About me

About me:

I'm a history student at King's College London. I love anything to do with History as well as having a passion for English literature and English language and I think my tutorials will help you learn to love these subjects too! I also hugely enjoy French and would love to help with written exams, oral exams or listening exams.

I'm very friendly, I've worked at summer camps teaching outdoors experiences with children as young as 5 all the way up to 16. I enjoy long distance running, often for charity, which means I'm incredibly patient too!

About the sessions:

In subjects like History, English Literature and English Language, it's hard to get to grips with where to start. That's why each session will be personal to you! I'll use all sorts of ways of explaining concepts, until you'll be so confident in it that you can explain it to me! 

Obviously the sessions will be fun! We can talk about a lot of ideas and techniques in 55 minutes, History, English and French are super-enjoyable subjects and even if you don't think that now, you'll know what I mean by the end of the session!

Discuss the role of foreshadowing in Of Mice and men.

There's many instances of foreshadowing in the novella, most of the scenes point towards the tragic ending. Steinbeck frequently hints towards the climax of the novella through his use of dialogue. George instructs Lennie to 'hide out in the bush' should there be any trouble, telling the readi...

There's many instances of foreshadowing in the novella, most of the scenes point towards the tragic ending. Steinbeck frequently hints towards the climax of the novella through his use of dialogue. George instructs Lennie to 'hide out in the bush' should there be any trouble, telling the reading that this is a likely possibility. Furthermore Carlson's use of emotive language when referring to the shooting of his dog foreshadows the emotive language George uses before shooting Lennie. Moreover Carlson wishes he had shot his dog himself rather than having had Curly do it for him, foreshadowing George's decision to shoot Lennie himself rather than allow Cruly's mob to do it.

Introductions are your essay 'in a nutshell'. You want to briefly answer the question without going into too much detail. You should set up the structrue of your essay in the introduction, mention your points in the order you're going to talk about them. You should also try not to mention anything too specific -you don't want to give away the good stuff too early!

There are 4 really good factors to talk about when thinking about why Johnson chose to escalate the conflict in Vietnam. 

1. The most important factor is containing communism - making sure that communism didnt spread to nearby countries was really important to Kennedy and Johnson, so they believed their best chance to stop communsm was in Vietnam.

2.The second most important factor was a desire to look strong on Kennedy's part, as a new president (and a young one at that!) Kennedy needed a good victory to show that he was a worthy successor to Eisenhower - a president known for his strength.

3. The third factor is Johnson's continuation of Kennedy's legacy. Following Kennedy's assassination Johnson had a political obligation to pursue the same foreign policy as Kennedy.

4. Finally, Kennedy's advisers were convinced by the Domino Theory -  and were commonly known as Hawks for their aggressive attitude towards foreign policy.
