English Degree Student Gives English Lessons to Those Aged 14-18 in Torfaen

Methodology

I am an English student currently studying English literature and creative writing at university level. I'm passionate about reading and writing, particularly prose, and feel that the ability to read is a basic human right. I aim to help students study for both their GCSE and A Level qualifications in both Literature and Language, by educating them on certain linguistic techniques, improving spelling and grammar, and showing them how to read between the lines and draw their own conclusions about hidden meanings in written text. I can instruct students how to write comprehensive essays and formulate structures on their own, for anyone who is struggling with extract deciphering and analysing. I am friendly, patient and happy to teach anyone willing to learn! I believe in helping students to develop their own methods into essay reading and writing, rather than telling them how it is done. I can adapt to any exam board and written prose suitable to the student, whatever the scenario. I believe that English is overlooked by so many - but doing well in the subject is ALWAYS an excellent qualification to have.

Experience

While I am new to tutoring, I have always helped friends and family learn how to develop their literary and linguistic skills, such as structuring essays and asking questions about their set pieces to help them make new, intellectual points that will interest the examiners. In school I was trained in peer mentoring so have always known how to address many different students in alternative ways, and helped out younger students with their reading for three years in order to develop their confidence.
