Always enthusiastic and highly supportive tutor for English (GCSE, iGCSE, A level, Common Entrance) and for UCAS / Personal Statements. I enjoy working with students at all levels and can help build confidence in difficult areas such as creative writing. I am a very experienced iGCSE and A level examiner and can offer insight into how to achieve consistently high marks and hit all assessment objectives. I am a Head of Sixth Form and have huge experience in supporting candidates with the UCAS process across all subjects and with competitive applications such as Oxford and Cambridge.

About me

I am currently a Head of Sixth Form and was previously Head of English at an independent school in the North of England. Prior to this I was English couse leader at a large Sixth Form College where I again worked extensively with UCAS applicants. I have a huge range of student-friendly resources cross the whole English curriculum which were largely written by myself. All of these are available to any candidates I am working with.

Tutor Experience

I am a Head of Sixth Form and before this was Head of English at a high-performing independent school. Before this I was curriculum leader in English at a large Sixth Form College in Greater Manchester. I have almost 20 years teaching experience and have been working as a private tutor since 2019 with a wide range of clients, covering Common Entrance, Sixth Form Entry Examinations, GCSE, iGCSE, A level and university applications of all kinds. I work in a cooperative way and tailor everything I do to the needs and interests of the individual student. I will only teach in areas where I am 100% confident I can improve a candidates performance and I am pleased to say that I have achieved successful outcomes with all the students I have worked with.
