Information about Mary

I am passionate about the study of English, both the use of language and different genres of literature. I have over twenty years experience of teaching in both state and independent schools and colleges. I have been in charge of University applications in a large independent grammar school. I have always achieved excellent results. My A level results were always in the top 25% in the country and frequently in the top 10%.
I have worked as an examiner for A level English Language and am currently an examiner for A2 Literature.I have also marked English papers for entrance exams to grammar schools. I believe that students now need to be very clear about assessment objectives and how to address them. My up to date experience as an examiner enables me to prepare students to meet the rigours of the exams and the demands of coursework. I always mark students` work in a very detailed way with lots of advice on how to improve. The work is always returned the next time I see the student.
I have always had very positive feedback from my students. My enthusiasm for the subjects helps the students to enjoy their work. I am able to foster and improve the confidence of the tutees I teach. I tailor lessons to the need of the individual. My enthusiastic approach coupled with a sense of humour means that students enjoy my lessons.

Availability: I am available during the day, evenings and weekends.

Willing to travel: 1 miles

Experience: I have over 20 years` experience of teaching to public exam level in English Literature and English Language to A level. I have examined English Language at A level.I am a current A level Literature examiner I have taught GCSE English and English Literature.
I have taught pupils aged 11-18 and have marked entrance exams for grammar schools.
I have taught in sixth form colleges and grammar schools. Many students of mine have gone on to achieve successful Oxbridge entrance.
I have been in charge of university entrance applications in both a grammar school and an FE college. I was Head of Upper Sixth Form at a leading independent grammar school. I will always tailor lessons to the individual student’s needs I am able to give students individual help in writing personal statements for their applications.

My stepson has been seeing Mary for the past 4 months in preparation for his GCSE English exams. With her guidance and support, he has gained confidence and understanding in the skills and techniques needed to achieve good marks in both Literature and Language. This has been reflected in his grades achieved at school. He enjoys attending his sessions. Thank you

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for the feedback. I am very pleased with the progress Michael has made and am glad that he has gained confidence. He is a delight to teach and I thoroughly enjoy our sessions.

My Son has had A level English tuition with Mary since November 2018 leading up to his final exams in May 2019. From the first lesson his work began to show improvement and his marks have increased by 1 to 2 grades. The feedback from college has been extremely positive and they see a marked improvement in his approach to the exam questions. He enjoys his time with Mary and feels completely at ease. I recommend Mary highly - she has given Sam a new confidence in his ability and enabled him to reach his potential.
