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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 am able to give lessons to standard grade, higher and advanced higher level students in humanities and language subjects. My lesson structure is exam-prep focused guidance. Hoping to use my exam tricks to get you up to an A! i have found in my own experience of sitting exams in school was to write your essay in a way that allows a marker to check the boxes.
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..
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.
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.
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.
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 have a personable approach to teaching which helps my students to feel relaxed during our sessions. I like to challenge students by having them answer their own questions with some prompting and honing their inference skills so they are able to derive answers for themselves.
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.
