I have taught English in South Yorkshire secondary schools and colleges for over twenty years having qualified as a teacher at Leeds University. I have also worked as a private tutor for a number of years and offer tailored and well planned lessons that suit the needs of my students. I also write text books and online materials for the popular York Notes study guides and have a Master's Degree in Educational Studies. I have many years experience of examining GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature and A Level English for AQA and OCR so i can provide expert advice about how to approach exams, how to structure answers, how to respond to unseen texts and how to improve your writing, all linked to the assessment objectives and markschemes. I can prepare practice papers and guide you through planning and writing answers. I am patient and understanding and am able to explain things clearly and carefully. I am also an experienced and enthusiastic A Level English teacher, and can offer support with examination practice on topics such as child language acquisition, investigations, original writing, language analysis and grammar. I currently examine A Level English Literature and can support the study of modern and pre-twentieth century texts, poetry and Shakespeare.
