I always look up the board my students are taking so the lessons are really relevant. Then we go through past papers or set texts, whatever the student finds helpful.
I find a lot of them are interested in essay structure, so I tend to help them with that. They also ask about spelling and grammar a lot.
I normally give my students a starter activity, like a picture or an extract. We discuss the mood and what it implies.
I always find that making a glossary of literary terms is really helpful for my English students, because they can use it no matter what text they're presented with.
We get on really well - I feel I really know them, and they often arrange lessons with me spontaneously.
There was one girl who was home-schooled and hadn't done English for a couple of years. We worked together and in the end she got an A, so we were really pleased.
