Personal Description:

My name is Gabriel and I am currently a Single-Honours English student at Bristol University, Churchill Hall. I live abroad (in Ethiopia, due to my dad's job) however I spend most of my time in the West Country. I am very much committed to the course, but I still enjoy playing weekly games for my Hall's football team and writing my own creative material. English hours are not too hefty, so I have plenty of spare time on my hands outside the course, during which I hope to up my living budget. I'm very much down-to-earth and motivated, trying to make the most of university whilst still enjoying myself.

Tutoring Experience:

Whilst I have no official experience as a teacher, I was a mentor for a 13-year-old boy at prep school who was something of a trouble-maker in lessons and needed a bit of guidance from a younger influence. I found our sessions very enjoyable, not just getting to know him but also coming to terms with how the younger mind advances with age and approaches academia. I have never worked through a specific syllabus, but I can very much handle the to-and-fro of literary discourse and facing any one-off problems the student may have faced during the school week.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach would be focused around informal discourse regarding any set-texts or other assignments causing issues. If confusion has arisen in any aspect of the English subject then it can be straight-forwardly sorted in a less stringent manner than perhaps the classroom would offer. I can set work if needs be, however this wouldn't necessarily be written work rather than assigned reading to discuss in the ways one has to analyse literature at a teenage level, namely examining formal concepts whilst also considering the tone and colour of the language. Perhaps also my age would provide a more relaxed setting in which to go over work.
