People often think that don't need to study English because they already speak it, especially if it's not a subject they want to pursue past their education. But did you know that when you apply for any college subject or job the primary subjects that the panel will look at are your results in English, Maths, and Science, as these give them an overall idea of your benchmark and may use this to narrow down their candidates? This should show you that English is a very important subject whether you are doing SATs, GCSE, A-Levels or a higher level qualification. English can take you many places, but it can also hold you back if you can't achieve those grades early on.
We can think of countless reasons to pursue studies in English literature or the English language with a private tutor. Whatever your motivation, Coventry has lots of opportunities to offer you and English will make a difference!
‘English studies’ encompass a whole myriad of disciplines - from reading and writing to the spoken word - and keeping on top of all aspects of your English education can be tricky alone, even if it is your native language. For example, do you know what a hyperbole is? Or can you explain what Iambic Pentameter is? These are things you might need to know about as young as GCSE level, so you see English is not a straightforward subject.
It’s no surprise that you’re looking for a private tutor to help you to juggle all aspects of your studies and brush up on weaknesses.
Unlike more scientific subjects, there is no one answer to an English essay question. At GCSE, A level and university level, your response to an essay should demonstrate both your ability to think critically and to structure your thoughts and ideas coherently. It seems strange but you can sometimes get more points for wording your response in a certain way, even if you still get the same conclusion. For instance, ever wondered why you have to compare texts in exams? The examiners want to see how you make connections between two different styles of texts or subjects and how well you articulate your argument.
There is no right or wrong, just better or worse, English studies can be hard to top grades on! That said, a tutor can help you hit the nail on the head when it comes to impressing the examiner and teach you how to get points.
You may want a private tutor to give you more detailed feedback on your essays that you might get in class, identifying your strengths and weaknesses and helping you to progress.
Maybe you struggle with reading comprehension, with analysing texts and identifying themes. You might be looking for someone to help you to ask the right questions so that you can develop your critical thinking skills – a private tutor might be the answer.
Or maybe the exam season is coming and you’re starting to feel the need for some dedicated revision with a knowledgeable teacher or tutor!
There are many reasons why you might be seeking additional support in English studies. In Coventry alone, there are nearly 150 tutors waiting to pass on their knowledge and give you the best start in life, beginning with your English education.
Having a private tutor help you with your English studies can also improve other areas of studies too since critical thinking and other English skills can be transferred to almost every other subject.
Coventry has loads of literary connections, with many writers having been born there, lived there or passed through there and written about their experiences.
One of the most important sites has to be Gosford Green, the site of the third scene of William Shakespeare’s famous play King Richard ii. What's more writer George Eliot (also known as Mary Ann Evans) went to boarding school in Coventry and Charles Dickens visited the city also.
Did you know that you can participate in a literary walk through the sites of Coventry to connect with the city's literary associations?
English is a subject offered by hundreds of establishments across the nation, and Coventry University is home to some excellent degree courses.
Coventry College and a range of Language Schools are also dotted around the city so there are plenty of opportunities to learn English in one way or another, including ESOL and literature.
All these institutions can open plenty of doors and provide you with bucketloads of inspiration for your English Studies, but to obtain a place on courses and truly make the most of them you must have a good fundamental understanding and knowledge of English literature and language.
If you’re worried that you’re a little rusty in certain areas, additional tuition or support could set you on the right path.
Unlike in a group or classroom context, a private tutor can identify your strengths and help you to address your weaknesses. You can choose to see your tutor once a month, once a fortnight, or even twice a week if you want to! With private tuition, your education is personalised.
In brief, private tuition is one of the most efficient ways for you to improve in English.
If you’re in school or university, additional support may be available to you through your institution in the form of study groups or extra time with a teacher after school or at lunch.
You can also look for private tutors in the newspapers, on the internet, through English studies schools, in community centres or on local shop noticeboards. There are so many options that it can be hard to choose which tutor is right for you!
