Literature is the constant passion of my life. Although I do not have formal teaching experience, I have spent the past four years intensively studying literature and literary theory on a level that I believe qualifies me to help others. I pursued my bachelor’s degree in Comparative Literature overseas at Goldsmiths College, University of London, choosing this institution based on its reputation for heavy emphasis on creativity and the individual, while still maintaining rigorous academic standards. I decided to remain at Goldsmiths to complete a master in Comparative Literary Studies with a focus on Modern Literature.
Aside from formal academia, I am constantly reading and pursuing my own creative work. I am an active writer of poetry and fiction, and I have informally lead literary discussions both in community settings and a few times in the classroom. Living in London for four years, in addition to Goldsmith’s connection to the world of humanities within London, has given me a unique exposure to the arts that I would not have had anywhere else. From attending book launches to art exhibitions, from film lectures to creative writing workshops, I have been a curious and active Londoner, utilizing the city and Goldsmith’s network within it to give myself an education beyond the classroom. As a result of being immersed in this environment, I believe I could carry over my experiences to make the tutor-student relationship a creative and exciting one.
I have tutored a few students informally in English language and in Poetry. All of my studies have been seminar and tutorial based, making discussion and one on one a primary part of the learning experience. As a result, I feel that I am comfortable and experienced in a one on one setting, and would be able to effectively help a student learn. I think my love for literature will come across, and help the student maximize his or her intellectual and creative potential.
