English Literature and Language tutor for KS3/GCSE/A-Level

Understanding what makes a powerful and effective essay is a key part of writing and nailing those exams up ahead. My lessons will involve reviewing my student's writing and working together to find elements that need improvement. We will focus on essay planning, cohesiveness, originality, and exam technique. My sessions will not be lectures and require active participation and effort from myself and my student. If needed, I will set small amounts of homework to encourage even more progress.

During my final years in school, I was responsible for leading tutoring sessions for younger year groups, and provided one-on-one tutoring for several of my A-Level classmates. I also achieved the top mark in the world for OxfordAQA English Literature in my 2023 A-Levels.
