The Curious Case of A-Level English
Thousands of 17-18 year olds will be receiving their A-Level results tomorrow. A good proportion of these will be collecting English Literature grades and amongst them will be two of my students.

How to approach a GCSE English Paper
Many students think that re-reading texts and key ideas is enough to see them through their GCSE English exams. It is important to do both of these things but students must also have a clear strategy for how to approach each paper. In my experience, many students fail to think through how they are going to answer questions and don't spend...

| From a student who received an A in his English Language GCSE:|
Finally, I just want to say thank you for all the tutoring especially in English Language which we focused more intensely on as I felt beforehand that I was particularly weak at it.
- GCSE Student
| Thank you very much for all your hard work with Nathan, I am sure he is feeling much more confident about doing his exams! |
- Mother of GCSE Student
| Hannah has taken a gradual approach to familiarising Alexandre with English literature and poetry. He was quite reluctant at first, but her pedagogical approach has borne its fruits - our child like so many of his generation is reluctant to reading.|
We cannot recommend Hannah enough. She is professional, punctual, charming. Her reviews of Alexandre are very helpful.
- Parents of male GCSE Student
| As I didn't see you on the last lesson, I wanted to thank you so much for your continued commitment and your super professional attitude managing to be friendly and respected by your students. |
- Mother of GCSE student
| He said it went well and he used the timings you taught him|
He managed to answer all questions and he did say without
you he couldn’t have done it ( that’s a huge confession from my son)
So all the thanks in the world for your hard work.
- Mother of GCSE student
| Despite being thousands of miles away, I have received extremely great guidance from Hannah for my English GCSE and English Literature A- level for the past 3 years via online Skype. My English grades have tremendously improved thanks to Hannah. I would highly recommend Hannah for tutoring. |

How an Essay Tutor can help you
Ace your degree with an essay tutor who is at the top of their field.
The Profs deliver the best private essay help tuition to students at all levels. Whether you need support to guide you through your GCSEs, your A-levels, a university degree or a professional qualification, our expert essay tuition can help you reach your goals. Our essay tutors consist of distinguished academics from the UK’s top university departments and of creative writing professionals. They have expertise in helping students plan, structure, and argument a case well for academic essays as well as guide you through the more practical side of referencing correctly.
We’ve all been there. I’ve done all the reading and preparation but I feel that starting this essay is like climbing a mountain. All the material I’ve got can’t be fitted into the word-count, can it, and even if it could, how confident do I feel that I’ve answered the question? Our essay writing experts can assist students with essay problems across every academic level from school to PhD. As academics ourselves we have marked countless essays and, crucially, know exactly why some students do well, while others less so. We can assist you with the tricky starting point of task definition, followed by accurate planning, development of argument, reaching effective conclusions and hitting the word-count – all within a manageable time limit. The academic essay requires a particular way of using language which can seem alien but is, in fact, more natural and easy to use than first thought. Indeed, many of our students go on to develop a confidence in essay writing that even surprises them, especially when they have gone up a degree classification in their marked work!
An essay tutor will support you every step of the way and will encourage and motivate you. You may wish to focus on a specific subject or problem you are struggling with, such as choosing a topic for your essay, managing your time well, structuring your essay, putting your thoughts and arguments on paper in a coherent way etc. We can provide you with a top essay tutor specialised in the subject you need help with.
Essay tutoring can also assist you with improving your English, if English is not your first language. High quality tuition (online or in London) in essay writing and planning can be delivered in tutorials. All our tutoring sessions are tailor made and based on students’ needs and aims. Our essay tutors provide extensive support in various ways. They will work with you to work out solutions and improve on past essays, and they can review worksheets and assignments to plan and implement your projects.
