Understanding The Narrative Voice [English Lit]

One aspect of style in prose writing is the narrative voice, or narrative perspective or point of view as it is sometimes called. However, what does it mean and how can you identify it in a text? In literature, who is telling the story affects how a story can be received by the reader. Novels, short stories and the like are crafted by writers to produce an affect, and part of that crafting is in HOW a story is told; WHO is telling the story. In this course we will learn what is the narrative voice, what are the different types of narrative voice, their characterisations, and how to identify them in literature. Who is this course for? This course is aimed at students studying A-level and International Baccalaureate English Literature. This course will also be useful to GCSE students wanting to get an 8 or a 9. Or anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of literature to gain a fuller understanding of what they are reading. Course Content: ▪ What is narrative voice ▪ Characterisation of narrator and narrative voice ▪ Multiple examples to practice your knowledge ▪ Going through the analysis together and understanding what evidence will tell you what narrative voice the text is written in.

History MA Graduate tutoring German and History

Hi! I’m a 23 year old MA Graduate from UCL who is looking forward to tutoring you in German or History at all levels! I have been in academia for a number of years now and have focused much of my energies into studying. At the same time I have refined the ways in which I tackle exams and assessments. I am looking forward to sharing this with you and helping you achieve your goals. I went to school in Scotland and studied in England, so I am able to assist tutoring history and exam technique at all levels: -National 5 History -Higher History -Advanced Higher History -Bachelor of Art -Master's At whatever level I look forward to strengthening your subject comprehension, boost confidence, and build important learning skills and overcoming any learning obstacles you are having together! :) I prefer to centre my teaching methods around what you as the student are requiring. My time during school and university has required me to test out a number of different tuition methods. I understand that every person learns differently. I look forward to helping you find what works for you. Alternatively if you already have a particular method of learning you prefer I am happy to follow it. Moreover, as I myself, have dyslexia, I have a greater understanding of the struggles this can bring to some students therefore I am also happy to support students who are requiring this support.
