Personal Description:

I am a passionate teacher with a sense of humour and a lot of empathy for learners who need my help. I have a cat and two adult children, one of whom is trying to get his band going, and one who has just finished her Literature degree. I love everything Brighton has to offer, especially the choir I sing in! I am reliable and will do my best for you.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught from Year 7 to Year 13 since 2008, with my latest teaching position being in a Sixth Form college, and my next being in KS3. I specialise in English Literature and English Language at A Level, but also have recent experience of teaching the combined Lang/Lit A Level. I have delivered two different GCSE English Language and English Literature specifications as well. My strength lies in quickly getting to grips with the exact assessment criteria of any Exam Board, and teaching you how to succeed, as well as (hopefully) helping you to develop a love for the subject so that you get more out of it than just a qualification. I have managed to encourage students towards studying at university even if they didn't start out with that intention or didn't believe they had the potential. I also believe that everyone is capable of more than they realise with the right attitude and a strategy that breaks down the key skills required - so I will help you succeed.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning well is really within everyone's reach. Tutoring is the ideal way to make this happen, because it is focused and personalised. I expect you to work at least as hard as I do, to take ownership of your learning and progress, because I firmly believe that it is only with that self-confidence that you will be able to tackle whatever your course throws at you. I encourage discussion and feedback - let me know what works for you so we can do more of that together.
