About me

I am an enthusiastic English Literature student at Newcastle University because there is nothing more fascinating to me than delving into a good piece of literature, whether that be a novel, a poem or a play! I also love Psychology as I find learning about the functions of the mind extremely interesting, alongside the subject aiding my critical thinking. Philosophy and Ethics was also a fantastic subject to study as there is so much to learn! The infinite feeling to the subject therefore intr...

I am an enthusiastic English Literature student at Newcastle University because there is nothing more fascinating to me than delving into a good piece of literature, whether that be a novel, a poem or a play! I also love Psychology as I find learning about the functions of the mind extremely interesting, alongside the subject aiding my critical thinking. Philosophy and Ethics was also a fantastic subject to study as there is so much to learn! The infinite feeling to the subject therefore intrigued me and it tied in well with studying Psychology and English. Admittedly I have had ups and downs with exams throughout my education, but I have come out the other side and ended up where I want to be, so I would love to help others do the same! I also had some trouble with applying to University with my personal statement, so this motivates me to help others who may be going through the same. At University I write for the student newspaper, The Courier, as this not only aids my writing skill and style, but it is fun for me and has a social aspect to it. I am also in the yoga society at University as this helps me relax and again has a social aspect to it - like pretty much everything at University! I currently run 2 to 3 times a week with an aim to complete the Great North Run in 2019 to start my final year of University with a bang.

About my sessions

I will help students improve by getting to know them and their preferred study techniques. Personally, I liked writing colourful notes, learning them and practising exam questions. However such techniques aren’t for everyone, so looking at other techniques (like flashcards and bubble maps) and exploring diversity within education is crucial. It is key for the student to provide me with their goals too. These goals must be realistic, however with a tutor, you can push yourself to achieve highe...

I will help students improve by getting to know them and their preferred study techniques. Personally, I liked writing colourful notes, learning them and practising exam questions. However such techniques aren’t for everyone, so looking at other techniques (like flashcards and bubble maps) and exploring diversity within education is crucial. It is key for the student to provide me with their goals too. These goals must be realistic, however with a tutor, you can push yourself to achieve higher than expected, so they are changeable! These goals and working with the student will allow me to identify strengths and weaknesses. Working on weaknesses is paramount to academic success, however, strengths can’t be neglected so I would also expect the student to show off their pre-existing skills to me! I will also ensure that the student is individually catered to in the content and structure of the lesson, as as I mentioned earlier, the diversity in education is huge so it is important to address individual needs. I would also like to stress that communication is vital. If you like something, found something difficult or enjoyed something, I would love to know! This will help me improve your sessions and get to know you, as well as benefit your education and maximise your potential. Lastly, it is important for my students to have a healthy body and mind alongside their studies so hearing what they do outside of study would be great.

Cant recommend Emily enough. After going through my essay last week and going from a low pass to at least a C has given me so much confidence!
