Information about Daniel
I am Daniel (B.A. Oxford, M.A., M.Phil. London), an experienced, friendly and highly-qualified private tutor in English and other Humanities subjects. I hold first-class B.A., M.A. and M.Phil. degrees from the Universities of Oxford and London in English Literature. I am currently in the final stages of my Ph.D., also in English Literature, and a published poet and researcher.
I am passionate about what I do. I help students to develop and foster critical thinking, analytical habits of mind, and close reading and writing skills that will stand them in good stead throughout their lives. At the core of my approach is the enjoyment that comes from close attention to the nuances of language. It is central to my teaching philosophy that I guide students to develop in their own way, using their own words: I believe that the individual student`s understanding of how to read and think well is shaped by such personal engagement. I also hold that private tuition should strike a balance between expanding students` horizons, having fun, and achieving excellent exam results.
As a published poet and researcher in Literature, I also bring the unique dimension of creative practice and research-led teaching to my specialism, English Literature.
Availability: I currently tutor at my Nether Edge Studio, Sheffield, and I am able to travel to students` houses nearby. I am available Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, depending on time and location.
Willing to travel: 2 miles
Experience: I have tutored privately for six years in English Language and English Literature (GCSE, AS and A Level) and History and Geography (GCSE, AS and A Level). I have successfully coached students for Oxbridge interview preparation and provided sessions on study skills, exam technique and coursework/essay structure. I have also lectured in Literature at Birkbeck College, University of London, and as a Visiting Lecturer in Poetry at Morley College and The Poetry School, both in London.
