I hold a BA (Hons) in English Literature from Durham University and a Master's in English (1700-1830) from the University of Oxford. I firmly believe that developing a pupil's confidence in themselves, as well as their ideas, can have a huge positive impact on their final grade. I pride myself on my friendly and encouraging approach and am always willing to go as slowly as a pupil needs, whilst still challenging them to hit their target grade. I have been a personal tutor for four years, beginning as an undergraduate on my university's Student Community Action scheme. I have relished the challenge of helping a variety of students, each with unique needs and concerns. All my tutees have done exceptionally well and have pushed up grade boundaries to achieve fantastic final grades. Last year, I was particularly excited to hear that one tutee advanced from a C to an A* at English Language A Level, the first in the history of his school!
