About me

I'm a student at Durham University studying English Literature and History.

About my sessions

I aim to structure and tailor the lessons according to the student I am tutoring. It is centred around his/her needs - if they want to focus on essay techniques for English, then I will adjust the material to help them improve their weak areas. Generally speaking, I might structure the lesson by dividing it into two or three sections, depending on the subject.

I aim to structure and tailor the lessons according to the student I am tutoring. It is centred around his/her needs - if they want to focus on essay techniques for English, then I will adjust the material to help them improve their weak areas. Generally speaking, I might structure the lesson by dividing it into two or three sections, depending on the subject. If it is English, for example, I would probably spend a third of the time going over essays that the student has prepared, offering my constructive feedback and ways to boost up the grade, then I would probably go on to discussing in a leisurely manner a certain passage from one of the texts he/she will be tested on. I would probably end the lesson by answering any possible questions that the student has, while also listening to what he/she would like for us to do in the following lessons. Again, as I've said before, I want my lessons to be very student-centred/oriented.


I will prepare for the online lessons by covering the material needed beforehand. This includes reading all the required texts that the student will be tested on, and reading around it to gain a critical opinion from a plethora of critics. I will also prepare specific techniques that I think will be most suitable for every individual student, depending on their needs.
