I am an English Literature graduate from Oxford University. I am passionate about educating young people and ensuring they reach their highest potential. To date I have worked as a private tutor, mentor, workshop facilitator and coach. As a private tutor I have taught English at GCSE and A-Level and have prepared Ox-bridge candidates, most of whom have been offered a place at Oxford or Cambridge. I have worked with Eton and Mactrac Digital Education to deliver the Eton X language programme, specialising in leadership and management skills for young students. In this role I have also interviewed and prepared prospective tutors, ensuring that tutors deliver the best in digital education. I continue to find new ways to encourage students to perform as their most confident selves when faced with an academic challenge or when trying to reach a specified goal, such as entry into a desired college or university. I have a body of experience as a workshop facilitator, including using creative writing and drama to help unlock student’s potential. I do this work on a voluntary basis and have used it to help foster confidence and initiative in young people and adults. My focus is goal orientated whilst maintaining a commitment to a highly individualised approach. This is powerful because the student is met on both an educational and personal level, providing an individual , allowing and em...

I have achieved excellent results with numerous clients receiving the esteemed 8 // 9 Grade in their English exams.
In the five years since I began tutoring my work has mostly centred on helping A-Level English students with both coursework and exam prep. I have worked with some of London's leading agencies including Bonas Macfarlane and Craig De Silva and have undertaken in depth work-experience at Grafton Primary School, London. I have also tutored students at some of the UK's leading independent schools including Harrow and Westminster.

Professional teaching experience
I am a professional teacher of English, with 4 years of experience in both state and independent sectors. In my teacher training (through the prestigious Teach First Leadership Development Programme), I gained a distinction, and have been promoted every year of my teaching career. In my previous school, I ran staff training sessions to improve teaching practice for high ability students, and worked as a coach for fellow teachers. I have taught GCSE, IGCSE, A Level and IB qualifications, as well as coaching and mentoring students through UCAS and Oxbridge Entrance. In my teaching role until now I have had little time for paid tuition, but working on-on-one with students outside of class time is part of my daily practice as a teacher, especially when students are struggling or need extra challenge. I have worked extensively with a wide range of ages (11-18) and abilities, as well as with SEN and EAL students.
Paid tuition work outside of teaching
Currently, I tutor one student outside of school as she has needed extra support due to English being her second language. Previously, I tutored a student on creative writing techniques - this is a particular interest of mine.
I have been teaching Drama for over 8 years after going through GCSE, A-level and University. I can give you those tips for your both your practical and written drama exams (those written exams were daunting, I know) I can help you with the play texts (Shakespeare, Ibsen, Checkhov, etc) and how to write 'practically'.
I am also experienced in working on monologues to help you prepare for an audition.
I can also offer Chinese lessons, whether you want to learn it for your GCSE or A-level exams, or simply practice speaking a new language. Let me know.
The oldest academic discipline...English. To be good at English means to excel in many areas. I am fully equipped to teach this subject to Primary School, GCSE, AS and A Level, Adult Learner, SEN and ESOL. I am a BA Hons graduate in English Literature and Language (2:1). I have tutoring, journalism, proof-reading and book writing experience. I have recently tutored in a few projects for University students to help them achieve the top grades. I take care and pride in my students and work hard to make each one a success. I also have experience teaching Primary school English in France and have even been a children's entertainer! My method of one-on-one tutoring focuses on upmost care for my student's needs and utilising methods for better learning practices. I'd be happy to answer any questions and explain the process to you. I truly love the English discipline and knowing that there are so many students who would love to improve their English fills me with utter happiness and the best motivation for helping the student fledglings fly in the subject. I love to fill all my students with confidence and feel very rewarded in doing so.
I also tutor Psychology and Drama to all levels as I studied these for College A Levels. Many aspects of English integrate with these. Psychology is for those with an interest in the incredible workings of the human mind and Drama is for the more expressive students who feel they have a place on stage. Both these subjects have influenced me throughout my life so I have a natural passion and aptitude for them so will be more than happy to help my student succeed in any one of these too. You may select more than one subject for me to tutor you on and I only tutor what I specialise in.
I am an online private tutor which means I can cater to your every need in an easy, accessible mode. It is a two way interaction where I guide you through what it is you are studying and suggest/correct and provide you with consistent feedback.
