Bilingual English and Russian Literature specialist located in Edinburgh, Linguist and Art/Architecture Historian.

Methodology

Having a bilingual literature background, I believe the road to success in analysis of poetry and understanding of texts is through practice. Nonetheless, there are structures and 'tips and tricks' to be learnt, using which even in stressful conditions one can be ensured to score well. I teach through conversation with the student rather than reciting a monologue, this way I ensure the student can come to the same conclusions without my help when working by themselves on essays and in exams.

Background

I've taught English literature to three IGCSE English World Literature pupils in the past, all of whom achieved an A* having come to me six months before the exam scoring Bs on their papers. I also aid essay writing for IB Literature Paper 1 and Paper 2.
