Enthusiastic tutor for English Lang/Lit at all levels

I've just graduated with First-Class Honours in English from Trinity College, Cambridge University. I tutor in all levels of English, Drama, and up to A-Level Drama and Philosophy. I am able to tutor both in person and online. I aim to strike a balance between engaging, personal commitment to making the student see and realise a passion for reading and writing, alongside the necessity of navigating exam strictures and requirements - without making them seem restrictive or off-putting. I very much have enjoyed my experiences with small-group, Cambridge "supervision"-style teaching to students on various theatre tours that I have done during my time at Cambridge and this led me into thinking that similar, informal one-on-one teaching would be similarly rewarding.

Tutoring Experience (120 hours taught)

I have tutored around 10 students in the past two years, at all levels from 7+ to A-Level, and in exam boards from AQA to the UKISET for international students. I have taught both English and international students, and so am familiar with the varieties of difficulty that students can encounter and a variety of approaches for addressing them. I enjoy re-examining the elementals of the subject through tutoring. My students have all registered often substantial improvements and I continue to be asked back by different families if they feel they need a boost. I'm happy to provide references from students and parents.
