About the lesson
I have graduated university with a First Class honours degree in English. I am currently studying a Masters qualification in English research, in order to later become a doctor and a lecturer in English.Therefore, I have a vast amount of experience in learning, teaching and the subject English. In my opinion, English is a core, significant and enriching subject and one in which I am completely immersed in. I have studied practically all of Shakespeare's plays at university-level, many of the classics and also numerous contemporary pieces of literature. I can also help with literary theory, elements of philosophy and American literature. To see a student comprehend a term, book or device that was previously very confusing to them, provides me with a sense of accomplishment. Therefore, if I was your tutor, I would thoroughly enjoy and value my time towards helping you and your English ability.
My approach to tutoring can be any way you would like it to be, but as a guide...
Firstly, I would begin by asking what areas actually need my help.
Then I would create activities that would be fun, to encourage engagement, as well as academic, to ensure progress at every session.
I would, at times, test them on certain elements to see what has been learnt, but also reward them when they have achieved.
I will also use the 'National Curriculum in England' provided by the 'Department for Education' as a guide to what the student will be assessed on, to ensure consistency.
Furthermore, I hope this suggests that I will be a fair, fun and honest tutor that will support, guide and advise you.
- English Literature
I am already a tutor for one 11-year old boy who struggles to remember what he has been taught in school. I have been through some English areas with him, such as apostrophes, rhymes, imagery, spellings, a few books and key grammatical devices. However, I actually started his tutoring sessions with helping him to tell the time, and now we are discussing how to form an argument when writing an English essay. This portrays that I am willing to teach anything from complex literary theory, for example Feminism, to essentials, such as learning how to read.
