I am an English teacher and tutor, with over 15 years teaching and tutoring experience, particularly in preparing students for success in GCSE and A-level English Language and Literature. I have taught in 11-18 secondary schools, a sixth form college, an FE college and in independent schools, where I have coached IB and ESL learners. I am an A-level English Literature examiner, having taught both A-level English Literature and A-level English Language extensively.
Currently, all my tutoring is done online. I use Microsoft Teams, or Google Meet and Google Classroom to teach my students, depending on the learner's preference. These platforms enable us to chat face to face via video link and give me the ability to share my screen and whiteboard. On Google Classroom, I set homework or assignments, providing my students with feedback and additional resources they would not usually receive with a regular tutoring session. Each student will have their own login for Google Classroom and resources will be tailored and personal to them.
Many of my students work on developing their knowledge, skills and confidence for GCSE and A-level English Language and Literature. I also teach exam preparation and intensive revision sessions during exam periods. I plan short or long-term courses to meet with students’ needs.

I can improve and consolidate the learning of students - both children and adults - studying English, English Literature, English as an Additional Language and am competent with all levels, from children experiencing difficulties with grammar and spelling, through gifted and talented students who need extension tasks or preparation for formal exams, through to business English for adults. I support classroom or curricula topics and assignments; help with homework, projects, test preparation, papers, research and other academic tasks. I have a proven record of working with students to help them understand key concepts and which then help them to demonstrate these skills in assessments and examination. I inspire students of all ages to improve academic performance, including study strategies, note-taking skills and approaches to answering test questions. I will carry out assessments and practice tests to track progress, identify areas of improvement and help set goals for exam preparation. All previous tutees and their parents are extremely happy with the sessions and the results.
