I have a B.A and M.Phil. in English literature from Trinity College Dublin and I'm offering lessons to students in secondary school or university.

Methodology

I orientate my lessons to suit each student's particular needs. I encourage students to explore the material, share there ideas, and help them to develop and hone their understanding of texts. I can also help with essay writing and creative writing.

Experience

I was awarded First Class Honours for my undergraduate degree and finished first in my class with Distinction in my Master’s. My research has generally focused on Irish literature, but I have an in depth understanding of European and American literature too.
