About me

Final year English Literature student at Durham University. Though English is my chosen subject, I also have a confident grasp of History and would love to pass on my skills in either subject. Both subjects compliment each other in their shared requirements of an appreciation of context and skill in constructing a convincing argument.

About my sessions

Examinations in both English and History are argument-based so a comfortable grasp of debate will be the most valuable asset students in these subjects can harness; a well-evidenced opinion is the key for those higher grades.

Each session will include discussion of exam technique throughout, and may include analysis of some exam questions,...

Examinations in both English and History are argument-based so a comfortable grasp of debate will be the most valuable asset students in these subjects can harness; a well-evidenced opinion is the key for those higher grades. For example, students will formulate their opinion on certain characters or historical events, and then analyse opposing interpretations to their own view. Each session will include discussion of exam technique throughout, and may include analysis of some exam questions, either written by me or taken from the relevant exam board. The aim of considering exam questions is to build confidence, so that by the end of the session there should be no question they feel is beyond their knowledge.
