About me

Hi there! My name is Devi and I am a second year English Literature and Japanese undergrad at the University of Manchester. I am a true believer in the staggering importance and beauty of Literature, from the heroic battles in Beowulf to the complex prose of Joyce. My aim in becoming a tutor is to inspire the same wonder in my students. The students who tend to do the best in English Literature are the ones who show a real curiosity when reading, and my role would be to encourage, support and...

Hi there! My name is Devi and I am a second year English Literature and Japanese undergrad at the University of Manchester. I am a true believer in the staggering importance and beauty of Literature, from the heroic battles in Beowulf to the complex prose of Joyce. My aim in becoming a tutor is to inspire the same wonder in my students. The students who tend to do the best in English Literature are the ones who show a real curiosity when reading, and my role would be to encourage, support and guide this curiosity, tempering it with key exam tips and tricks I've learnt along the way.


Literature can be intimidating, and I understand the stress students can feel in the build up to exam season. I can help you really get to grips with your texts with a sharp focus on what the examiners will be looking for, and make sure you are fully prepared when it comes to exam preparation and materials which we will make as we go along.


Outside of the classroom, I am also the Editor in Chief of a new undergraduate academic journal at my University, and spend the vast majority of my time pouring over academic essays or listening to short stories on The New Yorker Fiction Podcast. That is to say, I adore everything about my subject and am looking forward to sharing that passion with you!

About my sessions

In our 15 minute free session, please let me know (1) which texts you are studying, (2) your exam board, (3) key areas you would like to improve on, (4) your time scale (e.g. are you preparing for end of year exams? Is your coursework due in 3 weeks?! etc.) and (5) your overall aims are within the subject (Do you want to push up your current grade? Do you want to understand what Shakespeare was actually saying? etc.). This will help me decide if I am a good fit to help you achieve your goals,...

In our 15 minute free session, please let me know (1) which texts you are studying, (2) your exam board, (3) key areas you would like to improve on, (4) your time scale (e.g. are you preparing for end of year exams? Is your coursework due in 3 weeks?! etc.) and (5) your overall aims are within the subject (Do you want to push up your current grade? Do you want to understand what Shakespeare was actually saying? etc.). This will help me decide if I am a good fit to help you achieve your goals, so it is important I have as much information as possible!


If I am confident that I'm the one for you, I will put together a comprehensive plan based on the information supplied by you. This could include, but certainly will not be limited to, assisted close analysis of useful passages and quotes selected by me, extra reading materials chosen by me to augment your knowledge, creating detailed essay plans and helping you understanding how to structure an essay for maximum marks.


I also genuinely think it is extremely important to create revision materials as you learn. Not only does this further solidify your knowledge and understanding at the time, but will also help you avoid being overwhelmed before your exam. Two birds, one stone! This technique helped me so much when revising, and will be something I will incorporate throughout our sessions.
