Personal Description:

I hold a PhD in English and Critical Theory, an MA in Victorian Studies, and a BA in History and Sociology, and I have extensive experience in the development of successful reading and writing abilities. My main interests are in English literature, philosophy, religious studies, history, citizenship, sociology, and politics.

I was born in Romania in 1989, and I was adopted as a baby and grew up in the UK. I am sympathetic to cross-cultural experiences and approaches to life.

In person I am organised, flexible, patient, and possess a keen sense of humour.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught undergraduates at De Montfort University and the University of Leicester for three years, and I am accredited by the Higher Education Academy as an Associate Fellow.

I have been tutoring for longer, ranging from face-to-face meetings to assist with coursework assignments and preparation for exams, to online assistance with written assignments.

My PhD engaged literary themes as well as educational ones, and I have been able to use my extensive understanding of English education (in particular) to great effect in my seminars and one-to-one mentoring sessions with students.

Tutoring Approach:

My particular approach to tutoring involves developing your primary experiences with your source material so that your critical abilities spring from a solid foundation. In order to write well, the reading needs to be worked through properly, and then confidence in written work grows from an increasing sense of how the reading has engaged with you on a personal level.

Of course, with help required for written assignments, my approach is to use track changes in Word, focusing on content (if required) as well as structure, punctuation, spelling, and grammar.

Often a mix of face-to-face and online tutoring works well, especially for undergraduate students.

For younger individuals, it may be necessary at the beginning to develop a tutoring plan, which involves clarifying your objectives, and then creating a realistic schedule which can bring you closer to your objectives.
