A Comprehensive Introduction to English Literature

English Literature is a broad and expansive subject area. In this course, we'll cover a range of topics and authors inspired by current exam board recommendations and my own personal must-reads and recommendations as supplementary. Of course, this course is tailored to you, so we can cover any era or author that interests you alongside any preparations for examination.

The course can span all the way from the Medieval to Today in terms of content, and provide a grounding in whichever literature you as a student could need. For anyone looking to sign up, please include the book/books or period you would like to be tutored in.

About Me

Hi! I'm James, and I'm a current third-year English student at KCL. Teaching has been a lifelong passion for me, and so has my love and appreciation for literature.

Studying with me is very much an individual experience based on whatever you need; for instance, if you love to read, I can send you more material, if you need help with essay writing, we can go through rubrics and my previous first-class A-Level and University essays - it's very much up to you. I'm kind and patient and understand that literature isn't always everyone's cup of tea, but my goal would be to get you as a student to fall in love with at least one piece before our time together ends.

Education

GCSE, all A-C completed at Ysgol Gymraeg Gwynllyw in Wales (Both English Literature and Language at A grade).

A-Level, all completed A*-A at Ysgol Gymraeg Gwynllyw in Wales (English Literature - A*, Drama and Theatre Studies - A)

King's College London, English BA, Third Year.

Experience / Qualifications

I have previous Teaching experience as a classroom assistant and gues lecturer at primary and secondary level. I have recently completed an internship at university on Jacobean Theatre and Early Modern Drama under Professor Lucy Munro.

Reading Myths and Mystics: A Personal Philosophical Journey
It is not wisdom that moves towards us, but the heart that follows wisdom. This class will explore a panorama of philosophical texts through the poetic diction of stories and myths. Offering close-readings and lectures from Heraclitus to Shakespeare, Kierkegaard to Ávila, students are invited to engage and formulate new ideas. Personal requests are very welcome in consultation.

Christophe
French: written/oral expression, grammar, conversation
Do you want to start learning French but have never learnt it before? Or maybe you want to perfect your understanding of French grammar, or your capacity to express yourself clearly, spontaneously and with confidence in French? Or work on pronunciation, perhaps improve your accent and learn more about French culture? I can help you with all of these, and not only because I was born and raised in France: after getting my Master's Degree in Lingustics and Anthropology from the School for Advanced Research in Paris - at the time I was also teaching private classes of French and English to high school and university students - I moved to the UK and studied theatre at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. There I worked on the skills any speaker needs to communicate clearly and convincingly: diction, voice projection, etc. These two approaches - linguistics, and theatre work - give me a strong foundation from which to help any student learn French. So jump on: we'll build a learning program tailored to your needs and make sure that the lessons are both dense and fun.

"Master the Art of English: From Basics to Business, Colloquialisms to Confident Communication"
As an English teacher, I design my classes to accommodate learners of all levels and ages. My goal is to help students improve their skills in reading, writing, speaking, and understanding English. Beyond the basics, I also prioritize teaching colloquialisms and reducing accents for those interested in sounding more natural and fluent in their speech. For students who are looking to improve their business English skills, I provide specialized lessons that focus on industry-specific language and terminology. Throughout my classes, I strive to create a positive and engaging learning environment. I encourage my students to participate actively, ask questions, and practice what they've learned through class discussions and exercises. Ultimately, my aim is to help students develop a lifelong love for the English language and the confidence to communicate effectively in any situation.

Sarah
French and English lessons for all levels + preparation for the GCSE
As a recent graduate from a Master degree in teaching English, with 5 years of experience tutoring French children and students privately. During my two years of master, I taught English to secondary school students. The theory and the practise, allowed me to develop my teaching skills and through tutoring I have learned to tailor my teaching methods to the student’s needs. Moreover, throughout my years of tutoring, I could gave back the confidence that students were lacking in their education, which led to one of my students to obtain her “brevet” equivalent of the English GSCE with a high grade. The success was hinged through the learning material that I created. Indeed, I produced my own lesson plans and I provided weekly progress homework.

James
Teaching English for Children, or as a Second Language
As a Primary School Teacher and graduate from the prestigious Creative Writing MA at the University of East Anglia, as well as a native British speaker with a First in English (BA) to my name, I can help your child develop his or her English language skills (in the spoken or written form) in a variety of ways. First of all, my lessons are always tailored individually to my students, and as such, will always focus on what your child'd educational needs. Therefore, we may concentrate on writing in some lessons, speaking in others, or whatever it is we decide together that your child could benefit from working on. I am a friendly, warm, approachable, highly empathetic and passionate teacher, with an absolute love of learning, huge levels of experience in the field (six years working in Reception, Year 1 and 2 classrooms) and a desire to promote social change through education. If my lessons sound like something your child might be interested in, and if your child would like to advance his or her skills in both the written and spoken English, please feel free to get in contact, and we can go from there! Thank you, James

Learn to confidently speak English - lessons can be in French, Urdu and Hindi
As someone who can speak 5 languages fluently, I have over the years grasped the best way to efficiently learn new languages. I have experience working in 2 primary schools, where I had the opportunity to observe other teachers and learn from good practice. Being a firm believer that everyone has a different way of learning, I will urge students to let me know in advance their desired way of learning so I can prepare curated lessons just for them to make the most of our lectures. As a future lawyer, I have experience in advocacy, mooting, public speak and will work towards making students feel comfortable in speaking English.

Business English Lessons for Effective Business Communication (online/offline)
Apart from general English language learning, this type of classes will focus more on English business vocabulary, business writing, business conversation and listening comprehension. This class would be suitable for people who plan (or already do) to study business/economics, want to enhance business skills for the business trips/clients, want to communicate and network effectively with international people in English. For this class I will use several books as materials (popular editions) dedicated to Business English growth. I will involve much conversational practice and discussion activities of specific topics. The material (books, texts, exercises) will be shared with a student. All the classes and preparation for them will be adapted to each student individually. Feel free to contact me for questions or book a time slot for a class.
