About me

About Me:

I am an English student at the University of Exeter. I didnt use to like  reading but it was my teachers who gave me the passion and love for analysing books and opened my eyes to the beauty of literature. I enjoy thinking about concepts and ideas across a variety of subjects and I hope that my tutorials will instill that same love in you, too.

I am very patient and friendly. I have been teaching karate since I was 12, so have a lot of experience teaching, with people as young as 5 years old. i haven't had any paid tutoring experience but have helped many of my friends with their essay writing, giving them basic techniques which they said were life-savers in the exam!

The Sessions

During the sessions, you will guide what we cover. Essay-based subjects are all about expressing a personal voice, I am simply here to help materialise that voice in an effective and mark-grabbing way. 

I will explain key themes and ideas until you are confident enough that you can explain it to me. If you're feeling really confident I will provide some scholars critical analysis and advanced concepts to put your essay that one step ahead of the rest. But my initial aim will be to help you feel comfortable in the exam and to have a clear structure in mind to tackle any question with.

I hope the sessions will be fun! A lot can be achieved in 55mins especially if it is made enjoyable - Humanties are amazing and hopefully, if you didn’t think that before, you will by the end of the session!

I'm applying to university.. Can you help me?!

Yes! The horror of that dreaded UCAS application can be incredibly daunting. As an English student I have a few skills that can help you to write effectively and have seen which kind of personal statements work and which ones really don't! Hopefully I can help you to get the passion you have for your chosen subject across in a unique and eye-catching way!

What next?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you!

How do I use my Science skills to do well in English essays?!

At first, it seems ridiculous to think that you could possibly use your science or maths ability to your advantage in English. However, what many students don't realise is that at GCSE, and even A-level to an extent, there is a marking criteria just like in your Science or Maths exams and if you do what the criteria asks, then the examiner HAS to give you the marks! 

Obviously across different exam boards this criteria will vary slightly. The four main things that you must put in your essays however, are as follows:

1. Answer the question! Showing an understanding of the question and making sure you don't drift off is the main thing markers care about. It's so simple it's one people tend to miss! Structure your essay well and get that spelling and grammar down and you'll be fine.

2. Language, form and structure analysis. Using the simple Point Evidence Analysis (or PEA) technique, this box can be easily ticked.

3. Opinions. Your opinion on what the text means and critics opinion on things are fab and easy marks. Here is the "there is no right or wrong answer" bit. Say what you think it means and 90% of the time you'll get it right. Easy marks.

4. Context. Understanding the text in relation to it's own era. Remember what period of time the author was writing in and how this will shape the text. How would readers at the time respond?

So there you go! 4 boxes to tick. Do all 4 above and the marker has to give you some high flying marks. Obviously, how effectively you do the four things above is the tricky bit, but that's what your tutor is for! People who are good at Science and Maths tend to think logically and analytically. They also tend to be good at remembering lots of facts; think of quotes from the text and critic quotes as the fact, and think of three analysis as how the fact works. Hopefully seeing that English essays aren't as messy and random as you thought they were will help! 

So use your Science brains to get one over on those bookworms!
