Alongside teaching, I am completing a young adult fiction novel. I attended Hillcrest Grammar School, Marple Sixth Form College and Salford University. I am a recent graduate; therefore, I'm familiar with how the education system functions, how to revise and prep efficiently to achieve the best grades.
In 2016, I was awarded The Vice Chancellor's Scholarship to complete a Master's Degree in Creative Writing. I passed with a Merit.
In 2015, I completed a three year Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature & Creative Writing. Result: First-Class.

I adore getting to know my students' quirks and eccentricities! I try my best to make lessons both fun and engaging.
I have several years experience teaching English Literature and English Language privately in the UK.
I have also taught overseas. I taught English in Wanagiri in Bali proving my adaptability, immersing myself in all facets of Balinese culture while also living with a family from the local village.
My approach to tutoring is friendly, personable, and professional. Tuition is aimed at all ages including Primary School, High School, College, and beyond. One-to-one tuition is tailored to my student who may choose to focus on the following:
- Creative Writing
- Close reading essays
- Analysing prose texts
- Analysing poetry
- Essay structuring, spelling, and grammar
- Preparing Literature presentations
- Revising for exams
- Personal assignments or home-work
I'm flexible with teaching locations: either a quiet room in your house; my office space; or in a public library. Sessions are 1 hour at a rate of £30. (Cash and bank transfers are accepted. No cheques).
*** Unfortunately, I am not able to write essays for you - this would be fraud! However, I can help proof read and offer advice on ways to improve your essay ***

I would highly recomend Gabriella as an at home tutor
After many messages back and forth (which was a total waste of my valuable time and could have been spent preparing for lessons), I explained honestly and kindly that although April is my busiest month, I was happy to accommodate you anytime before 1:30pm. Additionally, I said there was no pressure if you did not want to continue with me as a tutor.
Then, miraculously, you agreed to the times I suggested in the first instance. However, by this point, I was so stressed out with your ludicrous demands, I calmly said:
“The organisation of these lessons has been stressful, which leads me to believe the teaching process will not be pleasant either, and in fact, I would prefer not to teach your child.”
You replied with a disingenuous and insulting message, insinuating that I was a tutor who took advantage of parents. You go on to say that the reason I’d changed my mind was because I was ‘scared off’ by your ‘vigilant’ parenting. I don’t think leaving your 7 year-old with a stranger is very vigilant, do you?
To be completely honest, I am unbelievably relieved that I never have to meet these authoritarian parents.
Lastly, to those good-natured parents reading this searching for an honest, reliable, and responsible tutor for their son or daughter, I can provide all messaging between Kushi’s family and I as evidence to back-up my truthful statement. I never met this family in person, so they haven’t a clue about my teaching competency, but feel free to peruse over my other brilliant 5 star reviews which are imbued with gratitude, respect, and most importantly honesty.
Thanks for reading.
