Personal Description:

I am highly academic and rather Dyspraxic. I have had to find my own very unique ways to achieve academically, with the help of many brilliant people. In turn, I work with my students and tutees to help them to grow in confidence and to meet high expectations by appreciating their own unique skills and abilities as learners. Most importantly, however, I want everyone I teach or tutor to develop a love of learning. Tutorials should never be dull.

Partly due to my personal academic and SEN background, I particularly specialise in working empathetically with high achieving and SEN pupils.

Tutoring Experience:

While studying for a PhD, I worked with adults studying for diplomas (along with some casual learners) on a ministry training course, both in support and teaching roles. I also taught some university-style lessons and seminars to Year 10 students from local secondary skills as part of my university's "widening participation" programme, and have continued to develop popular public education projects in Exeter over the past six years.

Having submitted my dissertation just over a year ago, it had become clear to me that my real enthusiasm lay with teaching and tutoring others and helping them to enjoy their study and to progress as learners. This work has included Religious Studies tuition and one-to-one EFL tuition for PhD students; proofreading, copy editing and transcription; teaching EFL on summer programmes to students from all over the world and at all levels of English proficiency; developing and teaching accelerated and university-style courses for gifted students at schools with low university uptake; covering lessons in secondary schools, and; especially, providing learning support and one-to-one tuition at schools which specifically support pupils with special educational needs and social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH).

I am currently working full time in a therapeutic SEMH school, while tutoring at evenings, weekends, and during school holidays.

Tutoring Approach:

I bring both strong academic skills and a personable manner to my tutorials, meaning that they are intellectually rigorous as well as fun. I am a creative tutor, with a good sense of humour, who challenges tutees to reach high educational standards through enjoyable, fun and engaging activities, which are personally tailored towards harnessing their own unique strengths and abilities.
