I am an A Level specialist, having spent most of my career teaching in sixth form colleges.
I offer tuition on the following set texts, and help with course work.
Aspects of Tragedy texts:
- Death of a Salesman
- Keats’ Poetry
- The Remains of the Day
- The Handmaid’s Tale*
I also offer: A Streetcar Named Desire;Hamlet;The Whitsun Weddings.
* The Handmaid’s Tale
This is one of my favourite texts to teach. I taught this text for five years and am delighted AQA have selected it again for this series. Having studied a paper on Canadian Literature at the University of Reading, I kept in touch with Professor Emerita Coral Howells, and assisted her in the redrafting of York Advanced Notes on this text. I was delighted to be credited in the Foreword of the edition featured right.
Key Stage Three
I tutor students from across Key Stage 3. One to one tuition enables them to focus on specific skills and to build their confidence in writing and textual analysis. Parents of Year 9 students often contact me because they wish their child to be ‘GCSE ready’. This can include an introduction to GCSE set texts, and the type of extracts they can expect on the English Language Papers.
I have successfully tutored students for entrance examinations to Manchester High School for Girls and Westminster School, London.
