Recent Literature Tutor Class Reviews From Our Students

Student Professional Tutor Date Subject Rating Comment
Alice 18 Jun 2020 Literature
Darren did Last Duchess analysis. He is very happy with the lesson with Alice.
Alice 04 Jun 2020 Literature
Darren said that he has learnt a lot in the hour lesson with Alice.
Alice 03 Jun 2020 Literature
Alice gave a detailed and comprehensive feedback on a piece of writing by Darren, which compared Exposure and Bayonet Charge. Alice explanations were logical, clear to read and informative. It was great that Alice told Darren what he did well and the next steps he needs to take to improve. She also gave suggestions on how to go about doing the improvements. Darren has been more motivated to write and this is all thanks to Alice. I am very happy with the service.

Online Literature Tuition FAQs

Why study Literature?

Studying Literature offers graduates a wealth of job prospects. This is because graduates in literature are needed in a wide variety of careers, from editors, journalists, politicians, legal institutions, advertising agencies, to English professors. The study of literature is an intellectual challenge that many people find satisfying. Moreover, literature is a powerful tool in society that can often shape and influence our culture. 

A degree in literature is an excellent starting point for people who want to become writers or educators. You can pursue a career as a writer, professional reader, teacher, or professor after graduation. There are so many opportunities associated with this degree that it is the perfect choice for future professionals.

In literary studies, you will learn how to read and think about texts critically and analytically. Critical reading skills will allow you to gain insight into complex social and philosophical issues that surround us today. 

The world of literature is a dynamic and ever-changing one, always absorbing new ideas and influences. In this ever-evolving landscape, there are employment opportunities for anyone willing to work in any area of the industry. You never know where the next big success will come from. In fact, it could be you who takes the baton and writes something moving and magical. As long as there is imagination in humanity, there will be a need for people who study literature to teach society how to express emotions in the most decent way possible. 

What further university degrees is Literature useful for?

After your bachelor's degree in literature, you can pursue a number of opportunities for postgraduate studies. It all depends on what area of literature interests you the most. For example, if you want to become a writer yourself, you could pursue a master's in creative writing. 

There are also other specialised areas of interest, such as masters in Shakespeare and Renaissance Literary Culture. Some courses focus on the literature of particular ethnicities, such as Masters in Black British Literature or Masters in European Literature and Interculturalism. 

Interestingly, you can also do a Master's in Translation and Interpreting Studies. This will allow you to work alongside government officials or in international forums such as the UN or on the benches of the EU.

What careers can studying English Literature lead to?

Studying literature might seem as an academically oriented field, but in truth, literature majors are required in multiple fields across multiple careers. 

Here are some career options for those who major in literature: 

How does Literature help with Journalism

Studying literature not only expands your knowledge and understanding of the world but also gives you an appreciation for words and language. This will help you in journalism, as journalists need to understand complex texts in order to convey politically and grammatically correct messages. As a journalist, you will need an astute understanding of language in order to proofread articles and news stories or newspapers. The skills acquired through a literature degree are considered valuable assets for aspiring journalists, as they show that the person already knows how to think critically and communicate clearly. 

Studying literature is a great asset when it comes to interviewing and writing about people. By studying language, structure, rhetoric, etc. in an academic setting, you open yourself up to doing more than just one type of journalism. You can write investigative reports, political analysis, or commentary because you learned things like formal rhetorical analysis in your literature studies.

Studying literature will give you new ways of looking at the world that is perfect for journalism. You will acquire a more sophisticated understanding of dialogue, meaning, and tone that can help you analyse interactions between different parties.

This is why many famous journalists started their careers by studying English or journalism before moving into journalism. Even famous techies like Bill Gates studied English before revolutionising modern communication with Microsoft.
