MA student offering humanities tutoring with an emphasis on essay technique, critical thinking and argument in Manchester.

Methodology

I am an MA student in Literature, but I have also studied History, Politics, History of Art and Philosophy. I can offer tuition in any of these subjects specifically. Across these disciplines I have learned a number of very useful tools to aid the writing of essays and the formulations of arguments. My lessons help students maximise the effectiveness of the knowledge they have attained at school in their writing. This is an essential skill for exams and coursework at both GCSE and A-level.

I also offer tuition at this level, and also for undergraduates. Lessons will examine content relevant to the specific subject in order to understand and express arguments about that content. For example, a Jacobin speech from the French Revolution for History students, or a poem by Keats for English students. With younger students, a greater emphasis will be placed on building up confidence with the material itself. At A-level, however, I believe placing an emphasis shifts towards gaining confidence with essay writing technique has greater benefits, as it impacts all subject areas. At the end of each lesson a new, model argument will have been made by the pupil. The techniques explored in the creation of this argument are built upon each week.

Experience

My experience ranges from teaching 11+ whilst in 6th form to leading discussion groups at the University of Manchester. I am a confident and friendly person who tries to explain difficult things in as simple a way as possible, and I'm a firm believer that a tutor's success is reliant upon the relationship with the student. This is why I try to tailor all my lessons to the tutee themselves. If you have any further questions do not hesitate to ask.
