About me

Hi there! My name is Iman and I'm currently studying English Literature and Spanish at the University of Edinburgh. I've always loved language, and have always been able to pick it up and interpret it relatively easily, especially growing up in such a cultural environment between the UK, Canada and the Middle East.

Hi there! My name is Iman and I'm currently studying English Literature and Spanish at the University of Edinburgh. I've always loved language, and have always been able to pick it up and interpret it relatively easily, especially growing up in such a cultural environment between the UK, Canada and the Middle East. The cross over from loving Spanish language and its cultural/historical assets to English Literature is that there is so much room to expand your knowledge beyond the subject. I am a huge advocate for the importance of context when it comes to literature itself, and I aim to encourage students to realise the significance of researching and reading around the texts they are studying. I love both foreign and English language and literature for this exact reason, the ability to understand where a text originates and how context influences the way its various readers understand it is exactly what contributes to students writing a diplomatic, well balanced essay that demonstrates their knowledge of the subject well. 

I look forward to hearing from you all! 

Best wishes, Iman

About my sessions

I aim to structure my sessions primarily around the students learning style and preferred method of learning. In a classroom environment it is often difficult to cater to everyone’s learning style and pace of learning, and find that students are but not limited to: visual, writing-based, reading-based or lecture-based learners, and will therefore be structuring the sessions around this to ensure students maximise their information retention potential.

I aim to structure my sessions primarily around the students learning style and preferred method of learning. In a classroom environment it is often difficult to cater to everyone’s learning style and pace of learning, and find that students are but not limited to: visual, writing-based, reading-based or lecture-based learners, and will therefore be structuring the sessions around this to ensure students maximise their information retention potential. It is important to start by targeting areas of weakness and concern when encouraging learning, as these ultimately increase their confidence in the subject. I personally struggled with prioritising sub-topics that I was struggling with when studying for my A-levels, so it is important to me to target them as soon as possible so that the student is as confident as possible by the time exam season has come around. Finally, as a firm believer in the benefits of exam practice, I hope to help students familiarise themselves with doing it as a revision technique as opposed to reading the textbook or writing out notes. Writing under timed conditions, especially when doing an English Lit exam, can prove to be detrimental to a students grade despite their academic capabilities, therefore I hope to be able to increase their confidence in doing this by emphasising timed practice essays. 

I look forward to helping make your student experience as easy possible!
