Help with English literature

GCSE and A Level

Many pupils struggle to connect with First World War poets, Shakespeare and all the other set authors.

As well as being an author myself, I have lectured to degree level in 20th century poetry, drama and novels and and I have served on GCSE examining boards as question-setter and senior examiner.

My teaching and examining showed me how important it is to bring literature fully alive for young students. That's why I turned the girl in the photo into Shakespeare's Titania - and her Norwich home into the enchanted forest of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

To quote her mum: 'She won't forget that when she takes her English Lit exam!'

Based near North Walsham, I welcome pupils of all ages and stages for personal help with literature and literacy. I'll also consider calling on pupils in Sheringham, Cromer, Norwich and Broadland.

Despite the international reach of my writing, my roots are in Norfolk, where I was born with a stick of chalk in my hand! Many years on, supporting children and teens remains my top priority.
