I have an M. Phil in English from the University of Glasgow and I am continuing my research on Shakespeare. Publications include 'India and the Golden Age in A Midsummer Night's Dream', in Shakespeare Survey 65 (Cambridge, 2012), and The Merchant of Venice, III.II.99, in Notes and Queries Vol. 61 No. 2 (Oxford 2014).
I have been a tutor since the 1990s, and have tutored at all levels, from Primary School to SQA National 5, ESOL and Higher Grade to University level and international students for the IELTS exams.
