Hello everybody. I am a qualified English teacher with 9 years experience teaching in UK schools. I have a thorough understanding of assessment criteria and the curriculum, including AQA, OCR and Edexcel and am able to provide challenging and tailored tasks to pupils of all abilities that will directly and promptly improve their attainment in the classroom. I take pride in my work and enjoy motivating my students to make progress by writing compelling texts and analysing texts in a sophisticated way.

I have tutored pupils ranging from 11-18. My lesson resources are differentiated to enable all abilities to access the learning material. All of my students have made between 1-2 grades of progress in a term, quickly and securely, achieving high pass rates at GCSE regardless of their starting grade. I explain all tasks in relation to mark schemes so pupils are able to self assess confidently in the same way as examiners with each piece of work they do. My strategy is to work closely with the classroom material by filling in the gaps of learning that can not be provided in school and supplementing their learning so that pupils always acquire new information that will strengthen their prior knowledge.
