Hi, I’m Kayleigh! I’m an English and Law Tutor, and also a writer, editor, photographer and recent Criminal Justice and Criminology graduate. I offer online lessons to students of all levels.
I am a writer, editor, avid reader and theatre-goer. I recently graduated with a 1st in Criminal Justice and Criminology from the University of Leeds, so I particularly love the Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy which staged Julius Caesar, Henry IV and The Tempest in a women’s prison setting. I’m also an RSC Subscriber and have been enjoying their Talking Shakespeare events during lockdown.
I have experience mentoring as a Reading Partner (AQA Unit Award Scheme), and providing feedback on creative writing as an editor for an online literary magazine. In my spare time, I love to write and have been published by a number of lit mags and journals.
I’m also currently a tutor on the MyTutor Schools Programme, where I provide one-to-one online tuition to school students via the MyTutor platform as part of their formal education. In this role, I teach KS3 English, GCSE English Literature & Language, and A Level Law. This also means that I have a full Enhanced DBS Check!
I offer one-to-one online English lessons for KS3 and GCSE students via Skype or Zoom. My favourite topics to teach are creative writing, approaches to unseen poetry, and Shakespeare. I have a BA degree in Criminal Justice and Criminology, so I am also available to tutor Criminal Law up to A Level and Criminology to degree level.
Our first session will be about getting to know each other and tailoring our future sessions to suit your needs and your learning style. Sessions can range from discussing and developing ideas to structuring essays, practising creative writing and working through past papers. I also enjoy preparing and making tailored PDF resources for my students!
Reading Shakespeare is something I know many students struggle with, so I’ve developed some approaches to help understand his tricky and unfamiliar language. Shakespeare wrote his plays to be performed by actors and watched by audiences, so I believe that watching performances as well as listening to actors’ thoughts about their characters and the play can be extremely helpful ways to learn. It’s also a great “way in” to Shakespeare if your favourite actor has performed the play you’re studying!
