EducationGraduate: First Class Honours Degree in English Literature and Sociology from the University of Glasgow, Scotland.
ExperienceHi, my name is Tess and I recently moved from Scotland to Stockholm. I have a First Class Honours degree from the University of Glasgow in English Literature and Sociology. I have paid experience in tutoring English at the Scottish Higher level (pupils aged 15-16). This mostly involved help with literary interpretation, grammar, spelling, essay writing and how to structure answers/cope generally under exam conditions. The pupil I tutored attained an A (highest grade) in her final examinations.
In Sweden my English skills will probably be most useful to those seeking advanced fluency in written English, or those who struggle with literary interpretation/criticism. Although I have no paid tutoring experience in Sociology, as my degree shows I have an extremely high level of competency in the social sciences. I specialised in the sociological study of religion and gender. I also studied consumerism and nationalism. I would be able to provide guidance and insight into essay-writing methods specific to the social sciences, plus general help with understanding key theories. My general academic skills include excellent essay-structuring, productive study techniques and the secrets to staying composed and maximising one's potential under exam conditions.
I have with me my university diploma and transcript, and can obtain if needed a reference from my previous employer. I strongly believe that confidence in yourself and clear knowledge of what is actually expected of you are the keys to academic success. If you believe that I could help you achieve your full academic potential then please get in touch!
HobbiesI love reading, particularly fantasy. I have an orange belt in Shorinji Kempo. I love animals and have owned dogs from the age of ten. I play badminton casually and I'm a huge fan of motorsport, especially Formula One.
