Hello, I'm Laurence Dalton

My experience in teaching English GCSE

I have been teaching English GCSE for over 16 years. After graduating from Liverpool University and gaining my teaching qualifications, I commenced my career in the classroom.  Having been graded an 'outstanding' teacher by Ofsed, progressing into a Head of English position and then becoming an exam marker for a leading English GCSE exam board, I began private tutoring.

How I work to promote positive learning

I offer a style of learning conducive to students who naturally prefer the rules based subjects of Maths and Science. The lessons are constructed to develop your child's skills and enable them to better understand the English exam requirements, all from the comfort of their own home.

I offer:

  • English Language and English Literature GCSE tutoring.
  • Straighforward, logical and clear lessons to demonstrate how to succeed in English.
  • Strategies used to help students who naturally prefer the rules based Maths and Science subjects.
  • One-to-one private tutoring taught from the comfort of your own home.
  • Exam boards I teach regularly: AQA, Edexcel (Pearson), OCR & WJEC (Welsh board).

I pride myself in delivering bespoke one-to-one English Literature and English Language tutoring to secondary school pupils studying for GCSE.
