I have a relaxed demeanour but a very strong work ethic. I put considerable effort into my lesson preparation so that the tutoring sessions are valuable and enjoyable. I hope to build on the student's existing knowledge to achieve their full potential.  I am of course guided by the needs of each student but, as a marker for the OCR exam board, I have an understanding of mark schemes and how to get the best results in coursework and examinations. I know how important it is for students to display an understanding of context, an awareness of critical responses and an ability to analyse language.  This all sounds rather dry, but I hope that my delivery will be creative and thought-provoking.  I use tailor-made exercises, plenary sessions and essay planning to hone these skills. In advance of each session, I prepare my own worksheets, quizzes, revision guides and annotated excerpts from the text to consolidate the learning process.

I strive to provide exceptional value for money and am happy to be contacted by the student out of hours and at no additional cost, with any questions. I am also happy to receive essay plans and essays by email and revert to students will full comments and suggestions for improvement.
