About me

About Me:

I am a English Literature MA student at the University of Bristol, and I did my first degree at Oxford. I love talking about literature and discussing political systems and ideologies - and there's nothing better than sharing this passion with other people.

I am patient and friendly, with a good sense of humour! I coached tennis for several years, and have always helped my little brother out with tricky essays.

The Sessions:

During the sessions, we will focus on whatever will be most useful to you! We can focus on a particular text or topic you are studying for your course, or we can look to go beyond the syllabus, or work on your essay technique - or a mixture of the three!

For English, we will usually focus on short passages, and analyse them together. I'm also happy to work through your essays - we can talk about what works well and work out ways to improve.

I hope the sessions will be enjoyable! A lot can be achieved in 55 minutes, and people earn best when they're enjoying learning! I find English and Politics fascinating, and hopefully you will feel the same!

I have to sit the ELAT/have an Oxbridge English interview. Can you help me?!

Yes! I sat the ELAT (back in 2012) and was successful in my interview for Oxford the same year. They are both pretty nerve-wracking things to have coming up, so I am really happy to talk them through with you, do some ELAT preparation, and give you a practice interview.

What next?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you'd most like help with!

I look forward to meeting you!

Good question! The Gothic has, historically, meant all sorts of things - originally meaning just 'to do with the Goths' (a Germanic tribe), it has been associated with a style of pseudo-medieval architecture and, most importantly for us, a genre or mode of literature.

Gothic literature is characterised by horror and terror, medievalism, and transgression. This can mean transgression in terms of sexuality, gender, social class or norms, or even with nature itself impinging on society. This certainly isn't an exhaustive list, but these are some of the things that we mean when we talk about Gothic literature.
