I am a 23-year-old English teacher with a passion for my subject and a desire to pass this on to others. I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a 2:1 MA (hons) in English Literature and from the University of Edinburgh with a Masters in 'Literature and Modernity: 1900-Present' (Distinction). I am also a member of the PVG scheme and I am happy to show evidence of this prior to our first meeting.
I am experienced in tutoring students at both National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher level. For example, previous tutees have gone from a C pass to an A pass and a fail to a B pass.
I tutored 4 students this academic year (2017-2018) - three of whom achieved A's and one achieved a B. This was at National 5 and Higher level.
Having completed several essays and two dissertations, I have significant experience in essay writing and the analysis of language. These are vital components for the study of English at any level.
I am also happy to proofread any essays/dissertations on my area of expertise that are sent to me outside of tutoring hours.
My approach to tutoring is flexible and will be based on the needs of each individual tutee. This means I can effectively tailor each session to what is required. I like to look over a student's past work so that we can establish a baseline from which to work and improve upon. I aim to strike a balance between the practical skills needed for the exam and to encourage an individual's enthusiasm for English as a subject.
