Kate is very well-organised, adaptable and has a really good knowledge of many texts that allows me to have a greater understanding of the context of my play. She has helped me to think and analyse more critically of the language features used in a text, which has allowed me to have a better understanding my author's intentions or effect created within the text. Overall, she's one of the best tutors that I've ever had.

Questions Kate has answered

Explain the differences between the synoptic gospels.

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.
