Personal Description:

I'm a highly qualified, originally Irish, tutor who specialises in English language and literature. Alongside my tutoring work, I've worked for ten years within the world of communication as a journalist, writer, editor and curator and am very well versed in the world of language! Writing English is at the core of all my work and I'm very eager and enthusiastic in sharing this love for language with students.

Tutoring Experience:

I've taught English language and literature (including creative writing and cinema studies) up to third level. I've also extensively taught English as a foreign language throughout the UK, Ireland and Austria and have been tutoring students in London at GCSE and A Level for the past five years.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is very student-orientated and I'm especially skilled in getting good students to become even better (i.e A* level or equivalent). My methods with different pupils are altered in tandem with each particular student. For some jobs, I have to work in a very concentrated and short-term manner towards an impending exam; in other situations, I have been asked to help a pupil regain confidence in a subject in which they are struggling at school.

However, whatever the circumstance, there are some central tenets of my tutoring which do not change. On the one hand, I like to keep my students very goal-oriented, setting clear targets and working towards them in a direct and rewarding fashion. However, I also try to teach my pupils skills which will stand them in good stead for their academic future - revision techniques, note-making and most importantly an interest in the subject, the best motivational tool there is.
