Personal Description:

I am a published novelist, with a First Class Degree in English Literature from UCL, and an MPhil in American Literature from Cambridge University. I specialise in tutoring English from 11+ up to degree level, and History at GCSE and A-Level.

I have had two novels published by Canelo: False Prophet in 2016 and Never Forget in 2017. Both are American-style thrillers.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring for four years, and have worked with a number of prestigious tutoring agencies. Most of my work has been with school-aged students, though I have also worked with university students.

Aside from English and History tuition, I also offer essay writing guidance in general. Since many essay writing skills are transferable between subjects, I have been able to help students studying subjects as varied as Economics, Psychology, and Philosophy. I have worked with a number of university students to hone and sharpen their essays and dissertations.

Tutoring Approach:

I tend to tailor my approach to the student in question, since every student has different needs. If I am working with a student who wants to boost their grade just before an exam, for instance, I might focus on decoding mark-schemes and figuring out tactics to satisfy assessment objectives. On the other hand, if I am working with a student on a long-term basis, my focus might be on fostering a passion and interest in the subject, and encouraging lateral thinking.
