I am a London-born, Masters-educated and trained English teacher with 4 years of experience in three different countries and with all age groups and abilities. Students have praised me for my deeply personal and passionate teaching style. I firmly believe that interest and enjoyment go hand-in-hand with effective learning, and so I make it my priority to sympathise with my students' needs and stimulate engagement with the subject. I do the latter by using a wide variety of exercises, activities and lesson types. I have an excellent track-record of helping students succeed in school and university assessments, national curriculum examinations, language competency tests (IELTS and Cambridge), and CEFR language courses. I have taught English extensively to adults (ranging from corporate professionals to actors), students (including GCSE, A-Level and Degree level) and children (including a full academic year at an International School). My offering also includes music theory and practice (specialising in piano and voice), as well as Film Studies - my own University degree. I look forward to meeting you, discussing your needs and interests, and empowering you in your chosen field.

A-Level English Course Breakdown

The current A-level English course is primarily assessed via written exams, with some of the exam boards omitting coursework entirely for either English Language, English literature or both. While different exam boards have slight variations in courses and materials, there are a number of commonalities between A-level English Literature and A-level English Language courses that exist across exam boards.

A-level English Literature - In the English Literature A-level, students will be expected to study some Shakespearean works, some poetry, and a range of texts from within either a specific time period (such as post 19th century) or a specific genre (such as gothic literature). The exams and any coursework will focus on assessing a students ability to understand, analyse and compare texts, with some exam boards offering a chance for students to explore creative writing in a similar style to the texts they have studied. The A-level English Literature texts are complex with students being expected to consider the context, message, and alternative interpretations of texts as part of their analysis and critique. Tutor House tutors are qualified and experienced in teaching A-Level English Literature for all the main exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC. Tutors are experts on the A-level texts and helping students to develop the analytical, interpretation and writing skills needed to obtain top grades.
A-Level English Language - In the English Language A-level, students are expected to demonstrate understanding and use of various methods of language analysis while exploring the English language in a variety of contexts. Although the specific texts and sources differ across exam boards, all English A-level courses include the study of children’s language development, how the English language is used by different forces such as the media, the diversity and evolution of the English language, and different language discourses. Students are also given the opportunity to develop their writing skills and are expected to demonstrate both their ability to undertake original investigations in the field of English language study and write creatively. While each exam board has created a unique syllabus, the primary themes remain the same. All Tutor House A-level English Language tutors are experienced in teaching the materials from all the major UK exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC. With a private English Language tutor, you can master the skills required to get the best grade possible for this important A-level.

Benefits of studying English at A-Level

A level English is a truly fascinating subject to study, offering students the chance to broaden their understanding whilst developing the skills they need to express themselves creatively. Whether you choose to study English Literature or English Language, you will learn how to critically appraise texts, develop your imagination and enhance your communication skills. While English Literature and English Language A-levels are a critical requirement for a number of courses at top universities, the benefits of studying English A-level go beyond further education, providing a framework for you to develop the knowledge and skills needed to excel in all areas of work and life after school.

Skills - A-Level English courses are both challenging and rewarding. The syllabus requires students to engage with a number of texts and discourses that vary greatly in form and content, teaching them to develop critical and creative thinking as well as improving their writing ability across forms. The A-level course introduces more complex texts as well as nuanced ideas and theories that will push students to approach reading and writing in new, more detailed and more intricate ways.

Students will also develop valuable skills such as analytical thinking, creativity and excellent written and oral communication. These skills are sought out not just by universities but by employers too. As a result, studying English at A-level is a sound investment of your time and effort regardless of your higher education goals.
Universities - Successfully studying English at A-Level can lead to a place on an English degree course at some top universities, which fairly poses the question “why should you do an English degree?”. Studying English at degree level requires graduates to further develop a number of critical skills that are highly attractive to employers, including analytical thinking, creativity, communication via various mediums and fantastic research skills. By completing an English degree you make yourself a prime candidate for roles in a number of professions.

A-level English is also critical or highly desirable qualification for students wishing to get onto a number of other degree courses. Students looking to study History, Psychology, Politics and even economics or business studies will find an English A-level, whether English Language, English Literature or English Language and Literature, a huge boost to their UCAS application - as long as they get a good grade.

Top UK Universities to study an English degree:
  • Durham
  • St Andrews
  • Cambridge
  • Oxford
  • University College London
  • Careers - English competency is a vital skill whether you are looking to work in the UK or overseas. As an international language spoken across the world, the language of business and commerce across the globe, and of course the mother-tongue of the UK, the skills developed during A-Level will provide invaluable to students throughout their academic career and beyond. The English A-level (Language, Literature or both) qualification holds great authority in the career market, whether or not a student goes on to study English at degree level. Many employers at every level of the jobs market will look for an English A-Level qualification in order to ensure a candidate has the necessary knowledge, communication skills and analytical abilities.

    Students that do go on to use their English A-level qualification to study English at University will come out with one of the most versatile degree qualifications, opening up career opportunities across fields and industries.

    A

    Once you have found tutors which fit your criteria you can send an enquiry to them straight away. You’ll need to register with Tutor House before you can contact tutors (this is to order to ensure that you are protected by our Cancellation Policy and Refund Policy). To send an enquiry to your selected tutor(s) add them to your enquiry list and confirm by pressing the button at the bottom of the page. If you are a new user you will then be asked to register. If you are a returning user you will be prompted to sign into your account. Once signed in you will need to fill out your enquiry details and teaching requirements before sending your message to your selected tutors. After the enquiry has been sent we will contact you within 48 hours. If your tutor of choice has not replied within this time we will either contact them on your behalf or put you in touch with another of our highly experienced tutors.

    A

    By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.

    A

    Once you have made the lesson request, you can communicate with the tutor. You can discuss your tuition requirements and the lesson timing with in-app instant messaging. The messaging is instant, so your tutor will receive the notification via both; the website and email. Hence he or she can respond to immediately. You may wish to discuss your preferred lesson time and date, or discuss which exam board you’re studying for A-levels and GCSE’s, or even to discuss specific text and books which you are currently studying. Also, You can communicate with the tutor with the instant in-app messaging at any point (before or after the booking has been made). Please note that it is possible for you and the tutor to mutually agree to booking changes after this stage. This must be done within the messenger app on the website. You can also use the same means of comunication to find out more about the tutor, after you have requested a booking. In addition to this you can always check the tutors reviews and ranking.

    A

    Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.

    A

    Yes, we do take a fee, but at a fraction of the rate which other companies charge. We don’t have a sign up fee for new customers, we don’t charge an introduction fee, and we don’t charge administration fees. However, we do charge a small commission which pays for the security of tutors (we meet all tutors, check their DBS certificates and ensure they are who they say there are), and the maintenance of the site. If you have any problems using the site, you can always email or call us.

    A

    If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.

    A

    If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

    A

    Booking and paying for private tuition has never been easier! As a customer, you’ll need to add your credit or debt card details to your profile after you sign in. You can pay the tutor directly and securely through the Tutor House website. However, if you do pay outside of the Tutor House site, you will not be protected by our 48 hour Cancelation Policy, nor our Disputes or Refunds Policy, we also do not guarantee that you’ll be protected from fraud. You will then receive a confirmation email notifying you of the hours completed with the tutor. The email will also confirm the date and time that the lesson(s) took place. Payment will be automatically processed by Tutor House’s Payment Service Provider (PSP). We do not charge you a joining fee or an administration fee, instead we allow you to interact with your chosen tutor directly.

    A-Level English Course Breakdown

    The current A-level English course is primarily assessed via written exams, with some of the exam boards omitting coursework entirely for either English Language, English literature or both. While different exam boards have slight variations in courses and materials, there are a number of commonalities between A-level English Literature and A-level English Language courses that exist across exam boards.

    A-level English Literature - In the English Literature A-level, students will be expected to study some Shakespearean works, some poetry, and a range of texts from within either a specific time period (such as post 19th century) or a specific genre (such as gothic literature). The exams and any coursework will focus on assessing a students ability to understand, analyse and compare texts, with some exam boards offering a chance for students to explore creative writing in a similar style to the texts they have studied. The A-level English Literature texts are complex with students being expected to consider the context, message, and alternative interpretations of texts as part of their analysis and critique. Tutor House tutors are qualified and experienced in teaching A-Level English Literature for all the main exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC. Tutors are experts on the A-level texts and helping students to develop the analytical, interpretation and writing skills needed to obtain top grades.
    A-Level English Language - In the English Language A-level, students are expected to demonstrate understanding and use of various methods of language analysis while exploring the English language in a variety of contexts. Although the specific texts and sources differ across exam boards, all English A-level courses include the study of children’s language development, how the English language is used by different forces such as the media, the diversity and evolution of the English language, and different language discourses. Students are also given the opportunity to develop their writing skills and are expected to demonstrate both their ability to undertake original investigations in the field of English language study and write creatively. While each exam board has created a unique syllabus, the primary themes remain the same. All Tutor House A-level English Language tutors are experienced in teaching the materials from all the major UK exam boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC. With a private English Language tutor, you can master the skills required to get the best grade possible for this important A-level.

    By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.

    A

    Once you have made the lesson request, you can communicate with the tutor. You can discuss your tuition requirements and the lesson timing with in-app instant messaging. The messaging is instant, so your tutor will receive the notification via both; the website and email. Hence he or she can respond to immediately. You may wish to discuss your preferred lesson time and date, or discuss which exam board you’re studying for A-levels and GCSE’s, or even to discuss specific text and books which you are currently studying. Also, You can communicate with the tutor with the instant in-app messaging at any point (before or after the booking has been made). Please note that it is possible for you and the tutor to mutually agree to booking changes after this stage. This must be done within the messenger app on the website. You can also use the same means of comunication to find out more about the tutor, after you have requested a booking. In addition to this you can always check the tutors reviews and ranking.

    Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.

    Yes, we do take a fee, but at a fraction of the rate which other companies charge. We don’t have a sign up fee for new customers, we don’t charge an introduction fee, and we don’t charge administration fees. However, we do charge a small commission which pays for the security of tutors (we meet all tutors, check their DBS certificates and ensure they are who they say there are), and the maintenance of the site. If you have any problems using the site, you can always email or call us.

    If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.

    A

    If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.
