I have a degree in English Literature and History. I thoroughly enjoy working with young people and have visited schools all over the world to gain an insight into different approaches within schools. After completing the Teach First Graduate scheme I decided I wanted a career in teaching and have never looked back.
I am currently Head of English at a high performing school in North West London and have been teaching for 9 years. Our results were the highest in the Hillingdon Borough in 2017. I am also an AQA examiner and therefore have a real understanding of what the examiners are looking for!
My approach is firstly to gain an understanding of where the student is at and then work together to develop strategies that are tailored to the student. I strongly believe in the importance of modelling how to write and giving lots of appropriate examples so students can actually see what they are working towards.
