Recent English Literature graduate offering individual or group English lessons in Glasgow for any age

Methodology

For under 16s, I base my lessons on age appropriate novels, occasionally poetry and plays, which we either read together or are set as homework given my student's time constraints. I'm very flexible and try to work with the routines and learning suited to my students and so I model lessons on their current needs and frequently ask for evaluation. For older students, we work on the specifics of what they need and with the texts on their curriculums or satellite texts. I help plan essays and can proof/mark them.

Background

I'm a freelance writer, proofreader and activist who recently graduated from the University of Glasgow with a first class degree. I have been tutoring since 2011 and have tutored students from the age of 7 to their final years of an undergraduate degree.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £20/h

Details

Lessons can be cancelled up to 24 hours before for no cost. If students have to cancel within 24 hours, I charge half the price of the lesson. If students fail to show for a lesson with no warning, I charge full price for the missed lesson.

Angus

Extremely crisp presentation style and a real flair for distilling complex ideas down to their key elements. I have seen Trudy give presentations in a professional context and have every confidence this would translate seamlessly to her tutoring work.

Martin

Trudy is an amazing teacher, who has helped me to reach a new depth of reading and majorly improve my use of the English language. Thanks to her insightful feedback many of my essays and my undergrad dissertation reached new quality levels. She is also a kind and supportive personality and will give you fresh confidence for whatever challenges you are heading towards. Trudy has enabled me to reach my full potential during my English studies, and if you aim to accelerate in English Literature and/or Language yourself, you should get in touch with her.

P
Phoebe

Trudy helped me to edit my dissertation in English Literature at the University of Glasgow. She comes up with thoughtful, constructive and honest criticism which really helped me to improve my work and see it from different angles. She is friendly and sincere, and I am sure that she would make an excellent teacher or workshop leader.

L
Lovisa

Trudy was responsible for recruiting and coordinating speakers for TEDxUniversityOfGlasgow 2018. As a member of her team, I watched her work tirelessly to help polish and restructure the featured talks, offering advice on everything from the overall argument's flow to technical linguistic details. Very personable and professional.

Kate

A excellent tutor with a sound grasp of literary theory and a genuinely inspirational enthusiasm for English Literature. She excels in breaking down complex concepts to make them easier to understand. Highly reccomended!
