English (Foreign Language)
I am a Masters Graduate in English Literature, and have been privately tutoring for the past seven years. I also lecture for Glasgow University, specialising in Victorian Realism, Modernities & the politics of Gender, specifically Feminist Literary Theory & Rhetoric; I achieved my MLitt (postgraduate) with disctinction, I have recently completed a PH.D in Third Wave Feminist Theory (Doctorate). Furthermore, I worked for the SQA for two years and continue to mark for them, both in close reading and critical essay(s), when main diet certification is impending.
The University of Glasgow
November 2010 – Present
Description and Key Achievements:
• Supervise and tutor third, final year and post-graduate Victorian and Modernities classes within the English Literature department.
• Personally tutor a number of students requiring additional communicative and written support and work with 'Dyselxia Action' through the University.
• Liaise with head of department and faculty Dean regarding course content, presentation expectations and enhanced marking criteria under the revised curriculum for excellence guidelines.
• Prepare written and oral exercises in lieu of deadlines and impending examination requirements.
Private tutoring involves teaching students from Standard Grade (now obsolete, replaced with National 5) - Degree level; wide range of SQA resources and past papers available; as well as Shakespeare, Modern, American, Victorian and Romantic paper questions and interpretative strategies; also adept with textual analysis, literary deconstruction, preparation/guidance on close reading requirements and proofreading students' work prior to submission.
**With the impending changes to the education system, particularly in lieu of Cfe (Curriculum for Excellence) expectations, I am currently tutoring a number of client(s) working towards their Nat4/Nat5; additional added value assessment resourcing and preparation material available, particularly for Close Reading practice and the construction of a succinct and pertinent folio, and the expectations of the Nat4/5 presentation**
Higher English has also been subject to a number of refinements for the 2015 certification process, which I am adept with.
With regards to TEFL and ESOL teaching, I am fully qualified to tutor both these qualifications, having gained my own TEFL certification and tutoring ESOL at a business teaching centre in London for a period of just under 12 months.
I am a friendly and approachable person and have found that students are able to be at ease in my company; I maintain consistent contact, through email generally, and keep up to date records of course material and expect students to work to a high level. I am a firm believer that there cannot be a generic approach to teaching student(s), thus a tailored and individual lesson plan, and subsequent trajectory, is much more benefical in my tutoring experience thus-far.
**N.B if a potential client is requiring my tuition, can I ask that they contact me first rather than buying my details through the direct release option. I currently have only a few tuition slots available and would not want to waste a person's time by being unable to tutor at a specific time desired. Thank you**
