About me

I am a recent Cambridge grad currently working as an actor, and have gained a place at AMTA, a prestigious Musical Theatre school for graduates, in London next year. This love of theatre is what inspired me to study English Literature at university, and pursuing a theatrical career allows me to exercise my academic and vocational passions simultaneously.

Tutor Experience

I have worked as a tutor for 5-16 year olds for the past seven years. As such, I have experienced, and thoroughly enjoyed, teaching a diverse range of ages. I am familiar with the 11+, GCSE, A Level, and IB English Literature syllabus, as well as the Oxbridge application process, having recently graduated from Queens' College Cambridge. My priorities as a tutor are patience, empathy, and personalissation.

Patience is particularly important within a tutoring environment: if someone isn’t understanding a concept, it important not to get bogged down by frustration and instead, face the problem from a different angle whilst maintaining kindness and composure. Academia can, at times, be incredibly stressful, especially as exams and applications approach. I have faced similar stresses and difficulties relatively recently, and can help you to deal with these difficulties with kindness and compassion. Working with younger children and those with additional needs has allowed me to develop an ability to explain difficult concepts clearly and concisely, as well as an ability to find creative ways to make the material accessible to them as individuals.
