Information about Rory
My name is Rory and I am an enthusiastic, approachable tutor with a passion for writing, communication and helping my students learn to love English.
I`m an experienced English tutor and post-graduate from the University of Exeter with a Distinction in Literary Studies (MA, 2019), where I was awarded the Dean`s Prize for Academic Excellence and obtained the highest-achieving dissertation in my cohort. For my undergraduate degree, I studied at Lancaster University and was awarded a `Highly Commended` BA Hons First in English Literature and the Second Year Prize for achieving the highest marks of any student in the English and Creative Writing Department.
Availability: Mon-Fri. 9AM-9PM.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: I like to give my students the full attention they`re often unable to receive in the classroom boosting their confidence in communication and encouraging them to ask questions they`ve always wanted to ask. I tailor sessions to individual learning styles, identify areas for improvements and examine each student`s personal objectives.
As an experienced e-Learning tutor, I am well-equipped to help students transition to learning from home in the current climate and tutor from KS3 to post-graduate level. Having represented the United Kingdom in the European Youth Parliament I am also keen to coach individuals in public speaking.
I work through my students` essays and coursework to show students exactly where they are picking up or missing out on marks from the examiner. Having taken my fair share of nerve-wracking exams, I am keen to work with students to make efficient revision plans, improve their exam skills and reduce exam anxiety.
I look forward to hearing from you!
