I am an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher of English at a high-achieving grammar school in Maidstone. Currently an NQT, I am classed as an outstanding teacher, and completed a degree in English Literature in 2016, achieving a First.
I began gaining teaching experience several years ago whilst working in a school. As a teacher, I have worked as part of a very experienced and successful English department throughout and beyond my training. I am experienced in teaching the skills required for both English language and literature, across the full secondary age range (11-18).
As with the teaching of my classes at school, I always hope to do more than just teach students to improve in English; I try to make English relatable and my lessons as enjoyable as possible, both to encourage students to engage with English and reading, as well as a general love of learning. Tutor sessions can focus on improving individual skills or knowledge of texts. I have frequently been complimented for my calm and approachable manner, both in an and out of lessons.
