About me

I am an honors student at the University of Glasgow studying Comparative Literature and Classical Civilisation. I learnt English as a second language and as a result of that really struggled in my first few years at school in the UK. After getting to know the language I started to understand text and how they worked, I paid attention to the structure and form of the texts as well as the influence of context on them, eventually this lead me to achieve some of the top grades in my classes.

I am an honors student at the University of Glasgow studying Comparative Literature and Classical Civilisation. I learnt English as a second language and as a result of that really struggled in my first few years at school in the UK. After getting to know the language I started to understand text and how they worked, I paid attention to the structure and form of the texts as well as the influence of context on them, eventually this lead me to achieve some of the top grades in my classes. I believe that literature is an experience and once you understand all the different components of it you will not only understand the text but know how to write about it. My aim is to help students understand literature and through that developing theirs skills to analyse and interpret texts as well as evaluate the interpretation of others.

About my sessions

For my tutorials I first want to talk tot he student about the issues they are having with their essay writing, as well as looking at their past work and any comments made by teachers in previous assessments. After figuring out the student's weaknesses and strong points, I will try to address the weaknesses through practice and by going over it with the student.

For my tutorials I first want to talk tot he student about the issues they are having with their essay writing, as well as looking at their past work and any comments made by teachers in previous assessments. After figuring out the student's weaknesses and strong points, I will try to address the weaknesses through practice and by going over it with the student. My sessions will first start with looking at a piece of text the student does not understand and then analysing that text with them, looking at context, language, form and structure. Then once the student has a grip on what they are writing about I will plan an essay answer with them. I will then ask them to go away and write a paragraph or two of the planned answer which we will look at in the next session; In that session, I will give them immediate feedback on how things could be improved and what they have done well by looking at the mark schemes, which will hopefully help them the next time they try to write an essay answer. I also aim to tailor my sessions to the demands of each examining body, as I am aware that the marking schemes of each differ slightly. This will help the student achieve their best potential in the exams.

Jowita was very well organised, and willing to provide additional reading resources even outside sessions to help my revision. English literature was my least favourite subject before sessions with Jowita. She helped me realise what I was doing wrong and how to improve, which is very helpful because the english mark schemes are not.
