I am a third year English Literature student at the University of York. I have always loved reading, but studying English at university level has also allowed me to explore my passion for History. I hold a part-time job at a museum, and so have experience imparting knowledge in a concise and and enthusiastic way. I studied Maths with Statistics to A-level, and achieved an A at Biology AS level. I found the mix of arts and science subjects enlightening, and thoroughly enjoyed all of my A-level subjects. Having taken the 11+, G.C.S.E.s and A-levels, I have a developed a range of exam and revision techniques across a wide range of subjects that have allowed me the success I have had and I hope to share these through tutoring.
When I was in year twelve I took part in a volunteering scheme at my school that placed us within lessons as a teaching assistant for a year. I was allocated to a year 7 English lesson and helped pupils with things such as spelling, learning technical terms and how to use them accurately, and how to express themselves in the best way. I am a member of the Literature Society at university, as well as various dance societies. Separate from my degree, this year I have also been doing an extra-curricular beginners Italian course as it is a language I have always wanted to speak, and I enjoy the opportunity to learn as much as I can.
I believe an important part of learning is being able to use and practise your knowledge. An excellent way of doing this is through practice exam questions as they enable you to use the knowledge itself, and learn exam technique. It is important in a range of subjects to able to adapt basic knowledge to different situations, for example and unseen poem/extract in a literature exam or an unknown context or case study in a a science exam. By confronting these unfamiliar situations in a tutorial first, with help from someone else, it enables you to confront them more confidently in an exam situation. Most important is a fun and enthusiastic approach to learning to act as an encouraging influence.
