Personal Description:

Hello, I am a PhD student in the second year of my doctoral study in the School of English at the University of Leeds. I am educated to Masters level in English Literature and am passionate about enabling students of all ages and backgrounds engage with literature and achieve their full potential.

Tutoring Experience:

While this will be my first formal experience of tutoring I have worked informally with students from a variety of backgrounds in the past. I undertook several placements in secondary schools and sixth forms where I provided support for English Literature and Language students approaching GCSE and A-Level exams. I have also provided one to one support with research skills and academic writing style to a post-graduate student and continue to offer tuition in academic writing to a degree student with English as a second language. I will be taking up a position as a Teaching Assistant within my faculty this academic year.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is a creative and responsive one based around working with each tutee to identify their personal goals and preferred learning style. I aim to create a safe and relaxed environment in which students can work at their own pace in sessions that are challenging and enjoyable. I can offer support with school work, preparation for examinations, including GCSEs and AS/A Levels and general literacy skills including helping to develop confidence in reading and writing.
