Personal Description:

I am a long-time teacher, lecturer, examiner and professional tutor with a patient and supportive approach; I have taught 2500+ hours to over 450 students.

I passed my PhD in English at the University of Leicester. I also hold a Masters with Distinction from Oxford Brookes University and a First Class undergraduate degree from Loughborough University. I have a CELTA teaching qualification and a diploma for teaching in higher education.

At home, I live in Oxfordshire with my wife Kate and two stepsons. I enjoy music festivals, running and long walks with our dog Maple.

Tutoring Experience:

I have successfully taught at over ten schools, many private students and at university level. This has ranged from general/casual learning to exam and entrance preparation at all levels.

I also hold qualifications in educational psychology and in supporting adult dyslexia.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is friendly, gentle and supportive but extremely professional.

At the heart of my tutoring is how important it is that a student believes in their own ability to learn and to progress. If there is one word I hear my students kindly use to describe my qualities it would be 'patience'. Yet I never feel like my patience is tested - I love the challenge of finding new, innovative ways to help them understand their subject.
