About Hermione

English, Creative Writing and Spanish Tutor

I would describe myself as a creative and enthusiastic individual. My love of learning, combined with my determination, helped me to achieve my undergraduate degree in English with Creative Writing. I have also recently completed a masters in Creative and Life Writing at Goldsmiths, University of London.
During the process of my undergraduate degree, I studied a wide range of literature and gained experience in writing that I feel would be beneficial, if I were to tutor in English Literature/Language. I take a focused and sincere approach to my craft, a strength I feel will translate well into my tutorials. I have also performed in and participated in the organisation of various poetry and open mic night events during my time at Falmouth University. In the summer of 2013 I took part in the 'Architects of Our Republic' project, a series of spoken word poetry workshops put on by London based organisation, Apples and Snakes. Throughout the course of this process, I learned a great deal of useful writing techniques, which I feel would come in handy if I were to tutor in creative writing.
Last year I worked at the Kumon Centre in Buckhurst Hill, a supplementary education programme, mainly for students of primary school age. In my role as Class Assistant, I was required to help specific students with reading exercises, sign the students in and out of class and mark their work. I often worked extra hours in order to organise the students’ homework sheets, which required patience and great attention to detail: making sure each child was assigned the correct work to match their ability. During my time there I worked with students across a wide range of abilities. I learned to tailor my teaching style to individual students and it was great to be able to witness their progress first hand.
I enjoy studying languages and exploring different cultures. I speak Spanish reasonably well and have visited Barcelona several times. This summer (July 2014), I enrolled in a 4 week Spanish course at Camino Barcelona Spanish Language School. I attended classes every day from 3pm until 7pm, and by the end of the month I had achieved a fairly high level of Spanish. Although I was not teaching the classes myself, it was a good opportunity for me to observe and take note of the teaching methods used. My teachers were incredibly enthusiastic and engaging, using inventive techniques in order to help their students really connect with and develop a deeper understanding of the Spanish language. This inspired me to consider becoming a Spanish tutor myself. I have a genuine love for the language, and would appreciate the chance to share it with others.
I am an unusually caring and empathetic person. I have a gift for bringing out the best in people and I enjoy coming up with imaginative ways to solve problems. During my school years, there were certain subjects that I really struggled with. However, I feel that this has helped me to gain a greater understanding and patience with those who are currently struggling with academic work. These experiences have taught me the importance of working hard and achieving your goals and this is something I would like to impress upon my pupils.
