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.

I love my subjects, and enjoy finding different, engaging ways through which to help my students grapple with them. This is why I started working for Spires and other tutoring companies just over 3 years ago now, helping school pupils and adults alike with everything from A Level English to Greek language learning. I currently work as a research assistant in Oxford University's Phonetics Laboratory, but before this I worked for seven months in a girls' boarding school in Oxford providing Sixth Form students with academic and pastoral support, coaching many through their Oxbridge applications. I have also volunteered over the years in primary and secondary schools, helping students who are on the autism spectrum with their work and communication skills. This has given me experience with pupils of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

I have been teaching and tutoring for five years now and have acquired a wide range of teaching experiences and skills. I began when I was still at school by tutoring a GCSE history student whilst I was doing my A-Levels. I also volunteered at an after-school homework club. I would tutor the children on an individual basis, helping them with their homework and keeping track of their progress. I also began to take up classroom teaching jobs, going to Kenya in partnership with the charity Hand-in-Hand to teach English, History and Politics to 14-17 year old students at Mogonjet School.
At university I continued to pursue teaching opportunities teaching at the Keio Summer School for Japanese university students each summer of my undergraduate degree, in which I taught history, debating and drama. I have also continued to pursue teaching opportunities abroad, completing the six week i-Learner internship in Hong Kong in the summer of 2018, in which I taught 12 to 18 year old’s a wide range of topics. In the summer of 2019 I did the Educamp internship in Beijing. I taught at three ten-day camps at Camford Royal School, teaching history, creative writing and sports. I also helped to tutor my Camford home room students for the "My Dream" speech competition in which students competed for a multi-thousand pound scholarship to the school by giving a speech in English about their life goals. The students that I tutored came first and second place.
I have also continued as an individual tutor. During the spring of 2019 I worked for CamExpress, an online tutoring company based in Shanghai. I taught online lessons and created online lectures for 16-18 year-old students who were considering applying to Oxbridge for university, as well as giving advice about the Oxford application process.
I have over eight years experience tutoring for the 7+, 8+, 9+, 10+, 11+ and Common Entrance exams in Maths, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

St Paul’s (boys and girls)

And many more.
I have an extensive knowledge of London schools, both private and grammar, and can offer help and guidance throughout the application process.
I also tutor French up to University level, as well as English and History up to A-level.
Finally, I also help with Oxbridge and UCAS applications, for students wanting to study English and History. All of my students (11 in total) received places at their colleges of choice.
Having taught English full-time at senior school, I have a good knowledge of mainstream schooling and curricula, as well as experience in the classroom. I have taught IGCSE, A-Level and to all ages from 9-18, as well as Beginners’ Latin.

I have worked as a professional teacher for the last 5 years. Because of this, I am very knowledgeable about my subject and what it takes to be successful in the examinations. I consistently look for new creative and engaging ways to present material and one of my best qualities as a teacher is my ability to break down difficult material, making it both easily digested but also relevant to the student so it is easily remembered. My recent exam success rate is a 95% pass rate, with 60% achieving A-A*. I am very organised and efficient in my teaching so will always be prepared for any online tutoring.
