« Perfect! I had a productive session working with Eva on two essays. Eva gave me lots of advice on how to improve my work which helped me with the editing process. She was very insightful and helped me to feel more confident about my work. She was also very friendly which made me feel comfortable when talking about my work. I will be getting in contact with Eva again when I need to work through another essay and would definitely recommend her. »

Doctor in English Literature gives English lessons and Dissertation help in Bristol

Methodology

I have a PhD from the English Department at the University of Southampton and many years of experience teaching English literature, poetry and academic skills (research, writing, referencing, presentation skills, time management, digital resources) to BA and MA students.

My tutorials vary between helping students with homework/assignments and preparing lessons on particular texts/subjects, depending on the student's needs and preferences. I am currently also working as an academic tutor at Bath Spa, where I give tutorials on academic writing and research skills. During these tutorials I help students with all aspects of writing an essay, from finding a suitable topic, developing their research skills, learning how to use online & library resources, planning and structuring an essay, communicating ideas clearly & effectively, improving writing skills, to editing their own work. I can also teach revision skills, dissertation writing and time management.

Background

Apart from my academic teaching experience (see above), I have taught English at a secondary school in the Netherlands and I tutored secondary school students throughout my undergraduate degree in English, German, French, Dutch and History.

In the last year I have tutored six students in English literature, poetry and writing English for professional purposes.

Perfect! I had a productive session working with Eva on two essays. Eva gave me lots of advice on how to improve my work which helped me with the editing process. She was very insightful and helped me to feel more confident about my work. She was also very friendly which made me feel comfortable when talking about my work. I will be getting in contact with Eva again when I need to work through another essay and would definitely recommend her.

Eva's response

Zara was a pleasure to work with, we had a very productive hour together working on two short essays. She was very polite and friendly and open to my suggestions on how to improve her essays.

I've taught alongside Eva on a couple of university courses. She's a great teacher, and always gets on really well with her students. Quite a few would email the department to thank her after their writing tutorials in particular!
