Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a very experienced and fully qualified English teacher and former examiner. Over the last 20 years, I have taught in the classroom, online and as a face-to-face tutor. I have taught from as young as Yr5 to undergraduate and adult level.

What do you specialise in?

Examiner for AQA for 10 years Teacher of GCSE and A level English Language and/or literature for 19 years - experience of all exam boards. Teacher of KS3 English for 6 years PhD in English Literature Can mentor and advise degree or MA students writing dissertations Can advise all students on effective study skills

How do your lessons usually plan out?

I tailor my lessons closely according to my individual's student's needs. We agree an objective and I try a range of methods to help the student improve in areas of weakness. There is an element of assessment so the student and I can both see what progress has been made.

When did you first start tutoring?

About 25 years ago.

What do you love most about teaching your subject?

English - like all other languages - is an amazing thing; it tells us amazing stories about where the human race has been and where it is going. Literature is an expression of human beings' spirit and imagination and is always interesting because of this.
