Oxford graduate English tutor in Oxford city area

I am a recent graduate of Oriel College Oxford with a first class BA in Classics and English.
I am a motivating, relaxed and friendly tutor. My lessons are always led by the student and I follow the direction of thinking of my students rather than my own plan. I prepare texts, questions and exercises in advance and am happy to mark work done by the tutee outside of tuition. My lessons often involve practicing grammar and learning new vocabulary when I am working with a younger student, or discussing a piece of literature and its context with older students.
I have more than 60 hours experience as a private tutor working with students of all levels, from KS1 to adult. In addition I have 70 hours voluntary experience tutoring KS1 and KS2 pupils in English in small groups and on a one-to-one basis. I have around 10 hours experience teaching older pupils and was employed by a university run summer school to teach beginners Ancient Greek.
I also have experience working with children as a play worker at an adventure playground in Oxford.
My main interests academically are in the history of the Ancient Greek and Germanic languages (like Old English and Old Norse), as well as in Medieval manuscripts and epic poetry. In my undergraduate degree I studied texts ranging from Beowulf to 21st century poetry and am well qualified to teach texts from various syllabuses, including Shakespeare's plays, the Gothic, Milton and Chaucer.
