Personal Description:

Having graduated in English Language and Literature from Oxford University I subsequently studied law with the College of Law, coming third in my year on the Common Professional Exam and gaining a distinction in the Legal Practice Course. I qualified and worked as a city solicitor before training as a teacher.

I am the author of a highly respected study and revision guide for GCSE English Literature and the co-author of another. Currently I am writing a study guide for A Level English Literature.

I home tutor my own children, the eldest of whom this summer sat three GCSE's at the age of l2, achieving A*'s. I also have an excellent track record as a tutor going back over more than a decade, helping students to achieve high grades in public exams, including entrance exams, and therefore to attend the school or university of their choice.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a Master's degree in Education from Durham University and a BA/MA in English Language and Literature from Oxford University. I have worked in both private and state schools in England, France and Germany teaching up to A Level. This includes teaching English as foreign language in two French secondary schools using French as the language of instruction. I am a senior examiner for English Literature GCSE and the International GCSE; and have also examined English Language GCSE, English Literature A Level and the International O Level, being consistently assessed as an A-grade examiner. I examine Law for International A Level.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the key to effective tuition is to tailor the teaching to the pupil and not the other way around. I firrmly believe that all pupils can succeed given the appropriate level of motivation and instruction. Prior to the first lesson I would ask tutees to provide examples of their current work and to give me an idea of their aims, such as a minimum target grade in a forthcoming exam or a particular area for improvement. I would then provide a course of tuition designed to meet the individual's needs using his or her interests to stimulate further development.
