About me

I am an English Literature student at Exeter University, and I am about to start my final year here. I have always loved reading and analysying texts, so am excited to inspire you too. I do realise that literature can sometimes be a bit daunting and quite criptic, so don't worry if you find it a bit of a struggle! I am easy-going and patient, and I used to volunteer with Girlguiding UK so have experience as a leader. 

About my sessions

 During the sessions, I am happy to cater to your needs. If you need guidance with textual themes, help with essay questions, or are just struggling with analysing a poem for class, then I can help. You let me know what you would like to focus on and we can go from there. ​If you don't understand something the first time around then just let me know and I will be happy to explain as many times as you need!  What now? Book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! or send me a 'WebMail' if you would be interested in using me as a tutor, or if you have any questions. Just tell me the books or poems you will be studying and any concerns that you have about your studies. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

In order to close read a poem, I would recommend reading the poem over a few times, and to start with highlighting anything that stands out to you. This could include alliteration, capitalisation of words, unusual punctuation and similes or metaphors; making notes around the edge of the page can be useful when doing this, and will help you with a consideration of themes. With poetry, word placement at the beginning or end of a sentence is often used to emphasise a word, so consider what the poet is trying to draw your attention to. A good way to approach a tricky poem is to ask yourself how it makes you feel. Is it a sad or a happy poem, or is it a bit of both? Once you get the general gist of a poem, you can start considering things such as the rhyme scheme, as this is just as important as the content. If the poem has an irregular rhyme scheme (having rhymes but not in an obvious pattern), it might mean that the poet is trying to emphasise the words that do rhyme, for example. Poems can be very difficult, but if you take your time and take them line by line then they are a lot more manageble!
