History student at University of Worcester offering English and English Literature lessons

Methodology

My teaching method is simple, approaching the topic according to the understanding and comprehension of each child as they all learn differently - in their own unique ways. I tend to prepare the lectures beforehand, however, after delivering a lecture with basic skills, I attend to the children individually to mould my words to their understanding.

Background

I am a History student at the University of Worcester. I have studied English Literature and History since secondary school.

I have taught English Literature for two years to five A level Literature students at my old school Maiden Erlegh, and their grades have improved significantly from Cs and Ds to Bs and As.

I had a mentor-tutor system in my school. Fortunately, us tutors were taught how to teach younger students to improve their skills and grades. I have taught English and English Literature, Maths, all sciences and History - to numerous GCSE students for three years. We as student tutors were assigned new children every few weeks. We can see a significant difference in the confidence and comprehension of the tutees by the end of the very first lesson.

I am confident with my Literature skills as I have inherited it from my family. My Grandfather and Great-Grandfather, both had a Degree and Masters in English Literature.
