About me

About Me:

I am a Theatre and Film graduate from the University of Bristol and am currently completing an MPhil in Screen Media and Cultures at the University of Cambridge.  The interdisciplinary nature of both these courses make me a versatile tutor as I have an in-depth knowledge of subjects from English to Drama, Film, Media, and Cultural Theory.

Experience:

I am deeply passionate about the Arts and would love to pass this enthusiasm on to my tutees. I have been a tutor of English since 2013 in France and Mexico and this coming year I will be a teacher of English in New Zealand. I have taught students of varying ages, abilities, and nationalities and am an extremely friendly, outgoing, and patient person.

The Tutorials:

The sessions will be based around you - what you need to know and what skills you would like to improve on. Interpeting texts and forming your own ideas surrounding them is the beauty of English and Media studies. Being confident with your own interpretations can be daunting and so I hope to be able to encourage students in the tutorials to build on their abilities to interpret texts and write indepedently. We can work through language, form, content, and structure together in order to develop your reading and writing skills. I am very flexible and will be keen to work together on any specific problems you are facing, so don't hesitate to ask!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

In what way should I analyse form, structure, and language in my essay?

The most sophisticated way of making sure you integrate form, structure, and language into your essay is to synthesise them. As opposed to writing a paragraph on each element (which can certainly be useful every so often!), try to find ways in which they are related and how there might be a 'cause and effect' relation between two or three of them. Often, form can seem the most arbitrary element or the most difficult to discuss; however, if you aim to find a way in which the form of a text has an impact on, or determines, the way it is structured or written, this can provide a strong introduction to a more detailed structural or linguistic analysis. For example, the form of a letter determines the address of the writing (direct, informal) or the form of a poem affects structural elements such as syntax and visual presentation. Another interesting way to find original interpretations of the three elements and synthesise them is to consider readership and analyse how the components work to create a specific impression on the reader; for instance, the form of a novel may allow the writer to use heavy description which, in turn, aligns the reader with the protagonist and encourages sympathy with them.
