About Me

I am a teacher passionate about passing on my love of learning to my students. I love discussing theoretical issues in Geography, English or other related fields but more so I love exploring how these ideas look in the real world - whether through case studies in Geography or through close textual analysis in English Literature for example. Even though I help my students to achieve the best possible results in exams, I believe teaching is about more than just learning what to write in an exam and nurturing a genuine curiosity for the subject is of tantamount importance. I tailor my sessions to the interests of my students but I also hope to introduce students to new concepts, such as Glaciation, Globalisation or Fin de Siècle Literature, where possible and ignite a lifelong interest of questioning how they fit into the broader picture of our complex, intriguing world.

Tutor Experience

I have taught in a number of schools in the last several years, including a top-performing grammar school in West Yorkshire and an English international school in Budapest. I have taught and tutored in person and online for a wide range of student abilities, from students who wanted help with essay structure and exam technique to others who wanted to achieve the very highest grades to prepare themselves for university. I also work as an examiner for AQA and will be marking the Physical Geography GCSE paper this coming summer.

Topic Expertise

I predominantly teach A Level and have significant experience teaching both Human and Physical Geography for the A Level and International A Level. I currently teach Cambridge International A Level and iGCSE though I have previously taught AQA and continue to mark for the exam board. In addition, I am familiar with WJEC, Edexcel and OCR examinations.

I have very successfully tutored in GCSE/iGCSE/MYP English Literature for a number of years and have much experience with A Level and International A Level, particularly Cambridge and AQA. I have tutored a wide range of texts such as A Woman of No Importance, Regeneration, The World's Wife, Much Ado About Nothing, Blue Remembered Hills, A Room With A View and many others, however I am happy to discuss any texts and I am a voracious reader myself.
