English Literature is an extremely important and, for many students, compulsory part of education. This class is about improving the skills needed for close, thematic reading of both old and more contemporary texts. Using overarching themes found across literature, as well as giving suggestions for other relevant texts, this class aims not only to help pass any exams, but to also enrich your understanding and appreciation of the subject. Outside of exams, especially for any adults, this class can be a more freeform discussion of novels or poetry for anyone who wants to enjoy literature on a deeper level but isn't quite sure where to start or what avenues of thought to explore.

I teach 11+ students, KS3 and GCSE English students. I do realise people learn differently, so I will be flexible and try to adapt my teaching methods to each student. I may use worksheets, quizzes and even power points. For GCSE students, I will typically analyse different or required texts with them and help them improve their essay writing by planning answers to questions and assessing their recent work. I have just finished my A levels and am predicted an A in English language and literature, and I have achieved a grade 9 in GCSE English literature and a 7 in English language. I have studied many different texts and classics, like An Inspector Calls, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Romeo and Juliet. Through this job, I hope to improve my student's grades, not just by making sure they perform to the best of their abilities, but also by introducing to them the fun aspects of English.

Trusted teacher: This class will cover GCSE English Language, both paper 1 and paper 2. Looking at each of the topics individually and working though the questions. I will go through what is expected in each question and give more lessons on each topic. I will also be doing GCSE English Literature, looking at varieties of texts and explain on what is needed from you to answer the questions and understanding the texts.

Trusted teacher: I find students typically respond best to an lesson-style that closely mirrors Oxbridge-style supervisions, which might be called diagnostic; a written homework task provides not only useful opportunity for correcting rather specific details of style, grammar and dialectic --thus developing the corresponding skill of self-criticism -- but also serves as a springboard for explorations into the history, context, literary techniques and critical response of the work, or works at hand. I hope to help the student move beyond the set-texts, authors, or plays; not only because this would of itself be interesting, helping to develop the enthusiasm that is certainly the most vital ingredient for success in exams, but because being acquainted with the broader literary/cultural context that a work is situated greatly deepens one’s understanding of it. Moving beyond the set-texts needn’t be very time-consuming; often a few short articles, a chapter of a book, a poem or a play can dramatically broaden one’s perspective. Together with acquiring knowledge of historical context, the chief aims of my lessons will also be to help the student develop their ability to analyze texts.

My teaching method is based on my passion on grammar studies that has been cultivated through all these years approaching Italian, Latin, French and English and their respective linguistics and literature. Moreover, my interest and curiosity toward the other cultures, always give space also to common reality of a language that must be discovered through listening activities and oral comprehension and production. My goal is to help students improving their confidence with foreign languages and increase their cultural awareness. I have a distinct passion for grammar and linguistics and thanks to my studies, I have dealt years with it, elaborating a profound knowledge of the subject.

English can be a subject many find hard while at school. My aim as a private tutor is to get my students to learn to like English as well as improve their grades. I teach a range of ages and levels. One hour or more depending on how the student feels. After an initial test a solid plan will be made for the student so that the outcomes of the course are outlined from the start. Every 6 weeks a progress test will be given so that we can mionitor the progress being made and allow for more challenging opportunities. I love the subject I teach and I hope to omit that onto my student so that they avidly want to attend my lessons and leave feeling as though they have gained knowledge.

Gus - London£44
Graduating with a First in English Literature in 2017 from Trinity College, Cambridge, I have tutored 250+ hours in the past two years, at all levels from 7+ to A-Level, and in exam boards from AQA to the UKISET for international students. I have taught both English and international students, and so am familiar with the varieties of difficulty that students can encounter and a variety of approaches for addressing them. I enjoy re-examining the elementals of the subject through tutoring. My students have all registered often substantial improvements and I continue to be asked back by different families if they feel they need a boost. I'm happy to provide references from students and parents. I have taught a variety of age ranges for school admissions from 7 to 13+. I have worked with students aiming for schools including Godolphin and Latymer, Harrodian, Kings Canterbury and Wycombe Abbey. The problems students have had have varied each time, from simple confidence and time-keeping issues, to more difficult ones like English being a second language or dyslexia. However every pupil I’ve taught so far has markedly improved and gained admission to at least one of the schools of their choice. I think my main strength as a tutor is an ability to explain concepts dealing with question structure and exam technique, and help the student to gently internalise them and gain their own confidence. I aim to strike a balance between engaging, personal commitment to making the student see and realise an organic interest in reading and writing, alongside the necessity of navigating exam requirements - but without making them seem restrictive or daunting. I really enjoy trying to individualise lessons for the student's specific needs and so will also try to stoke a personal interest and response to material studied, as I believe this makes for a much more enjoyable and painless process of learning. I am always keen to recommend or discuss specific books or authors of possible help or interest to students or parents. I aim to strike a balance between engaging, personal commitment to making the student see and realise an interest in reading and writing, alongside the necessity of navigating exam strictures and requirements - without making them seem restrictive or off-putting. I can also help with general essay-structuring/researching/writing skills in subjects not related to English. I can also help with Drama and Theatre-related studies.

I am currently studying French and German at the University of Cambridge, after having done French, German, and English at A-Level. This class will be individual to any student who takes it, if they arrive with questions or topics they are struggling with then I can help them improve those, or if they give me some samples of work they have done I can go through them and identify points to work on together. If students simply want to learn a new language for pleasure, then this is something I am also able to facilitate, as long as they tell me what sort of level they are already at.
