This is how 4 referees rated Beth:
Hi there! I'm currently finishing an MSc in Creative Writing, having completed my MA English Literature (Hons) last year with a strong 2:1 grade. I'm the 2015 winner of the Sloan Prize, a prestigious creative writing prize, worth £2000, focusing on Scots dialect. I have been published in several creative writing journals and performed my work in numerous venues.
I have a real passion for helping people who really want to learn; to help people meet their expectations and possibly even exceed them. Currently I work part time as an Additional Needs Playworker, which I find hugely rewarding. I worked with First Year Literature students in the University of Edinburgh's Peer Mentoring scheme, giving advice and mentoring them.
My first teaching role was teaching English as a foreign language in the town of Suceava, Romania. I was there for a month, delivering lessons to classes of 30 children, aged between 9-15.
My MSc in Creative Writing focuses hugely on peer mentoring; working in pairs where we advised and encouraged one another throughout the programme.
I look forward to accepting students of all ages and abilities.
I understand English can be exceptionally challenging at all levels. I have a very patient, relaxed attitude, which I use to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. I want to share my love of the subject with others; inspire others to learn and become passionate about reading and writing like I have done.
I will quickly learn to understand the best teaching style for a student, tailoring each class to what is most needed. This can range from close reading to creative writing, to exam technique and essay structuring.
