About the lesson
Because my parents are Swedish and Danish and I grew up in the USA and France, I am well versed in the literary traditions of different cultures. I believe this sharpens my capacity to perceive ideas from fresh angles, see past the dialectic layers that discourse is often wrapped in.
This aptitude has helped me convey ideas simply and engagingly in the past. For example, when I was assisting my younger siblings to prepare for their A levels, I taught them how to untangle the words in order to get to the heart of the issue. This helped them get a good grasp on the texts, and the confidence that came with that understanding made a clear difference to their writing. This was a hugely satisfying experience for me, and I hope to be able to ignite in as many people as possible an appreciation of and curiosity about literature, languages and ideas.
Since then, I have tutored many people, and I find that the area which I am best at helping with is the structuring, composition and writing of essays, dissertations or articles- whether the topic be philosophical, historical, literary, legal, psychological, sociological or political. If you send me the subject material in advance, when I come to tutor we can begin directly to plan the best way to say what you think should be said. I will contribute constructive criticism, scan the paper for incorrect grammar and sentences that could flow better, and self-contradictory or vague/unfounded ideas.
I am also open to giving lessons via Skype.

I have been giving lessons regularly since January 2017 and have tutored about 30 students now.
I believe I have played a big part in getting two of these students into University, have helped people get higher grades at University/high school and have given others (refugees in Belgrade) the French skills to be able to communicate if they ever get to their desired destination.
Sofie helped me a great deal with my essay writing. She is very patient and understanding, and is always working around my pace so I never feel rushed when I dont understand something. She has gone above and beyond in ensuring I get the most of our sessions, and because of her calm approach and attention to detail, I'm proud to say I got a first in my final assignment.
