  About Rachel
I am an experienced English teacher, tutor and examiner. One to one online tuition is an alternative to the normal classroom experience and can help to personalise learning, develop confidence and enhance key skills. I provide online tuition in Secondary English & English Literature at Key Stage 3, GCSE & A Level. All tutoring is specifically tailored to meet the needs of the individual to determine strengths, weaknesses and to set targets to progress. Lessons are interesting and engaging, ensuring that students develop the skills to become confident and independent learners. A variety of activities and resources are used including written exercises, reading responses, controlled assessment preparation and practice exams to encourage attainment. Tutoring online means I can reach more students and use a number of different resources easily which was not always possible face to face. Students are more engaged, more focused and it is more convenient for all involved. I am a fully qualified, enhanced CRB checked, secondary school teacher of English with 17 years of experience in both teaching and private tutoring. I have a BA Hons in English with Education Studies, a PGCE qualification in English and a Masters Degree in Education. I teach English & English Literature at Key Stage 3, GCSE, iGCSE and A level, as well as Functional Skills English. I am also an examiner or have examined for the main UK exam boards, including Edexcel, AQA, WJEC and Cambridge, examining both English and English Literature GCSE, iGCSE, Functional Skills English and AS Level. This gives me a clear understanding of the expectations of exam boards and exam papers.

  My Ratings & References
Emma H. (Customer review)
Rachel was an incredible tutor and helped me so much in preperation for my exam. She made sure I understood everything before moving on and explained things in detail and made it easy to understand. I went into the exam with so much confidence and came out knowing that I did really well. The lessons not only helped me prepare for my exam...but also for all my english lessons and tests in the future. I learned so much from her and have improved all my writing techniques and know how to answer questions in detail and set them out properly. I am so thankful for her help and would recommend her to anyone.
