Additional information and experience - Fiona G.

I am passionate about the literary arts; about their ability to communicate ideas and emotions and to help us make sense of the world around us. Tutoring has allowed me to share that passion with students of all age groups and with a wide variety of educational needs. I enjoy the process of finding the best path to helping an individual achieve their goals, whether that be essay structure improvement, gaining a better appreciation of a specific text, or attempting to boost predicted grades. So far, I have had an excellent degree of success with helping the majority of my students attain A and A* Grades at A-Level and GCSE.

I have taught a range of students, from primary school children, through to adult learners and university students over the past 10 years. I find the needs of each student are as individual as they are, and I usually like to keep the sessions fairly informal and discover exactly where it is that students are finding themselves in difficulties. This also encourages them to develop and have confidence in their own individual voice, both in creative writing, or in their approach to analysing a specific text.

Some of the areas I have experience in and have covered are:

-Boosting English Language and Literature grades at GCSE and A-Level

-UCAS applications

-Preparation for Oxbridge/ university entrance interviews

-Practical criticism and close textual analysis

-Essay structure and style

-Coursework guidance

-Creative writing support

-Historical context and its textual significance

-Literary theory and its application

-Helping students gain confidence in expressing ideas verbally

-Remote marking and feedback

-Suggestions for wider reading

-My particular research interests at university included: Irish Literature, Empire writing, W. B. Yeats and literary satire in the 18th century.
