Leaps and Bounds


Here at Leaps and Bounds I offer tuition in English and History for all levels; whether you are involved in studying for examinations or merely wish to improve your understanding of these subjects. 

An ex-university lecturer now living in Louth, I have also taught GCSE and A level (at FE College) I continue to write poetry and research into my specialist area of 17th century female poets.


English Language

Many people have problems - from writing letters, constructing essays or applying for jobs. Punctuation to paragraphs, prose to poetry, I can help you both understand and improve your grasp of the written word . 

After an initial discussion and assessment (as part of the first lesson), I will be able to advise you of how many sessions you should require. You will then be given a full timetable setting out the contents of each tuition period. All materials will be provided.   


English Literature

GCSE, AS ,A and Undergraduate students may wish to concentrate on their set texts so as to improve their appreciation of those works and coursework grades. However, as part of the teaching process, we shall also consider relevant supporting material to highlight themes etc, where necessary - all of which will be provided 

I am also planning to start a Literature Appreciation workshop. Those interested should contact me for further details. Please note - places will be limited. 


Creative Writing

We will discuss plot, theme and character development , both in works by established writers and students themselves. We will  also look at the construction of poetry and the manipulation of language, themes and variation. Each workshop would consist of group work and practical sessions and is aimed at both those who wish to be published or for enjoyment.



For GCSE, AS, A and Undergraduate students, we shall concentrate on the syllabus followed. We shall discuss planning of coursework, essays and project work as well as in depth discussion of the various topics of history required.

Additional material will be provided - the session primarily geared to filling in the gaps and perceptions of the student.
