Personal Description:

I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and love of reading literature –including drama, theatre, and film studies--and English language and culture. I have experience in teaching A level students from a range of backgrounds and cultures. I am qualified with an MA and PhD in English literature and also have wide experience of teaching English language, IELTS, and academic study skills. Nourishing all aspects of learning potential, my approach is to instill enthusiasm for the subject, together with improving skills and confidence in the student’s approach to learning, and writing.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught for over 20 years at college and universities in the UK and overseas. I have tutored individual students and small groups from age 15 to adult learners, from GCSE’s to A levels and undergraduate levels including IELTS, English conversation, and cultural studies: also helping non-native English speakers and professional students with essay assignments, job and university application forms.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning and developing self-expression should be enjoyable and enriching experiences. My approach is to bring out the talents and abilities of each student, and to help them overcome any obstacles to gaining successful grades through developing skills and building confidence. I take a stress-free step by step detailed approach to course material, and give regular feedback on progress. I am here to help!
Focus--fun--fast progress--professional feedback--fantastic results!
