Personal Description:

With me as your tutor, not only do you receive a first-class education in a supportive environment, but you also get the benefit of my extensive experience in teaching and academia.

In December 2015, I completed my funded PhD on Samuel Beckett and Theodor W. Adorno at Royal Holloway, University of London. I completed my Masters study in Literature and Philosophy in September 2012, graduating with Distinction, and received a First Class Honours BA in English from Royal Holloway in 2010. Between my Undergraduate and Masters study I worked for a year as an Editorial Assistant in the Health Sciences division of Hachette UK. I am now working at the Foreign Office.

I also offer a proofreading service and online tuition.

Tutoring Experience:

I have extensive teaching experience, both to private students and in a university environment.

I have seven years of experience in tutoring pupils of all ages. My extensive teaching experience has proved very helpful in assisting A-Level students with the jump from school to university.

I was a Visiting Lecturer at Royal Holloway between September 2014 and June 2017 and taught on the courses 'Modernist Literature'; 'Reorienting the Novel'; 'Inventing the Novel'; 'Fundamental Questions in Philosophy'; and 'Special Author: Samuel Beckett'. I received excellent student feedback, with over 95% of my students agreeing that the seminars significantly furthered their knowledge. A number of the students last year identified seminars as the aspect of the course that helped them increase their knowledge and skills, with comments including 'engaging and approachable' and 'very helpful essay feedback'.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that each student requires entirely different strategies for the optimum level of learning. It is important for them to be taught in a positive and open environment, where they are encouraged not only to develop academically, but also to enjoy the experience of learning.

Whilst I recognise the need to cram for exams in our education system, I still believe that excellent grades can be achieved without compromising original thought and extra-curricular study.

I also offer proof-reading services if you do not require face to face tuition but only some help on a particular piece of work.
