As an Associate Lecturer in English Literarure at Tübingen University, Germany I have designed and taught courses on Working Class British Fiction; Twentieth and Twenty-First Century Migration Literature; Twentieth Century American Poetry; Romantic Poetry; Post-War British Drama; Shakespeare.
I have also led seminars and tutored at UCL, and have been a private tutor since 2015.
I always build a completely unique scheme of work for each individual client and I pride myself on a creative and colourful teaching style which employs tasks and assignments to engage my students with complex ideas in a clear and accessible fashion. I always keep my lessons interactive and use visual stimuli such as images and videos to support my tutee's learning process...
I have achieved excellent results with numerous clients receiving the esteemed 8 // 9 Grade in their English exams.
In the 6 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.

I like to make learning a language an enjoyable experience, whether that be French or English. I believe it should be fun, satisfying, exciting and mainly conversational, alongside the study of grammar, writing and reading. I have the ability to adjust my teaching method in order to suit the learner, as I believe everybody comes at languages from a different angle, some from an aural perspective and others from a more grammatical understanding. It is important for me to understand the learners' approach so I can help them fully immerse in the subject. I believe that languages are a vital skill in this global world today and would love to help you improve and work towards fluency in either French or English. I am happy to teach the basics as-well as the following examinations; IBDP, GCSE, A-level and university level in both languages.
Music tutoring; I tutor Music GCSE and A.S/A-Level, piano grades 1-7, voice (jazz/pop), composition and music theory levels 1-8.
I believe ultimately the study of music should be fun and fulfilling and that the fundamental basics of music (e.g. scales/understanding of harmony & theory/listening skills/analytical skills) are required in order to progress with excellence. Musical examinations are not essential in order to be a great musician, but they do help one improve technique, precision and theory. GCSE and A-level music may well be necessary in order to study music at university level, particularly at music conservatoires. I consider music to be mainly about training the ear and playing with meaning and expression.
I have 10 years of experience working as a Private Tutor in Cheltenham Spa, London, Moscow and internationally. My experience has ranged from working as a Governess and Residential Tutor for UHNW and VVIP families, to working as an outreach tutor for children with SEN and behavioural difficulties, to working overseas with children who have been victims of trauma and conflict.
For the last 5 years, I have continuously been teaching online, and have taught students as young as 5 years of age, right up to experienced business professionals and retired language learners. This experience has taught me vital strategies in engaging students online, built upon an understanding of age, learning style, objectives, technical abilities, personalities and attention span! In every case, I have built a strong positive rapport with clients and have frequently continued to stay in touch with clients or families even after they have passed their exams or succeeded in their objectives.
I have been a professional tutor since 2006.
Across all of the different subjects I teach, I always notice the same thing: the main difficulty that learners encounter is getting overwhelmed by what they're trying to learn. It could be that there seems to be simply too much material to cover; it could be that the concepts seem too difficult; it could be that the whole thing causes anxiety for some completely different reason which is apparently unrelated to the 'academic' side of things.
I help remove anxiety, regardless of what form it might take, in whatever way seems like it will help each individual most. Before long, it becomes possible to see the task in hand with different eyes – indeed, more importantly, at this point most of my students come to see their own abilities entirely differently. They may have come to me with a fixed idea of what they are 'bad' at, but I help them to realise that they have skills they hardly suspected.
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 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.
I am fluent in three languages and have experience teaching drama to children and adults. I've been doing online tutoring for Theatre Studies, English and Chinese for about two years.
For Drama students:
My lesson usually consists of a warm up, recap of the previous lesson, or a song! Then we'll get into main lesson content. I use powerpoint, images and video clips for references. I would also recommend books for you to read and some practical homework/quiz for you to prepare!
If you need help with working on a monologue, I am also happy to be your acting coach. Please message me for specific requests.
For Chinese students:
For Primary students, storytelling and writing will be something that we could do together. For Secondary students, we will practice comprehension and structuring an essay, go through the syllabus and past paper to prepare for your exams.
If you already speak Chinese and need someone to practice/ recap, I am happy to share culture, history and other interesting topics with you.
I always tailor made my lesson plans for students based on their objectives. Please feel free to drop me a message!
I have been tutoring since for over ten years. Director of Shacademy Ltd/The SHAC 2008-2013. A creative workshop company I set up in her home town of Devon with young people in rural & urban communities. Shacademy ran workshops & tuition sessions in London & Devon.
