Guided Home-Study | Online Private Tuition
English Literature online distance learning courses include guided home-study, private tuition, and free reading materials and AV lectures.
We model this methodology on private tuition at the University of Oxford.
Students and alumnae associate private tuition with motivation, inspiration, and learning that leads to a lasting understanding of how to use English for effective communication.
Why Study English Literature?
English Literature reveals culture throughout history from the earliest times to the present.
We do not confine this course to British literature and support comparison with important foreign works of prose, poetry, and drama that are freely available in English translation.
The course examines use of English at an elite level to focus on literature and learn how societies arise and survive despite human self-interest and pretension.
Historical portrayals of the world provide powerful insights into how and why life is as it is, and help to promote tolerance, empathy, and wisdom in this age of uncertainty, laissez-faire liberalism, nationalism, globalisation, pandemic, tampering, and climate-change.
If you have an interest in English and history and culture, you can engage in close reading and critical analysis of great literature, written in or translated into English.
This English Literature course delivers guided home-study and private tuition at or above B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, (CEFRL).
Choose a topic for each home-study assignment and work at your pace until you are ready to write and defend the views you adopt.
Prescribed reading, AV lectures, and guidelines support home-study and point you to areas upon which to focus, analyse, and write about.
This enables you to form ideas and present them in essay form to your tutor for online interactive evaluation.
Your tutor will assess the cogency of your rhetorical analysis, as a display of your understanding and appreciation of the English language and the literature you examined.
Your proficiency in English will grow as you enjoy reading and analysing chosen literature.
You will learn to write clear rhetoric that communicates your ideas cogently, so you persuade and influence your reader by your argumentation.
Stronger reasoning skills will enable you to think beyond the facts and gain a professional and academic advantage that you can put to excellent use at work and elsewhere.
Private tuition is the practical means to meet your particular study needs.
Group study is unsafe and, in common with free courses, is much less cost-effective than private tuition.
