My background is very international as I grew up all over the world but settled in the UK when I was 12. I was sent to a boarding school in Edinburgh and completed my A-levels at Oxford High School. I'm passionate about supporting young people in their growth and helping them to feel confident. I'm also musical and perform as a singer around Norwich.
I have been tutoring full-time for the last five years working with students from abroad and the UK, supporting them in applications to private schools in the UK. My success rate has been 85% first choice schools with many achieving the highest marks in essay writing and comprehension for English at the UK's top schools. I also prepared students for the Philosophy entrance exam and others at OCR, AQA at A-level.
My approach is friendly but firm. As the schools are competitive, the demands on the job are high, but students generally enjoy the lessons - as do I! I use a variety of imaginative sources from online, film and radio and explore the student's ideas fully when generating arguments for essays. These methods are invaluable to instilling confidence and seeing the fun, exciting side of learning.
