About me

Hello! My name is Fisayo and I am a first-year english literature student at Exeter University. Humanities subjects (english literature, history and classical civilisation being the ones I specialise in) are as stimulating as they are thought-provoking because they allow for free interpretation whilst also being extremely technical and rules-based. I help students to find a balance between the two whilst developing their skills in essay writing, exam technique, presentations, debating and mor...

Hello! My name is Fisayo and I am a first-year english literature student at Exeter University. Humanities subjects (english literature, history and classical civilisation being the ones I specialise in) are as stimulating as they are thought-provoking because they allow for free interpretation whilst also being extremely technical and rules-based. I help students to find a balance between the two whilst developing their skills in essay writing, exam technique, presentations, debating and more.


I have experienced being both student and tutor throughout my academic career so my lessons will provide a space for your child to learn and grow in confidence and academics. In sixth form, I was an academic mentor for Classical Civilisation and History. I tutored students weekly and charted their progress as GCSE's approached. Therefore I have tutored one-on-one, and students performed well in their exams due to our joint efforts. I was also an English Literature cluster scholar meaning that I helped teachers in the English department and worked with other scholars to set up and run weekly workshops and student support drop-ins for all students, year 7 to year 13. Therefore I have helped a variety of students with different concerns about their subjects

About my sessions

Every student is different so my lesson plans will vary depending on their academic year, personal goals, exam specifications and so on. Generally the student will come with any work they are struggling with and we can discuss it whether it is homework, an essay question, a presentation or other. I can also provide work.


As humanities subjects are based on complex thinking it is important to encourage the student to share their ideas so we can develop those in the lesson. T...

Every student is different so my lesson plans will vary depending on their academic year, personal goals, exam specifications and so on. Generally the student will come with any work they are struggling with and we can discuss it whether it is homework, an essay question, a presentation or other. I can also provide work.


As humanities subjects are based on complex thinking it is important to encourage the student to share their ideas so we can develop those in the lesson. This will boost their confidence and essay building abilities.


Depending on the student's goals I can read and suggest improvements for their written work, explain concepts that need clarification, help them build essays, work on spelling and grammar, hone exam techniques such as time management, help with revision and much more.


To track progress, the first lesson will focus on finding out what the student is struggling with and all subsequent lessons will be tailored around this. I will do weekly progress checks and look through any written work they have done to see if they are reaching their goals.


Finally, communication is key. Asking the student how they think they are performing and if they understand everything that's being taught is important and I will use this to help structure future online lessons as well. Lessons are about the student and increasing their confidence, and this is my priority.
