About me

I’m Tilly, an English Literature and Language student, and I study at New College at the University of Oxford. I love my degree, and the way it allows me to explore so many aspects of historical culture through literature - it’s not just the language, it’s the history, art, philosophy and politics of an ear that’s reflected in a literary text.

I’m Tilly, an English Literature and Language student, and I study at New College at the University of Oxford. I love my degree, and the way it allows me to explore so many aspects of historical culture through literature - it’s not just the language, it’s the history, art, philosophy and politics of an ear that’s reflected in a literary text. Through tutoring, I hope to help students share my love of English Literature and the other humanities subjects that I am able to tutor. I’ve also studied to a high level, French language and literature, early modern and modern History and macro and micro Economics. This wide knowledge of literature and languages will inform my tutoring ability, allowing me to help students gain wider cultural knowledge which will help them in exams and beyond.

About my sessions

My lessons will be structured on an individual basis, dependent on the curriculum level, and subject that the student wishes to have tutoring in. For a higher level (GCSE, A-Level and ELAT), I can write essay questions, mark essays and essay plans, and walk students through an understanding of any text they need help with, in particular for literature based exams.

My lessons will be structured on an individual basis, dependent on the curriculum level, and subject that the student wishes to have tutoring in. For a higher level (GCSE, A-Level and ELAT), I can write essay questions, mark essays and essay plans, and walk students through an understanding of any text they need help with, in particular for literature based exams. For a less essay-focused subject or level, I can set shorter questions based on the curriculum in order to help understanding of grammar and language rules. I can explain the mark scheme points necessary to get the highest marks in exams. I will measure progress through regular checks with marked work to ensure meeting goals, and consistently ensuring understanding of the work set. It’s important to regularly go over work previously covered to make sure of memory of the material.
