Personal Description:

I'm a Master student currently completing their MA in English Literature and Language at UCL. I'm an incredibly passionate and enthusiastic English student who loves literature and who is excited to share that passion with my students. I can assist students in English Language or Literature at all levels and I can also help with essay writing.

Tutoring Experience:

I have previously tutored GCSE English Literature and Language and, as a Schools Plus volunteer, I have regularly helped struggling students with their reading skills and comprehension.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to make the sessions compelling and engaging. I aim to help students engage with the text from a place of enjoyment and comprehension while also helping them think critically about its various components.

To help with their critical thinking and reading I often use contemporary or unconventional texts to demonstrate how widely applicable such skills are and to help encourage an enjoyment of textual analysis.

I help my students learn how to structure their ideas and arguments by focusing on their own responses to their set texts. I aim to help with essay writing and exam technique by providing students with simple yet effective essay structures, techniques, and examples while also encouraging independent thinking by engaging with the student's own writing style and interests.
