Personal Description:

I have a degree in English Literature from the University of Cambridge, and a Doctorate in Literature and History from the University of Oxford. I am married with three children, all of whom are still at home. I am a friendly, approachable person and I understand that all students have different strengths and weaknesses. I enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities and helping them to achieve their full potential.

Tutoring Experience:

I am an enthusiastic, committed and caring tutor. I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy which is dedicated to enhancing and supporting the student learning experience. As a marker for one of the main exam boards, I have a good understanding of how to achieve the highest marks in English Literature examinations. In the last academic year one of my 'A' Level students went from a 'D' at AS to an A* at A2, and another lifted her mark from an 'E' to a 'B'.
I have also taught first and second year undergraduates at the University of Oxford, and throughout my studies I helped students with essay writing and study skills.

Tutoring Approach:

I am highly sensitive to the differing needs of each individual, and I tailor lessons to the pace and ability of each student. My focus is on nurturing each student's strengths to enable them to develop the ability to write confidently without losing their individuality. I encourage students to ask questions to build their confidence whilst at the same time developing their analytical and essay writing skills. These are skills which serve students well in all subjects and are essential to academic success.
