Personal Description:

Hello! I'm a recent PhD graduate whose interdisciplinary work covers English, history, media studies and psychology, and I've just moved to Sheffield. I love teaching, I get a real kick out of helping people understand and explore ideas, histories and media for themselves, and I have over a decade's tutoring experience. I'm understanding and sympathetic towards both the pressure high achievers put on themselves and those the school system places on the less academically inclined, and it's really important to me to understand where my students are coming from and tailor my approach accordingly.

Tutoring Experience:

I've been teaching for over a decade, in colleges, universities and on a one-to-one agency basis, for students ranging from 5 to 55. I've taught GCSE and A-levels in classes and individually, undergraduates at UCL and elsewhere, and adult learners in a number of settings and contexts, as well as university-based summer schools and a fair few workshops in English, history and drama.

Tutoring Approach:

I care an awful lot about the things I teach, but i'm also pretty clear that my pupils don't necessarily share my passions, and that it's on me to find ways of making learning fun, interesting, and relevant. Usually I manage it, whether through an innovative approach to subject matter and example or finding new ways of exploring texts, events and media. I've specialised in students with complex needs - people with experience of depression, eating disorders, histories of trauma or other mental health issues - and i'm used to being flexible, responsive and supportive, whether these things are a factor or not.
