MA English Literature Graduate gives tutoring to students in English Lit, Lang and related subjects

Methodology

I am a graduate of Edinburgh University where I studied an English Literature MA, and then completed a Masters in Clinical Psychology, specialising in Child Psychology. I am available to provide lessons for primary and secondary students including GCSE's, Highers/Advanced Highers, AS/A-levels.

I believe in a collaborative approach, where the student guides our focus to the areas they want to work on, and I will adapt my approach to make sure your specific needs are met. I will also improve your confidence in your ability, through persistent patience and encouragement.

I really enjoy making things clear, interesting and fun and would love to work with you to get you the best grades you are capable of.

Background

I currently tutor students in English Literature, English Language and other subjects (Psychology, Art and Philosophy & Ethics) on a weekly basis. I have tutored for 3 years now and have always had regular clients. I look forward to meeting you :)

OLIVIA's CV

MA English Literature at The University of Edinburgh (4th year)
4 A* A Levels in English Literature, Religious Studies (Philosophy & Ethics), Art and History
Winner of Sixth Form essay prize

Writer for The Student, University of Edinburgh’s Student Newspaper
• Weekly contributor for the ‘Comment’ and ‘Culture’ sections involving opinion-based articles on current affairs, and reviews of exhibitions and events. This experience has allowed me to hone my analytical writing skills and become used to meeting other deadlines on top of university work.

Intern at The Skinny magazine, Scotland’s leading independent cultural publication.
• I had many roles primarily in marketing such as advertising events on the magazine website, writing events listings, contacting local businesses for advertising requests and compiling spreadsheets of new contacts on excel. I became familiar with working on the ‘back side’ of a website and the processes involved in regularly delivering online content

Set up a blog in Amsterdam named The Amsterdammer.
• I created weekly posts about things to do in the city, and developed my web-design skills, my writing style and learned how to market my blog through other social media channels. I believe this shows my initiative as well as my adaptability, as I undertook this while living abroad and learning a new culture.
