Whether you prefer group sessions or a private tutorial my aim is to make your learning as interesting and as rewarding as possible. I prefer to work in a relatively relaxed environment where students feel comfortable enough to ask questions no matter how trivial they may seem at the time.
Dialogue is an important tool for learning in this subject and I want every student to feel free to be able to explore all possibilities. At the same time, I want students to be able to make the significant improvements to their learning through focused hard work that will ensure they achieve their true potential.
Group English Tuition
I have an office in Knowle, Solihull that can cater for up to six students. GCSE English Language examinations lend themselves beautifully to small group work.
There are sessions covering: Nineteenth Century Fiction, Non-Fiction Nineteenth Century & Modern Non-Fiction. Transactional Writing and Creative/Imaginative Writing.
Each session will last for one hour and will focus on the skills you need to enable you to analyse, evaluate and compare texts. Furthermore, we will ensure that you completely understand the focus of each question on the examination papers and have the confidence and ability to tackle each one with complete clarity and achieve those top bands.
Individual English Tuition
If you would prefer tuition on a 1:1 basis then that is no problem. Courses will be tailored to your specific needs; whether that is focusing on English Language or English Literature that is entirely up to you.
Sessions run for one hour and will take place in your own home. I will bring all resources with me, all I ask is that there is somewhere fairly quiet to work together and you are at home on time for the tutorial to begin.
