I have high expectations of my students. I aim to equip my students with reading and writing skills that are useful in all their endeavours and a curiosity about the written word for its own sake.MA, DPhil Subject: English Language & LIterature View Profile

Words are extraordinary. I love the way they can take you to places you’ve never been. I love the way they can seem to be telling you one thing and actually be saying something else entirely.MA, 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!
