Qualified English Teacher (11+, GCSE, A-Level & EFL)

I work part-time in Islington and part-time in Folkestone and am able to tutor online or in person. I am a warm and engaging tutor, and love to see my pupils make progress and discover a passion for learning.

I am fully DBS checked, am experienced in tutoring 11+, 13+, GCSE and A-Level and am a qualified Secondary English and English as a Foreign Language teacher. I am experienced tutoring face on face and online. In addition, I have taught English to pupils of various ages and abilities at two outstanding academies, taught in language schools, mentored young people at a creative writing centre and facilitated workshops at a theatre youth group. I am also experienced in supporting teenagers with a variety of speech and language needs.

My first degree was in English and German Literature at the University of Warwick, where I achieved a first class honours on the Warwick Writing Programme. I have an RSA Cambridge English Language Teaching Award from International House Barcelona. I was also awarded a scholarship from the Arts and Humanities Research Board Award to study an MSc in Electronic Publishing at City University, which has since led to lots of exciting projects in Digital Education.

In my free time, I love to explore world cinema, dance and art, have volunteered on several theatre productions (both adult and youth) and written numerous film and theatre scripts.

Kerry is tutoring my daughter at the moment and preparing her very well for upcoming year 7 entrance assessments. Kerry is a thoughtful and caring tutor and always looks at the best and fun ways to learn. Kerry's thirst for her pupils to learn is infectious, my daughter thoroughly enjoys her tutoring with Kerry. I would not hesitate to recommend her to children of all ages.

English iGCSE

Kerry gave me a ton of support throughout year 10, helping with both language and literature aspects of the syllabus, ultimately helping me secure a predicted A* for GCSE. She was always enthusiastic and encouraging, especially when I made mistakes and helped me learn to improve my own work with techniques and skills I would not have otherwise known.
Subject:
English
Outcome:
The outcome gave me incredible confidence as by the end of the year I had secured a predicted A* in both language and literature for my GCSE.
