Personal Description:

I am an experienced teacher of English language and literature with a First Class Honours degree, and I live near Hertford. I work with school and college students at GCSE and A level, and with adults aiming to improve their English.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught in a number of further education colleges in London and Hertfordshire, and at the University of East London. I am currently working at Hertford Regional College, teaching the history module of the Access to Higher Education course. I also work privately with a number of students, providing tutorial support for GCSE and A level English.

Tutoring Approach:

One of my aims is to help students improve their writing ability by understanding how good writing is structured, so that they may avoid the grammatical and stylistic faults which so often hold exam grades down. This includes encouraging and helping students to read attentively and perceptively, and to broaden their vocabulary and powers of expression.
In literature I specialise in poetry, a difficult area of the curriculum for many. I studied for my degree as a mature student, having previously worked as a bookbinder and then in community arts, and so am particularly aware of the concerns of adults returning to education.
