« JB is generous, and he has a firm intellectual grasp. He is gregarious, quick to see humor, irony, and delight, but he is also quick to recognize and grapple with real-world problems, and circumstances. He appreciates the richness of our dear old mother tongue, and he cinstantly seeks and gains further insight, and understanding. JB had teaching experience while still in high school, and found it to be exhilarating, and was widely admired for his successes. His background. abilities, and interests combine to make one suspect that he is ready to become a remarkably trustworthy tutor.. »

English Literature Student at the University of Kent gives literature and theory lessons to primary or secondary school pupils in Canterbury.

Methodology

I give lessons to anyone who is 18 or younger and is interested in the subject at hand, namely literature or a derivative, such as theory. My pedagogy is classic in form: if the student has specific needs for his school or a certain class I can easily cater to those requirements; if the student wants broader instruction I have different readings, activities, lectures, and assignments I can provide. Reading and writing are the most important parts of learning, and the class would be focus on just that. This may sound inexorably boring, but, being only 20, I know which works of literature enthralled and excited me from when I was 12 to now, and attempt at all costs to introduce and engage the student with brilliant works of literature, theory, and philosophy. Classes would start by me providing a introduction on the topic or the reading, followed by a rigorous dialogue with the student. I am quick to make laugh and will have the utmost fun during this period (this will not detract from the learning.)

Experience

This is my first time giving lessons on Superprof, but I have had extensive experience teaching in high school. In my last year of high school in California, when I was 17-18, I taught a debate class to 14-17 year olds. In the class of 20 students, I lectured and held seminars on philosophy, critical theory, politics, literature, and rhetoric. My students gave encouraging feedback, one going so far as to say they had "learned more about literature, history, politics, and philosophy in my debate class than in any other class." As a teenager, I was trained in rhetoric by a retired rhetorician and English professor, and have since given public lectures at my old university on post-colonial critical theory and Huxley, Nietzsche, and others. The most important part of my teaching, being only 20 years of age, is to have fun. While I was the teacher in my former class and retained that authority, I became good friends with my students and spent much time in productive laughter and excited engagement.

Jesse's CV

I studied Linguistics, Ancient History, Philosophy, and Creative Writing in 2015/2016, and am now studying English Literature and Journalism. A short story of mine, titled 'The Anemoi,' was published last year in London by Fincham Press, and I am currently a contributing editor to the InQuire, where I write on many different topics, but enjoy writing political opinion the most. As I have said, I taught a class in high school and have given a couple public lectures on different subjects related to literature and philosophy.
