English Literature and Creative Writing student and IB graduate gives literature and writing lessons to high school and uni students in Adelaide

Methodology

My teaching methods are focused around individual students, first ascertaining what it is that they need to focus on, and working on those areas in a way that is most effective for their learning style and helps them achieve their goals. I often use guided exercises to help a student discover things for themselves, as I find this is the most effective way of cementing knowledge. I ensure that I work with the student at a pace that is best suited to them.

Background

I am a student at the University of Adelaide, currently obtaining my undergraduate degree in English Literature and Creative Writing, having studied in both the UK and Australia, and am working at the average of a High Distinction in both areas. I mentored younger students whilst still at school, and am currently frequently sought out by my peers for advice and feedback on their work.
