Degree: English and Philosophy (Bachelors) - Warwick University
I am an English Literature and Philosophy undergraduate at the University of Warwick. I have a real enthusiasm for my subjects, as well as a genuine interest in instilling that passion in others!
I am approachable and committed, promising to make the most of the 55 minute sessions and cater them to your specific needs and requirements. I have mentored and tutored students previously, for GCSE and A level and feel comfortable tackling whatever difficulties you may be encountering!
The sessions are an opportunity for you to tell me what you want to cover and get to grips with. I like to make the sessions as interactive and enjoyable as possible, so try and let me know what exactly what you have been struggling with - whether that's the content itself or the way you have learnt it!
When booking a session or sending me a WebMail I ask that you let me know what exam board or texts you're studying and what it is that you're struggling with! I want to make sure the sessions are catered for your needs properly.
I look forward to meeting you!

Appropriate use of context is key in making your essay more two dimensional and mature. Context does not simply mean the historical background behind the text you're studying, but the literary environment and societal factors that makes your text the text it is. Simply puncturing your essay with dates and facts is not enough. Only write about the context behind the text if you can comprehensively detail why it is that the context can contribute to the readers understanding of the text. For example, if you were learning about Of Mice and Men you would not simply want to write about the American Dream or the Great Depression, but you would want to show your understanding between those historical factors and the complex relationships, for example, apparent in the novella. In addition, make sure, as detailed above, that you show a widening understanding of context, i.e. not just historical. Perhaps pay attention to the sort of literature or literary movements at the time your text was written.see more
