Personal Description:

Besides tutoring, I'm also a freelance writer of tech, finance, design and marketing content, and an independent researcher in Gothic Studies, Game Studies and Death Studies.

Tutoring Experience:

I've been tutoring informally since my teens: my work experience was in a primary school and I spent several years in an online writing collective, developing my craft in dialogue with others. After a few more voluntary experiences at a writers' workshop in university and a community resource centre between degrees, I trained and qualified as a Further Education teacher in 2010.

Since then I've worked in secondary schools and FE colleges across England, as a classroom teacher and a one-to-one tutor, with one of London's most prestigious agencies. I've supported students at every level from primary to postgraduate, seen students jump four GCSE grades after two weeks of tuition, and been a second-language tutor to students who couldn't speak a word of English when they met me.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is a kind of bespoke Socratic. I see teaching and learning as a dialogue, and engage each student as a distinct individual. The first appointment is always a self-assessment session in which the student talks about their experiences and needs as they perceive them, and I build up a bespoke programme of learning.
