 My Experience:

2021/2022 GCSE & A level results (English Language- Literature): 9-9, 9-9, 9, 8-8 | 2023 results (A-Level): A*, A*, A

◾ Classics MA graduate from the University of Edinburgh, passionate about the arts and the humanities with a Masters from King's College London.

◾ I was very fortunate to have been taught in Edinburgh by fantastic professors and want to share this knowledge and inspiration with others. I have taught pupils privately and in tutoring programs collaborating with schools since 2016 and over the past 6 years have delivered over 4,500 classes, helping them earn a place at the universities of their choice.

I can assist pupils preparing for their GCSEs, A-levels (AQA, CIE, OCR, Edexcel and EDUQAS exam boards) and IELTS examinations.

Provided that students follow all the instructions, they will see marked improvement after our first 10 lessons together. The lesson structure consists of:

◾ 15' of a powerpoint presentation on the topic in focus: I present separate presentations on each topic and question of the exam paper.

◾ Extended task: a skills-focused or pastpaper exercise, followed by detailed oral and written feedback.

◾ Summary quiz at the end of the class.

For my pupils, I also offer the following:

◾ Personalised lesson timetable: To make sure we are strategic in our approach and prioritise all the key skills

◾ No extra charge for homework marking: This is free. I do not ask pupils to book a Marking Time session

◾ Free resources: After each class I send you the presentations and bonus documents for your revision

◾ Monthly progression report: To help you organise your studies and to show you how far you have progressed

◾ Vocabulary booklets: To get you to improve your use of academic phraseology

Yet, all the above are most effective when personalised to the needs of each pupil. Hence, I encourage you to let me know of your interests, preferences and concerns by booking a free meeting with me first.
