Personal Description:

I am a part-time PhD student within the Department of English and Related Literature at the University of York. I hold an MA in Modern Literature and Culture, also from the University of York, and took my undergraduate degree at Oxford University. I gained a TESOL qualification in late 2007 and subsequently taught English as a second language for six months in Italy, and two months in Oxford, prior to coming to York.

Tutoring Experience:

In Italy I taught students of all abilities and who varied in age from their late teens to retirement age. Most of the lessons were one-to-one and I learned to tailor my approach to the individual needs of my students, and would often use authentic materials such as magazine articles and news recordings. At Oxford I taught larger, multi-national groups and followed a stricter curriculum laid down by the school, although I did have the opportunity to give weekly ‘special interest’ lessons on English poetry to interested students.

Tutoring Approach:

My role is to help you meet your needs, whether that is sitting exams for GCSE and A-Level students or improving conversational English for non-native speakers. I’ll work with you to determine exactly what those needs are and tailor my tutoring accordingly. At the same time, as a PhD student, I am extremely enthusiastic about literature and love talking about books. I bring that enthusiasm to my teaching and hope to encourage a love of reading amongst all my students.
