Personal Description:

I often feel like a lawyer for my students! Sometimes we must face some hard decisions and truths together in order to really achieve the best results possible - this may mean having to change sets or have some frank conversations about the provisions that you are receiving from your school - but this vital information has meant that many students that I teach actually achieve their potential and get their schools to do what is best for them, rather than the conventional 'cookie-cutter' methods that, sadly, prevails and fails many of them. I am a qualified secondary school English and Drama teacher with over 5 years of experience. I am committed to getting my students the best possible grade that they can achieve. My Drama teaching also makes me more creative than your average English teacher - I like to help students learn in unusual or unexpected ways which they remember (and enjoy!)

I attended Dr Challoner's Grammar School for GCSE and A Level study before reading Drama and English at Loughborough University in 2006. I received my BA Hons Drama and English Degree from Loughborough University in 2009, securing a high second class upper honours (2.1).

I'm very proud of my student cohort in all of their success again this academic year, with a sweep of excellent grades and every student achieving their aspirations, be it starting at a selective secondary school, obtaining a good grade in their subjects, successfully moving on to their A Level studies, or achieving a placement for their chosen University.

Tutoring Experience:

I qualified as an English and Drama Teacher in 2010 at Dr Challoner's High School before completing my NQT year at the prestigious private school, The Royal Masonic. I then gained further classroom experience with a broader range of student needs at Queen Elizabeth's Girls' School. Since then, I chose to move away from classroom teaching and have since been tutoring students on a small group or one on one basis. I now have students from the age of 4 all the way up to adult learners, and I am very fluent with all of the different assessment criteria for 11 plus, GCSE and A Level examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

The most important thing for me is to identify areas for development to help progress students. It is usually clear quite quickly what is most important to improve, whether it be the creativity of responses, the structure of the work, firming up subject knowledge or understanding the examinations themselves (or all of the above!) in most cases, I will spend most of the first hour assessing the student's current abilities through reading some passages and discussion and looking through school work (if available). I usually then debrief the parents and student with my verdict of what needs to be done and a structure is put in place of how we will achieve the target in the time that we have together.

I have a strong knowledge of AQA, OCR, EdExcel and Cambridge syllabi both for GCSEs and IGCSEs.p and at AS and A2 level. Tutoring sessions will cover key skills needed depending on which examining body they will be sitting. I am a very experienced tutor having helped many students succeed and I am fully confident that I can help you, with completely tailor made lesson plans that match how you learn best.

I am very good at using assessment for learning and making sure that students walk away from every session with a clear understanding of how they can improve and progress, which helps them feel very positive about the whole process.

I will use a series of strategies including exemplars, unseen and seen texts, examination papers and (where appropriate) media and ICT based learning, too.

Please enjoy the brief video I have made for a taster! I hope to hear from you soon.
