area of teaching and learning support.

Availability: Please get in touch to discuss your requirements. I offer a lower rate for online lessons.

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Experience: I have worked in education – in both school and private settings – for six years. Prior to this, I worked in the advertising and charity sectors. In a variety of secondary and primary - mainstream and SEN - schools, I have been employed as a literacy coordinator, English teacher and learning support practitioner. I currently tutor pupils privately, mainly at KS5 level.

Rebecca has a lovely rapport with my daughter and appears to be very knowledgeable in the tutoring areas we require. We have only had an initial session with Rebecca so far, but are looking forward to our planned sessions once term starts.

My son received excellent help towards his English GCSE exams from Rebecca. She took the time to understand exactly what help was needed and then focused very effectively on building up English Language technique particularly with regards to structuring his answers and PEE technique. She provided homework in the form of previous exam questions targeting what they had covered in the session and then went through it thoroughly at the next meeting. My son found these and the sessions very useful.

Rebecca has tailored her teaching to the way that Emily learns. She is enthusiastic and Emily is really enjoying the sessions. I am sure that her confidence will continue to grow under Rebecca`s guidance.
