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 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 prose, poetry, and drama, and encourage comparison with important foreign works that are readily available in English translation.
It seeks to refine understanding and use of English at a top level and explores how societies have developed despite human pretension and propensity for prioritisation of self-interest.
Historical depictions of the world provide powerful insights into how and why life is as it is, and help to develop tolerance, empathy, and wisdom in this age of uncertainty, laissez-faire liberalism, nationalism, globalisation, pandemic, interference, and climate-change.
If you are interested in history and culture, you might wish to engage in a course of close reading and critical analysis of great literature, written in or translated into English.
Students view guided home-study and online private tuition as the mainstays of our courses because they inspire and lead to a lasting understanding of how to use English.
Guided home-study entails in-depth reading and listening, critical analysis, written presentation, and online attendance at private tutorials with your personal tutor.
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 own pace until you are ready to write and support the views you adopt and are ready to defend.
Guided home-study of English Literature includes critical analysis of prescribed prose, poetry, and drama, aided by related AV lectures that inform you on content and message.
This methodology enables you to form ideas and present them in essay form to your tutor. Interactive one-to-one exchanges during online tutorials will allow debate, discussion, and constructive evaluation of your understanding and appreciation of English Literature.
Prescribed reading materials and AV lectures support study of the primary prose, poetry, or drama, and point to areas upon which to focus, examine, and feature in your essay.
Your proficiency in English will grow as you enjoy reading and analysing chosen literature.
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 most effective way to address your individual and unique study needs.
Group study is risky and, along with free courses, is far less effective than private tuition.
These aid your critical reading and analysis of a primary prose, poetry, or drama text.
