About me

I'm Kate, a PhD student at the University of Cambridge, studying English Literature. I'm an experienced teacher, and hope to give my students some of the love for English Literature that I developed in my time at school! I'm happy to tutor and revise any aspect of English that a student may need help with, from Shakespeare to comprehensions. Alongside helping a student develop their understanding of a text, I'm happy to work on improving the quality of your writing, and your confidence in your work. I'm a dedicated tutor, and patient, even when something might seem difficult! Please feel free to approach me with a subject you would like to tackle, just send a message; or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'- I'll be here to help!

About my sessions

My sessions will be tailored to your needs, whether that means analysing Macbeth scene by scene, or asking wider questions about Renaissance literature. Every student is different, and I'm here to work with you, whether you would find it more helpful to work visually or performatively, through working primarily together or through individual assignments. I will be guided by how you best work, I'm here to make your own work style more effective and steer you towards answering your own questions.

My explanation for this common question would involve recognizing the differences in sources (for which there are several competing theories), decade of writing, and background of the gospel writer. Matthew, for instance, as a Jew focuses more on converting the Jews of contemporary society than Mark, who wrote for a primarily Greek audience. I would continue as to how these differences in writer affected the material written, resulting in the differences - sometimes subtle - between each gospel.

How would you perform a practical criticism of this poem?

Taking the student through a sample poem, here e e cummings' '1a', I would guide them to look at content, form, and images, as well as the concrete nature of the poem. I would then ask them to tease out the interconnections between these facets of the poem. I would encourage a student to think of a number of differing interpretations of the poem, how to combine its aspects, and why it is written in this form.
