About Me

I have a PGCE in Secondary English, and a M-ed in Visual Impairment where I studied the impact of teaching social skills to students with visual impairment and autism.

I’m a theatre and dance lover, and I write occasionally for Teaching Drama magazine.

I’ve recently learned to swim - I think we should always continue to learn!

I am a specialist academic mentor for university students with disabilities.

Tutor Experience

Experienced in teaching the following:
KS3 English
KS4 English (language and literature)
A Level English literature
Functional English

KS3 Drama
GCSE and BTEC Drama
A Level Drama (including Media)

A Level Classical Civilisation

I aim to make my lessons interactive and accessible. Because I work frequently with visually impaired learners I am keen to ensure all materials and activities are student friendly and accessible. I like to have conversations about what works for individual students so that lessons can be tailored specifically. I enjoy getting to know my students well to enable me to teach them effectively. I have taught in mainstream schools, and also SEN environments. I have also supported students one to one with functional English skills and been a private tutor to KS3,4 & 5 students.

Functional English: Pearson

GCSE and A Level Drama: I have taught all exam boards and have contributed to text books for Pearson. As an ex Stage Manager I have an excellent knowledge of the technical theatre options.
