I am a teacher of English Literature and Language with a PGCE from UCL Institute of Education and a Masters in Modern Literature.
I have 17 years experience, 11 in a sixth form setting as an English lecturer (GCSE and A level) and learning support teacher. I have six years experience as an undergraduate tutor (testimonials available upon request).
I regularly take students up at least one grade, but usually it`s two. On one occasion a student went from a predicted `C` to an A** - after just six months of weekly tuition. * please see reviews for further information.

Feedback For Dorothy Rose (5)
Dorothy Rose has been teaching Business English to an employee at a corporate company in London City for nearly 2 months and the lessons seem to be going extraordinarily well. In my opinion she is very competent, professional, reliable and organised, and I would highly recommend her services.
I can`t thank her enough for all the help she has given me. As a GCSE student whose English is the weakest subject, Dorothy helped me prove my school`s predicted grades wrong. Her weekly feedback and corrections to my literature essays were the most important factor for my rapid improvement. Within 5/6 months of tutoring, I went from a C to A* in English which is absolutely unbelievable. But, it happened and I thank her for that.
Tutors Response :
Thank you so much, Afia, It`s an outstanding result and I am immensely proud. Your determination to improve and hours of extra practise certainly paid off. Well deserved!
Dorothy Rose is a brilliant tutor, she straight away identified the problems my daughter has and after just a few lessons my daughter`s confidence is coming back and she feels much better about her coming GCSE exams next year.
This year I resat two exams for my English Language and Literature A level. Previously I had gotten a grade D but I wanted to get a grade C this year. She worked with me on improving the structure of my essays such as improving my introductions and conclusions and making sure I planned each essay sufficiently. Also she helped improve my knowledge of grammar and literary terminology. I met my tutor several times about two weeks before the exams. She helped me improve my essays significantly. I would recommend her to anyone.
Great tutor. Really takes her time getting to know the student and what it is they need help in. Friendly and most importantly, effective approach.
