GCSE English Tuition
Our network of tutors are well-versed in tutoring students at GCSE level and ensuring they succeed and achieve the best grades through study, exam and study techniques and persistence. We also help students strengthen areas in which they are less confident. Our tutors are fully up-to- speed with the new GCSE (9-1) English Language and English Literature syllabuses.
This includes persuasive and creative writing and requires students to write a number of pages in an effective and logical way. More open-ended questions may occur, requiring students to conjure up a far greater level of creative detail than ever before. They will be
required to describe, explain and debate through the medium of the English language.
Students will need to read and analyse texts such as To Kill a Mockingbird, Jayne Eyre, An Inspector Calls, Lord of the Flies and Of Mice and Men. They will then need to answer questions and address various arguments and concepts in the English Language; applied to well- known literature. This will include more complex concepts such as pathetic fallacy, symbolism, juxtaposition and more.
There is also the need to critique poetry and anthropology successfully, with the exact work depending on the exam board.
Our tutors can offer help with GCSE English coursework in case the pupil would like some help with essay writing, planning and presentation.
