Humanities student offering English literature lessons and, essay help from the Netherlands

Methodology

My approach makes the most of the special role I have as a tutor: friendly towards the person but serious about academic progress in English, a subject which is central to all later things.

Depending on the student’s needs and the direction tuition changes. During our sessions, we will focus on a bespoke programme of study which focuses on filling gaps in knowledge and addressing areas of weakness. This often involves returning to grammar basics and sentence structure or learning literary analysis techniques. Often these small things can be missed in a busy classroom.

I set regular homework, depending on the time available and provide feedback the following session. Tuition is generally an independent course that runs parallel to what is taught at school, but the programme of study can easily be put aside to focus on a school assignment. As the exams approach, we will shift towards exam technique and working through past papers.

Experience

I am a humanities student with a passion for words and language. I was an English literature scholar during secondary school and ran the sixth form's academic journal. Since then, I have founded the first independent student magazine at my university, interned as a copy-writer and edited and proof-read dissertations and thesis' from disciplines outside my own. Everything I do revolves around literature and language.

Elsa helped me with my bachelor's and my LL.M.’s thesis, she also edited a few professional publications of mine. Her editing style does not affect the soul and content of the piece. This ensures that the author's personality comes across well and as intended. She is a versatile editor and can very well edit pieces on all subjects. Although she does not have a background in law, and the pieces she proofread were rather technical, she was fully able to make the edits I needed.

She is a really good editor, I highly recommend.

Elsa has a great eye for the bigger picture. She always helps me tweak the details in a way that makes all the pieces fit together in a way I couldn't have thought of myself.
