    Hello TSRians!

    A brief introduction: I graduated a couple of years ago, having completed my degree in English Literature, and I am feeling an increasingly strong urge to pass on my knowledge and experience to younger students. …

    Now, an opportunity has come up in a local sixth form for me to run voluntary mentoring sessions with A level students, and I really want to make it as productive and helpful for the students as I possibly can.

    I have a few ideas about what would have helped me at that age, but I really want a broad range of opinions, so my question is this:

    If you could have a slot with an English graduate once a fortnight, to help you with your A levels, what would you want to focus on?

    Any suggestions at all?

    Help finding quotes? Discussion of textual themes? Workshops on poetic meter? Advice on using literary criticism in essays?
