Enfield Tutor

I have a BA in French Language and Literature from the University of Durham and a Masters (MA) in English Literature - for which I received a distinction - from the Open University. I work as a specialised notetaker and support worker for students with disabilities which I combine with tutoring in English Language and Literature.

I worked as a proofreader for British Telecom for a year and a half and was a live and pre-recorded subtitler for over six years for Independent Media Support, a company that provided the subtitles for Sky News, Films and Sports. Both jobs required excellent spelling, grammar, punctuation and attention to detail.

I am a keen sportswoman and play second-team tennis for my local club in Enfield and offer an energetic approach to everything that I do, including poring over GCSE literature texts!

Tutoring Experience

I was a volunteer assistant tutor for Key Stage 2 pupils for English Language up until December 2017 and have been tutoring GCSE English Language and Literature since September 2017 and A Level since September 2018.

I taught English for a year in 1991 in France when I was studying French at Durham University (having taught swimming to children from 4-14 at my local club in my late teens).

Tutoring Approach

The one-to-one nature of tutoring means having the time to build a relationship with a student, personalising their learning, and encouraging them to have the confidence to express themselves and make mistakes (which isn't always possible in a classroom environment). Regular feedback (and liaison with parents) is essential to ensure that a tutee is getting the most from their sessions. I am always looking for personal development opportunities to keep abreast of the latest teaching techniques and any changes to the national curriculum. I am passionate about English literature (which is why I chose to study for a Masters in English in 2015) and hope to convey this to each student during the learning process as well as help them achieve the grade they are aiming for.
