There are usually two different types of literature assignment:
- Reading – Because teachers don’t have time to read everything you need to read in class, they will ask you quite a lot to continue your reading at home. Many of your assignments will be to read a certain book, play, biography, poem, or pages in a specific book. It is important to do these types of assignments because the material you will be reading on your own will usually be used on an exam or other written assignment in the future.
- Essays – Writing assignments in literature courses usually start with reading something (see previous bullet) and then writing an essay about what you’ve learned. Many times, the essay will be difficult because it requires you to analyze the story and characters yourself and add your own point of view to what you’ve read. Other times it requires creative writing skills which may take time to develop, especially when you are expected to use them “on demand”.
Anyone studying literature, whether as a major or just one course, could use all the help they can get. Learning with someone has its benefits, but learning with a private tutor is a huge advantage:
- Brainstorming is part of literature assignments and being able to talk to someone about your ideas, what you think of the material you’ve read, and how to express yourself will help you understand what needs to be done. Doing that with someone who can guide you along the way and correct any errors is immensely useful and will save you a lot of time.
- When working with a private tutor on an essay assignment, you designate a certain amount of time for the lesson. That means that the tutor will do everything they can to take full advantage of the allotted time and will make sure you don’t lose focus or daydream in the process. In the end, this will save a lot of time because you will be spending less time on each essay.
- Working with a pro is always an advantage because you can ask questions and dive deeper into the material you are learning. You can go over what the professor said, gain a deeper understanding everything and really enjoy the learning process.
