I'm just about to start my second year studying English Literature at Durham University. I'm an avid reader and I'd love to inspire a love of literature in any students I tutor. I managed to score a rare 45 points in the IB and I'm ready to use all the resources that allowed me to reach the top grades to use in my tutorials.
I love to write in my free time and I'm also an avid artist. I have some experience of teaching from helping my younger siblings with their homework for years. I have also volunteered at a school for severely mentally impaired children and I've worked to promote student welfare campaigns during my time at University.
I'd love for students to lead the tutorials by bringing questions to the sessions and being unafraid to put their ideas out there.
For English/RS successful essay writing and oral examinations depend on students having confidence in their ideas while being able to back them up with evidence. I'd like to focus on this in English/RS based sessions so students can come across with a real flair for the subject.
In our sessions, I'd like to focus on essay planning and going through passages of set texts. I'd like to encourage students to talk about their ideas on texts openly so they are comfortable in oral exams and assessed presentations.
I'd love to tutor IB English students, however, the choice of texts offered by the IB is highly extensive so I'll give a list of the texts that I have studied:
The Spire, William Golding
All My Sons, Arthur Miller
Ghosts, Henrik Ibsen
The Leopard, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa
The Outsider, Albert Camus
An Evil Cradling, Brian Keenan
Selected plays of Harold Pinter
Selected poems by John Donne, Andrew Marvell, John Keats, T.S. Eliot and Carol Ann Duffy
I've encountered more texts since starting university so feel free to message me asking about any works that are not on the list above.
I've been through the toil of writing a personal statement for an English application that captures both one's personality and academic interests. It's far easier said than down so I'd love to offer my guidance to any students in a similar position.
I hope to hear from you soon! Just drop me a message with the areas your struggling with and your exam board.

Firstly we can define immunity as when an individual is no longer affected by a certain pathogen as no symptoms of infection appear when the body is invaded by the pathogen.
Immunity comes from the presence of memory cells in the blood which can detect and react to the presence of a specific antigen to give a much quicker and more vigorous immune response than first exposure. Therefore a large number of antibodies are produced which prevent symptoms from appearing.
A person can gain memory cells via active immunity as a small number of beta cells differentiate into memory cells after the initial exposure to a pathogen.
Passive immunity can be gained by acquiring antibodies from other organisms, an example of this is acquiring maternal antibodies via the placenta during pregnancy.
Immunity can be given by vaccination with exposes individuals to a weakened form of the pathogen to stimulate an immune response that results in memory cells being produced.see more
In complexes the d orbitals are split into two distinct levels, they are not degenerate (of equal energy) as they are in free ions.
The energy difference between the levels corresponds to a particular wavelength or frequency in the visible region of the spectrum.
When light hits the complex, the energy of the corresponding wavelength is absorbed and electrons are excited from the lower energy level of d orbital to the higher level.
The colour that is visible is the complimentary colour to the wavelengths that have been absorbed (e.g Cu2+(aq) appears blue because the complementary wavelengths of light have been absorbed.)
The colour of the complex depends on the energy difference between the d orbitals which in turn depends on several factors: the nature of the transition metal, the oxidation state, the shape of the complex and the nature of the ligand. This explains why different complexes are different colours.see more
