I am a 24 year old English Literature undergraduate at Bristol University, and I hope to go on and do a PhD in Victorian Literature with a goal of working in academia. I have experience in tutoring both English Literature and Language at GCSE and A Level with very positive results.

Before starting University I had a short break from education. I am extremely sympathetic towards the stress and anxiety students feel in the high pressure environment young people are part of today, and my priority will always be making sure the student feels happy, comfortable and as confident about their studies as possible. In my opinion this is the best way to get the most out of the sessions.

About my sessions

The structure of my lessons will always center on the needs of the individual. Some students will already have a clear idea of what they wish to discuss in the session. Those who have something specific they want to discuss -such as an essay - are welcome to send me this in advance. I will be able to have a look at the work prior to the session, and then use the session to talk through my feedback, and the student can ask any questions they wish.

The structure of my lessons will always center on the needs of the individual. Some students will already have a clear idea of what they wish to discuss in the session. Those who have something specific they want to discuss -such as an essay - are welcome to send me this in advance. I will be able to have a look at the work prior to the session, and then use the session to talk through my feedback, and the student can ask any questions they wish.

Other students will have more of a vague idea of what they want to cover during the session. In these cases, I will tend to lead the sessions, and the focus will vary. If we are approaching exam time, we may focus on general exam technique. These sessions might include discussing a question from a mock exam paper, where I will help the student by working with them to prepare a well written answer on a book they are studying. Or, we may look at an unseen text. Some sessions I will focus on a particular area a student is struggling with, such as how to write a good introduction or conclusion in an exam situation.

This is a very brief guide to sessions, and I must stress that all sessions are tailored to the individual student.

I really enjoyed this lesson, I didn't even notice how the time went by. We discussed many themes and little bit of context about R&J.

I really enjoyed this lesson. I was able to expand my knowledge of the themes of 'Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde ' as well as little bit of character analysis with my tutors help.

The lesson went really well. We focused on the context and the first chapter of the book. A analysis was written which I found really useful.
