Personal Description:

'Outstanding' Deputy Head of English (QTS) and GCSE AQA Examiner; BA/MA/PGCE Qualified.

A warm, friendly and experienced GCSE Examiner and Teacher of English, living in Finsbury Park.
Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), graded Outstanding.

Having graduated with a BA (Hons) in Classical Literature from The University of Manchester, I subsequently trained at Masters level at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, a worldwide leading drama school, through which I developed an appreciation for creativity in learning.

From there I gained a place on the competitive Teach First Leadership Development Programme, and now teach English and Drama in an inner-London secondary school.
As an examiner for AQA, I have been specifically trained according to the new GCSE syllabus (from 2016) and have an excellent working knowledge of the skills needed for pupils to achieve success.

My philosophy for learning is simple: that anybody, no matter their background, should have the opportunity to succeed. I work using open, engaging activities and rigorous examination preparation, to both bring the enjoyment out of a subject, and to readily prepare for those vital examinations.

Tutoring Experience:

-Fully trained GCSE examiner for AQA exam-board
-Deputy-head of English Department
- Teach First ambassador
- Post-16 Apprenticeship Coach
- Speech & Drama Coach

My most recent GCSE English tutee was offered a place by both the highly competitive Kings and Westminster 6th Forms.

Tutoring Approach:

Open
Enthusiastic
Focussed
Precise
