English Literature (GCSE)
John was really helpful with my politics essay. I wasn't sure how to tackle it so he talked me through ideas and helped me to structure my argument. He was very clear and made the essay seem a lot less daunting! He was helpful in the sense that we openly discussed the question and relevant themes, so I was able to come up with ideas without it feeling like it was all his work. Highly recommended and Very helpful!
A greater understanding of how to structure essays and to approach an essay question by talking through ideas. Made the work seem less daunting and much more approachable.
My son's first lesson with John went very well. He is very personable and looks very knowledgable. I believe we made a great decision in finding him. Thanks Tutorfair. We will definite book him again.
John has been really useful in helping me with my A level English literature course. He has read the books I am studying so that he can help me to understand them more. He is very easy to talk to and it is very easy to ask him questions. He is great at getting you more interested in the subject and therefore enjoying it more and working harder. He goes over past essays that I have written and explains to me how I can improve them in a very positive manner. John is very relaxed, easy going and reliable.
My recent exam questions and essays have been much better than before. I am understanding how to analyse my books a lot better as well.
