Eleanor

Lambeth Tutor

I graduated from Oxford in 2015 with a high 2:1, where I studied French language and literature for four years ( I achieved a First in French oral, grammar and translation among other papers). My speciality is literature.
My current job is working for GQ magazine, Conde Nast, as Senior Staff Writer.

Tutoring Experience

I taught for seven months at a school in Paris last year. I taught students from the age of 10-14 English language, literature and culture. I also tutored some adults and students alongside this. I greatly enjoyed this experience and learnt how to control large groups of students as well as tailor my lessons to some students' specific needs. I gave a lot of help to individual students outside of the classroom, which was always a pleasure. I planned my lessons well in advance and meticulously, yet was able to tweak them on as the lesson went on if adjustments were needed.

Tutoring Approach

I think it is very important to encourage students, rather than to scare them or to put excessive pressure on them. It is important that they enjoy their work as much as possible. I also think lessons must be as tailored to the individual as much as possible, and I am of the opinion that tutors must be able to use their initiative and change a lesson plan on the spot if they see it isn't working for the student. I am determined and ambitious and I like to see students with the same determination.
