English Literature graduate offering tutoring sessions tailored to 11+, GCSE and A Level exams as well as essay writing, reading and comprehension skills.

Methodology

I am willing to teach students of all ages. I've previously taught children with learning disabilities and aided in their basic reading, articulation and comprehension skills. I've voluntarily mentored young adults studying for their 11+ exams and have also helped students with GCSE's and A Levels. I believe learning is very individual, each student has different needs and different learning mechanisms that allow them to progress and develop in any given subject which is why tutoring can be so beneficial. I also understand through experience that given curriculums can be vital to passing exams and that the exam spec. is constantly changing.

Experience

I am an English Literature graduate from Queen Mary's University of London. I have previously taught classes of 15+ students and have been involved in one to one voluntary teaching for over 3 years. I myself have during the course of my academic progression completed 11+, GCSE and A Level exams and fully understand the requirements and skilled needed to excel.

Kimiya's CV

PERSONAL STATEMENT

I am a driven, enthusiastic and capable graduate student seeking demanding full time work to utilise the analytical, linguistic and organisational skills developed throughout my undergraduate degree. I have consistently established myself as a capable, committed and persistent individual and possess strong administrative and communicative skills along with the ability to work productively both independently and with others. I believe that my meticulous written and verbal abilities alongside my essay based degree has prepared me for work in a dynamic and creative space.

Dissertation/ The Dark Age of Neo-Noir: A study of contemporary Middle Eastern Noir Fiction
• Noir is generally associated with classical film noir, produced and debuted in America existing in a “closed” cycle of films from the 1940s to the 1960s. My dissertation carefully considered the definitions surrounding noir and evaluates how Middle Eastern narratives engage intimately in noir narratives and participate in it’s inherent conventions on a fundamental level, rather than simply supplying a location or a backdrop for these narratives to operate within.

Through participating in seminars and discussing and debating both at university and otherwise I am able to communicate clearly and concisely.
