I feel it’s important to get myself on the same level as the pupil I am tutoring - I will first get to know where their strengths and weaknesses lie; I.e. grammar, structuring. I will then adapt the following sessions to help them improve on their weaknesses.
In most cases, students will have small grammatical or structural errors, which can be easily identified after one proof read. Therefore, I may only need a session or two to read their work, and forward it back to them - without a call desired.
Otherwise, a great way to build on grammatical and structural capacity for essay writing is going through some close-reading exercises with the pupil and reviewing questions - what was the main concept of the text? Were there words or phrases you didn’t understand? This helps to expand pupil’s literacy capacity, which is a key aspect of forming great essays.
It is also beneficial to go through the basis of the universal essay layout - allowing pupils to recognise what is expected in essay introductions, the main-body paragraphs, and conclusions.
I am currently in second year at University, and specialise in Business Studies. I write essays on a weekly basis as part of my current education; for coursework, assessments and examinations. Essay writing has become second nature to me as I do it so often, and feel I can provide a helping hand for young pupils, preparing them for upcoming examinations and assessments.
I have previous experience tutoring a high school English class, where I assisted children in their comprehension as well as execution of the subject, where they were writing creative storytelling and expressive pieces.
I also received a high A (referred to in English curriculum as an A*) in Scottish Higher English in 2018 - a subject grounded upon the ability to structure and form comprehensible essays.
I recognise it is now, more than ever, important for young people to grasp the concept of essay writing, with massively reduced first-hand support from teachers, due to Coronavirus lockdown. This is why I am offering my services - it’d be my pleasure to help young people academically wherever possible!
Perfect! Nina was very helpful, even though she had a busy schedule but she did an excellent job. Many thanks for the help.
Hamza has been a pleasure to send feedback to.
He reached out and asked for a proofreading of a document for Uni, of which required very little changes & was a very interesting read.
Hope to hear from him again I’m the future!
As a close friend of Nina, it is clear to see that she has a strong desire to help others. Nina is an understanding individual, who is both very friendly and confident - a people’s person. With her strong personality along with the dedicated attitude that she brings towards her studies, it is evident that she will be an excellent tutor.
I have been lucky to meet Nina in one of my classes at University. She is such a lovely and kind person and always helps me by explaining things differently if I do not understand something - I really couldn’t have completed one module without her! She has such a passion for business it really is great to see. I think Nina will go far in the field and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor in any business related topics!
Nina has been a wonderful student. She is a good listener and works very well in a team. She is proactive and dedicated to her work. I am sure she will be dedicated to and motivated by student development, and will be invested in their long-term progress and success.
Nina was a fantastic tutor and spent a lot of time going over certain areas that I didn’t quite understand. She was very thorough and always knew how to reword something to help me understand further. She helped me a lot and her tutoring hugely benefitted me! Cannot recommend her enough!
