GCSE/A Level/IB English Language and Literature tutoring

My classes will be based on exam and course preparation; which includes GCSE, A levels, and IB. Since my expertise is in English Literature, I will be teaching English Language and/or Literature. I can help guide students in understanding how to approach a literary text and most importantly, teaching them critical thinking. I have access to various academic sources such as JSTOR and Google Scholar. I also have subscriptions to various sites such as LitCharts, which is incredibly useful for English Literature courses. I also have copies of my previous essays from my high school days, which will be helpful in using it as an example of how to write an essay. I don't believe that there is one way of writing an essay - and I don't want students to just improve by copying - but having a sample essay can be useful to break down why it received good grades and analyse what made it work.

Having completed various exams when I did my GCSEs and IB, I've also become accustomed to taking exams and I understand that doing well on exams is just a matter of practice. Through my classes, I can teach students how to approach various exams, including: how to break down questions, how to structure your time, and how to plan essays during an exam.

About Me

I am an English Literature graduate from King's College London. Prior to university, I also did English Language and Literature Higher Level in IB and English Language and Literature GCSE. I got a 7 in my English IB finals (translates to A* in A levels) and an A* in GCSE. Although I did IB, I am also familiar and am an expertise in English Language/Literature A levels, since the topics and marking are similar.

I've always loved reading since I was a kid, and surprisingly, my passion for reading and literature has only increased throughout the years and after studying it in an academic level. Being able to analyse and understand the context behind the literary works that I read have just expanded my knowledge of them, and thus, my enjoyment of them.

I have a background in teaching and tutoring. In high school, I volunteered as an English tutor for underprivileged children in Indonesia. I also volunteered as a tutor in a non profit charity organisation - called KNS - last summer. Both of these experiences were so healing and inspiring, and I tried very hard to make the classes as interactive and interesting as possible, and I will do the same with my tutoring classes!

English Language - Writing, Speaking, Listening Comprehension
Can learning English be fun, insightful, productive and effective at the same time? I believe so! Whatever your background or profession, deciding to learn a foreign language is a great way to add another dimension to your life and make your mind work in a new way. You become a (slightly) different person, since along with a new language, one learns to look at the world in a slightly different way. This is why my approach to teaching English is not only aimed at laying or strengthening the foundational knowledge - grammar, speaking, writing and listening skills, but also at introducing students to the culture of the English-speaking population. We will find out what English speakers find funny, what drives them to tears, what makes them feel proud and what they get embarrassed about. Open to students of all levels, my course usually is taught online, using a variety of visual aids and a wide range of material, from textbooks to YouTube videos. In teaching advanced learners, I often refer to pieces of literature such as novels and poems, since they easily spark discussions, which in turn improves the students' grasp and feel of the language. In doing so, I take students beyond ordinary textbooks and grammar books, since they are no more than guides to learning, not absolute authorities, and because to me language is a living, constantly evolving matter, which you must submerge yourself into in order to understand. In addition to my unorthodox approach, what sets me apart is a collection of unique, language-related experiences, which translate into a good ability to understand nuances of the English language. A native Russian speaker, I have lived in the UK for over 5 years, went to a Scottish boarding school and have even completed a university degree in English. Thanks to my linguistic and cultural competency, I will make sure that you are never lost in translation! Are you interested? Then contact me today!

Sarah
French and English lessons for all levels + preparation for the GCSE
As a recent graduate from a Master degree in teaching English, with 5 years of experience tutoring French children and students privately. During my two years of master, I taught English to secondary school students. The theory and the practise, allowed me to develop my teaching skills and through tutoring I have learned to tailor my teaching methods to the student’s needs. Moreover, throughout my years of tutoring, I could gave back the confidence that students were lacking in their education, which led to one of my students to obtain her “brevet” equivalent of the English GSCE with a high grade. The success was hinged through the learning material that I created. Indeed, I produced my own lesson plans and I provided weekly progress homework.

"Master the Art of English: From Basics to Business, Colloquialisms to Confident Communication"
As an English teacher, I design my classes to accommodate learners of all levels and ages. My goal is to help students improve their skills in reading, writing, speaking, and understanding English. Beyond the basics, I also prioritize teaching colloquialisms and reducing accents for those interested in sounding more natural and fluent in their speech. For students who are looking to improve their business English skills, I provide specialized lessons that focus on industry-specific language and terminology. Throughout my classes, I strive to create a positive and engaging learning environment. I encourage my students to participate actively, ask questions, and practice what they've learned through class discussions and exercises. Ultimately, my aim is to help students develop a lifelong love for the English language and the confidence to communicate effectively in any situation.

Business English Lessons for Effective Business Communication (online/offline)
Apart from general English language learning, this type of classes will focus more on English business vocabulary, business writing, business conversation and listening comprehension. This class would be suitable for people who plan (or already do) to study business/economics, want to enhance business skills for the business trips/clients, want to communicate and network effectively with international people in English. For this class I will use several books as materials (popular editions) dedicated to Business English growth. I will involve much conversational practice and discussion activities of specific topics. The material (books, texts, exercises) will be shared with a student. All the classes and preparation for them will be adapted to each student individually. Feel free to contact me for questions or book a time slot for a class.

Learn to confidently speak English - lessons can be in French, Urdu and Hindi
As someone who can speak 5 languages fluently, I have over the years grasped the best way to efficiently learn new languages. I have experience working in 2 primary schools, where I had the opportunity to observe other teachers and learn from good practice. Being a firm believer that everyone has a different way of learning, I will urge students to let me know in advance their desired way of learning so I can prepare curated lessons just for them to make the most of our lectures. As a future lawyer, I have experience in advocacy, mooting, public speak and will work towards making students feel comfortable in speaking English.
