Close analysis in poetry: for students and writers

Close analysis is something you will need whether you are taking English literature exams or whether you are thinking of writing your own poems. It always helps to know how to analyse one first. In this class, you will learn key tips on how to improve your close analysis, specifically working on spotting and defining literary devices while also making links to how they function. Focusing on the structure, tone, and narrative voice, you will learn how to dissect a poem, speak about it, or write about it, effectively adding a new layer to your argument. It will be an accessible and concrete way to address these abstract concepts of literature, helping you further your knowledge in the world of poetry.

🇲🇫 Be Fluent in French and Speak it with Confidence!
My name is Fatima and I am delighted to introduce myself to you as your future French teacher. For four years, I have had the pleasure of teaching this magnificent language and its rich and diverse literature. Currently based in Vietnam, I have had the opportunity to teach students from diverse backgrounds, which has enriched my perspective and my teaching method. My passion for the French language and literature began at a very young age, and it led me to obtain a master's degree in French literature and education. Every day, I am inspired by the works of great authors and by the beauty of the French language. What pushes me to share my knowledge is the deep desire to transmit this passion and to see my students flourish thanks to their mastery of French. As a teacher, I adopt a different teaching method. I favor interactive and creative lessons, where each student can express themselves freely and develop their language skills in a dynamic and engaging way. My goal is to make you love the French language as much as I love it, and to give you the tools you need to express yourself with ease and confidence. I can't wait to start this adventure with you and share the richness of French literature together. Join me to discover a world of words, stories and culture.

Georgina
GCSE's English Literature and English Language Tutoring
Hi, I'm Georgie and I'm a graduate from UCL, who is currently studying a PhD in English Literature at the University of Reading. I'm a working researcher in English Literature with an extensive knowledge of all GCSE and A Level syllabuses. When I'm tutoring I like to make sure that the content is relatable. Shakespeare, An Inspector Calls, Of Mice and Men, Paradise Lost and especially poetry can be seen as rather daunting, but all of these texts have a relevancy to today. Lessons are fun and interactive. This is through practicing the question together, time practices (to get better at time management) and discussion based learning. I have a great track record with all students in the 2022 and 2023 exam season reporting passes with Grade 4 or above.
