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.

Professional experience

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.


  • I have a BA Hons in English with Education Studies, a PGCE qualification in English and a Masters Degree in Education.
