Trusted teacher: Having difficulties analysing poems and prose in your (I) GCSE / IB English Literature course? Looking to amp your essays up a notch and finally get that A/A* or 6/7 that you have been dreaming of? I am here to help. The first thing to remember: though analysing works of literature isn't always fun, everybody can master the techniques of how to do it. But learning takes time, which the school teacher may often lack. Indeed, it has been my own experience that English teachers often choose width over depth, and so discussions are cut short for the sake of covering all elements of the teaching programme, leaving many interesting aspects of a particular work unexplored. Or sometimes it's just the attention that wanders off as the teacher is explaining these pesky concepts of "writer's voice", "writer's tone", "meter", "rhymescheme" and so on. Let me assure you: that, too, happens even to the best of us. What I can offer you is exactly what a teacher normally does not time for: exploring a work of literature in as much detail (both analytical and technical) as it takes to push the quality of your essays up to the desired level. My approach is informed by IB / (I)GSCE Eng Lit course guidelines to make sure that the quality of your answer would be developed in accordance with what examiners want to see. Armed with a deep passion for literature on the one hand (reading and writing poems and short stories are one of my favorite things to do) and knowledge of ways of critical analysis (obtained in IB English Lit and reinforced by philosophy courses on university level) which are of tremendous importance in literary analysis as well, I will show you how to deconstruct any piece, how to place it in its cultural context, and make educated guesses about the links between cultural context and the author's choice of stylistical devices. And best of all - unlike in the classroom, the learning experience is tailored to you (based on your way of learning / remembering) and delivered in a highly interactive way! The skills described above, coupled with general essay writing tips will lend authority and style to your summative essays and exam answers, boosting your academic confidence.

Trusted teacher: English Language B for the A level (UK) syllabus demands knowledge of Linguistics (mainly applied) at a first-year university level. In this course, you will learn a range of linguistic methods and learn (if necessary by heart) the terms used for describing a specific aspect of language or phenomenon (lexis, morphemes, and 'telegraphic stage' to give a few examples). The course requires you to explore your own data using quantitative and qualitative analysis (eg: how frequently are slang phrases used? Are there new auxiliaries being created?). The course is based largely on David Crystal's Rediscover Grammar (2004). This course supports the A level in English Language, but it is also a solid base for the UK or American universities' Linguistics or English language preparation. No historical linguistics or literature is involved, but language change will be sampled via original texts that illustrate for example lexical changes.

Trusted teacher: Hello! My name is Abolaji Abdrahman, from Nigeria. I have studied Arabic language (including reading, writing, listening and speaking skills). I also studied Quran & it's sciences, Tajweed, and other Islamic studies for more than fourteen years. I have studied Arabic from the International Open University and Arabic Institute. Currently, I'm also an Undergraduate student of Islamic Studies Education in the University of Lagos, Akoka. I also study under the tutelage of Sheikh Raslān from Egypt. I am a tutor of modern standard Arabic, classical Arabic (the language of Quran and Hadith) and colloquial Arabic ('āmiyyah). I love teaching Arabic because it is a very important language of Islam. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W said we should love Arabic language because: he is an Arabic, the holy Quran is in Arabic language and the language of the paradise dwellers is Arabic. I also love teaching Arabic language because it is the fifth most spoken language in the world. It is the official language of 26 countries including 5 of the wealthiest countries in the world. And it's sixth most spoken language in the world. Learning such a language will avail you to the discovery of most interesting cultures in today's world. It will also look good in your resume. With Arabic language, you'll become a polyglot and you will be able to adapt to the environments of Arab. As a Muslim, with Arabic language, you'll have thorough understanding of Quran and Sunnah. I have been tutoring Arabic and Islamic Studies since 2014 both online and offline till date. I tutor the learners between the ages of 5 - 80. The focus of my instruction is on all the important skills of the language (reading, writing, listening and speaking), grammar and vocabulary development.

I am also certified to instruct in the memorization of Quran, the sciences of Quran like different versions of Quranic recitation (riwāyāt), the exegesis of Quran (tafsīr), e.t.c I have syllabus and materials for tutoring Arabic efficiently within a period of six to twelve months.

Trusted teacher: Hi! I’m an English nerd graduating from Cheltenham Ladies College with an A* prediction. I love exploring the nitty gritty of English literature, poetry and comparative analysis in an exciting learning environment. While discussion and debate are integral for success in English, I also value the importance of strong exam technique to give confident expression of complex ideas in essays. I can create custom presentations on topics students need support with, so that I may guide them through materials at their own pace. Taking a more personal approach than a classroom environment often allows students to engage more deeply with the materials. Thus, personal engagement is something I highly value when teaching, as when students learn to develop their own opinions and ideas it becomes easier for them to be confident in essays. I can teach anything from the basics of English language for younger students, all the way to the secrets of success at Literature A Level. I also enjoy both poetry and creative writing and am well practiced in both writing and analysing different forms of writings. All I require is that the student be aware of what they need to work on and be motivated to challenge themselves.

Bachelor ES series having obtained the congratulations of the jury, I am also available for any type of support in literary and mathematical subjects. I have been doing tutoring for three years now, experience having taught me to adapt to all types of students.

Trusted teacher: Dependant on what you are looking for, I can prepare you for an English Literature exam, help you improve your work for school, or improve English as your non-native language. Since October 2021, I have been an EAL teacher and HLTA at a secondary school in Camden. I have been teaching English to classes of Refugees from Afghanistan and working with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. I love being able to take someone with limited knowledge of English and growing their understanding of the language. I am a recent graduate from the University of Birmingham where I gained a 2:1 in Drama and English Literature, and I have recently completed a Diploma in Musical Theatre at Associated Studios in London. Since April 2020, I have been teaching English as a Second Language online with Educasteam. This job involves tutoring French speaking adults and children, and ensuring they learn English to a high standard in a positive and encouraging environment. I am TEFL certified. I am passionate about reading, and would be able to effectively take a student from basic English knowledge to being more confident in their ability to understand a text. I am passionate about students being able to learn in a supportive and productive environment. I am also interested in the students, and understand the necessity to always put them first.
Trusted teacher: A step-by-step tuition program that: Builds self-esteem Increases resilience Improves wellbeing Improves communication Improves study skills Resources provided include: -Mentoring -3D animation videos to explain concepts -Worksheets -Other supplementary materials Who i've worked with; -students at prestigious schools across the world (e.g. Eton College, St. Paul's) -students at the top universities (e.g. Oxford University, Yale University) -student athletes (e.g. Harvard/Stanford and Team GBR Olympics teams) -recent graduates at the world's top firms (e.g. Goldman Sachs, Slaughter & May) This programme has been turned into a workshop and will be delivered at both Oxford and Cambridge universities for first year students. Every student needs assistance to rebound after the pandemic and lockdowns. I have the expertise to get students back on track. I have tutored students from the most prestigious schools in the country as well as students internationally. I have delivered talks at schools on student success and have authored four books on topics such as productivity, time-management, self-discipline & confidence. I founded the first online personal development academy for teenagers based around a holistic approach to learning. I also create wellbeing & mental health resources for young people at schools and universities. My role is not only in preparing students for the future but it is giving them the confidence to shape it. My objective is to inspire, motivate and cultivate ambitious young students who have the ability to identify and fulfil their aspirations. I combine five interlinked components that, if worked on in tandem, can drastically change a students life for the better and aid them in becoming the pioneers of the future. These 5 strands are: 1) Mindset 2) Wellbeing Management 3) Study Skills 4) Life Skills 5) Leadership Development I place a special emphasis on personal development and this is what makes me different. I believe it is possible to equip students with the mindset and skillset to radically alter their lives for the better. My instruction goes beyond this by including study skills such as note-taking, memory improvement techniques, speed-reading, and effective revision into its program. These skills will stay with pupils and enlighten their entire academic tenure. Finally, my role is also about offering guidance to students in terms of their current issues, academic future and potential career paths. My educational system is a result of years of lessons I myself learned progressing through the academic arena all the way to university level. In addition, it encompasses all the research I have conducted in self-improvement, effective study skills and successful leadership. These methods have been tested and proven successful. I hope to impart this knowledge to the next generation and watch them do great things with it. Yours sincerely, Ash

Trusted teacher: Actor of formation having lived abroad (London and Toronto), I love English and I would like everyone to know how to speak it! There is indeed a delay in France with respect to English, which is remembered is spoken worldwide and is the first language of communication!
