About Me

I am an avid reader and theatregoer and can usually be found with my nose in a book or watching a play! Graduating from Oxford in 2010 and LAMDA in 2013, I have been working as a tutor, actor and writer in London for ten years.

Tutor Experience

I have been taking private tutorials for eight years now and have tutored over ninety students. I specialise in GCSE and A Level students as well as those applying to Oxbridge; those who have been preparing for exams have consistently moved up at least a grade; those who have been working towards entrance exams have gained their places. As well as subject specific tuition, I have also helped students who struggle to structure their work.

I have been assisting Oxbridge Applications for five years: with interview technique, ELAT preparation and personal statements. I have a very individual approach to tutoring, tailoring my method and focus to suit each student’s particular strengths and weaknesses.

Broadly speaking my emphasis is on ensuring that the tutee improves not only their academic achievement but also their ability to recognise, for themselves, where and how their own work can be improved. I have found that this method results in a quicker and more thorough improvement across all subjects.

Topic Expertise

At Oxford I wrote my dissertations on Tennyson, Shakespeare, Brontë and Woolf.

I have taught, within the last 2 years: all A LEVEL and GCSE English Literature and Language syllabuses; Philosophy AQA; History OCR and EDEXCEL.

Client Reviews

Lack of structure, time being wasted completing a table whereby the tutor sat in silence and spoke only 3 times.
