Personal Description:

I am a freelance writer, specialising in travel. Everything about the world interests me, and I love going off on adventures in unusual countries as they provide so much inspiration for me to write. In London, this translates into writing content for travel brochures and websites. When abroad, my motto is to always say yes, try as much of the local culture as possible, and if there is a mountain to be climbed or the chance of a fishing trip then I am the first in line!

Aside from travel, I live in Mile End and enjoy watching sport (I used to play rugby but dislocating my shoulder a year ago put me off!) and using my flat as a canvas for my amateurish art.

Tutoring Experience:

Since the age of 15, I began teaching sailing as an Assistant Dinghy Instructor during my summer holidays in Norfolk. At 18, I qualified as a full RYA Dinghy Instructor and for several years spent the whole summer working full time for a Norfolk leisure centre. Here, I would run sailing courses or take people out on private lessons, mainly teaching kids aged 8-12 but also teaching adults, teenagers and much younger kids too.

In Norfolk I have also volunteered to teach sailing at the Brancaster Staithe Sail Training Week each year - here I am usually the Lead Instructor for Stage 3, and returning each year has kept me in touch with the love of teaching.

In 2009 on my Gap Year, I worked for Thomas' Fulham, a top London prep school. As the gap year assistant, I helped reception and Year 3 with one-to-one reading; I coached and refereed rugby matches for Year 3 and I also helped out with the maths, drama and art departments.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it's important to teach in a rounded, varied way. Some children learn very differently to others, and it is important to identify early on which teaching methods suit the child best. For example, I personally learn best by doing; others by being shown or being told, and some by a mixture.

At the core of everything, I think learning should be a fun process. Exams and tests are clearly important, but the thirst for learning should last beyond GCSEs and A Levels, and I think people are much better at picking things up and maintaining enthusiasm for them if the learning process is not a chore.
