About my sessions

Studying English may seem overwhelming at times - with endless avenues to take when looking at a text and lots to cover during exams. So, I'll structure sessions by focusing on what you want to gain from them and depending on the areas you want to improve on. This may include a focus on exam writing techniques and skills - from time management, to structuring paragraphs, decoding essay questions in order to make your answers as concise as possible, how to tackle introductions and conclusi...

Studying English may seem overwhelming at times - with endless avenues to take when looking at a text and lots to cover during exams. So, I'll structure sessions by focusing on what you want to gain from them and depending on the areas you want to improve on. This may include a focus on exam writing techniques and skills - from time management, to structuring paragraphs, decoding essay questions in order to make your answers as concise as possible, how to tackle introductions and conclusions, as well as close readings and analysis.

When it comes to doing well when writing English essays, a great revision strategy is past paper questions. Getting used to writing under timed conditions will help you gain confidence for when it comes to exam period. A great place to start is planning answers and going through feedback together, as we work towards developing exam and writing techniques that can be applied to any exam question comfortably. Although dependent on my own previous study experience, I would also be happy to revise course content. This includes going over the key information of a certain text. From the plot, characters, context, themes, structure or language, for example.

Nonetheless, I am aware that there is no universal approach to studying, and so my top priority is listening to what my students want and finding out what works best for them.

Amelia is great. My daughter has lost her confidence with her English Lit A Level and Amelia is able to put it into bitesize chunks of learning for her. Amelia definitely has a sound knowledge of English literature, but has the patience to deal with someone who is finding it tricky. We are looking forward to our next few sessions with her!

Amelia engages with the student and makes sure they understand what pieces of literature the student needs to read. The sessions were extremely helpful and I would recommend students to take up a session with Amelia!
