About me

About Me

Hi I'm Hannah! I study English, Theology and French at University and I love it! In my spare time I enjoy rowing for my college and helping out with a childrens group at my church.

The Sessions

Even though taking exams and learning things is hard, I'm a firm believer that it can be a really rewarding experience, and I'd love to help make that happen for you. I've had lots of experience teaching and tutoring having taught English Language, English Literature and Religious Studies in The Gambia in for 5 months on my gap year.

I'll work hard at finding inventive ways to help you understand tricky subjects and reliable methods to help you remember them! I can fit how we do this around what you find most helpful, and hopefully it will be a fun experience too.

What next?

If you've got any more questions about what we can do, or if you want to know more, drop me a WebMail or we can do a 'Meet the Tutor' session. I look forward to hearing from you!

Hannah is a great tutor. She is tutoring my 13-year-old son in English and he is very happy with her. He says she is very patient and gives him clear guidance. My son definitely seems to be improving his English skills with her!

First of all - don't panic!

Read the poem through once.

Then read it again, underlining any parts that stick out to you. Think about whether you can spot any figures of speech such as metaphors, similes, repetition, alliteration - if you can see them underline them!

Read it through a third time, and make some annotations about these things you have noticed. For example, if there is a metaphor - what is the author comparing to what? What is the effect of this comparison - for example, if a person is being described in the poem, what does the use of the metaphor suggest about the person?

As well as thinking about figures of speech and poetic techniques, it is always helpful to jot down, or at least make sure you understand the message or story of the poem. This is a bit easier - ask yourself questions like 'who is speaking or saying this poem?', 'who/what is about?', 'what happens?', 'is there a message that the author is trying to convey?'.

In terms of then writing your answer, I would suggest using the 'PEED' method (Point, Evidence, Explanation, Development). It makes writing an essay so easy! Each paragraph you write will consist of a Point sentence, an Evidence sentence, an Explanation sentence and a Development sentence.
If you break it down in this way, it will seem much less daunting.


To write your Point sentence, take one of the annotations that you have made on the poem, and try and summarise it's main point in one concise sentence (for e.g. The use of the metaphor in verse 2 comparing the woman's face to a ... suggests she is ... ). Keep this sentence short and consise - there will be time to develop your point later.


Then, for your Evidence sentence, quote whereabouts in the poem you have got this information (e.g. In verse 2, the speaker says "....")

For your Explanation sentence, explain why you think that the evidence means what you said in the Point. (e.g. This suggests that the woman is ... because the comparison links her to .... , suggesting they are similar).

For the Development sentence, try and develop this further to some of the other themes or topics you have noticed in the poem.

Aim to write at least 3 and no more than 5 of these 'PEED' paragraphs about your poem, and you will be on to a winner!
