It has been one hectic year. As 2015 draws to a close, a new year beckons, and I have been privileged to teach new titles. Not all the new texts are featured here. Some of them are completely new to me, i.e. I have not read them before and some I taught about 5 years or more ago. The trouble or rather the challenge (if I look at it positively) is that for lower sec and IP Lit, the texts change – new ones replaced erstwhile titles. Indeed even for “A” level Lit, the same reality applies and so poor the Lit tutor is always kept busy. So tutoring Lit has to involve more than just pecuniary motives; there must be an abiding passion for the subject, a dedication to helping students appreciate the subject and a strong desire for them to do their best for it. So call me and tell me what texts your child or you the student are doing for next year.
