About Me

I have lived and worked in British boarding schools for the last seventeen years, teaching a wide variety of subjects, looking after girls in my boarding houses, coaching sport, debating and Model United Nations, and getting as involved as I could in Drama and Music. I have helped hundreds of pupils through UCAS and SAT prep, and love to help families navigate the complexities of the UK system.

Tutor Experience

I have taught History, English Language and Literature, Politics, Religious Studies, Philosophy and Geography up to A-Level and IB from Benenden to Charterhouse, and I am extremely experienced in preparing pupils for scholarships and Common Entrance, UCAS and US admissions. I have examined for years, and produce excellent and specific resources. I take a very supportive and pupil-led approach to tutoring, as what works for one will not work for another - flexibility and responsiveness is key

Topic Expertise

I have excellent subject knowledge across the full range of my offering, and am a very experienced marker and examiner, with a strong ability to deconstruct and make accessible syllabi and markschemes. With in depth knowledge of the workings of leading public schools the admissions support I can provide is specifically tailored to the needs of the pupil I am working with. I have wide experience of all the UK exam boards, iGCSE and CIE, International Baccalaureate and the US SAT.
