English literature student offering lessons in English and Art -- Edinburgh, Oxford or London

Methodology

Assuming a rational and down-to-earth approach is how I try to de-mystify the discipline of Literature. Too often it is taught in schools as overly esoteric and detached from the realities of day-to-day existence. The truth of course is that literature is, above all disciplines, deeply entwined with the human condition; which is something that only became apparent to me in my latter teenage years, completely transforming my relationship with the subject. I help to reveal this more visceral and accessible part of the discipline to my students, greatly improving their results in the process.

Experience

I am currently in the fourth year of my English Literature undergraduate degree at the University of Edinburgh, specialising for my dissertation in Poetry and Critical Theory. I am also a practicing artist and musician and have taught students in English language, literature, art and music both here in the UK and abroad.

Hector 's CV

Education:

Radley College
(I)GCSE: 10 A* including English and Maths

A level: English A*
History: A
Art: A

2016-present: The University of Edinburgh
I am currently entering my final undergraduate year in English Literature.

Work experience:

2016 - Over the summer of 2016 I volunteered with a charity in Ecuador and taught English language to disadvantaged children from Quito. The process was challenging - the ages varied from 5 to 18 - but deeply rewarding, sparking my interest in education.

June – August 2018, Bazar Hostel (Budapest): Whilst working at Bazar Hostel in Hungary I supplemented my income by privately teaching English around the city

Skills:

 Freelance work editing and proofreading University publications.
 I work freelance as a writer; I compiled a hundred page Music Catalogue for Boisdale restaurant
(a top London Jazz venue) and I have had poetry published in independent publications. Words, Words Words, a self-published poetry-art magazine, will be released in the coming weeks.
