Personal Description:

I recently received my PhD in English Literature from Trinity College Dublin. I am currently working part-time as an Associate Lecturer, whilst working on my first monograph.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught English Literature at three different universities: Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, and The University of Derby. I have delivered lectures, seminars, and tutorials across a variety of modules, and I have set and graded coursework and exams. I have an award for teaching excellence in Higher Education from CAPSL (The Centre of Academic Practice and Student Learning). Before lecturing, I worked as an LSA at Chaucer School in Canterbury, and part-time as an English Literature tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy working one-on-one and really getting to know how the tutee thinks. It is important to me to inspire the tutee to really care about the work they are doing and to be interested in it beyond the mere dimension of passing the exam (which, in my experience, simultaneously helps to achieve this). I find debating the texts in question extremely beneficial, as asking the tutee searching questions forces them to justify their argument whilst being aware of and arguing against contradictory critical approaches at all times. I enjoy making worsksheets and mind maps for the student that provoke thought, whilst simultaneously setting them homework to produce similar materials of their own. I am happy to read over numerous essay drafts and in the build up to exams I highly encourage timed essays, so that working under time constraints becomes second nature to the student and stress-free.
