I am a committed and enthusiastic tutor in English Literature and I am seeking to work with students at GCSE, A-Level, and Undergraduate level.
I have a lifelong passion for the written word. Ever since studying Shakespeare at GCSE level, I fell in love with the subject and pursued English throughout my University career. I also dabble in creative writing, in particular poetry, fiction, and screenplay writing.
I have a BA (Hons), MA, and PhD in English from the University of Oxford.
I tutored Undergraduate students in English during my doctoral studies. The teaching consisted of one to one and small group sessions. I am currently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire and have extensive experience of online tutoring in both one to one and small group settings.
I am also a certified practitioner of coaching and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, enabling me to offer additional support for students who may need help with increasing their confidence, overcoming self-limiting beliefs, and managing their mental health.
My knowledge of the curricula and examination expectations is up to date and I can help students with their set texts, exam preparation, and essay writing/coursework.
My lessons & teaching style
My approach is student-focussed, paying strict attention to their specific needs and goals. I believe in conducting myself with integrity, professionalism, and equitability at all times.
Initially, I consult with each student on what their learning needs and objectives are, and then strategically design a lesson/tutorial plan to meet those needs and objectives.
