I will work closely with my students to work to a plan that best suits their learning abilities and preferences. I will be open minded to various ways of teaching: from visual learning, discussions, essay marking and proof reading to preparing useful spider-diagrams and bullet points for the particular topic! I will help students to achieve their goals through offering constructive criticism and advice, offering them new insights to English literature and ways in which they themselves can think differently and creatively about the texts they are studying. Lessons will be informal and comfortable, whilst remaining structured in order to bring out the best in each student.
