I encourage my pupils to take an active approach to their studies. If my student isn’t enjoying an activity, I’ll stop and find another approach. I believe this mentality is why homeschooling works wellBA, PGCE Subject: English Language & Literature View Profile

I received an A* for my IGCSE English Literature. It came as a wonderful surprise as I received only a C for my preliminary mock exams in school. What really helped me were the notes that Wolsey Hall Oxford provided. This was particularly so because there were hardly any available resources on the stories and poems I had to learn for the exam. The notes provided were excellent – in depth yet easy to understand. Literature was not my best subject and to get an A* was truly awesome – thank you Wolsey Hall Oxford!
