How an English Literature Tutor can help you

Ace your degree with an English Literature tutor who is at the top of their field.

An English Literature degree is notoriously hard to pass or to get good results in. Working your way through a great number of (hefty) literary works and books is a challenging undertaking. However, the ability to perform a close reading on these and to analyse the historical, social and stylistic context is where the real challenge lies for many students. The third skill that is absolutely necessary to be successful at this degree is good essay writing skills.

Our English Literature tutors can help you on all three of these levels and improve your knowledge and skills to help you get the best results. The Profs deliver the best private English Literature tuition to students and professionals at all levels. We have the best tutors to help you with your GCSE English Literature, A Level English Literature, undergraduate and postgraduate studies in English literature. You may wish to focus on a specific subject of literature or on a theoretical problem you are struggling with, or focus on preparing and writing essays or dissertations.

We can provide you with a top English Literature tutor specialised in the subject you need help with. Our English Literature tutors consist of distinguished academics from the UK’s top English departments who we can match to your specific needs. They can help you with close readings of Shakespeare, Early Modern literature such as Chaucer, Anglo-Saxon literature such as Beowulf. They can support you in your study of Romanticism with writers such as Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Keats, Shelley, Jane Austen etc. Our tutors can guide you through the greats of Victorian literature: Charles Dickens, the Bröntes, Thackeray’s Vanity Fair, Thomas Hardy, Arthur Conan Doyle, Tennyson etc. Or maybe you’re focusing on Modernism and James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Conrad etc.

All our tutoring sessions are tailor made and based on students’ needs and aims. Our English Lit tutors provide extensive support in various ways. They can help you with your key modules, or with optional modules such as postcolonial literature with the likes of Salman Rushdie, Chinua Achebe, Frantz Fanon, Edward Said, Homi Bhabha, or with queer literary theory etc. Literary theory is a key factor both when it comes to close reading and to writing an essay or dissertation. Whether you are struggling to fully grasp the theories of Derrida, Hegel, Marx, Bathes, de Saussure, de Beauvoir or others, our tutors have got you covered.

Poetry is another important part of many literary courses and degrees. Close reading and analysis of poetry is a very different thing than the literary analysis of prose. Poetics involves knowledge of cadence, meter, stanza, imagery and other literary features. Our tutors’ experience in the academic literary world will be of an enormous help to you when you need to apply the theoretical and contextual concepts to novels or poems. Our English literature tutors will guide and motivate you through gaining these skills, preparing essays, working out time sheets with you and writing an essay or dissertation.
