About me

My name is Jess and I am a final year student studying Liberal Arts at Durham with English literature as my main focus and German as my minor subject. I am passionate about studying and engaging with literature (in both languages!) and I believe that everyone can enjoy and appreciate literary works. At school I received 10 A* GCSEs along with two As and one A* (English literature) at A level. While preparing for my school exams I gained valuable knowledge about how to maximise the results of...

My name is Jess and I am a final year student studying Liberal Arts at Durham with English literature as my main focus and German as my minor subject. I am passionate about studying and engaging with literature (in both languages!) and I believe that everyone can enjoy and appreciate literary works. At school I received 10 A* GCSEs along with two As and one A* (English literature) at A level. While preparing for my school exams I gained valuable knowledge about how to maximise the results of my hard work and feel confident going into the exam room. I am very keen to pass these skills on to my tutees because I believe that structured and focussed exam preparation is the key to success, even if English doesn't always feel like your favourite subject!

About my sessions

I feel very strongly that, as an English literature tutor, I should have in-depth knowledge of the works that my tutee is studying or preparing for an exam. While in many cases I am familiar with these texts, if a work that I am unfamiliar with does come up I will spend time studying it myself in order to maximise the usefulness of my sessions.

I feel very strongly that, as an English literature tutor, I should have in-depth knowledge of the works that my tutee is studying or preparing for an exam. While in many cases I am familiar with these texts, if a work that I am unfamiliar with does come up I will spend time studying it myself in order to maximise the usefulness of my sessions. As well as revision and exam preparation, I often like to use quite a structured, step-by-step approach to understanding literary works as a whole, and also breaking down particularly difficult areas. Similarly, I find discussing, planning, and writing practice questions especially helpful for increasing confidence and understanding around exam time. I truly believe that anyone can enjoy and become good at reading literature and I therefore aim to make my sessions as exciting and engaging as possible in the hope that my tutees share my passion for literature. I have an excellent track record of improving students' confidence and performance, in particular for the exam boards AQA, Edexcel and CIE.
