Made a brilliant start to Macbeth today, managing to cover context and the plot of Act 1. As expected, we had very detailed and interesting discussions about the play so far. Really looking forward to continuing the study of Macbeth with Megan over the next couple of months!

Another beautiful start to my Saturdays with Megan! We aced the anthology comparison, made perceptive links to help my planning for the upcoming SLE and also started to have a look at unseen poetry by unravelling darker aspects of seemingly serene romance. Always looking forward to our sessions together!
Megan - Saduni- English Language - GCSE
29th June 2023
Brilliant session again going over poetry feedback and transferring those analytical skills onto another poem, now ready to be written up. Hugely grateful for Megan’s support and encouragement over the last several months, as it has evidently paid off! Cannot wait for many more similar sessions and successes in the near future.
Megan - Saduni- English Language - GCSE

Had a very interesting conversation regarding the analysis of ‘Farmer’s Bride’ and multiple fascinating ideas were discussed regarding the poetry anthology’s theme of darker, unrequited love. Very much looking forward to more poetry work with Megan!
