I base my tuition upon the needs of each student. With English being such a broad and interdisciplinary subject, it is best practice for an initial meeting to gauge the skills that each individual would like to enhance.
Graduating in 2019 from the University of York with an upper second class honours degree (predicted), I have been tutoring throughout my three years at York.
I offer each new student a 30 minute introductory session, where we can outline areas of strengths and weaknesses and make a plan of what we can work on going forward.
