Current Masters student tutoring online in literature, poetry and in writing essays/CVs

Methodology

I offer lessons to both native English speakers studying literature at school or university, as well as foreign students who need assistance writing in English. I can use Skype to conduct face-to-face question-and-answer lessons, and will also provide detailed analysis and critique of essays via email.

Background

I achieved an A at A-Level in English Literature, received a First Class Bachelor's degree from the University of Nottingham and am currently studying Literature of the Romantic Period as a Masters. I frequently assist international students with their grammar and essay-writing, as well as providing lessons to other Masters students on essay structure and content. Having completed both my A-Levels and BA within the last five years, I have a strong understanding of modern essay techniques and standards.

George is extremely hardworking and trustworthy. He achieved a 1st from the university of Nottingham and he would be an excellent tutor to anyone who needed it.

Louise

I studied with George at the University of Nottingham. George had a great and in-depth knowledge of Literature; he is friendly and lovely to talk too and always helpful!

Katie

George is a wonderful tutor. He really knows his stuff, and he'll tell you the truth about your writing without skirting around the edge but always in a kind way. Would absolutely recommend him!

Jake

I think George's passion for the subject is his strongest attribute and why he's a trustworthy tutor. His broad knowledge of the subject stems from this, especially with poetry, literature and creative writing. It was clear to see after living with him throughout our undergraduate degrees - he was always the one in the house consistently coming home with first in assignments which culminated in him getting a first overall and was thoroughly deserved. Not only this but he also wrote pieces of his own work such as screenplays and poems which weren't required by his course, but because it was what he loves to do!

Whilst at uni with George I studied biology. I always knew I would study a science, but looking back it was the passion that the biology teachers at my old school consistently showed which really engaged me in the subject above all others. I see this same passion in George for his field as I saw in those teachers and it's why I'm more than happy to recommend him now!

I studied English with Creative Writing with George at Nottingham University and we would often write together in the library or in coffee shops! He's reliable and hard working - with original ideas which inspire others! He will always help others and you can trust him to have read any book or poem you need help with, as literature is a real passion for him! I would definitely recommend him to any students who would like some extra help - they couldn't find a better tutor!

Ellie

George is a perceptive and conscientious MA student. He is extremely helpful, an excellent explainer and motivator, - and also really hilarious. Literature is his passion, I cannot recommend anyone greater to learn with. 5* rating, George got me through my undergraduate degree, I am forever grateful for all his help and support.
