English Literature Tutor Online

I started as an ESL teacher in South Korea in 2004 working with children and young adults. Following my PGCE, I worked mainly at universities and colleges, teaching various foundation and IELTS preparation courses. In Oman, I worked as an IELTS examiner alongside my main position at a college and spent some time after this teaching IELTS, general and business English courses in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In addition, I spent two years writing ESL textbooks full-time. My most recent teaching position was for an international school in Vietnam (The Dewey Schools, Hai Phong) where I taught Humanities and Social Studies to a Year 9 ESL class. This involved substantially rewriting the curriculum and modifying assessed tasks to fit in with the language ability of the students, as well as delivering a tailored ESL curriculum to support their learning.

Reviews for English Literature Tutors in Dorchester

5.0

Ellie was thrilled beyond words to have been awarded a clean sweep of the highest possible grades across all her GCSEs - so 9s in all the English syllabuses and A*s in all the Welsh syllabuses. But as you can imagine, she is most proud of her 9 in English Literature and her 9 in English Language. These grades were both hard-won, & they would simply not have been possible without you. We would both like to sincerely thank you for your fabulous tutoring - at all times, you were hugely organised and explained things patiently and clearly. You demystified English for Ellie - in your sessions with her, the pace was reassuring, everything was always easy to understand, and in particular Ellie really appreciated the way you built on her ideas (rather than just providing the correct answers), and then focused her writing in a way that made it high-scoring. You gave her the formula for winning top grades, and so then her confidence grew - from thinking that English was just always going to be a blind spot for her, to instead realising that no, she could actually do well in this subject!! Thank you so much for your intervention - it has been game-changing. Mrs. Louise Meredith

We contacted Michelle after our son had not done as well as we had hoped in his 11 plus English exam and first term of Y7 exams (termly reports with grades of around B1-B2). Although our son worked hard but as being a bilingual boy from an international family, it seemed this was the best outcome he could have achieved, which also disappointed him. Since meeting with Michelle in just a few weeks, our son has grown in confidence and tells us he has learnt a lot and got a much better understanding of how to cope with learning English and demonstrating his knowledge & skills. Michelle offers her own well-prepared teaching materials, and she has a relaxed and innovative approach to tutoring, really taking time to get to know the student and gearing her teaching to their learning style. During the past few months, Michelle has pushed our son to work beyond his boundaries and comfort zone but does this in a gentle and kind way and has formed a very good relationship with him, which is helping him to learn and to be guided. Now, we have received some very positive feedback from our sons English teacher from school, and he was really happy to receive his first grade A mark for his Spring term end exam. Well done! We know we have chosen the right person to support our son in learning his English, and we would highly recommend Michelle. My son is 12 years old now and currently attends a local grammar school in Bath. Mrs. Nancy Yan

I would highly recommend Rachel as a tutor, especially given her exceptional work over the past three years with my two sons, who have special educational needs (SEN). Rachel has a remarkable ability to engage with children, adapting her teaching style to meet their individual needs effectively. Her patience and understanding have made a significant difference in their learning journey, demonstrating her dedication and skill in catering to diverse learning abilities. Rachel's approach is not only professional but also incredibly personal, ensuring that each child feels valued and supported. Her contribution to my son's education has been invaluable, and I am confident she will bring the same level of commitment and excellence to any teaching role. Irena Filipowska

I have been a qualified secondary English teacher since 2017, and in that time, I have worked exclusively in 'Outstanding' state schools, and an independent school rated 'Excellent' by the ISI. As a teacher, I've always done my best to make English an accessible subject for everyone while using my advanced subject knowledge to challenge every level of learner. My classes' exam results have been consistently excellent, and I have been lucky enough to receive highly positive feedback from pupils, parents and colleagues. Throughout my teaching career, I have also worked as a private tutor, working with all levels of learners at widely different points in their education, from playing silly word games to aid KS2 spelling and grammar basics to helping a college student achieve full marks in their A-Level coursework, comparing the work of EM Forster and the poet John Agard.

Please provide your tuition requirements above.

Tuition with a qualified English Literature teacher at your home in Dorchester costs from £48.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified English Literature teacher costs from £42.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and English Literature tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced English Literature teachers in Dorchester, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our English Literature teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves an English Literature tutor coming to your home in Dorchester to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the English Literature tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the English Literature tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the English Literature tutor is required to travel to your home, in Dorchester. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your English Literature tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your English Literature tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of English Literature tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group English Literature tuition in Dorchester depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
