My tutoring approach
One to one tuition is an alternative to the normal classroom experience and can help to personalise learning, develop confidence and enhance key skills.
I provide one to one tuition in Secondary English & English Literature at Key Stage 3 and GCSE.
All tutoring is specifically tailored to meet the needs of the individual to determine strengths, weaknesses and to set targets to progress. Lessons are interesting and engaging, ensuring that students develop the skills to become confident and independent learners. A variety of activities and resources are used including written exercises, reading responses, controlled assessment preparation and practice exams to encourage attainment.
Tutoring experience: 15+ years
I am a fully qualified, enhanced CRB checked, secondary school teacher of English with 15 years of experience in both teaching and private tutoring.
I teach English & English Literature at Key Stage 3, GCSE, iGCSE and A level, as well as Functional Skills English.
I am also an examiner for the main UK exam boards, including Edexcel, AQA, WJEC and Cambridge, examining both English and English Literature GCSE, iGCSE, Functional Skills English and AS Level. This gives me a clear understanding of the expectations of exam boards and exam papers.

Have a look at what other people are saying about me...
Rachel was an incredible tutor and helped me so much in preperation for my exam. She made sure I understood everything before moving on and explained things in detail and made it easy to understand. I went into the exam with so much confidence and came out knowing that I did really well. The lessons not only helped me prepare for my exam...but also for all my english lessons and tests in the future. I learned so much from her and have improved all my writing techniques and know how to answer questions in detail and set them out properly. I am so thankful for her help and would recommend her to anyone.
The tutoring is proving to be invaluable to my son. He is becoming much more confident and hopefully this will lead to a great result in August.
Rachel is a very conscientious and paitent tutor who really gets to the point of the lesson. She has made me feel much more confident in myself and ready for my controlled assessment. This is after just 1 lesson! I am really looking foward to my next lessons with Rachel!
