About me

I received a distinction for an MA in Writing for Performance at Goldsmiths, University of London last year and have since produced a festival of new theatre writing and continue to work on writing scripts. I am passionate about cinema and literature and spend a great deal of time reading when I am not writing or teaching.

Tutor Experience

I have been tutoring for the past two years, both in person and online, teaching primarily English Language and English Literature to a range of students. I have students at the age of 4 and 5 who I am teaching to read and write before they begin school, students who are at Key stage 1 and 2 level, to whom I offer assistance on improving and developing their skills in reading and comprehension as well as writing and sentence development. I also teach 11+ English and 13+ English as well as GCSE. At GCSE level I have worked with students on their coursework, both creative writing and essay writing. I have also worked with students on their text analysis and composition skills, assisting them with writing techniques and exam practice. At A Level, I work with students studying English Literature, and Drama and Theatre Studies. At this stage, I have noticed that often students require assistance with learning to structure their arguments and also with revision skills as well as a focus on the subjects and information they are working with. When working with students at University Level, I have mostly taken sessions online, offering support with critical thinking and developing an argument in essay writing. I am always concerned with engaging with my students properly; really listening to them and then finding a method of tutoring which will be most useful to them. I believe that no student is the same, and therefore all students require specific tuition which is designed around their needs.
