Personal Description:

I am a PhD graduate with degrees from Oxford University and the University of St Andrews. I love to read and think about books, and I love the way that the study of English encompasses so many issues about the way the world works. I have extensive experience of tutoring and working with children in both formal and voluntary settings.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a range of classroom and 1 to 1 teaching experience. As an English tutor, I have worked with a range of students from primary to PhD level, including students who were gifted and talented and some that had special needs such as autism and English as an additional language. I am experienced at preparing students for exams, school and university entrance, and I am happy to help with revision on a short-term basis as well as longer-term goals.
After qualifying with the widely recognized CELTA certificate in English Language Teaching, I spent several summers teaching English language to classes of children and teenagers aged from 10 to 18. At the University of St Andrews, I was employed for 3 years as a tutor for undergraduate students in the English and Music departments. As a violin and piano teacher, I have taught students aged from 4 to 18. I have also worked with children aged 5 to 12 in a voluntary capacity, leading after school clubs and holiday clubs.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that English is a really exciting subject, and I come to my lessons with an enthusiasm to inspire my pupils to think about their texts in a new way. I like to teach literature with plenty of questions and discussion, enabling students to take charge of their own learning. I teach the same approach to writing skills to my GCSE pupils that I use with my university undergraduate students, so that my pupils learn techniques that will stand them in good stead throughout their academic and future careers. I find that through pushing the boundaries between school and university education, students find the subject more exciting and are more motivated to develop their own ideas with the creativity and flair that is needed for the top marks. With younger children, I use a range of activities and games to make learning fun. I keep my lessons structured but varied, and I share my lesson plans and term overviews with students and parents.
