I take into account the background and interests of learners, tailoring lessons to suit not only the level of the learner, but also make lessons fun and engaging from the start. The best learning happens when students are enjoying the material and it's relevant to today's world, with current issues and topics at the heart of the lesson.
I believe learning should be fun and informative! I love sharing a good historical anecdote and using a variety of techniques to help learn and memorize. This is useful for all levels, but especially if you find studying just by reading chunks of text hard (like me). I'm not a fan of exams or tests, but short regular quizzes help determine how well you are learning something, so expect those.
My teaching method is based on making sure that the student becomes completely confident on their ability to write a strong and comprehensive analysis, or creative piece. Each student needs to feel that their thoughts and understanding of the world is valid and valued.
I believe learning is best facilitated by engagement and discussion. Each lesson will follow a loose model: For Literature lessons: -A discussion about the primary text being studied. -A short critical reading related to the primary text. -Discussion about the critical reading, and the primary text. For Creative Writing: -A short reading about the topic (ie.
I have just finished my MSc in English Literature and I am looking to share my knowledge and help people at any level: from primary up to undergraduate level. Lesson structure will be totally dependent on your demands and needs. I am easy going and patient, so my approach will be a collaborative.
I approach each topic by getting a grasp on what the students' particular goals are, and then tailor-making our sessions to ensure that we reach them with time to spare! I'm friendly and patient, but I also require discipline from my students. The majority of the students that I have offered tutoring to have been high-school age, but I'm absolutely open to university level tutoring, too.
Hi there! My name is George and I am a recent graduate from University of St Andrews. First of all, what are my academic credentials? I have a 2:1 MA in English Literature as well as 3 A-grade A Levels in English, History and Latin and 11 A*s at GCSE level giving me an excellent understanding of English and the study of literature as well as a good grounding in a variety of academic areas.
My passion for teaching English is undimmed after over forty years experience. I gained my Graduate Teaching Certificate in 1970 and have been involved in developing communication skills ever since, mainly with Secondary School pupils but more recently with adult foreign students.
I hope to be able to benefit senior school students most specifically but I am also open to assisting pre honours University students. My approach to study is thematically based and I believe that from this basis, it is possible to narrow down focus to style and form, and thus come to deconstruct a text.
My teaching method is largely pupil based; I first establish areas that the pupil finds more difficult or would like to improve on. From that point we work together to achieve a goal, be it a certain grade or just a deeper overall understanding of the subject. I tend to work alongside the school syllabus, so that every topic or area can be covered as necessary.
I give lessons to GCSE and A Level students studying for qualifications in English Language and English Literature. I am known for my relaxed yet attentive teaching style, and I understand the importance of creating a safe and open environment with the student in order that academic success can be comfortably attained.
Doctorate in English Literature from Edinburgh University : Shakespeare Studies; Thesis Preparation; Bibliography and Referencing; English Tuition - All Levels; Academic and Historical Research; Adult Literacy; Shakespeare on Film.
Having a bilingual literature background, I believe the road to success in analysis of poetry and understanding of texts is through practice. Nonetheless, there are structures and 'tips and tricks' to be learnt, using which even in stressful conditions one can be ensured to score well.
I am a past A Level English Literature Student who has a passion for Poetry and Creative Writing. I give lessons to those in Secondary School doing their GCSE's and those doing their A Levels. I can help formulate ideas on literary classics and using structured advice and tutorship on poetry and creative writing.
My name is Marianne Wilson, and I am keen to help those with their English studies! Often at school, English can seem confusing, outdated or just plain boring. Through my enthusiasm and excitement, I can ignite an interest and understanding for all forms of literature. I also have a keen eye for detail, and can use this to fix pernickety grammar and language issues.
First of all, I aim to make my students comfortable with the material and with me as tutor/teacher, ensuring they have a solid foundation we can build on to reach their goals. I work with students to identify objectives, encouraging them to aim high but stay realistic.
My teaching method is one to one readings of texts, with a focus on text interpretation, and close reading. Through discussion and debate, I teach how to get through to the subtext, and increase confidence in handling difficult passages. I shall also help structure and give feedback on essays and creative writing.
I believe a good working environment for tutoring is one free of judgement. I prefer to work slowly, crafting each piece of work and the reviewing together. I have been tutoring for 5 years, mostly high school (Higher) students. Close reading practice and essay-writing are the main focuses of my work with students.
My teaching method is to include a range of different activities. I like to approach lessons online as I would teaching in a classroom; modelling, scaffolding, giving examples and making my own content so lessons are lively and engaging. I feel it's important to continually assess students' progress as I teach them so that lessons can be personalised.
Having gained both a Higher A, and Advanced Higher B's both in English and History I feel I will be able to guide anyone from around 1st Year to 6th year students looking to gain some help in this subject. I am a highly visual person so I would love to teach using mind maps and making the learning process as simple and fun as possible.
Hi there! I'm a law student at the University of Edinburgh offering English lessons, including English Literature, to Primary, Secondary and GCSE students. I'm an easy going person with a great passion for sharing my excellent skills and knowledge in the English Language with others.
I believe teaching is all about engagement, and student involvement. I strive to provide you with the knowledge and tools to get and A+ on that assignment, but to solve problems on your own. Lessons will be be instructional, but based on a guided inquiry model. The first 5 - 10 mins will be dedicated to an explanation of the issues and struggles you have encountered with the assignment.
My teaching methodology would revolve around you; I am open to whatever would help you best. I can offer feedback and advice on an essay you are working on, help you plan essays, give you mock-exam questions or we could just brainstorm and discuss a book you are studying.
Hi, I'm an undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh, studying English Literature, French and Arabic. Whether you're struggling with crafting your personal statement or perfecting your coursework, I would love to help! I really enjoy the critical thinking involved in formulating arguments and I find working with students to be a very rewarding and creative process.
I like to have an organised teaching structure, but if it is valuable to go off course a little then that's fine too. I think it's important to identify one's learning style and work mainly with it, i.e kinetic or auditory etc..
Hi! My name is Ieuan and I am a Higher/A Level and university level Tutor based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I have always loved learning, and my skills and experience have given me a passion in helping others learn and achieve their potential.
It depends on the student and on what they want help with. I can help you plan and produce an essay over a few lessons or help you to edit a draft.
My teaching method is online and I can help you with the work you are doing currently e.g. reading essays and explaining ideas and methods that are not understood and give advice that I have used. School doesn't have to be hard and stressful and for these subjects an understanding and solid method of planning are key.
I begin any teaching process by making a student feel comfortable and identifying their weaknesses and strengths, from there we can achieve their goals and (more importantly) attain the required grades. I understand that not every individual has a natural affinity for English as a subject, but I believe that every student is capable of achieving an impressive grade in English.
I am a Final Year Literature student at the University of Edinburgh with a background in Classical and Modern Literature, specialising in contemporary UK based literature studies. I prefer to take a student-led approach to my lessons, establishing in early sessions where the pupil requires the most amount of work to build the strongest foundations for learning.
