I set an initial task, which gives an indication of the student's strengths and weaknesses. I make all my own resources and set weekly homework tasks that test/develop what has been covered in the lesson. Other tasks may be basic research tasks or answering detailed questions on a text.
I teach primarily by small, self-contained 'modules', which ends with an exam styled question. I have a commitment to marking all work so it is returned to the student at the next tutorial. These will be marked using mark schemes provided by the exam board.
I frequently consult the relevant exam board's website, using resources from the websites alongside my own so that the student is acutely aware of what is required of them and what will help them achieve their best in the exam/ on their coursework task.
I am a Durham University graduate with BA (2016; First Class) and MA (2017; Distinction) degrees in English Literature. Since 2017 I have been based in London working on an AHRC-funded PhD at UCL. I pride myself on academic excellence, achieving an 'outstanding' grade in both undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations. My BA dissertation was awarded the Jubilee Prize for best dissertation in the department.
I am also a Postgraduate Teaching Assistant in UCL. Last year, I taught on the first-year 'Narrative Texts' course in the English Literature Degree. This year, I am working in UCL's Writers' Lab, specialising in essay and study skills and research. Furthermore, I spent three years as a Student Ambassador for Durham University, working on their Widening Participation summer schools amongst other outreach activities, and so I am acutely aware of how to help students achieve a place at university.
