University level English Literature student offering English teaching in Sheffield and Doncaster

Methodology

With primary school students a focus is placed on understanding key concepts within literacy, such as nouns, rhyme, verbs and adjectives. With GCSE students I have previously focused on improving the tutee's skill to close read an extract and pick out stylistic qualities that create a text's meaning.

Background

I'm an undergraduate English student, currently studying at the University of Sheffield. English is a passion of mine and I love utilizing this to aid somebody else's understanding. I have helped tutor GCSE students within my secondary school and I have also volunteered in Word Club, a literacy project within primary schools to help key stage one students improve their reading and writing. My teaching method is to focus on one certain topic per session, ensuring that a deep level of understanding is gained by the tutee. I base my teaching focusing on what the tutee feels they could improve their understanding on and especially focusing on essay technique.
