Oxford undergraduate in English offering English language or literature lessons in Cardiff

Methodology

My teaching methodology varies according to the needs of each pupil. I often tutor one to one, sometimes I tutor in pairs. My preference for small groups has emerged for two reasons; 1) it is easier to perceive weakness and/or areas for improvement in a reduced and more concentrated session, 2) the style of education offered at Oxford has enabled me to directly conceive of the benefits arising out of this style.

In the past, I have recommended that pupils send me what they would like or think they ought to cover during their next session with me. This advance allows me to prepare material which is directly relevant to the kind of questions that they wish either to answer or to discover more about.

If I feel that there are some problems still blatant at the end of that session, I will then organize a lesson plan which will target those issues; identifying why they have arisen and in turn, discovering how they might be overcome.

Overall, I need my pupils to feel comfortable should they be required to communicate their goals or concerns to me. This has never caused me any problems in the past because I am approachable and my experience as Head Girl is a testament to the successful contact I continue to establish with students of a lower age group, who feel passionate about learning.

I have always ensured that my pupils have the equipment to learn and to enjoy learning. The latter is almost always conducive to the former.



Background

I am a student at Oxford University and I have just completed the first year of my degree in English Literature and Language. During Sixth Form, I taught one class (of eight to ten people) English AS during lunchtimes and aided my Spanish teacher who managed most of the language classes throughout key stage three. Everybody in my tutor group achieved a B or above in the first year of their English A Level. Additionally, I have acted as an informal tutor to my sister and brother. Both have recently completed their first and second year of GCSEs.

Details

I am more than happy to travel a distance of 20km+, but should this be the case, a cost for travel will be required.

Grace 's CV

GRACE SHAUGHNESSY
28 Pant Hendre, Pencoed, Bridgend, CF35 6LN · (concealed information)3
(concealed information)

Accommodating, friendly and enthusiastic English literature and language tutor committed to providing learning of the highest standards for pupils of varying abilities. Especially confident with tutoring on a one-to-one basis but open to teaching groups of more considerable sizes. I can read and speak in Spanish with a measure of confidence and fluency. I can offer students a chance to discover literature of a wider, more global variety because of this. I am currently studying for a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and Literature at Merton College, Oxford University. I am passionate about personal discovery and personal investment in literature. My aspiration is to instill these aims into the pupils that I teach.

EXTRACURRICULAR
My passion for learning extends beyond English language and literature. In my free time at Oxford, I attend Spanish lessons. I am conscious of the kind of problems that academic pressures inspire and I am currently being trained as a welfare rep at my college. I hope that this will allow me to advise those who are struggling with stress-related mental illness.
