Personal Description:

I am a first class Warwick University graduate and a qualified English teacher, having completed my PGCE at Pembroke College, Cambridge, in 2012. Consistently rated as an outstanding classroom practitioner at my previous school, I am rigorous and committed when it comes to student progress.

Needless to say, I am passionate about literature and theatre, and have just completed an MA in Scriptwriting at UEA with a Distinction. I now work at Cambridge Arts Theatre as Marketing and Education Officer.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught for three years at two outstanding secondary schools in Cambridge. During this time I was promoted to third in department and given responsibility for stretching Gifted and Talented students. I was also the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities representative for the English department. I have privately tutored since becoming a qualified teacher in 2012.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that all good teaching stems from positive, genuine relationship between tutor and tutee and pride myself on innovative, bespoke teaching approaches. I am creative, flexible and seek to know a student well in order that I can tailor my resources and technique to suit them.

I feel strongly that excellent education is about holistic nurturing - it is not simply a case of teaching exam technique. I encourage students to engage deeply and intuitively with texts, considering how they reflect what is happening in the world around them and probing them to consider how they feel about this as young adults. In turn, this often elicits excellent results.

**Please note - If you are seeking tuition for your child but the hourly tuition price I suggest is too high relative to your income, please do get in touch anyway - it may be that we can come to an arrangement.
