Masters student of English & enthusiastic tutor

I am a graduate of the University of Bristol where I studied Philosophy and Politics before undertaking a Masters degree in English Literature.

I want to help unlock the potential of students preparing for GCSE and A-levels, not only in English language and literature, but also Politics, and Critical thinking.

I was held back from the discovery of my passion for learning by lack of confidence with reading, and now I want to transmit my excitement to students who might otherwise find reading and thinking about literature daunting. Self-confidence in the basics of a discipline can be the difference between 'loving' a subject and 'hating' it.

Even at academically competitive schools, children who are seen to be 'keeping up' often receive very little individual attention. I saw my grades improve markedly between GCSE and A-level with the help of a holiday tutor, so I understand the value of one-on-one tuition. The relationship between a student and their teacher has a significant bearing on the student’s appetite for learning, which is why I aim to engage with tutees and tailor lessons to their interests and needs.

Having decided to throw myself into tutoring, tutorfair.com provides an amazing opportunity to earn a living whilst also helping students from every economic background.

Excellent tutor

John was really helpful with my politics essay. I wasn't sure how to tackle it so he talked me through ideas and helped me to structure my argument. He was very clear and made the essay seem a lot less daunting! He was helpful in the sense that we openly discussed the question and relevant themes, so I was able to come up with ideas without it feeling like it was all his work. Highly recommended and Very helpful!
Subject:
Politics
Outcome:
A greater understanding of how to structure essays and to approach an essay question by talking through ideas. Made the work seem less daunting and much more approachable.
