English Literature in the Sixth Form requires literary skills, textual knowledge and critical material to be carefully woven together for success in the exams and in non-examined assessment. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the exam system and all of the major exam boards, and are keenly aware of the subtle differences between each one.
We work with your child in developing their detailed textual understanding of the set texts, their ability to engage critically with both contextual and critical material and frameworks, as well as their appreciation of how a writer’s craft conveys meaning to the reader or audience.
Essay skills and the ability to structure their responses are then enhanced to combine their literary knowledge with sophisticated, focused answers to optimise their final grade.
Whether approaching exams for the first time or re-sitting post qualification, we offer an individualised approach for all our students to fit their specific needs and requirements.
One-to-one tuition allows for individualised support for your child. We start with an initial discussion with you and your child to discuss specific needs and put a personalised scheme of work in place.
This then forms the basis of subsequent tuition sessions, whilst retaining the flexibility to adapt and change individual sessions to meet needs that may arise from your child’s day to day study in school.
Individual tuition prices include:
Extra support for your child between sessions is available and can be explored in our initial discussion.
After you contact us via our contact form with a brief overview of your requirements, we will get in touch to undertake a comprehensive assessment and exploration of your child's aims before providing a detailed scheme of work for the sessions ahead.
Once we have agreed together as to how best to achieve your child's goals, we put in place a schedule of tutor sessions, maintaining the flexibility to increase or decrease the duration or number of sessions as suits you.
All tutor sessions are fully resourced with all materials supplied free of charge. Consolidation work after each session is set, and precise, focused feedback is given on a regular basis. With a wealth of experience in the classroom and in tutoring, your child's sessions will be differentiated to perfectly suit their ability and progress.
