Hi I'm Katie, I'm a recent University of Sussex graduate, having completed my degree in English and Film Studies, in July this year. I have qualifications for both subjects from GCSE level onwards. I was previously a student mentor at the University of Sussex, in the school of Media, Film and Music, with further experience of one to one student mentoring throughout my school life. Throuh my experience I have learnt that students learn well with positive reinforcement, such as praise when they show they have progressed. I will monitor progress through using concepts taught and applying them to questions and situations that the student can then figure out. I am happy to help with either English Literature or Film Studies from primary school level to degree level.

I am a recent English and Film Studies graduate, having completed my degree at University of Sussex in July of this year. I was a student mentor for the University of Sussex in my final year, mentoring once a week at drop-in sessions. I provided both academic and general university support for students who want help from the student mentors. I have also been involved with the reading buddy scheme during my time at sixth form. This involved tutoring a secondary school student in English Literature through reading aloud. The reading aloud improved his literacy and confidence skills over the year and was a very rewarding experience. During 2011-12 I was part of The Listening Service at my school, which involved running activites for new secondary student classes to help them engage with students at the end of secondary school. This helped them with their transition into secondary school, if they needed further support we would run drop in sessions for them once a week.
