About me

About Alexandra I am a MA Medieval Studies student at The University of Exeter. I study the literature, language, politics and history of Medieval England. I obtained my BA in English in 2016. I am very passionate about learning myself and love being able to motivate and encourage others who wish to learn and be the best they can be. I am friendly, patient with a real desire to help! I have ample experience teaching. At university I tutor small groups of first year English students for a literary theory and criticism module to aid their overall learning and adjustment to degree level demands. I have tutored KS3, GCSE and A-level students through this site for over two years. I have helped students with grammar, writing technique, exam preparation and analysing pieces of literature. What's next? If you have any questions or would like to know more then do not hesitate to send me a message. Be as specific as possible (level/ year and subject) so I can get a sense of what you will require from me. I look forward to meeting you! Alexandra.

About my sessions

What can you help me with? My specialism is English, so I can assist in absolutely anything to do with books, novels, plays, poetry and all they comprise of! I can help you with essays, sentence construction, analysing language and structure, rhyme scheme, contextual points, imagery and more. I also am very capable of tutoring History. I find the link between literature and its context fascinating so with my A-level in History and my ongoing master's degree in History I will be delighted to provide help in whichever area you need it. Written work I am more than happy to read through your essays (incomplete and complete) to check grammar, spelling, thematic links, clarity of expression and engagement with main ideas. I will be able to offer suggestions for expansion or improvement. If you are interested in this service then do contact me. The essays can be for History, English Literature or English Language. Additionally, I am very capable of proof reading personal statements or any other written assessments, such as past exam papers. Again, drop me a message and I can read it through for you and provide clear and constructive feedback.

When looking at a poem for the first time it is important to make a note of a number of structural and linguistic points. Firstly, you may wish to look at the structure which can involve identifying the number of stanzas, the length of verses and a rhyme scheme. Secondly, imagery, specific lexical choices and linguistic devices such as onomatopoeia, alliteration or metaphors are often key components which will help you to unlock both the superficial and underlying meanings to the poem before you.
