Self Introduction

I am extremely well-versed in the English Language and have done consistently well in GP and Literature throughout my JC (as well as secondary school) life. Though I have not had tutoring experience before, I have been helping peers with both English and Literature successfully. While I am not outstanding in subjects that deal with math and science, my passion has been in the humanities, particularly in languages, as is evident in my grades.

As for my teaching style, I tend to emphasize more on the fluidity of the English language and how to manipulate it to one's advantage in exams, rather than the plain, blunt reiteration of content. It is my belief that while a good reservoir of content is useful, English and Literature papers require an extremely high level of competency in the language itself. I do not believe in simply loading the student with the technical aspects of English, which is what many local teachers seem to like to do. I strongly believe in English as a fluid and creative method of expression, rather than an meaningless congregation of technical terms like 'noun' or 'verb'. When combined with the adequate skills, this will result in better performance in these papers.

My strong grasp of analysis and familiarity in literary devices allows me to impart exemplary skills in doing well in Literature. I have received awards in poetry writing as well as essay writing throughout the years; a testament to my excellent command in Literature. Understanding poetry and prose becomes much easier when one is equipped with a broad, flexible perspective. While poetry and prose may seem daunting at first, a keen eye and sharp analytical skills will make pieces much easier to handle, so much that it often turns into a habit.
