Cambridge Medievalist offering English Literature and Language tutoring up to A - Level

Methodology

I work hard to engage my students in a way that enthuses them about their subject. Partly in terms of what opportunities doing their very best can bring them, but also just fascination with the material itself. I genuinely think it is a privilege to get to spend a portion of your life where your actual job is to learn more about the world. To study literature and language. Any teaching has to begin from the postion that it's really quite wonderful we are getting to spend time doing this at all.

Once thats established. I love a print out. I self taught my A levels and so had to get very good at producing my own study materials. Charts, pictures, flashcards. Lots of these have handy digital forms that I'm now fully adept at using and can show students how to produce lots of their own learning materials. It is quite fun to make all of these. I have done a fair bit of reading on how to optimise memory retention to help myself with the tricky task of learning medieval languages. These techniques work really well with exam preparation too.

Experience

I study Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Cambridge. This has given insight into the history of the British Isles and the English language that complement the A level syllabus very well. I have mentored for the Summer School Futurversity and run access events in Cambridge to assist those without much support from their academic institutions to make strong applications.

As a teacher and examiner myself, I recommend my own students to Claire’s tuition. Her patience, and her ability to explain the subject content to students in a crystal clear way, means that she provides an excellent supplement to help students learn while encouraging them to take responsibility for their own progress. An excellent tutor.

Claire is a fantastic tutor with an amazing work ethic. She has particularly in-depth experience in access work, supporting strong university (and particularly Oxbridge) applications, and does fantastic revision and review classes. Having worked with her before, I would recommend her wholeheartedly to any prospective student.
