Questions

Subject: Literature

Question:

When I read, I sometimes tend to lose track or not understand what I am reading because it's too hard; are there tips you can give for things like poetry and how to actually understand what I am reading?

Answer:

Depending on the material, you can find many resources and interpretations; thankfully, we live in a digital age where there are many discussions that can be had just based on one piece of literature alone. Now in thinking about literature, I think the definition is expanding: let's look at it! How about song lyrics, movies, music videos or even conversations within your own life- what type of literature is that? You can get personal in your understanding of literature and it can seem intimidating because you may not know how to relate yourself to some guy like Shakespeare; but are ways for you to interpret pieces of literature so that it makes sense to you, and I can help you with that!

Question:

Common question I've experienced multiple times: How do I make my writing sound better, and more professional? I know the content, but have so many thoughts I do not know how to organize them all

Answer:

Well, I usually like to ask you to list some of those difficulties you face the most: do you struggle with punctuation, word choice, grammar, or where to put content in the essays? We can start there, and I can help you develop some healthy writing habits to help with all aspects of your writing. I often recommend, even if its not the most fun thing, to actually read and listen to the English language: you can read brief blog posts like those on Medium. com or magazines of interest to you; doesn't matter- the more. you read, the larger your vocabulary gets, and the more your writing improves! I can also help you write out your ideas to piece them together, which creates an outline and a thesis you can follow to keep your essay strong and on topic!

Answer:

Whether using a digital tool such as Powerpoint or Prezi, or just giving a lecture or workshop on your own, it is crucial to ensure time for attendees to ask questions and absorb any knowledge you have given. Repetition is also key, as is developing confidence and tools to help you remember the material you have prepared. It is pertinent to keep information current and be prepared with material beforehand so that you are speaking to the audience rather than your notes!
