This is how 2 referees rated Connell:
I am a part time American Studies MRes student at the University of Glasgow. I graduated in 2014 with a first-class BA (Hons) in English and American Literature from Goldsmiths, University of London. I was the recipient for the Gordon Scholarship from the Andrew Hook Centre for American Studies for the academic year 2015-2016, which was awarded based on academic merit and a sample of writing.
Outside of my studies, I play music and am an avid film fan. I also work as a manager in a music venue, facilitating live entertainment and working with a variety of artists in many fields. The combination of my studies and work life means that I am skilled at communicating clearly, and in a friendly manner.
I have experience in working one-to-one with students of various abilities. Following my undergraduate degree I completed work experience at a secondary school in Leicester. This involved assisting students with coursework, leading class activities, as well as planning and delivering lessons. Throughout my sixth form studies I also worked once a week with students in English classes. These experiences were instrumental in providing me with the ability to think on my feet and communicate effectively.
I am extremely flexible in my approach to tutoring, and I believe that there is no catch-all structure as each student will have particular requirements. Nevertheless, I attempt to ascertain the student's strengths and possible areas of improvement. Following this, I can structure tutoring sessions on assessments, general communication, and general approaches to learning, or work through particular writing exercises.
For me, it is important that the tutee feels that they can achieve to the best of their abilities, and I will strive to create a welcoming and positive environment in which this is possible.
