I am a qualified, passionate English teacher with a First Class degree and eight years of teaching experience. My goal is to help all learners engage with English, in all its forms, so they can apply a range of skills confidently.

I have experience teaching Key Stage 3 and 4 for both English Language and Literature and I have taught AS English Language to Key Stage 5. Currently, I work in a school for children with special educational needs, but before this I worked in a mainstream setting. I have worked with young people dealing with dyslexia, anxiety and autism as well as students aiming for grades 8 and 9, but who are struggling to meet exam criteria. Many students I have taught or tutored have had low self esteem or a sheer lack of interest in English. I have a range of strategies to encourage you to move forwards and overcome any kind of barrier to learning.

I have tutored students face to face and online through Tutorhub before and I found it extremely rewarding to watch the progress made by working on a one to one basis. Furthermore, I have worked as an examiner for AQA for 2 years (marking both the old and the new exam papers). As a result, I have a deep understanding of new specifications, exam mark schemes and how to apply the necessary skills securely. Last exam season, I assisted students taking exams for a range of exam boards as well as AQA and I can adapt to your needs accordingly.

Many young people have difficulties with tricky areas such as grammar and analysis of texts. These are my specialty and I have plenty of resources to help learners grasp these concepts. Equally, I can help build foundations for students at Key Stage 3 who are struggling with basics or who want to prepare for their GCSEs in advance.
