About me

My name is Ciara and I am a third year student at the University of Exeter, reading English Literature

I am extremely passionate about Literature and everything that involves from plays, film, history and language to good old-fashioned books themselves. 

I'm considering a career path in teaching in the future and am therefore genuinley interested in tutoring and trying to help students in any way that I can. I will always try and explain things in a creative but clear way and will be sure to tailor my teaching methods to suit each student that I tutor. I am very keen and dedicated. I want to help and will put extra preparation into every session to ensure that they are rewarding and helpful. 

I think the classroom format that MyTutorWeb have adopted is efficient and greatly aids teaching. I tutored GCSE students when I was doing my A-Levels and found it extremely rewarding. I also have a younger sister doing her GCSE's who I tutor English Literature to at home. She is dyslexic and unlike me, does not enjoy reading. However, she does enjoy the texts when I attempt to bring them to life in our tutoring sessions. 

I want to teach well and will put the time and effort into ensuring I am as helpful to my students as I can be. I want them to enjoy literature and be fascinated by History because I really do believe that these subjects enrich our lives

I would also be happy to help with personal statements and scholarship examinations. 

I have an A* in English Literature and History at both the GCSE and A Level standard and I would love to help other students achieve this!

Questions Ciara has answered

How do I write a good introduction and conclusion?

A conclusion should not be a repetition of your introduction. In your introduction you should analyse the key words of the question and establish the points you will discuss in depth in your essay. You should also begin to establish your stance on the question in your introduction. By your conclusion it should be clear what your answer to the question is. You should tie together any loose ends and assert your view on the question.  To ensure your conclusion is different to your introuduction- try to include something new! For example, you could include your personal opinion.

How should you structure an A-level English Literature essay?

One way in which you could structure an essay would be with a diamond structure. This is when your answer begins with your point (your argument- clearly established at the beginning of the essay) progresses to go into depth (the widening of the diamond) before returning to your point again at the end of the essay. Drawing a diamond on your plan before writing an essay could help you to remember this. When returning to the point/ your argument at the end of an essay, you should be approaching it in the light of the depth you have gone into througout the essay. Therefore, the conclusion should not be the same as the introduction. Whilst both the introduction and conclusion highlight your main argument, the introduction establishes it and the conclusion shows how the bulk of your essay has proved it to be true.
