About me

About Me

I'm Kate, a PhD student at the University of Cambridge, studying English Literature.  I'm passionate about all things literary, particularly poetry and the modern novel.  My not-so-secret love is children's literature - my undergraduate dissertation was on the connections between Pullman's His Dark Materials series and Milton's Paradise Lost.  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!

What I Teach

I'm happy to tutor and revise any aspect of English that a student may need help with, from Shakespeare to practical criticism. Alongside helping a student develop their undestanding 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!

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 best work, I'm here to make this more effective and steer you towards answering your own questions.

Questions

Please feel free to approach me with a subject you would like to tackle, just send a 'Webmail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' - I'll be here to help!

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...

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.
