Personal Description:

I am currently completing a Master's in Literature at Oxford University, having recently completed my undergraduate studies, also in Literature, at Cambridge University. I still thoroughly enjoy learning and the rigorous demands of studying at postgraduate level, gaining many invaluable skills I aim to pass on to my students. Originally from New Zealand, I naturally like sheep and anything to do with Hobbits.

Tutoring Experience:

I have much experience tutoring individuals of all ages and abilities, particularly those students sitting GCSE and A-Level subjects in preparation for exams.

I also have experience running tutorials and workshops for both large and small groups, andI recently spent three weeks touring across the UK with the Cambridge Footlights running comedy and ‘Oxbridge Entrance’ workshops for secondary school students. I spent a month in Japan in 2011 teaching English to school and university students, which included integrating Shakespearean textual analysis for more fluent speakers. In addition, I ran drama workshops, incorporating both theory and practical elements of drama. I also spent seven weeks in India last year, running similar English tutorials and drama workshops for children aged five to sixteen.

Tutoring Approach:

I am committed to each individual student's needs and design lessons to fill in gaps or build on pre-existing skill-sets. I pride myself in my essay writing ability and can help improve a student's capacity to structure a persuasive argument fluently and expressively, using lateral and original thinking, regardless of subject matter. I can also help to improve a student's textual and contextual analysis both through in-depth discussion.
