Information about Rose

I am an approachable, passionate and effective online English tutor and Cambridge graduate with 8+ years’ experience helping students excel at all levels, with a focus on A Level and GCSE.

My specialism is helping students with essay writing and exam technique. The most common difficulty my students encounter is finding a way to structure their thoughts about a text or idea in a logical, fluent and confident way. There are a few simple tools and concepts I teach, often untaught in schools, that, when practiced and mastered, can solve ingrained problems and help the struggling student to become a confident, successful essay-writer.

I teach across exam boards, including AQA, Edexcel, Cambridge/ Edexcel IGCSE, OCR, WJEC and Eduqas. I have extensive knowledge of a variety of the current set texts, including: all Shakespeare plays, all Poetry Anthologies, An Inspector Calls, Atonement, Lord of the Flies, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Frankenstein, A Christmas Carol, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Great Expectations, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and Silas Marner.



Availability: I am available weekdays and Sundays.

Willing to travel: 50 miles

Experience: I have lived in Cambodia, Beijing, Thailand and Canada while developing a career as a filmmaker and writer alongside a career in education. I have 2 years’ experience teaching Creative Writing, across a variety of genres, to undergraduates in the most prestigious Creative Writing program in Canada (UBC), while studying for my Masters degree. Having taught in both the international and local systems in all these different places, and being fluent in Mandarin Chinese, I have a wealth of experience navigating cultural differences and communicating effectively across them.

I believe that a proper conversation, individual to individual, is always the beginning of true understanding, and true understanding is the key to academic success. Exploring texts and ideas at a deep, personal level is hugely rewarding for both tutor and tutee, and I intend to continue working with students in this way well into the future.

I have tutored using online platforms for 3+ years now, and find the flexibility and convenience this offers to be highly beneficial for tutor, tutee, and parent. Being able to schedule lessons while either I or my student is travelling, being able to connect with students who live abroad or further afield, being able to adjust to sudden changes in a student`s schedule without too much hassle, are all reasons why I choose to tutor online exclusively.

I am new to this platform. Please get in touch if you have any questions at all about how I approach sessions.

Rose is an excellent teacher who puts a lot of thought into how she presents the class. Her lessons are engaging, useful, and she has always encouraged me to speak more during the classes. She has helped me reach my goals in 2 months and I am also personally grateful to her for that. She adapts to the student`s needs, frequently communicate with the student, has an open and honest relationship with her students, acts professionally and respectably, and most importantly she is flexible and patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning English.

Rose is an excellent tutor with a broad range of knowledge across English literature texts. She is reliable and approachable. My daughter is finding her to be most helpful with her A level studies.
