Our English tutors teach students of ten years and older, across the British, IB and US curriculum. During late KS2 and early KS3, tuition is geared towards improving punctuation, grammar and enjoyment of reading. As students transition towards KS4, in order to achieve top grades in GCSE or IB MYP English, focus can shift towards complex sentence structures and tone of voice, accompanied by point-evidence-explain techniques for literature. By A level and IB Diploma Programme, students should have strong foundations and can move towards deeper, more nuanced discussions of literature, language and its role in society. At this level our professional English tutors are able to help students produce robust and cohesive essays under exam conditions.
