Personal Description:

I am a recent graduate from Cambridge University, living in London. At Cambridge, I received the Thomas Gray Scholarship for English, the Hugo de Balsham Prize for Academic Excellence, and the Friends of Peterhouse prize from my college, Peterhouse, as well as two University prizes: the Derek Brewer prize for Medieval Literature, and the T.R. Henn Prize for Original Composition. I have a broad range of interests in English literature - in my final year I specialised in a variety of subjects, including photography and modernist short fiction, Caribbean literature, and Chaucer. I am also a keen linguist, and continued to improve my Ancient Greek language skills while at University by taking extra-curricular supervisions in this subject. My approach to academic learning is characterised by a serious commitment to creativity and the arts: I played in orchestras (NCO and LSSO) throughout primary school and secondary school, and passed my ABRSM flute diploma in 2012.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience tutoring for 11+ exams and secondary school homework help. I also have experience volunteering with vulnerable children and children with learning difficulties, having volunteered for a year with Student Community Action while at University.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the best way to help a person to learn is to encourage their own interests and excitement in the subject. When tutoring, I do my best to pass on my enthusiasm for literature and language to my students, sometimes using more unconventional methods such as asking a child to express their ideas through drawing pictures. I have developed what I have found to be a very effective set of exam techniques, and am able to provide clear and practical guidance in this area.
