Personal Description:

I am a seasoned, professional tutor with eight years of teaching experience.
I hold a BA from from York University in English (First with Distinction),
an MA from the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama in Actor Training & Coaching (Distinction),
and a PGCE from the National Institute of Education (Singapore).
I grew up in Singapore, but moved to the UK because of William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and Judi Dench.

Tutoring Experience:

From 2005 to 2010, I taught O' and A' Level English and Literature in Singapore.
From 2009 to 2010, I was Head of Department (English) in a secondary school in Singapore.
From 2011 to the present, I have been part-time tutor at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama.
I was also Text Associate at the Shakespeare's Globe for two years, where I coached actors in verse-speaking.

Tutoring Approach:

I am patient, friendly, and enjoy strong rapport with students.
I am experienced in quickly identifying areas of challenge,
learning styles, and desired outcomes, and I tailor the tutoring
process to produce significant and lasting improvement.

I am results-oriented, and believe that replicable success
comes from developing intrinsic enjoyment in work. I coach
students to find something that interests them personally
in each area of study they approach, then build rigour and
self-motivation on those foundations of interests. I encourage
students to be creative in developing their own methods of work.

I believe in a three-stage, cyclical process: find confidence
in one’s own potential; develop techniques and processes
to achieve that potential; and then plan to increase that
potential, which leads back to the start of the cycle.

I teach close reading, essay writing, course work, and exam preparation.
I also consult on essays for university applications. Past students of mine
have matriculated in Ivy League and Russell Group universities.

If you need support for continuous assessment, or intense coaching
for an upcoming examination, or advice for university application,
or tutoring for undergraduate essay writing, or just someone to guide you
through that impenetrable novel or Shakespeare play, I can help.
