Hello my name is Rosie, I have a degree in English Literature and Language from St Peter's College, Oxford University. I am comfortable teaching all areas of English Literature, History, Philosophy and Theatre Studies up to A Level standard and have always had good results with students I have tutored. At Oxford I covered all periods of English Literature from 1100 to the present. If it is of interest, my two specialist papers were Tennyson and versions of 'Measure for Measure' from 1604-1700.
The work I have done with my tutees has varied widely. With many students my teaching has remained focused on set texts and the exam syllabus. For some, who have wished to explore beyond these, I have enjoyed suggesting and working through texts for further study. The latter has most often been the case when students have been considering the subjects for higher study. When higher study in the subjects I am tutoring in is sought I have also looked at personal statements and coached students for entrance exams.
I have tutored over 80 students since graduating from Oxford University in 2010. Of these I have had 30 GCSE students who have reached A* in subjects such as History, English Literature and English Language, over 30 students who have achieved an A or above in their respective subjects and all students have improved by at least a grade following lessons. I have tutored four students in all aspects of their Oxford interviews and entrance exams and they have gained their respective places.
I also work as a professional actress, graduating from LAMDA in 2013 and working at The National and for the BBC, amongst others. Prior to and alongside academic tutoring I have led numerous Theatre Workshops. These have brought me into contact with a wide variety of young people and enabled me to explore different methods of teaching.
Please email me if you are interested in tuition and we may be able to work out a reduction.
