What Do I Teach?

EHS Shop


I specialise in AQA English Language and Literature but am familiar with all exam boards, such as Edexcel, OCR and Eduqas.


As I'm fully booked for English tuition until June 2025, I now make digital and printable ebooks and activity packs so that I can continue to help students of all ages to practise and develop their English knowledge and skills.

For students of GCSE AQA English Language, I have also created some digital and printable guides to Paper 1 and Paper 2 which contain the detailed strategies I share with my Year 10 and 11 tutees in their online lessons. For more information, please visit my shop.

Client Testimonials

I am delighted to have received many fantastic reviews from my previous, happy customers (and can produce the original texts, emails and letters from these clients upon request).

Catherine supported my son in preparing for his GCSE's in English Language and Literature. She is patient, engaging and passionate about tutoring. Her knowledge of the subject and the exam requirements was very good. She was pragmatic in her approach, setting realistic homework goals that tied into my son's school work. My son's confidence in these subjects increased massively. I could not recommend Catherine highly enough.
