Why study English Literature?
Studying English Literature broadens your skills in creativity and analytical problem-solving. You will understand how to interpret the world's greatest stories, prose and poetry, and how it's influenced our culture today. English Literature is one of the best ways to improve your vocabulary, writing and speaking.
How to revise for English Literature
The best ways to revise English Literature is to read hundreds of texts, all from different genres, styles and authors. This helps both in socio-cultural knowledge and practicality. You can also practise annotating and analysing different texts to unlock that creative spark! We also recommend hiring an English tutor at least 3 months before your exam to reach your target grades.
Do I really need an English tutor?
Sometimes it doesn't matter how great your English Literature teacher is, or how much you love the subject, you just need a little extra support. You might not be reaching the grades you really want and feel like you're underperforming compared to your peers. Other times you can't quite nail the essay writing technique. All of which can be easily fixed!
Hiring an English Literature tutor will give you tailored 1:1 support that goes over and above your school studies. Instead of learning to the class pace, you'll find someone who meets you in the middle. This means you'll be able to understand exactly where you need to improve and how to do so, enabling you to reach those A grades! In fact, we've seen our students go from a grade C (Level 4) to an A (Level 7) in just a few sessions, just from having a private tutor listen and guide them in the right direction.
Our passionate English tutors are the wise old owls when it comes to literature! They know everything from Hemingway to Wordsworth; Shakespeare to Shelley. They'll help you bring texts back to life, just like a mad scientist building Frankenstein. It makes learning much easier and more entertaining when you're with someone who cares both about the subject and your needs. An English tutor could be the difference between getting into Oxbridge or a Russell Group University! If that's your dream. perhaps tuition could be the answer.
We understand more than anyone how hard it is to find an English tutor that you trust will help you reach your goals. What if they let you down? What if you waste your money? That's why at Tutor House, we match you with your perfect tutor, based on your learning style, aims, budget and more.
