I tutor Cambridge IGCSE, AS and A2-Level English Literature. I focus on students' essay-writing, as their essay-writing technique and structure is central to their performance in the exam. I can also assist students with how to approach their assigned texts so that they develop insightful analyses. I don't read the texts myself as I feel that it is important for students to develop original interpretations and understandings of the text in order to receive top grades, but I can walk them through how to get to that level.
I'm flexible to the student's needs. I can grade and give feedback on essays, teach close reading technique and literary devices. Most importantly, I provide valuable information on what Cambridge requires for an A* essay, which is very specific and easily achieved with the right approach.
I am a patient, calm and encouraging teacher who knows that anyone can achieve the grade they want in Literature with the right attitude and help.
I have received three Top in New Zealand awards in Cambridge examinations for essay-writing subjects (twice for English Literature) and was Dux and Head Girl of ACG Parnell College in 2020. I have 2 year's experience tutoring English, am a dedicated teacher and a passionate Literature student.
These rates include a lot of preparation and providing feedback on their essays outside of tutoring sessions, plus any other extra assistance they need.
I was Head Girl and the recipient of the Academic Dux Award at ACG Parnell College in 2019. I am a reliable, presentable and highly motivated student. My passions are reading, writing and learning Chinese.
I am studying Law, Communications and Chinese at Auckland University.
