    English Literature and Language for GCSE and A-Level

    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.

    About Me

    I have so far accumulated over 1000 hours of teaching experience; I taught Drama at a secondary school after completing my A-Levels, and later, whilst reading for an English Literature degree at Cambridge University, I taught English to a wide breadth of students, ranging from those studying at University, pupils preparing to take GCSE, IGCSE and A-level exams, to professionals seeking to improve their communication skills. My academic interests include Shakespeare, theories of Poetry Analysis and Modernist French Literature.

    Online International School Teacher - IGCSE, A-Level, AP, IB MYP/DP, etc. English, Philosophy, Business, History, Sociology, Humanities +
    I am a UK-qualified teacher with a decade of experience teaching and leading at some of the best international schools around the world - Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. My work teaching and leading departments in schools included curriculum planning and design, assessing & tracking hundreds of students, supporting student university applications, and implementation of additional measures for students with specific learning support needs. I believe that education is most effective as an interesting, constructive and engaging discussion between student, class and teacher; enjoyable and stimulating, rather than stressful and pressure-laden. I keep my classes light and relevant, while also maintaining high standards for students to build their expectations for themselves. I am CELTA-qualified and my experiences teaching non-native English around the world have helped me understand the challenges faced by students studying subjects in their second- or third- language. If you're having some challenges with your studies, please feel free to reach out to me and we can talk about your needs and a plan. All my classes are online.

    Albanian Tuition for English Speaking Students by an Albanian Native speaker
    I am a native Albanian speaker that will be able to teach you everything you want to know, boost your confidence and help you with your accent in Albanian at all levels. Albanian grammar can be very tricky and hard, but together we will make it as easy as possible! I started teaching in Albanian about 3 years ago and I also do a part-time translation job. In addition, I always offer help to translate from English to Albanian or vice versa to Albanian family and friends. Most of my students are Albanian children that are raised in the UK and do not speak Albanian fluently, so their parents make sure to contact me, so I can teach them and I have had amazing results! In addition, partners of Albanian natives contact me, so they can communicate better with their spouse and the rest of the spouse's family, or even try to slowly - slowly teach their newborn children!
