Fourth year English literature student studying at the University of Exeter with a 1st in all three prior years. Teaching online.

Methodology

My teaching method starts from the student's aims, be that working towards a better essay writing style, coherence and clarity of thought, or an enhanced understanding of a text. The students ideas must be at the forefront of teaching as I do not regularly impart facts but try to draw the student around to finding themes and symbols with guidance. A lesson structure would focus both on wider themes and close reading so that both skills can be sharpened. Goals of assignments and deadlines that a student may externally be working towards can also really help direct a focus of teaching. Finally, feedback on pieces of writing can shape lessons through indicating what may be most beneficial to study for the individual student.

Background

I am a fourth year English literature student at the University of Exeter, having studied one year at the University of Hong Kong. I tutored my peers throughout sixth form and have continued since. This has resulted in their acheiving higher A level results. I have also tutored in Philosophy and Ethics A level, thus enhancing my skills at tutoring essay writing across disciplines to an examinors rubric. I have experience with both medieval and modern texts, ranging from The Canterbury Tales and Sir Mandeville's Travels to The Great Gatsby and Captain Corelli's Mandolin.
