Personal Description:

I'm a graduate of Durham University, where I studied English Literature. Beyond English, my interests include music production and songwriting, which I am pursuing professionally whilst teaching English literature.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as a fencing coach at Cobham Fencing Club, supporting foilists at the British Youth Championships as well as other tournaments.

I am fortunate to have learned from some great teachers, who have inspired me to teach (such as fencing coach Ziemek Wojciechowski). Something I’ve learned from Ziemek is that ideal training and learning should be flow-like, in that it shouldn’t be so challenging as to have a stalling effect or so easy as to allow the student to become bored or lose focus.

I have taught music theory and guitar informally, which has helped me hone my skill for creating frameworks that allow new ideas and skills to be learned most effectively. My students have found it useful when I have explained ideas using memorable images. Diatonic intervals, for instance, may be drawn in a circle and then, as the circle is rotated (and the root note changes), it becomes clear how 'the modes’ work.

Tutoring Approach:

I am particularly strong on strategy and planning, which allows students to get to grips with modules, authors, and essays in a very efficient and effective way. As such, my teaching style is very much developing the skills for approaching unfamiliar ideas, tackling questions, and structuring discussions — applied to particular areas of literature.

My strength is communicating key ideas in a clear way that allows students to really take the best approach to their exams and essays.

I offer a free 30 minute consultation prior to tuition sessions, in which we can discuss your goals and the subject matter you are covering.
