About me

Hi! I’m Alice and I’m studying a degree in English Literature and Language at the University of Nottingham. I have a passion for English- whether that includes having my nose in a book, learning Old Norse (the language of the Vikings), analysing texts but also writing my own short stories and poems among many other things. I have experience with exams achieving all As and A*s at GCSE but also studying 4 A levels and doing the ELAT (English Literature Admissions Test) which gained me an interv...

Hi! I’m Alice and I’m studying a degree in English Literature and Language at the University of Nottingham. I have a passion for English- whether that includes having my nose in a book, learning Old Norse (the language of the Vikings), analysing texts but also writing my own short stories and poems among many other things. I have experience with exams achieving all As and A*s at GCSE but also studying 4 A levels and doing the ELAT (English Literature Admissions Test) which gained me an interview at Oxford. I also have a TEFL qualification (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and have experience delivering English lessons to Spanish and Italian students from the The School of English. I don't only have my nose in a book and I can often be found playing violin at orchestra, singing in the choir or swimming at the local pool. I hope for my love of English to help enable students with their own studies, helping them improve and (hopefully) enjoy themselves simultaneously.

About my sessions

Initially I will have an introduction lesson where we learn a little about each other before identifying target areas for improvement. I will create exercises for the next lesson, be it on how to structure an essay, how to analyse a poem, exam technique, grammar revision, English language terminology or anything else that needs improvement. I will give students time in the lesson to look at the exercises I give them and form their own ideas before we work through it together. I will always be...

Initially I will have an introduction lesson where we learn a little about each other before identifying target areas for improvement. I will create exercises for the next lesson, be it on how to structure an essay, how to analyse a poem, exam technique, grammar revision, English language terminology or anything else that needs improvement. I will give students time in the lesson to look at the exercises I give them and form their own ideas before we work through it together. I will always be encouraging and students will always be given positive feedback as well as things to improve. As we progress I may then create example exam questions which I will mark to assess the student’s improvement. Practice makes perfect and if wanted I will set mini homework tasks for us to look at during the lesson, so we can evaluate it together and help the student improve it. I’d love for my passion for learning to extend to my students, not only increasing their literacy and language skills but also their confidence and pride in themselves for their progress and achievements.
