Empathetic and enthusiastic tutor of English, Media and Film
My main passion for tutoring is to help students surpass their own expectations and to inspire in them the same fervour I have for my subjects.
I have hundreds of hours' experience in assisting students with the achievement of goals, and I'm always looking to strengthen my tutoring further by attending training courses and seminars.
Good tutoring is about creating a bespoke experience to best suit the needs of each student. Using this adaptive approach, I can tailor lessons to appeal to the innate strengths of the individual, collaborating with them to find the most successful and enjoyable teaching plan. I have access to a wide range of resources through which this plan can then be implemented.
Since recently graduating from MA Contemporary Literature and Culture at Birkbeck, University of London, I have been keen to impart my passion for textual analysis, creative writing, and everything relating to the English language. Besides this, I am also highly proficient in Film and Media Studies as supported by my undergraduate degree in Contemporary Media Practice.
I'm currently studying MSc Psychoanalytic Developmental Psychology at UCL and the Anna Freud Centre, which is significant in helping me to understand more about children.
I have four years' experience working in publishing, and am happy to advise any student considering a future in this or other related fields.
Right now I live in South London and most of my free time is spent immersed in the arts, reading, writing, and going on long nature walks.
I had an amazing first lesson with Johanna, she was very clear in explaining things that I wasn't too sure on. After this lesson, I feel confident that if I keep having sessions with her, It will have a great effect on my exam results.
Johanna is great! She gained a perfect understanding of my essay's needs in a short amount of time and was able to provide concise, relevant and necessary insight and detail concerning how to elevate my final year research paper.
I highly recommend her!
