GCSE and Advanced Level English Language
GCSE and Advanced Level English Literature
Price and Range:
I teach for at least an hour and prices are per session.
Prices depend on whether travel is involved and the level of the student.
Generally prices are between £25:00 and £35:00 per session.
Prices are negotiable depending on circumstances.
Using my years of experience as both an English teacher and an examiner I guide the student to forensically examine the requirements of the Awarding Bodies (Exam Boards) looking closely at the specification's Assessment Objectives. The Assessment Objectives are important as they form the basis on which the examiners mark the students' exam scripts. This process has the effect of focussing the student on what they need to do in order to succeed.
As a tutor I use the Awarding Body's Assessment Objectives as a basis for tuition and students soon learn to address any of their assignments to the Assessment Objectives; they learn to think like an examiner.
In English Literature the student is guided to recognise that the key to success is not only to understand the story but how the story is written and what were the motivations of the author, and the events in the society that the author lived through. This approach meets the demands of the Assessment Objectives of all of the specifications at both GCSE, iGCSE and Advanced Level.
My practice is completely transparent to the families it is my privilege to meet. I recognise the stress that they are under in wishing their children to reach their potential in an increasingly competitive world.
As well as teaching GCSE, iGCSE and Advanced Level English I also help those students whose families have English as an additional language. Schools are often hard pressed to address the needs of these students.
I hope that I always come across as approachable, I am always clear in what I am doing and the reasons I am adopting a particular method. Parents are given updates regularly in writing about their child's progress.
As a parent myself I recognise the need to put the student's needs first.
I teach in a way that I would have liked to have been taught myself.
