I have a BA (hons) and MA (Cantab) in English at the University of Cambridge, and have an MA in Shakeseparean Studies from King's College London. I recently finished my PhD on contemporary theatre in London. I was a part-time university lecturer at Queen Mary, University of London, and have four year's experience teaching English and Drama at undergraduate level. I also tutor GCSE and A-Level English and Drama.

Tutoring Experience

I have tutored students for GCSE and A-Level English and Drama. I also have four year's experience working at Queen Mary, University of London giving lectures, seminars and one-on-one tuition in the Department of English and Drama. I am especially passionate about Early Modern drama, and Shakespeare in particular. I have taught courses on theatre history, London culture and experience, performing texts, and most recently performance and theatre in the UK since 1945. I have consistently scored above average for the quality of my teaching (4/5 or 5/5) in student feedback.

Tutoring Approach

I think that what is most important in tutoring is to understand the person you are working with. I like to get to know the student, in order to develop the most effective learning strategies for them. What works for one person often does not do for others! I try to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where the student is unafraid to express themselves. I want to make learning a positive experience which leads the student to want to know more. I really believe that saying that '[t]he purpose of education is not to fill a bucket but to light a fire.'
