About me

About Me:

I am a law student at Exeter University, so essay writing is my thing. I love a good book and I can promise whatever you are reading in English is actually quite good.

I am patient, friendly and out-going (and maybe just a little crazy, so at least sessions won’t be boring)! I have had experience tutoring as I am currently tutoring young people in the South West who also want to go to law school, I have also volunteered at many different schools for all sorts of abilities.

The Sessions

You know best about what you need to know. So think of a topic that you are having trouble with; essay structure, understanding a topic, revision tools or coursework. And I will give you all you need to know, but mainly, I will guide you on how to learn and revise. While I do know somethings, it will stick more if you find it out and read it for yourself (I promise). Then next sessions we can go over it together again to make sure there is a firm understanding.

Applying to University:

If you are interested in applying to university I would be happy to give you tips and information especially about law school and what it’s like. Just ask!

What next?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you!

What most examination boards are looking for to in order to get those top grades is: context, analysis and argumentation.

Context- read about the history of the book, the writer’s life and popular news at the time of the novel was written. Then look at similar themes in the book. When you make these links you can incorporate the context of the time period in to each paragraph about the writing’s theme. For example; if you are writing about 20th century feminist/ gender orientated literature, then think about the waves the feminist movement was making and how people’s perception of a woman’s role was changing. Include scholars who may have had an opinion in the subject you are discussing at the time. Germaine Greer was a 20th century feminist who was influential in society you could use a quote from her to illustrate your point.

Analysis- It is good to have counter arguments and evidence in each paragraph but you have to weigh up all this evidence and decide which the strongest argument in each paragraph is and why you think it is the strongest argument- this should be the bulk of your paragraph

Argumentation- There must be a clear argument throughout the essay. Introduce what you will be arguing in the introduction, then reiterate it at the end of every paragraph (don’t be afraid to develop it). The analysis should always conclude that your argument is right and the strongest argument. Then reiterate it in the conclusion. Don’t say anything new in the conclusion- this should be the smallest part of the essay

I would recommend that you look at the individual exam boards mark scheme on their website and sometimes they even put an example answer. It would be helpful to go through these example answers and highlight the different categories that the mark scheme asks for.
