Goldsmiths MA student in Creative Writing & Education offering English tutoring in Greenwich/Lewisham

Methodology

My approach is to create a relaxed working environment, which is conducive to the learning style of the student. In terms of teaching English specifically, I aim to encourage a love for reading and words, and to foster this before delving into the critical analysis required to add deeper meaning to the text and to help the student excel in classroom discussions and essays. I am a strong believer in going through work together and helping the student recognise their own mistakes or realise where they could expand further on their work. The most important thing is to give them the tools to do the work independently, so that they can carry this knowledge into every other lesson and into the future.

Background

I am currently studying for a Masters in Creative Writing & Education at Goldsmiths College, part of the University of London. Up until I began my course I was working as a part-time lecturer in Communications, helping students (aged 17+) to improve their writing, grammar and essay-writing skills. I also work on a freelance basis as a proofreader and journalist. I am newly embarking on work as a private tutor but have a wealth of experience, from holding one-to-one tutorials and support sessions, to going through essays and articles with work experience students to help build up their editing skills.

Carinya's CV

TEACHING
Part-time Lecturer, University of Guyana, Guyana (Jan 2018-Jul 2019)
Working within the Department of Communication Studies, I was responsible for leading three courses across years one, two and three – including setting and marking assignments, giving lectures, conducting seminars and organising guest lectures.

FREELANCE JOURNALISM
I currently contribute to a variety of international outlets, including BBC Latin America, Mongabay.com, Visit Guyana, Visit London, Nataal.com, and Love Productions. Recently, I have also recorded a number of radio pieces for BBC World Service programmes, including The Fifth Floor and Outlook.

I have previously written for The Guardian, Time Out London, ARISE, The Birmingham Post, and others. Articles have ranged from interviews with well-known figures – such as Angelique Kidjo, Boris Johnson, Don Cheadle, Marcus Samuelsson and Richard E. Grant – to features exploring human rights issues, such as water shortages in Ghana, homeless shelters in London, and transgender rights in Guyana.
