Personal Description:

I graduated with a BA in English Literature from the University of Cambridge in 2015. Before that, I received full marks in my English and Theatre Studies examinations, and an A in Spanish at A-level. Modernist poetry, literary theory, and the theatre of Early Modern England are just a few of the academic topics that are closest to my heart. I tutor English and Theatre Studies at all levels, Spanish to A-level, and Maths to GCSE. I also love helping my students prepare for the demands of university admissions tests and interviews. My work as a freelance theatre director also gives me first-hand experience of the ways in which a literary text can be brought alive through performance.

In addition to my academic interest in English literature and theatre, I chose to study a number of Seventeenth-Century Spanish texts for a portion of my degree and, recently, I lived in Seville to develop my fluency in Spanish. Before I left for Seville, I directed and performed a number of Twentieth-Century Spanish plays, including works by Alfonso Sastre and José Luis Alonso de Santos.

I also hold a Free Standing Mathematics Qualification (FSMQ), which introduces students to the elegance and power of advanced mathematics. The course examines equivalent material to the first modules of A-Level Maths.

Tutoring Experience:

In my final year of university, I taught Practical Criticism and Literary Theory to undergraduates. Supervising such a challenging course quickly taught me how to guide students in the development and synthesis of complex ideas, allowing me to support each individual within a classroom setting.

I have extensive experience working with children with special educational needs and can teach students with learning difficulties in a manner that is effective and exciting. The strategies that I have devised to minimise the impact of learning difficulties on the education of my students are beneficial even for those without special educational needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I produce bespoke lesson plans and resources to ensure that the unique needs of each student are met. I aim to create a challenging but inspiring environment by blending goal-focussed activities with wide-ranging and enriching discussions. This nurtures each student’s creativity and critical awareness while giving them the confidence to express their own unique perspectives on literature. I find it a complete joy to support a student as they develop their personal and invaluable ideas.
