About me

After studying for my A Levels in one a one-year period and achieving an A grade in every module I moved to Bristol to study Philosophy at the University of Bristol and then to London to complete my AHRC-supported MA in Analytic Philosophy and Linguistics. Since completing my MA I have worked as a private and public teacher, writer, broadcaster, director and musician in London. I regularly make radio programs for the Arts Council-supported radio station Resonance 104.4 FM and write for international publications including the New Statesman. I also work in the theatre and regularly engage in projects with the Olivier award-winning theatre company, Opera Up Close as well as having been supported by the Arts Council to work on several individual productions. Having recently graduated from the prestigious Paris-based Ecole Philipe Gaulier, I am currently working on several theatre shows in London as well as managing my own business merging tuition and theatre education.

Tutor Experience

I have been providing private tuition since 2008 and have worked with a wide range of students, from the ages of 5-89! I pride myself on helping students and parents reach their educational goals. Recent successes include my students gaining entry to prestigious schools including Colet Court, Eton and Charterhouse, achieving A* grades in History, Philosophy and Psychology and helping my BA and MA students gain firsts in the History of Art and Philosophy. I am a passionate and engaging tutor who works hard to help my students achieve their aims and develop ways of thinking that will help them in all aspects of their future educational needs. I see my role not just as helping a student pass an exam or write an essay but giving students the skills that will mean that the student no longer needs tutoring and is able to meet any challenge that comes their way - to truly make students creative independent thinkers!

I believe my strengths as a tutor lays in several areas:

1) A wide knowledge and skill base to deal with various subjects and syllabi as well as an ability to address specific student needs.
2) The ability to combine the required course content with the practical skills which are necessary to show a student knows that content.
3) Knowing how to create a safe, receptive and creative environment with my pupils. A place where they are encouraged to think for themselves and grow as individuals as well as learning the content required to pass exams.
