About me

Hi I'm Nessa! I am a student at Kings College London studying English Language and Literature. I am incredibly passionate about literature and hope that you will feel the same way after our tutorials. 

My Experience: 

I have been teaching English Language and Literature for close to four years now. I have had a range of students from Primary to A Level. All of the students I have tutored at GCSE have either achieved a A or A* grade. Likewise, my most recent A Level English Literature student was able to jump from a C grade at AS to an A at A Level. 

In regards to the Eleven Plus, I have had a number of successes. I have even tutored some of my students for upwards of three years! My most recent round of students all gained acceptance into the grammar/private schools of their choice. 

I have also taught at an Explore Learning centre.  

What I Can Do for You:

I will provide fun, active sessions which are run by YOU. In the first session we will establish exactly what you are looking for, as well as discussing your strengths and weaknesses. From this I will draw up a personalised teaching plan, where I will cater to your needs in regards to the extracts, worksheets and past exam papers I provide. 

I am incredibly patient and am always willing to go over something that extra time to ensure that you have grasped the concept and are confident enough to write or speak about it. 

University Applications:

I am also available to discuss personal statements and university applications. I understand what a frightening and nerve-wracking process this can be so I am here to ensure that all your written work is produced to the best of your ability and that there are no silly errors! 

What Next?

If you have any further questions please send me a 'WebEmail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'. I always try to respond as quickly as possible. Please include what topic / subject you are struggling with as well as the level and exam board you are taking the examination with. 

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Nessa has answered

Perform a feminist reading of Frida Kahlo's 'The Two Fridas'

The two Frida’s are linked by a shared heart that has been pierced and is bleeding. I read this painting as speaking to the effects that patriarchal institutions have on the way women lead their lives. Kahlo’s tumultuous relationship with Rivera was a productive influence on her art, but here, Frida seems to be mourning for the identity that she possessed before Rivera entered her life. That the Frida on the left, the ‘original’ Frida so to speak that is cutting the artery not only shows that she is physically and emotionally severing herself from her ex-husband, but also from the parts of her identity that she assumed as a result of being with him. It must be stressed that this identity also involved the adoption of some of the traditional signifiers of ‘La Mexicana’, the culturally approved way of functioning for a married, Mexican women of that era. The fact that the blood falls on the Frida on the left demonstrates how Frida’s own personal identity had been shaped by the influence of men. The blood then acts as a metaphor for Frida’s mourning for the ‘original’ signifiers of her identity. Nonetheless, the severing is hopeful. Kahlo is signalling a return to herself, and to speak in Judith Butler’s language, aims to perform her own conception of feminine behaviour.
