Post-graduate 19th Century literature student offering English/Literature and Humanities lessons in London!

Methodology

Every child can improve in any subject, as long as I find the right techniques to help them understand the subject. There has to be a balance between enjoying/being interested in a subject, as well as completing assessments to a good standard.

I have had students in the past who either: enjoy their subject, but are struggling with exam technique; or don't enjoy the subject and are working at an average level, aiming to raise their grades as high as possible.

My general approach of understanding how the student thinks, before tailoring a long term plan for their tuition, has so far been a source of my tutoring success. Students often have a good knowledge of their subject (more so than they usually think), and the ideas and techniques for study are already innate within them - I help to bring them out and fill in any gaps in their knowledge/methods in order to bring the best out of them.

Experience

In the past, I have tutored in Maths, Science, English, and History up to GCSE level privately - students have gone on to succeed and achieve at least one grade higher in their exams.

I specialise in tutoring English Language and Literature, as well as other humanities subjects up to A Level (English up to Undergraduate level), with a particular focus on essay writing. I have usually worked as a long-term tutor for students to mentor them in all aspects of student life, alongside helping them achieve their desired results.

A previous student is now at Cambridge studying Medicine, with whom I worked on A Level exam prep and university admissions. Currently, I am tutoring in English Language and Literature for students who want to better understand the subjects and achieve the highest possible grade in their GCSEs.

Yasmin's CV

I have been privately tutoring through one-to-one sessions since 2012, mostly in English (up to A Level) but also in other humanities subjects. I am also currently a second-year MA student at Birkbeck on the Victorian Studies course, where I am working at Distinction level; I am, therefore, well-equipped and experienced to help students in English Language/Literature up to Undergraduate level. My long term goal is to complete a PhD in Nineteenth Century Literature, and subsequently pursue a career in academic research and teaching.
