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.
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'm an experienced print/online/broadcast journalist and abookworm with background in English. I hold an MA in English Literature and language, where my final assignment was a Creative Writing one, and another MA in Journalism and Mass Communcation. I now freelance as a journalist, travel writer, translator, web content editor and social media manager and have self-published a travel book.
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.
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.
I'm friendly, fun, engaging - and most of all, personal. The passion I have for English shines through to my students. I pride myself on being able to motivate even the most reluctant of students by revitalising books, poems and plays that they previously considered irrelevant. As each student is entirely unique, so is my methodology.
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..
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 name is Tudor and I would be delighted to help you improve your English literature essay writing skills, whatever your aptitude. I am able to help with both GCSE and sixth form. My preffered method of work is through discussing your essays as well as the material it covers.
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.
I'm happy to offer lessons to all ages wishing to learn the English language, or to anyone interested in English literature. In language, I teach language for everyday use, for business use, and any other vocab, as well as grammar. In literature, I can focus on specific periods and movements or give a good general overview of English literature.
I am a 4th year student at Edinburgh University studying an English Literature MA, available to provide lessons for primary and secondary students including GCSE's, Highers/Advanced Highers, AS/A-levels. I believe in a collaborative approach, where the student guides our focus to the areas they want to work on, and I will adapt my approach to make sure your specific needs are met.
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.
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.
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.
My teaching method changes from student to student, as I like to alter my methods to bring out the strengths and interests of each individual. I have many resources at my disposal, including contacts at many schools in Edinburgh.
My teaching method is to engage students with the subject matter by relating it to their lives and encouraging them to strive for more out of a sense of self growth. I approach each topic by emphasising the context of the writer's life, contexts of reception and the language used to elicit effects.
I will work in tandem with my students to help enhance their learning and comprehension of the texts and language they engage with. I will directly use course texts to help students recognize key motifs. I offer classes in test-prep and focused on in-school grade improvement.
I am currently undertaking a PGDE Secondary qualification in English teaching and recently graduated with MA Hons in English Literature. I am happy to tutor all school ages and abilities. Depending on the required focus, close reading, creative writing exercises, essay planning, exam preparation or reading practice can be pursued.
My teaching method is...up to you! Some people prefer to be driven into a very focused approach, whilst others learn better through visual aids and fun activities. I tailor each lesson to a plan and style agreed with the student beforehand.
I am an enthusiastic and experienced tutor offering private lessons in English, geography, and music to all levels, and in other subjects to school level. As a tutor, I am patient, fun, and flexible. Lessons are always driven by the needs of the student - in terms of timetabling, content, and pace - and I am very familiar with the curricula of different courses and subjects.
Because we are all different with different issues, first I want to understand how do you learn and which are issues in order to adapt my teaching to your need. Thanks to my experiences abroad, I developed some original way to improve our learning using new technologies and drama as part of my methodology.
I am a lateral thinker focussed not only on great results but in engendering a fascination and understanding of literature's connection to wider culture. I strive to connect the students' interests with the material they encounter, in order to foster deep and long-lasting connections.
I am a Law graduate who teaches both children and adults from the UK and overseas. I teach foreigners to become fluent in English, and I teach native children to perfect their English. For children, I can work through their homework or/and give them my own homework to better their English skills. For adults, I teach them through joint reading sessions, in-depth conversations and more.
I will give lessons to students studying for GCSEs; AS-levels; A-levels; Highers; and Advanced Highers. I will initially contact you to see precisely what is required for the student, so that I can understand how I can best help.
My first objectives are to make my students to,feel comfortable and to identify any problems that they have with their learning. The second is to personalise learning for my student. For many years, I have also been a teache traine and understand the importance of continued learning on he part of the teacher; this ensures that my mind is always open to cultural and personal differences.
