About me

I have a very broad and eclectic range of interests within the realm of English Language and Literature and have studied across many different periods.

I focused my degree towards the study of Elizabethan and Jacobean drama and received first class hons. in all coursework and assessment in this field. As such I would make a particularly strong tutor for anyone tackling Shakespeare or his contemporaries... Modernist writers such as Joyce, Woolf and Pound constituted another primary field of interest while reading for my BA so I would certainly be keen to work with any tutees currently studying the The Modern Novel.

I am also an actor and professional theatre director and have direct experience in working with dramatic texts as they were intended to be used - for the stage. I love being able to bring this knowledge and experience into my lessons and use this side of my career to inform the classes I teach.

Tutor Experience

I always build a completely unique scheme of work for each individual client and I pride myself on a creative and colourful teaching style which employs tasks and assignments to engage my students with complex ideas in a clear and accessible fashion. I always keep my lessons interactive and use visual stimuli such as images and videos to support my tutee's learning process...

I have achieved excellent results with numerous clients receiving the esteemed 8 // 9 Grade in their English exams.

In the 6 years since I began tutoring my work has mostly centred on helping A-Level and University level English students with both coursework and exam prep. I have worked with some of London's leading agencies including Bonas Macfarlane and Craig De Silva and have undertaken in depth work-experience at Grafton Primary School, London. I have also tutored students at some of the UK's leading independent schools including Harrow and Westminster.
