Ladbroke Grove Tutor

I have worked with pupils from the age of two to twenty-two and love to support students in finding their learning style. My specialist subjects are English and Maths, including the 7+, 11+ and Common Entrance exams, I also teach both English and Drama to A Level standard and provide Voice and Elocution lessons. I also have experience in tutoring students with dyslexia.

Tutoring Experience

I have been tutoring for over 5 years. Alongside my tutoring, I am currently teaching Music and Drama in schools and I run workshops with Sixth Formers on ways of analysing texts practically.

A Level English Literature (AQA) – worked with Oliver (17) helping with coursework on The Great Gatsby and the poetry of Keats and Larkin. Oliver achieved an A grade.

Tutoring Approach

I will tailor whatever I teach to my pupil's needs. I am very easy to get along with and very open to how you think you or your child will best learn. If you have any questions at all or specific enquiries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
