Geraldine has taught English for many years in the secondary school sector. She enjoys tutoring because of the opportunity it gives her to create bespoke English lessons, focusing on the needs of pupils.

Geraldine finds it easy to develop rapport with pupils, assisting them to learn English language skills which then lead to enhanced competence in their English literature studies.

A Personal Note from Geraldine Rose

There is a saying, ‘confidence breeds success and success breeds confidence’. Many pupils lack confidence in English and, in my opinion, confidence building is essential to English success: small group tuition is fertile soil for this confidence to flourish!

Regarding the new exam specifications for English, I believe you can learn the skills to answer the new exam questions in the depth and detail needed for higher levels. These new skills can catapult, in the right environment and with the right commitment, a child’s grades beyond their classroom levels.

My goal is to work with pupils to achieve their best English grades.

To now achieve Grade 7 or above, pupils need to learn to be creative and to ‘think outside the box’ . They need to ‘stand out’ from the crowd and push an ‘average’ answer through, into higher grade territory.

These skills need to be learnt early on in the GCSE course (Year 10 preferably) to give pupils time to develop, building confidence and succeed as they progress through the Course.
