English Literature student offering tutoring in history and English literature in Northumberland

Methodology

I like to teach in a relaxed manner, as I find this is conducive to the personal nature of English literature; how does a piece of writing make the reader feel, and was this the authors intention? When studying at GCSE and A Level, I found that an inductive style of teaching worked best, presenting the student with the necessary tools and allowing them to reach their own conclusions from them.

Experience

I am a 19 year oldstudent studying English literature at the University of York. I am also willing to teach History, having an A level (grade B) in that subject. I have experience in tutoring English lit at GCSE level, to younger boys at my secondary school. I have three A levels, ABB in English Lit, History, and philosophy and Ethics, and 9 GCSEs.
