MA in Contemporary Literature offering bespoke English tutoring (GCSE/A Level/Undergraduate) in Cardiff.

Methodology

My teaching method is fairly relaxed - our first intro session will comprise of a short assessment so I can get a sense of where the student is, and then a casual chat to establish what the student's own aims are. From there I'll establish a flexible tutoring plan that can be deviated from if the student feels like there are areas that need specific attention (e. g. specific texts or perhaps something they've struggled with in school). My approach is fairly straightforward, I will get the student writing essays at the earliest opportunity!

Background

I have been tutoring for the last two years (one year with an agency), in which time I have supported several students through their English Literature and English Language GCSEs.

I have a BA in English Literature from Durham University and an MA in Contemporary Literature, Culture and Theory from King's College, London.

− My work in tutoring has involved working in often challenging client-pupil-tutor relationships, which requires me to balance the priorities and expectations of different people to find the most workable and
emotionally intelligent way forward.
− I have become adept at finding bespoke solutions to individual problems, rejecting one-size-fits-all
teaching techniques in favour of methods refined for the individual student.
