Experienced GCSE English Language and Literature Teacher & Tutor

I have 6 years of experience with tutoring KS2, KS3 and KS4 pupils for SATS, 11+, private school entrance exams and GCSEs. I am also an ambassador of the prestigious Teach First programme and have been teaching GCSE English at a school in South London for two years now. I read English at a top-tier UK university (King's College London) and gained an 'Outstanding' in my PGCE from UCL. In my first year of teaching, 100% of my pupils attained a Level 6 or above in their GCSEs, and 6 of my pupils attained a Level 9 (A**). In my younger tutees, I have successfully tutored pupils for entrance exams at Dulwich College and Whitgift. My specialism is improving literacy scores for pupils who struggle to read at a high level.

Bethany is an exceptional tutor. I have really struggled to get my son engaged in reading, and his teachers say this has been detrimental to his vocabulary and written communication. After 6 months with Bethany, he reads independently and even looks forward to his reading lessons! I'm over the moon.
