I teach GCSE English Lit and Lang. I'm interested in improving your English GCSE results by at least 2 grades. I currently teach in a secondary academy.

Methodology

Hello, I'm Miss Clarke, a very jolly English teacher. If you want some help with the new style English GCSE, with AQA (they're the most popular exam board), then I might well be able to help. I cover both English Language and Literature courses, but I'm also happy to do early intervention work with pupils who aren't yet ready for GCSE.

I only tutor in a public place like a coffee shop (despite what it may say on the profile page). If the tutee is a child, parents are welcome to stay for the session if they wish. Sessions last for an hour, but you can book half sessions that last for 30 minutes. In tutoring sessions I will usually be going over your work that I've marked and helping you improve it. If you are going to struggle with the self discipline it takes to do homework (I think most people do sometimes), then it might be worth booking hour long sessions, so we can go through the essay writing process together in real time.

My technique is very simple. I show you multiple models of the type of work you need to produce, then get you to practice the key skills individually before attempting to combine them in expert essays. The English Literature texts I currently teach are the following: 'An Inspector Calls', 'A Christmas Carol', and 'Romeo and Juliet'. I can provide resources for English Language which is a bit more obscure. It often involves analysing texts from the 19th century.

Background

I'm a secondary English teacher, so this kind of work is what I do every single day. I'm used to seeing people make significant progress in my lessons. English often seems like a mystery if no one has ever clearly taught you how to write an essay, but English exams are actually rather mechanical. There are rules that you have to learn to do well; learn the rules, ace the exams.
