English Literature: Themes and Intertextuality in Literature, for Students and Adults

English Literature is an extremely important and, for many students, compulsory part of education. This class is about improving the skills needed for close, thematic reading of both old and more contemporary texts. Using overarching themes found across literature, as well as giving suggestions for other relevant texts, this class aims not only to help pass any exams, but to also enrich your understanding and appreciation of the subject.

Outside of exams, especially for any adults, this class can be a more freeform discussion of novels or poetry for anyone who wants to enjoy literature on a deeper level but isn't quite sure where to start or what avenues of thought to explore.

About Me

I tutor English primarily because I enjoy English and discussing it with other people. Being able to help guide my students towards more complex and nuanced ideas is an extremely rewarding experience.

My aim for multiple lessons is to reach the point where I can disagree with my student on their interpretation, and still have them be able to produce evidence for themselves. While I am always willing to offer guidance and ideas, these lessons are not for students who simply want to parrot someone else's explanations. they are rather for people who want to expand their own abilities and interests.

Education

I am currently doing an English Literature BA(Hons) degree at Durham University.

I attended City of London School for Boys for secondary school and Sixth Form.

Experience / Qualifications

3 A-Levels, including an A* in English
Extended Project Qualification, on English Literature - A*
11 GCSEs, grades A*-A / 9-7, including Maths, English, and Triple Science

Reviews (1)

Excellent responsible teacher who knows what he does and knows what he teaches. And now, after few lessons, I can witness the difference. My daughter has just got much better results in her written essays at school, and has just received her English teacher's congratulations. So, a thousand thanks for your help and patience!
