This is how 2 referees rated Charlotte:
I have graduated university with a First Class honours degree in English. I am currently studying a Masters qualification in English research, in order to later become a doctor and a lecturer in English.Therefore, I have a vast amount of experience in learning, teaching and the subject English. In my opinion, English is a core, significant and enriching subject and one in which I am completely immersed in. I have studied practically all of Shakespeare's plays at university-level, many of the classics and also numerous contemporary pieces of literature. I can also help with literary theory, elements of philosophy and American literature. To see a student comprehend a term, book or device that was previously very confusing to them, provides me with a sense of accomplishment. Therefore, if I was your tutor, I would thoroughly enjoy and value my time towards helping you and your English ability.
I am already a tutor for one 11-year old boy who struggles to remember what he has been taught in school. I have been through some English areas with him, such as apostrophes, rhymes, imagery, spellings, a few books and key grammatical devices. However, I actually started his tutoring sessions with helping him to tell the time, and now we are discussing how to form an argument when writing an English essay. This portrays that I am willing to teach anything from complex literary theory, for example Feminism, to essentials, such as learning how to read.
My approach to tutoring can be any way you would like it to be, but as a guide… Firstly, I would begin by asking what areas actually need my help.
Then I would create activities that would be fun, to encourage engagement, as well as academic, to ensure progress at every session.
I would, at times, test them on certain elements to see what has been learnt, but also reward them when they have achieved.
I will also use the 'National Curriculum in England' provided by the 'Department for Education' as a guide to what the student will be assessed on, to ensure consistency.
Furthermore, I hope this suggests that I will be a fair, fun and honest tutor that will support, guide and advise you.
