Tutor's Experience


I am a full time English Literature tutor specialising in exam preparation and revision for GCSE, O-Level, HSC, IB and A-Level. I also run courses on poetry analysis. Recent student successes include: A* at GCSE, A at A-Level, A1 in Poetry, 80% for HSC mock exam and 80% for Secondary level coursework.


Drama: The Duchess of Malfi; Romeo & Juliet; Othello; A Streetcar Named Desire; An Inspector Calls; The Winslow Boy and Journey's End.

Novels: Of Mice and Men; The Age of Innocence; The Awakening; Great Expectations; Jane Eyre; Mansfield Park; Lord of the Flies; Ethan Frome; The Handmaid's Tale and Haroun and the Sea of Stories.

Poetry: William Shakespeare; Robert Browning; Peter Skrzynecki; Sylvia Plath; Carol Ann Duffy and Simon Armitage.


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. As an English Literature and General Studies examiner for the OCR exam board, I have an understanding of mark schemes and how to get the best results in coursework and examinations. For each examination text (see above), I have written a detailed study guide covering the plot, characters, themes and context. The study guide ensures that the student has a firm understanding of the text and can undertake analysis with confidence.

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