Who am I?
I am a law student at Durham University from Poland and the Netherlands. I love to read and write, as well as do creative things, such as make fun and colourful notes to study from. I am an open, enthusiastic and friendly person, who works hard and pushes myself and others to do their best. Throughout my Middle Years Program (a sort of IGCSE) and my International Baccalaureate, I myself received a lot of tips about learning and thoroughly researched methods of self-study, so I would love to share them with you and learn more!
What is my experience?
When I was 16 and 17, I taught English to children in Poland during my holidays, from ages as young as 4 all the way up to 15. I have also tutored my peers during IB for Maths SL. For the final exams, more peers asked me to share with them some of my notes - being colourful and well structured, they helped everyone who read them. Doing my Extended Essay in Business, I am especially familiar with the internal and external parts of the course you will have to focus on. With a final grade of 7 out of 7 for my English Language and Literature HL and Business HL, I am very excited to be able to share my knowledge of the subjects and the exam experience.
How can I help you?
Any books you read, I read. Discussions and tables with literary devices are the best tools to learn for any level of English Language and Literature, so I will be sure to do many of those. Additionally, you will see lots of diagrams, mind maps, maybe even some cartoons from which you will learn everything you need to know about this subject. I can also share with you some of my techniques for writing, note taking and offer you some of my notes from my IB time.
For Business, I have countless notes on exam technique, definitions, business tools and all the things you have to think about. With my help, you will see Business for what it truly is – a very interesting and logical subject, that you will use in your everyday life as well as your future education and career.
Apart from those two subjects I would be more than happy to answer any questions you have about IB, UCAS or your future in general. Again, I am a very open and charismatic person who will do her best to help you get through this busy time. Even if you just want to rant about the subject, teacher or anything at all, I will happily join you there!
If you have any questions whatsoever, please send me a ‘WebMail’ or book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’ (both accessible through MyTutorWeb).
I am very excited to meet and start working with you!

General tips for any language analysis:
- Always go from the macro to the micro – from the context to the little details
- In the introduction identify the type of text, the purpose and audience (see below about the last two)
- Always conclude
- Use as much relevant terminology as you can BUT DON’T USE WORDS YOU DON’T KNOW THE MEANING OF
- During the two last paragraphs (when you get into the micro) try to include the effect of each literary device on the reader – how does it affect the tone? How does it affect the mood? – EXAMINERS LOVE THIS
1. Purpose – what is the purpose of cartoons in general and what is the purpose of this one? (can have more than one)
- Commentary – political or social
- Bringing light on a debatable subject
2. Audience reception – use theories learnt in class or during tutorials
e.g. Hall and Morley
3. Technique – identify one within each and give evidence of them:
a) Artistic Techniques (evidence to look for: caricatures, exaggerated features, symbols)
b) Humor techniques
- Black humor
4. Imagery – within each part, answer the questions by looking at the details of the cartoon
a) People – Who are the people in the cartoon? What are they doing?
b) Objects – What are the physical items included? (include metonyms and symbols)
c) Language – What effect does the writing have? (TONE AND MOOD)see more
- If this question regards the three books you had to read, only compare 2 – it is very difficult to get top marks comparing three and most commonly two will get you just a good a grade or even better
- Know your context – find out background information about the authors of each text – EXAMINERS LOVE THIS (but don’t go overboard)
- Most texts you will be given they will be similar in a thematic way – so that is the first thing you should identify – the examiner has given you these texts for a reason – identify that reason
- After that it all about writing about similarities and differences
Structure after introduction
4. Themes (there could be many so focus on ones which you know most about and can really dig into)
5. Literary devices – e.g. realism, symbolism, irony, foreshadowing, metaphors, repetition
6. Conclusionsee more
+ Efficient information exchange: departments work closely together and communicate with each other to solve issues = enhances productivity and allows quick decision making

- Internal complexity: confusion of who is ones direct supervisor, one may receive different directions about the same thing. Causes division between employees and manager; miscommunication; dissatisfaction of employees
- Internal conflicts: sharing of employees may cause rivalry between managers. Causes hostility in workforce; decrease in productivity
