Hi! I'm Bryony an experienced Tutor both on MyTutor and with my University. I have recieved excellent feedback in my two years as a tutor for MyTutor, helping students achieve A*s at A level and in many cases raising final grades 2 letters from predictions.
I study English with Study Abroad at Exeter University. This University is 4th in the UK for English 2013/14, the Sunday Times University of the year 2014/15 and a world top 100 University 2015/16.
I have a passion for English, from poetry to prose, and love passing on my knowledge to other people. The great thing about English is there is no wrong answer and your opinions matter, so the online discussion is a great way to help a student develop their own, individual ideas outside of a 'spoon-fed', generic school environment. I tutored my dyslexic brother for his GCSE English, raising his predicted grade two letters.
I'd love to teach you anything to do with English, whether you want help with essays, to learn some new technical words, or just where to start when analysing a text.
Bit more about me:
I was Vice-President of Exeter University Theatre Company (2014/15), which involved helping people improve plays and individual performances. This means I am equally enthusiastic about play-texts (an area most non-actors find daunting) and it would be great to demonstrate how easy it is to conceptualise a play once you know how!
I love travel. I have been on expeditions to Southern India (2012) and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro (2014). I studied at an international university in Japan (2015/16). I'm good at working and communicating with others and would like to show you how you can use personal experiences to form your opinion of a text.
My aim is to you get you involved with what you're studying. This may be through using your own life experiences, as I have done, or by finding out what interests you. English is a very flexible subject, so the session would be engineered to your way of learning, whatever that may be!

The best way to structure an essay is by using PQA - Point, Quote, Analysis. Use this structure and 5 minuntes to plan your essay. Whilst this is annoying it will make for a better essay in the long run. (Remember, quality not quantity!).
Once you have your main points you can get to writing. A big tip is to write your introduction last, as an essay in exam conditions can take many twists. Your introduction should guide the reader. They should know what your essay is going to argue and what themes you are going to use to do so.
A good revision technique is practicing essay questions in timed conditions. A shorther activity is using PQA on a quote. Ask yourself, what point is the quote making? What literary techniques can I point to to exemplify the point that is being made? How can think point be linked to a literary or historical context?
Master this and your essay should slot into place with ease!see more
