About me

Hello!

I'm Charlotte, a 3rd year English and History undergraduate at the University of Nottingham. When I'm not writing essays I like to spend time singing with various musical societies, and watching back-to-back Disney films or entire series of Friends. I value patience and honesty, and I will act primarily as a mentor, prompt or guide, rather than as a ‘teacher’ in the strictest sense.

Help me to help you

I believe that every student is an individual, with different needs and interests, so I will start every session by asking what you want to get out of it. With History or English I will encourage you to find your own voice, your own answers to the questions that seem black and white or unanswerable, so that you can realise your potential. With French or German, I will clarify any grammar, spelling or translation issues that you have, and I will help you to develop your arguments and understanding of the key topics on your course. I can also offer advice regarding personal statements and the ELAT admissions test, having succeeded at both myself, and having given advice on several occasions in person.

Collaboration

I hope that you will enjoy sessions with me, as I will be constantly seeking to affirm your assurance of your abilities. I will work with you until you feel comfortable and confident working for yourself. I will not be responsible for the grades you achieve: the credit and success will be wholly yours.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Questions Charlotte has answered

How can I get a good grade if I just don't understand German grammar?

Check the mark scheme - when I did my A level, most of the marks were for content rather than accuracy. If the grammar rules are just not making any sense, focus on the actual points that you want to make, and learn by heart some key phrases that have impressive vocabulary and grammatical stru...

Check the mark scheme - when I did my A level, most of the marks were for content rather than accuracy. If the grammar rules are just not making any sense, focus on the actual points that you want to make, and learn by heart some key phrases that have impressive vocabulary and grammatical structure. By including these in written or spoken assessments, you will improve your content mark and give yourself a wider margin for error in the grammar sections.

How can I improve my speaking skills?

The best way is simply to practice. If a student is uncomfortable speaking French to (or, indeed, at) their friends and family, they could just spend a few minutes, before getting up in the morning, to say aloud some mundane sentences about what they will be doing later that day. Likewise, before going to sleep they could relate some of the things they have done. This is a great technique for spontaneously forming sentences in the past and future tenses.

Creative transformational coursework is a form of assessment that involves writing in the style of an author whose work you have studied. For example, a student may write an extra chapter for an Austen novel, recounting an event which is only referenced through a letter; or write a poem that could be added to a collection by Keats, Hardy, Plath or Duffy. The purpose of such tasks is to actively engage the student in deep stylistic analysis of the author's works, because in replicating the author's techniques of language, form and structure, the student will be more able and confident to comment on such 'clinical' aspects of the unseen texts in the exam.
