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 for Drama and Theatre Magazine (Mark Allen Group)

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:
GCSE and IGCSE English Language and Literature - all boards
IGCSE World Literature
A Level English literature - all boards

A Level Drama & Theatre

A Level Classical Civilisation
GCSE Classical Civilisation.

I have been an English and Drama teacher since 2003, and have taught in a wide range of settings including state schools, independent and specialist schools. I also have a lot of online teaching experience and this is an area that I particularly enjoy.
I encourage tutoring sessions which are a conversation rather than a lecture. I believe that a successful class is one where the student feels confident enough to make mistakes and to ask questions.
I am calm and patient, and love to have laughter in my sessions. We all learn better when we’re happy and relaxed!
I am particularly good at helping students to raise their grades if they are stuck between two grade boundaries. I can help with confidence building and enjoy tailoring sessions to specific topics that students are struggling with to get the best results.

Topic Expertise

GCSE/IGCSE English and A Level English: All exam boards
Functional English: Pearson

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