I am a current English Literature undergraduate student looking to help support others with English/English Literature

Methodology

I firstly like to know how best the student works and then build on this to guide them into a routine with their learning, helping them to become more confident in the subject. I like to break down the bigger task into smaller and more understandable elements to ensure that the student not only gets the right outcome, but also understand the process that they went through to get there.

Experience

I have previously been a GCSE English tutor and have also had work experience teaching after school English lessons for primary school students. I have attained an A* in both GCSE English Literature and English Language and an A in A-level English. I am currently on track to achieve a 2:1 in my degree.
