Who am I?
My name is Nishad. Or Nish for short. I am an English student in my second year at the University of Exeter. Bit of a bookworm from a young age, I have always had a real passion and love for literature. And as an aspiring teacher, I think MyTutorWeb is the perfect medium to channel my enthusiasm whilst simultaneously helping students with all things literature.
I would describe myself as very patient and friendly. Although I am new to the MyTutorWeb organisation, I am not a stranger to the tutoring scene! I have not only tutored privately/as part of an institution before, I've also worked and helped teach children as an academic and pastoral mentor from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 5 in a variety of schools. Additionally, I help and teach in orphanages in the outskirts of Kathmandu, Nepal as part of a biennial thing. So for me, tutoring is an enriching experience for both students and tutors alike; there's something fantastic in seeing a student get that 'eureka' moment!
From my many tutoring/teaching experiences, there was one fundamental thing that I learnt; students learn information from a variety of manners, namely four: visually, auditorily, read-writing and kinesthetically. So during our sessions, you will guide what we cover, and I will tutor you in the manner that best suits your learning needs; whatever you feel the least confident we'll start with that, be it comprehension to unseen poetry analysis, we will focus on it.
Keeping the sessions tailored around your needs, I will ensure that by the end of the 55 minutes that not only will you know your stuff but be confident as well! We will begin by covering the basics, along with any other problems you are not confident with, whilst keeping the learning process enjoyable. And finally, we will get down to business with nailing down excellent exam techniques to get you chasing those high grades that you deserve!
What do I do now?
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me! Send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet The Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to inform me about your exam board, the relevant texts and what you're struggling with.
I look forward to meeting you!

When it comes to unseen poetry there are many ways to approach the analysis. To begin with it is always best to read it, not once but twice, making sure to underline/note themes, imagery, symbolism and other points of interest.
After you kind of have a good idea of what the poet is trying to convey in the poem, a good technique to use is the P.E.E.
P-oint --> What is the point you're trying to make?
E-vidence --> What line(s) in the poem back up your point? Why?
E-xplain --> How? What effect(s) does it create?
Ultimately, in the exam situation you will obviously be under time constraints. However, fret not, utilising said system alongside an essay plan will help you construct a detailed analysis that will impress any examiner.see more
