Personal Description:

I'm currently in the final year of my doctorate in English Literature at the University of Oxford. The subject of my thesis is the cognitive value of literature, and it's a great pleasure working at the intersection of literature and philosophy. I've really enjoyed coming back to academia after spending several years living and working as an Arts and Culture reporter in Lebanon. I'm passionate about reading and writing, and spend most of my spare time doing one or the other. I also love going for long walks, yoga, learning Arabic, and travelling.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a private tutor since graduating from the University of Cambridge in 2009. I have also designed and taught courses in creative writing and French.

Tutoring Approach:

I love the dynamic of tutoring, which is usually with one student, and occasionally with two or three. I find that, especially with subjects such as literature or philosophy, tutees benefit enormously from a deep and thorough engagement with their thought and their writing. It's very important that the tutee build independent ability; that is the objective that always underlies my approach.
