About me

About Me

I am studying English and Politics (BA) at the University of Exeter. I have always wanted to be a writer, i have spent my time at university writing poetry, music and fiction on top of my academics. I know what makes writing engaging and readable, as well as analytical.

What will sessions be like?

bringing students to conclusions by asking them to think for themselves, not just lecturing but equiping and working alongside to really see students be better essayists and literary critics. 

Sessions will be always positive, well planned and encouraging. The culture will always be one of openness looking to get better. No question is too silly, the session is a space for debate so that students develop their own ideas and opinions and learn to justify them articulately.

What do i specialise in?

During my sessions my aim will be to equip students with techniques to use in their work long-term; such as:

Close reading techniques - analysing the minutae of poetry to find original points which will impress in essays

Essay writing skills - how to create sharp essays. I want to equip students to be the best editors of their work. How can we make editing an enjoyable process? I think an un-edited essay is like a large slab of marble, and the editing process is chipping away at the marble to create a sculpture, it can be a fun process if we approach it as a craft of its own to be learned, rather than a burdensome proof-reading duty. 

I enjoy tutoring students towards a deeper understanding of texts through close analysis. However, one thing i think is important is to understand the text as a whole.
