I would be an ideal candidate for the individual who is considering a degree, but who is perhaps unsure as to what direction they'd like to take it. Tutelage would begin with a conversation concerning the student's personal interest in literature and creative writing, meaning future lessons would be dictated by what would suit them best.
For example, if a student was to express an interest in modernist poetry and prose by citing an author like Kerouac, we would organise a lesson plan which would educate them on the Beats movement and its historical context. Each lesson would take a different reading or literary figure as its basis, and the student would be encouraged to submit creative or critical work for review in anticipation. Their development ought to grow not in isolation from, but in hand with their knowledge of the subject, and they should be as eager to redefine a paradigm as to learn from it.
The block of lessons would conclude by examining the contemporary influence of the Beats, an overview of milestone moments in the movement, as well as a review of the materials which the student has produced throughout. At this time, we could discuss what direction they wish future lessons to go.
I graduated from Aberdeen University with a 2:1 in English Literature, Film and Visual Culture. My understanding of what is demanded of a humanities student is acute. For those considering a degree in line with mine, I can illustrate what a brochure for a university cannot; the political foundations of the modern liberal arts degree, and an overview of key moments in literary and film history, with reference to germane readings and films.
Tariffs are not dependent on student skill level. Regarding cancellation of lessons, please provide at least 24 hours notice.
