  • Learning How to Read Poems Editor's Pick

    Thomas R Williams A-level English Tutor (South West London) Picture
    In my teaching career, I’ve seen school pupils, A-Level students and even English undergraduates show extreme discomfort when I’ve presented them with a new poem and asked them to talk about it. Students of all ages will frown, hold their head in the hands, throw away the book and shout ‘I Hate...
  • Tips to succeed in learning Italian

    Giorgia Benuzzi GCSE Italian Tutor (Twickenham) Picture
    Several students join beginner courses thinking that attending one 2 hours session per week would be enough to master Italian and just learning by heart a few sentences would be sufficient to hold a decent conversation.

    Robert Kiely Essay Writing Tutor (East London) Picture
    I'd like to use this space to offer some tips to combat a problem I commonly encounter.

  • Laughter in Shakespeare's Tragedies Editor's Pick

    Will Cartwright-Harwood University English Tutor (South East London) Picture
    ‘Comedy is (as we have said) an imitation of inferior people - not, however, with respect to every kind of defect: the laughable is a species of what is disgraceful. The laughable is an error or disgrace that does not involve pain or destruction; for example, a comic mask is ugly and distorted,...

    Ria Shah University Economics Tutor (Harrow) Picture

  • Peter Barry's "Beginning Theory".

    Max Churcher Essay Writing Tutor (North London) Picture
    Peter Barry's Beginning Theory, despite its fairly prosaic appearances, is a vital tool in approaching not just English and Media, but in exploring the connections that bring all subjects together, that of thought. Barry's book manages that rare feat; to be both concise in its approach, and...
