About Kayleigh

I’m a playwright, published poet and tutor with over 3 years experience teaching on other online platforms, working with schools and private students. I have a track record of helping students achieve their desired grades and meet their targets in a variety of subjects:

◾KS2 & KS3 English

◾GCSE English Language and Literature

◾GCSE Biology

◾A Level Law

◾Undergraduate Criminology

I now focus on tutoring English at GCSE.

Why I tutor: I enjoy tutoring English as it’s such a creative subject which encourages self-expression. Studying English also teaches you how to analyse texts and form your own interpretations, which is key to developing independent, critical thinking as a life skill. There are no wrong answers; any interpretation is valid so long as you can justify it! Acing your assessment is all about how you present your ideas to meet what your examiners are looking for, so I’m here to help with structure and exam technique as well as to develop your ideas.

My favourite areas to teach are: Creative writing, the Literature set texts (including Macbeth, An Inspector Calls, A Christmas Carol, Jane Eyre, Romeo and Juliet, Jekyll and Hyde) and unseen poetry.

Some fun facts about me: I’m a playwright, dramaturg, gig photographer and published poet. My own writing has been performed across the South West and London, at theatres including Exeter Phoenix and The Other Palace. 

I graduated from the University of Leeds in 2020 with a 1st in Criminal Justice and Criminology, so I particularly love the Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy which set Julius Caesar, Henry IV and The Tempest in a women’s prison setting.

Tutoring Style

My sessions are tailored to my students' needs and learning style. I identify the skills they need to work on, and plan accordingly! For GCSE English, activities can include:

◾practising how to form interpretations of texts

◾discussing and developing ideas and analysis

◾structuring and writing essays

◾practising creative writing & finding approaches that work for you

◾working through each question on a past paper in detail

◾practising using subject terminology, identifying techniques and/or linking to context

I also enjoy preparing model essays to teach by example, and making tailored PDF resources and online workbooks for my students to support their learning! 📚
