Hi! I am an English Literature student at the University of St Andrews currently in my first year. I am friendly, approachable and have a lot of enthusiasm for reading, and equally, writing about literature. Having had previous tutoring experience working with students from the ages of 5-13 I really value the importance of making my lessons fun and engaging for my tutees. English is a subject with opportunities for much discussion, and consequently, one-to-one tutoring is a great way for pupils to discuss their ideas and hopefully, develop a passion for reading and writing about the books they read. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have!

About my sessions

English is a subject that requires a development of ideas and its vital to be able to discuss your interpretations of the text. As such, my lessons are an opportunity for discussion, and in particular, a space to plan essays, consider the structure English essays should follow and analyse the positive aspects of my tutees' work, whilst encouraging further development.

English is a subject that requires a development of ideas and its vital to be able to discuss your interpretations of the text. As such, my lessons are an opportunity for discussion, and in particular, a space to plan essays, consider the structure English essays should follow and analyse the positive aspects of my tutees' work, whilst encouraging further development. I approach my online lessons with a spirit of excitement and a fun atmosphere, but ensure that pupils are achieving their goals through consistent progress and, vitally, backing up their ideas with quotations from the text. For pupils who are working at a primary school level, my main aim is to inspire a love of reading and discussion. Lessons can take many forms and ideally each session is tailored to the student. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions or ask if I am familiar with a certain book that you are studying!
