An experienced GCSE examiner and qualified teacher - excellent results
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I am an English Language GCSE examiner and an English language and literature teacher. As a fully qualified English teacher - PGCE in Secondary English and QTS status - I am in a good position to support students with my knowledge and experience of the curriculum at KS3 and KS4. As a GCSE examiner - English language - I believe I am able to pass on this experience to help benefit students in their exam preparation.
I have worked as an English teacher in secondary schools for over 10 years. I have taught the majority of the literature texts for GCSE and I am familiar with the poetry anthologies used by the various exam boards. I regularly work with AQA, Eduqas and IGCSE exam boards.
Working as a private tutor for over eight years has been a great experience; I am always delighted when students are able to develop their confidence and improve their grades.
English is a subject that requires the ability to explore and expand on personal responses in both language and literature exams; students should feel involved and confident in the tutoring sessions.
I often work on exam skills practice as I believe this to be the most beneficial approach for students in KS4. I also work with younger students in KS3 to support them with schoolwork and to build confidence and enjoyment. One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is seeing students develop their confidence and improve their grades.
