About Me

I have a BA in English Literature from the University of Cambridge and a MA in Directing Fiction from the National Film and Television School. I first started tutoring whilst studying for my A-Levels and rapidly expanded a network of tutees in my area. I find tutoring intellectually stimulating and incredibly fulfilling, and have worked on over eighty placements ranging from 7+ to University Level. As a tutor, I am fortunate enough to see the direct benefits of my work and take pride in watching my students progress. I try to imbue my students with a love of learning and take a personalised approach to tutoring, tailoring my style to each individual.

Tutor Experience

My experience is wide-ranging, although I have focused much of my attention on the Pre-Test and 11+ exams. I consider myself particularly well-equipped to tutor children in this age group and have a huge range of resources to offer them, from past papers to tip sheets through to handouts containing inspirational pieces of creative writing.

As my approach to teaching is rooted in the belief that students do better when they are passionate about the task at hand, it is incredibly important for me to find ways in which my students can engage with their subject and enjoy our sessions. l look for ways to spark their interest by aligning the task at hand with their personal interests.

I have plenty of experience teaching different kinds of children and ensure that I adapt my style to each. For students lacking in self-confidence, I take a gentle and kind approach, giving them constant encouragement. For students who are already highly motivated, I push and challenge them even more. I have found that the skills required of me as a film director are very transferrable here.
