My name is Anya, and I am a second year History student at the University of Bristol, but I also currently take open units in English Literature. I have always loved both subjects, and had a passion for essay writing, which is what led me to select them as two of my Higher Level subjects for the International Baccalaureate, where I achieved the highest grade for English Lit in my school. Taking units in both subjects at university has also permitted me to continue enriching my understanding of the two subjects that I love the most.

My priority with tutoring is creating a relaxed environment through which my student and I can engage in an open discussion on the subject matter - to me, it is integral that they are not afraid to give the ‘wrong’ answer, because with humanities, the most important thing is not simply the answer you give, but the way in which you justify it.

I have experience tutoring, helping my peers at school at the request of my teacher, whilst also having worked with MyTutor for almost a year. This enabled me to develop my style of teaching, as I believe that with humanities subjects, it is not helpful to simply bombard students with information, but instead to guide them, using prompts to enable them to think of their own ideas and interpretation as opposed to merely repeating what I say - this will prove essential when they encounter unseen material in their papers, as examiners are keen to test their ability to think independently.

About my sessions

I am a patient and highly adaptive tutor, who will happily adjust my teaching based on what I deem to be most fitting for the student. My sessions will be entirely moulded based on what you feel you need to focus on, and the method of learning that works best for you, whether it be going through past papers with my guidance, or having focused discussions on aspects of the syllabus where you feel you need to target your revision.

I am a patient and highly adaptive tutor, who will happily adjust my teaching based on what I deem to be most fitting for the student. My sessions will be entirely moulded based on what you feel you need to focus on, and the method of learning that works best for you, whether it be going through past papers with my guidance, or having focused discussions on aspects of the syllabus where you feel you need to target your revision. 

English Literature

From my experience, the most essential aspect in writing a successful English essay is a genuine appreciation of the writer's literary choices, taking into account their authorial intention. During sessions with me, I will aim to encourage students to think and develop ideas beyond what you have learnt in class, fostering techniques that will allow you to be independent in your study of texts, as well as refining the methods that you use in your interpretation of them.

History

Although facts are essential in History, the key to scoring the highest grades is not simply regurgitating them, but instead using the evidence that you have to evaluate questions, so that you can effectively support the point of view that you are taking. I can assist you in developing your analytical skills, which will ensure that your examiner recognises your deep understanding of the subject, as well as other tips and techniques that will be required in your analysis of sources.
