About me

Hi I'm Rachel, a first year undergraduate who took OCR English Literature at A-level and I very much enjoyed the subject. I am friendly and supportive and am ready to answer any questions you may have. I am currently studying Psychology and I love it a lot, however English Literature is still very much a passion of mine. Outside of my studies I enjoy drawing (which I used in revision as well) playing badminton and eating new and interesting food!

Hi I'm Rachel, a first year undergraduate who took OCR English Literature at A-level and I very much enjoyed the subject. I am friendly and supportive and am ready to answer any questions you may have. I am currently studying Psychology and I love it a lot, however English Literature is still very much a passion of mine. Outside of my studies I enjoy drawing (which I used in revision as well) playing badminton and eating new and interesting food!

I enjoy English Literature because it gives you the freedom to think for yourself and create an argument based on the evidence you find, through your research, into any given text. The subjectivity allows you to approach a text from so many different perspectives and opens your mind to the underlying meaning of language.

Although I did achieve the grades that I wanted it was by no means easy, so I understand the feeling of wanting to give up and losing motivation but don't worry, there's always light at the end of the tunnel you just need to push through! Setting goals and expectations for myself helped me to achieve my grades and allowed me to go to my first choice uni.

My sessions are tailored to the individual and what they in particular struggle with, however I will be sure to cover all bases by going over exam technique, language analysis, planning and revision tips. The sessions will revolve around the syllabus of the course and the assessment objectives. The first meeting will be used to clarify your goals for these sessions and then i can create a schedule for the following sessions in order to reach them. I will set exercises at the end of the session in order to measure your understanding, these may range from reading to practice paragraphs and essays.

An important aspect of encouraging learning is enjoying what you are studying, it may sound cliche but you learn much faster when the task you are doing doesn't feel like work! I will try to make these sessions as enjoyable as possible and switch up activities so that it doesn't feel like the same thing over and over again.
