My title is comprehensive enough but I'll elaborate: I'm a fresh MA graduate who wrote an entire thesis about how an eighteenth-century female author was an avant-garde promoter of feminism. I do not like the brand "teacher" because the onus of teaching falls upon both the giver and the receiver. My method of instruction has been effective and innovative in its own respect. I have the tenacity of building a student's proficiency from grass-roots level.
I have been involved in the teaching domain right after my first degree. I have had experiences with students ranging from primary school level to A-levels. My diligence as a tutor comes from engagement in both private coaching and secondary school teaching. Given my own academic formation for A-levels, I am at ease with the Cambridge Higher Education curriculum as well as freestyle English lessons tailored to the needy individual. The list of subjects that I have taught professionally are: English language, Literature in English, General Paper and Oral English (for O-Levels). On a side note, I have also tutored O-Level students in French language.
