Experience: Author-founder of an English education site with nearly two million hits each year. I am a qualified English teacher with five years` experience and a proven track record. I have experience in three Outstanding secondary schools, most recently working in a school with 95% A-C in English Literature and Language, non-selective intake. My GCSE students achieve one grade above national averages for their ability. Tutees often reach two grades higher.
Success with students of all abilities, from highly reluctant boys (and girls), to potential Oxbridge applicants.
Special programmes for reluctant readers and those who can`t get their ideas down on paper, from age 8 up.
I have current experience of the GCSE, including Controlled Assessments (replacing the Coursework element), and of the level system for KS3 and KS2.
