Contact Katie

Hi, my name is Katie, I am 22 years old and am currently a final year undergraduate student at the University of Warwick. I study Film and Literature and am currently predicted to graduate with First Class Honours. I have many years experience tutoring students in English Literature and Language. English is a subject I am passionate about and have excelled in throughout my studies, achieving A*s at GSCE and A-level; however, I have personally received tutoring in other subjects and understand the challenges one can face when trying to improve their grades.

Tutoring experience

I have been tutoring for over three years now and have helped students of a variety of ages and abilities. I have a 100% pass rate and have helped many students go from achieving C-D grades to A*-B grades and I am happy to provide references from current and past students. Overall, I have tutored students from the ages of 12-18 in English Language, English Literature and English as an additional language. Over the last year I have tutored four students online via Skype and Zoom in order to ensure the safety of myself and my students during the pandemic, this has enabled me to develop my online tutoring services to an excellent standard.

Approach to tutoring

I focus on improving the confidence and written abilities of my students, using a range of engaging resources and encouraging students to push themselves in their reading and writing in order to achieve the best results they can.
For my GCSE and A-Level students, the focus is on exam technique and familiarisation with the mark scheme of each exam board, ensuring that individuals fully understand what is being asked of them in order to improve their grades.
I am a friendly, supportive tutor and all of my lessons are tailored to the needs of each individual student. I aim to create a safe environment for students to address the areas of their learning that need additional support. I set weekly homework and my marking time is included in my price. All I ask of my students is to try their best in our lessons, complete all homework by the deadlines and to update me on any issues they are having with their English work at school or college.
My lessons are inclusive and LGBTQI+ friendly.
