Personal Description:

I am a graduate of English Literature from Oxford University with First Class Honours, now studying for an MA in the History of Art at The Courtauld Institute. I am also currently conducting research into African tribal art for a gallery in Glasgow, continuing a project I began before my recent move to London. I am friendly, passionate, and always eager to engage people on the subject of literature.

Tutoring Experience:

I have now been tutoring for two years, with consistently good results for students undertaking Scottish examinations. I have familiarised myself with the requirements at GCSE, and I have taught at A-Level.

My three years’ experience of the Oxford system has made me very familiar with the process and with the potential benefits of tutorials. I would be very happy to provide training for anyone wishing to study English at a university which requires an interview or entrance exam.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that an understanding of literature is an asset which enhances our enjoyment of life, as well as providing us with the critical tools required to secure good employment. I will help to develop my tutees' ability to comprehend, analyse, and appreciate the texts on their syllabus, but I also wish to encourage wider and closer reading. This will help the student to develop the familiarity with literature required to compose the very highest class of essay.
