I have been tutoring for about 7 years. I tutor both English Literature and English language, as well as English as a second language.
Having graduated from Cambridge with a BA Honours Degree in English, I pursued the path of tutoring. This is primarily because I enjoy interacting with young people and imparting knowledge to them. I strongly believe that students can always tap into another area in their learning and release another aspect of their potential when they're really given the opportunity to do so.
My tutoring approach is simple: the student tells me their struggles, we go through the learning styles and and determine the best approach. I allow students to ask as many questions as they want.My goal is not merely for the student to learn and digest information, I also want my students to understand why they're learning what they're learning.
In terms of my expertise in English, I particularly like the Romantic poets: Shelley, Keats, Wordsworth, etc...Additionally, I also like Milton and Shakespeare and a great deal of Carribbean and African literature (Achebe, Soyinka, Brathwaite, etc....)
I hope that, upon reading my profile, you will consider me a suitable tutor for your child.
I have been teaching for nearly a decade and English is my main subject.
I usually let the student tell me what their struggles are and we take it from there.
I am patient with my students. I don't like pressurising them at all.
