I have recently finished at Middlesex University where I undertook a 3-year Bachelor's degree in Psychology with Education. Over the course of my degree, I have grasped knowledge regarding the basic and complex needs of children in regard to learning. I am able to tutor English, Sociology, and Maths and I am currently an After School Nanny who assists with homework on most evenings. I also have experience working with children with Special Education Needs and have often administered support to them in the past. As an aspiring psychologist, I believe it is pivotal to have exceptional communication and social skills in everything I do. I am always eager to acquire new skills and gain experience that could benefit myself and others and prepare the foundations for my desired career path. I believe that I am conscientious, motivated and committed to achieving my goals. I am seen by others as a responsible and positive role model. I believe that I am a suitable tutor as I am approachable and motivated towards attaining my goals.

Approved English Language Teacher

Hello! I am a London born writer and teacher. I teach English at Goldsmiths College, University of London and I tutor young people and adults in all humanities subjects. I love to help students of all ages to engage with literature and succeed in exams at all levels. I have a background in English Language teaching, having taught EFL for four years, and am currently an Academic English Lecturer, private tutor and teacher of Creative and Business Writing. If you're looking to improve grades, learn how to enjoy study, or books - get in touch! I have a background in Sociology, so I've coached A level and GCSE students through this subject in my private tuition. I also have a 1st class honours degree in English Langauge and Literature and would be a great tutor for anyone who wants to improve their KS 3+, GCSE or A-level grades at this level. I am completing a Masters in English and Creative Writing and Goldsmiths College, and many of my students are adults who just want to explore texts or writing at a deeper level. Because of my background in EFL, I'm an expert in the English language and run monthly clubs for speakers of other languages who want to improve their speaking, reading, listening or writing. Over my in-school career, I've taught Sociology, Philosophy, English Literature and Language, EFL, Academic English, and study skills from ages 16 to 60, from secondary to PhD level, and I'm very proud of my 100% success rate! I take a very student-centred approach. I like to find a way into the topic that interests my student. For example, last week I taught my adult pre-masters English students how to speed read through a text on amateur journalism. This summer I taught Lacanian philosophical theory to first year BA students via comics. Last month, in a 121 lesson my student and went to the library to practice speaking English, and yesterday I taught a 7-year-old how to write a poem by looking at the food in her cupboard. What I do is so varied, I tend to be led by the student's goals. What exams are coming up, and when? What are the current strengths and concerns? How confident is the student in their aims? Finally, how can I realistically bridge the gap between the knowledge the student has and the knowledge they need?

Why hire a Cambridge Pre-U English tutor?

The Pre-U Literature in English course is an equivalent to the English A-level courses and is becoming increasingly esteemed in the eyes of Universities and employers alike. Pre-U Literature in English promotes both broad and in-depth reading of literary texts, with students expected to develop critical, informed and insightful responses to texts taking into account factors such as context, genre and purpose. Students will study a wide range of texts, some of which are set texts and others that are selected by either the student or the teacher. This creates a good balance between structured education, fair assessment, and enabling students to pursue their own literary interests.

Pre-U English is distinct from other qualifications of this level in that it is specifically designed to prepare students for University. The course expects students to reach high levels of text analysis and comparison, understand and apply a broad array of literary theories, undertake a large quantity of independent research and produce written content to a very high standard. While success at Pre-U English sets students up for success far into their academic future, it is also a more challenging course for students to attempt. The support of a Pre-U English tutor is therefore vital in ensuring that students not only in attain a critical qualification, but also develop all the skills and knowledge required for success in their further education.

What is the difference between Pre-U and A-Level?

Put simply, Pre-U English differs from A-levels in that is is specifically designed to prepare students for University education. As such, the Pre-U English syllabus more closely mirrors the expectations of University English courses. Students are expected to read both more broadly and in more detail, covering a large quantity of texts that range from prose and poetry to dramatic works, originating from various cultures and periods of history. The course requires students to become adept at a high level of complex analysis, comparing and critiquing texts in the context of their time, culture, genre and form as well as in relation to key literary theories such as feminism, postmodernism and marxism. Students are also expected to undertake a great deal of independent reading and research, demonstrating the kind of initiative and approach to learning that will be expected of them in higher education.

Unlike A-level course, Pre-U English has four separate assessments at the end of two years of study, each examining a different area of the course and set of skills. Pre-U English students will be assessed via a three intense, essay-based exams and an extended personal project. The assessment formats mirror those utilised in English Degree courses and so are designed to encourage students to learn and prepare for University style testing.

Poetry & Prose - The first exam paper focuses on the poetry and prose students have studied over their course. Students have 2 hours to answer two essay questions on two texts. Each question is on a single text and students will be required to answer one question on Poetry they have studied and one on Prose. One of the texts must have been written before 1900 and one after 1900. Each question is worth 25 marks with a total of 50, 25% of the overall grade, available on the entire exam paper. To achieve a top grade, students will need to demonstrate analysis of the texts within their historical and literary context as part of their argument. The exam papers are externally assessed and no texts can be taken into the examination.
Drama - Paper two requires students to answer questions on drama texts, such as plays, they have studied. Students must answer two questions, one essay-based question and one passage based question. Passage based questions ask students to relate a passage from the text to the text as a whole. Each question must be based on a different text, one from Section A and one from Section B. Both the essay and passage-based are worth 25 marks, with a maximum of 50 marks available on the paper, contributing 25% to the overall grade. As with Poetry and Prose, Drama Paper answers should reference the literary and historical context of the text and author, considering how they may have been influenced given the period, culture and literary movements occuring at the time of writing. Such contextual considerations should be made where relevant to the student’s argument in order to gain marks. Students will have 2 hours to complete 2 questions from the exam paper which is then externally marked.
Comment & Analysis - Paper three require students to comment on and analyse a variety of previously unseen texts. Students will need to answer two questions, one compulsory question and their choice of one other question from two options. Over the course of the two questions students will need to answer one comparative question between two texts and cover at least one passage from a minimum of three text and at least one prose, poetry and drama text respectively. One of the texts covered must have been written pre-1800 and non of the authors will have been used for papers 1 or 2. Students will be provided with the names and dates of the authors but are not expected to have any prior knowledge of them. Instead, students will need to demonstrate their awareness of wider cultural, literary and historical influences from the time the text was written and incorporate this knowledge into their analysis of the texts. Success in this exam will rely on students having studied a range of literature from different periods, genres, forms and style, going well beyond the set texts. Each question is worth 25 marks with 50 available in the whole paper, contributing 25% of the overall Pre-U grade. Students will have 2 hours 15 minutes to complete the paper with the additional 15 minutes designed to allow for reading and annotation of the texts.
Personal Investigation - Paper four of the Pre-U English assessment consists of a Personal Investigation undertaken by the student and culminating in a single 3000-3500 word essay. Students will need to come up with their own focus, scope and title for their project, which must be unique to them. The essay must include a significant comparison of two primary texts, in their entirety, written by two different authors of their choosing. Students must also reference at least two additional subsidiary texts in their essay. Chosen texts must have been originally written in English and students cannot use texts they have studied for other exam papers. Students can choose to focus their exploration and comparison of the two texts on genre, theme, period, or an alternative appropriate concept.

This assessment is highly representative to how English Degree courses are assessed, with students expected to work independently and without support from their teacher beyond the initial stages of choosing a focus and title. Students are expected to work in accordance to academic study and research, including references, footnotes and a full bibliography presented in line with academic writing (although these do not count towards the word count). The paper is also designed to enable students to pursue and deepen their understanding of their personal areas of interest through encouraging high level research and requiring students to draw connections between different texts and authors. The Personal Investigation is externally assessed and worth a total of 25 marks, 25% of the Pre-U English grade.

Benefits of studying English at Pre-U

The benefits of completing a Pre-U Literature in English course are bountiful.

Students will develop phenomenal use and understanding of the English language, with the ability to write and interpret a variety of texts from various cultures and time periods.

Critical, analytical and logical thinking will all be developed as will the ability to consider multiple factors and draw connections and comparisons between texts, ideas and information.

Students will also emerge with excellent transferable skills that will ensure they thrive in further education and their future careers. Students will be highly proficient at independent work and study, have excellent research skills, and be able to produce properly referenced, well written and accurately sourced pieces of work.

    Tutoring FAQs

    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.

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).

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).

    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

    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.

    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

    While you think it is faster it elevates your risk and you use lose all the benefits of Tutor House policies. Paying the tutor directly is NOT secure nor protected. If you do pay a tutor outside of the Tutor House website you will not be protected by our 48 Hour Cancelation Policy, our Disputes Policy or our Refund Policy.

If you make any arrangement with a tutor that you were introduced to through Tutor House, outside the online platform, either for tuition or payment, you will have broken our terms and conditions. In this case, neither the tutor or customer (parent or student) will be protected or covered, as mentioned above. For more information about payment please refer to our terms and conditions.

    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.

    Approved English Language Teacher

    Hello! I am a London born writer and teacher. I teach English at Goldsmiths College, University of London and I tutor young people and adults in all humanities subjects. I love to help students of all ages to engage with literature and succeed in exams at all levels. I have a background in English Language teaching, having taught EFL for four years, and am currently an Academic English Lecturer, private tutor and teacher of Creative and Business Writing. If you're looking to improve grades, learn how to enjoy study, or books - get in touch! I have a background in Sociology, so I've coached A level and GCSE students through this subject in my private tuition. I also have a 1st class honours degree in English Langauge and Literature and would be a great tutor for anyone who wants to improve their KS 3+, GCSE or A-level grades at this level. I am completing a Masters in English and Creative Writing and Goldsmiths College, and many of my students are adults who just want to explore texts or writing at a deeper level. Because of my background in EFL, I'm an expert in the English language and run monthly clubs for speakers of other languages who want to improve their speaking, reading, listening or writing. Over my in-school career, I've taught Sociology, Philosophy, English Literature and Language, EFL, Academic English, and study skills from ages 16 to 60, from secondary to PhD level, and I'm very proud of my 100% success rate! I take a very student-centred approach. I like to find a way into the topic that interests my student. For example, last week I taught my adult pre-masters English students how to speed read through a text on amateur journalism. This summer I taught Lacanian philosophical theory to first year BA students via comics. Last month, in a 121 lesson my student and went to the library to practice speaking English, and yesterday I taught a 7-year-old how to write a poem by looking at the food in her cupboard. What I do is so varied, I tend to be led by the student's goals. What exams are coming up, and when? What are the current strengths and concerns? How confident is the student in their aims? Finally, how can I realistically bridge the gap between the knowledge the student has and the knowledge they need?

    Why hire a Cambridge Pre-U English tutor?

    The Pre-U Literature in English course is an equivalent to the English A-level courses and is becoming increasingly esteemed in the eyes of Universities and employers alike. Pre-U Literature in English promotes both broad and in-depth reading of literary texts, with students expected to develop critical, informed and insightful responses to texts taking into account factors such as context, genre and purpose. Students will study a wide range of texts, some of which are set texts and others that are selected by either the student or the teacher. This creates a good balance between structured education, fair assessment, and enabling students to pursue their own literary interests.

    Pre-U English is distinct from other qualifications of this level in that it is specifically designed to prepare students for University. The course expects students to reach high levels of text analysis and comparison, understand and apply a broad array of literary theories, undertake a large quantity of independent research and produce written content to a very high standard. While success at Pre-U English sets students up for success far into their academic future, it is also a more challenging course for students to attempt. The support of a Pre-U English tutor is therefore vital in ensuring that students not only in attain a critical qualification, but also develop all the skills and knowledge required for success in their further education.

    What is the difference between Pre-U and A-Level?

    Put simply, Pre-U English differs from A-levels in that is is specifically designed to prepare students for University education. As such, the Pre-U English syllabus more closely mirrors the expectations of University English courses. Students are expected to read both more broadly and in more detail, covering a large quantity of texts that range from prose and poetry to dramatic works, originating from various cultures and periods of history. The course requires students to become adept at a high level of complex analysis, comparing and critiquing texts in the context of their time, culture, genre and form as well as in relation to key literary theories such as feminism, postmodernism and marxism. Students are also expected to undertake a great deal of independent reading and research, demonstrating the kind of initiative and approach to learning that will be expected of them in higher education.

    Unlike A-level course, Pre-U English has four separate assessments at the end of two years of study, each examining a different area of the course and set of skills. Pre-U English students will be assessed via a three intense, essay-based exams and an extended personal project. The assessment formats mirror those utilised in English Degree courses and so are designed to encourage students to learn and prepare for University style testing.

    Poetry & Prose - The first exam paper focuses on the poetry and prose students have studied over their course. Students have 2 hours to answer two essay questions on two texts. Each question is on a single text and students will be required to answer one question on Poetry they have studied and one on Prose. One of the texts must have been written before 1900 and one after 1900. Each question is worth 25 marks with a total of 50, 25% of the overall grade, available on the entire exam paper. To achieve a top grade, students will need to demonstrate analysis of the texts within their historical and literary context as part of their argument. The exam papers are externally assessed and no texts can be taken into the examination.
    Drama - Paper two requires students to answer questions on drama texts, such as plays, they have studied. Students must answer two questions, one essay-based question and one passage based question. Passage based questions ask students to relate a passage from the text to the text as a whole. Each question must be based on a different text, one from Section A and one from Section B. Both the essay and passage-based are worth 25 marks, with a maximum of 50 marks available on the paper, contributing 25% to the overall grade. As with Poetry and Prose, Drama Paper answers should reference the literary and historical context of the text and author, considering how they may have been influenced given the period, culture and literary movements occuring at the time of writing. Such contextual considerations should be made where relevant to the student’s argument in order to gain marks. Students will have 2 hours to complete 2 questions from the exam paper which is then externally marked.
    Comment & Analysis - Paper three require students to comment on and analyse a variety of previously unseen texts. Students will need to answer two questions, one compulsory question and their choice of one other question from two options. Over the course of the two questions students will need to answer one comparative question between two texts and cover at least one passage from a minimum of three text and at least one prose, poetry and drama text respectively. One of the texts covered must have been written pre-1800 and non of the authors will have been used for papers 1 or 2. Students will be provided with the names and dates of the authors but are not expected to have any prior knowledge of them. Instead, students will need to demonstrate their awareness of wider cultural, literary and historical influences from the time the text was written and incorporate this knowledge into their analysis of the texts. Success in this exam will rely on students having studied a range of literature from different periods, genres, forms and style, going well beyond the set texts. Each question is worth 25 marks with 50 available in the whole paper, contributing 25% of the overall Pre-U grade. Students will have 2 hours 15 minutes to complete the paper with the additional 15 minutes designed to allow for reading and annotation of the texts.
    Personal Investigation - Paper four of the Pre-U English assessment consists of a Personal Investigation undertaken by the student and culminating in a single 3000-3500 word essay. Students will need to come up with their own focus, scope and title for their project, which must be unique to them. The essay must include a significant comparison of two primary texts, in their entirety, written by two different authors of their choosing. Students must also reference at least two additional subsidiary texts in their essay. Chosen texts must have been originally written in English and students cannot use texts they have studied for other exam papers. Students can choose to focus their exploration and comparison of the two texts on genre, theme, period, or an alternative appropriate concept.

    This assessment is highly representative to how English Degree courses are assessed, with students expected to work independently and without support from their teacher beyond the initial stages of choosing a focus and title. Students are expected to work in accordance to academic study and research, including references, footnotes and a full bibliography presented in line with academic writing (although these do not count towards the word count). The paper is also designed to enable students to pursue and deepen their understanding of their personal areas of interest through encouraging high level research and requiring students to draw connections between different texts and authors. The Personal Investigation is externally assessed and worth a total of 25 marks, 25% of the Pre-U English grade.

    Benefits of studying English at Pre-U

    The benefits of completing a Pre-U Literature in English course are bountiful. Not only do students emerge with a highly respected qualification and a range of desirable skills, they are also better prepared for the expectations of University education or the world of employment than their A-level counterparts. Indeed, students of Pre-U English are set up for success regardless of their future ambitions.

    Poetry & Prose - The first exam paper focuses on the poetry and prose students have studied over their course. Students have 2 hours to answer two essay questions on two texts. Each question is on a single text and students will be required to answer one question on Poetry they have studied and one on Prose. One of the texts must have been written before 1900 and one after 1900. Each question is worth 25 marks with a total of 50, 25% of the overall grade, available on the entire exam paper.

One of the texts covered must have been written pre-1800 and non of the authors will have been used for papers 1 or 2.

    Tutoring FAQs

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
