Hi, I've been teaching secondary English for over 12 years and have experience of OCR, AQA and WJEC GCSEs in Language and Literature. I have also taught GCSE Film Studies. I actually really enjoy creating new resources with a particular focus on creativity and engaging learners as much as I can in an enjoyment of English as well as making progress.
