About me

Hi there! I'm Priyanka and I'm studying Comparative Literature at King's College London. Literature has always been a passion of mine and I'm excited to help students develop a similar love for the written word. Poetry is something I love and I have been writing and performing my own poetry for a few years now.

Hi there! I'm Priyanka and I'm studying Comparative Literature at King's College London. Literature has always been a passion of mine and I'm excited to help students develop a similar love for the written word. Poetry is something I love and I have been writing and performing my own poetry for a few years now.

Literature allows for a student to gain a critical understanding of language, grammar and syntax by explaining why a certain type of word or sentence structure was used for a particular effect. It combines the knowledge that can be gained from History, Languages and the Sciences into one poem or text, and can contextualise that knowledge in a way that other subjects cannot. For example, a poem about Glass can teach someone the properties of limestone or a play set in 1960s American can allow a student to learn about the Civil Rights Movemement. I am fortunate to be able to learn about new cultures and languages through my degree and it is a privilege that I would like to pass onto my students by helping them see the world anew through the lens of a text.

I would love to be able to aid any student as much as possible in either GCSE English Literature/Language/English and World Literature or A level English Literature. I can also tutor in Psychology GCSE.

I look forward to hearing from you and starting a journey of learning together!

About my sessions

Firstly, I will assess a student and find out what area of the subject they need help in. Once I have done that we can set specific goals together which they feel they would like to work on, for example essay planning or writing a detailed essay in timed conditions. I will then break these down into smaller goals which we can work towards every lesson. For instance if their main concern was not being able write a detailed essay in timed conditions I would ask them to write a a paragraph of an...

Firstly, I will assess a student and find out what area of the subject they need help in. Once I have done that we can set specific goals together which they feel they would like to work on, for example essay planning or writing a detailed essay in timed conditions. I will then break these down into smaller goals which we can work towards every lesson. For instance if their main concern was not being able write a detailed essay in timed conditions I would ask them to write a a paragraph of an essay alongside me. Gradually we will put together paragraphs until they feel confident enough to write the essay on their own. Progress will be measured by the quality of their written work in conjunction to A level or GCSE Assessment Objectives as well as the language used and coherence of assignments.

For information heavy subjects like Psychology, interactive exercises work best like matching-up key terms to definitions or placing dates along a time-line. I would prepare the flash-cards and necessary resources beforehand to use on the Online Whiteboard. I would also prepare homework assignments relating to each session, such as revising the information for a test the following lesson or making their own interactive exercise at home. These would be adjusted according to the student's progress throughout the lesson. Progress would be checked by their retention of terms as well as independent recall ability.
