About Robyn

PhD student and Undergraduate Seminar Tutor

I am a PhD student at Birkbeck, University of London, where I research modernist literature. I am also a seminar tutor at Birkbeck, teaching on an undergraduate critical theory module. This module explores some foundational narratives and key approaches to reading literature: I teach the influence of Genesis and Ovid’s 'Metamorphoses' in texts such as Milton's 'Paradise Lost' and Wilde's 'The Picture of Dorian Gray', as well as gender theory, postcolonial theory, psychoanalytical theory, and queer theory. I am experienced in marking student essays, always giving extensive feedback which has significantly improved my students' grades over the course of the year.

If you are struggling to understand the literary texts you have been assigned to read in your modules, I can help you to approach these and break down the text in a way that is easy to understand. Alternatively, if you are having difficulty with writing essays and/or exam preparation, I can teach essay-writing skills, showing you how to structure your essay in a way that will help you to get the best possible mark. As an experienced copyeditor and proofreader, I can also offer proofreading sessions before you submit your assignments.

I received a distinction (first class) in my MA degree in English Literature at the University of Leeds, where I also completed a BA in English Language and Literature. I am a friendly, engaging, and patient tutor, and I am available to teach at your home, over Skype, or in a café. If you have any questions before booking a lesson with me, don't hesitate to get in touch.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Employment reference

Written by Shamailla R
Via an agency, Robyn worked within the HR department of the National Portrait Gallery as an HR Administrator for a period of approximately four months which was an extension to the original time stated.As her line manager I found Robyn to be extremely hard working, concientious and pro-active in her style of working. She approached her work in a professional manner, was always reliable and worked flexibly to accommodate the needs of the department. Robyn did not work at the Gallery in a teaching capacity however, I am aware that her knowledge is in the subject of English.
