Personal Description:

I am an author and journalist who has written books on cultural history, history of fashion and essays on cultural history through media. I write obituaries and articles for national newspapers and magazines here and in the USA. I also studied Film at University. I have done courses in research, through the London School of Business, worked on financial PR campaigns and prepared speeches, brochures and editorial for various companies. I have worked in theatre and I am currently at work on a screenplay and a non-fiction book.

Tutoring Experience:

My exam results this summer were outstanding; among those students I tutored, several improved from E grade to high B or A grade. This included some who had never experienced exam success ever. Also, with he change in pass mark grade boundaries, all got through with ease. Moreover, where some school departments were confused about exam strategy and wrongly advised students on poetry papers and coursework, my students succeeded without anxiety. I taught many students essay technique, which gave them a distinct advantage for their exams and further ahead at university. I was able to provide appropriate critical material and secondary source material and help with assessment objectives overall.
I have taught children and adults and lectured at museums both here and abroad. I have experience teaching children and adults with dyslexia. I also teach Drama for LAMDA board examinations. I am enjoying teaching English, Theatre Studies, Media and Fashion History. I like to tailor my teaching to the needs and interests of the student, encouraging reading around the subject. I can also help with strategies for learning for exams and I have experience in teaching for Common Entrance, towards scholarship exams and helping with coursework in English and other subjects.

I have enjoyed considerable success helping students applying to universities, both here and abroad with applications, CVs and admittance essays. Rates supplied upon request. I also teach for IELTS and LNAT exams on a regular basis.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is positive, encouraging and practical. I have two grown children, who have very different learning styles, so I think it is important to take this into consideration when devising lesson plans and marking work.

I am able to guide students through writing and producing their dissertations and will take on proofreading and editing work. I am prompt, accurate and understand the criteria and requirements of different educational establishments. The earlier the student contacts me the better for this service. Rates for this vary, according to the level editing and feedback required, but please do contact me and we can negotiate what is needed and the best approach for you…
