Putney Tutor

After graduating from Oxford University in 2011 with a Distinction in a Masters in eighteenth-century literature, I spent three years working part-time as a teacher at a small independent sixth form college in St. Albans. During this period I was also working as an award-winning freelance journalist specialising in articles on books and theatre. Currently I am researching actresses and their writing in eighteenth-century Britain for a doctoral thesis at King’s College London.

Tutoring Experience

I have taught OCR English Literature at AS and A2, AQA English Language at AS and A2 and AQA English Language and Literature AS and A2. I have always taught in small groups – no more than three students at a time and often one-on-one. I have also frequently conducted mock university interviews both on a voluntary basis and for the company Oxbridge Applications.

Tutoring Approach

I enjoy teaching students to deepen their responses to texts while still adhering to the requirements of examination Assessment Objectives. I focus on how to construct cogent, analytical and imaginative arguments. My students have routinely exceeded expectations.
