I enjoy conveying to other people my love and knowledge of English. Being able to help students develop their skills in written expression is greatly rewarding.

Top 5 Study Tips

1When studying for a long period of time, ensure that you take a break of 15-30 minutes every two hours or thereabouts.

2When reviewing notes, it is always wise to highlight key terms, quotes or sentences that reflect the main concepts. Write these down on a separate page to consolidate your understanding of the text and develop a strong, independent thesis.

3In the case of quotes, identify any techniques they exhibit and explain how these techniques further meaning.

4Engage with the text personally. Try to identify what techniques or elements (Plot? Dialogue? Figurative language?) contribute to your feelings toward it.

5In forming your analysis of a text, avoid merely repeating the assertions of other analyses. Instead, use these writings to develop your own unique reading of the text.
