English Language and Literature student

Hi, I am a trained Teaching Assistant and freelance tutor educated to Degree level with a BA in English Literature. I will enable you to gain a full and clear understanding of the texts you are working on and teach you to create and expand detailed ideas into A* answers. Dependant on the needs of the pupil I have found different ways of expressing how to avoid common mistakes made when analysing texts. In order to understand your mistakes you have to make them to avoid making the same mistakes when you tackle the next question, resilience is key, mistakes are a part of learning. I will help by exploring the mark schemes attached to the exam board and explain to you how to write a good critical piece of work using a small excerpt from whichever area in English you are focusing.

Tutoring Experience

I have been working as a tutor for the past five years. I have experience working with Key Stage 1/2 and also extensive experience with students in Key Stage 3/4. As a tutor it is important to gain a full understanding of the subjects that your pupil is finding difficult to best help them enhance their abilities tackling the questions at hand. As a Teaching Assistant I have been placed with many pupils across various London Primary and Secondary Schools. I was paired with pupils who needed extra support to keep them on task and ensure that they understood everything they needed to within the lesson. I also have experience working with adults to help better their understanding of Literature and also Language. Working freelance has opened me up to a variety of opportunities offering me the chance to enhance my skill set as a teacher and tutor.
