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.

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 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.

Questions Priyanka has answered

How do you revise for Classics?

Classics can often be seen as a very do-it-yourself subject, which can be extremely daunting with the amount of information you have to learn. The best method to revise Classics for me was to use a combination of methods to cement the knowledge into my brain. For example, if you have to revise an Ancient Greek tragedy or comedy, you could write a quick summary of what you know of the plot. Then from that re-read the book and fill in the blanks until you know the plot very well. Pick certain scenes that you feel are the most important for certain characters or themes and then annotate them with analysis. Do character and scene summaries for each play, and then write yourself questions to test yourself every week. If you have to revise Ancient Roman history I would highly recommend the podcast ‘History of Rome’ on Spotify. Test yourself and see how much you know while listening to the podcast. And if not, write down what you don’t know. Draw up a timeline from 1AD – 27BC and stick it on your wall. Write down the events you need to remember on post-it notes and stick them across the timeline to test yourself on dates. If you have to revise Roman Houses or The Forum or any type of architectural structure, you could do something similar. Print out pictures of the floor plans and cut them up into squares, then try to re-arrange them into the correct order and write a summary of each room on the back. If you have to revise Ancient Literature such as the Iliad or the Odyssey, and are using the Penguin versions, I highly recommend reading the sections at the front of the books. They’re extremely helpful summaries which will help to cement what you know and give you more ideas for essays. Be sure to print out a glossary of terms if your exam board has given you one and use flash cards to learn those. Listen to audiobooks of the specific books you need to learn and write down events under the themes/characters you need to know. Work in conjunction to the syllabus given, but make overall make learning and revision fun!

What is the difference between the null hypothesis, alternate hypothesis, directional hypothesis and non-directional hypothesis?

A hypothesis is a statement about the relationship between two variables (usually, the IV and the DV). The statement must usually also be operationalised or 'testable', which is another way of saying made more specific so that the researcher knows exactly how to go about studying the relationship between the two variables based on. A null hypothesis is an assumption of no relationship between the two variables, hence 'null', e.g. There is no relationship between [IV] and [DV]. This is the hypothesis that the researcher will attempt to reject by disproving it, thus approving the alternate hypothesis.An alternate hypothesis (also called an experimental hypothesis) is what you'd assume to be a hypothesis normally. It's called the 'alternate' hypothesis because it acts as the alternative to the null hypothesis, e.g. There is a positive correlation between ___ and ___. A directional/non-directional hypothesis is a more specified version of the alternate hypothesis. A directional hypothesis notes the direction in which the predicted difference or relationship between the variables will go e.g. Group A will be significantly better/worse than Group B in Activity A. A non directional hypothesis simply predicts there will be a difference between the variables without specifying its direction e.g. There will be a difference between Group A and Group B in Activity A.A hypothesis is a statement about the relationship between two variables (usually, the IV and the DV).
