I am an experienced tutor with over 15 years' teaching experience. I hold two degrees in Theology and Religious Studies and completed my undergraduate degree at Cambridge University. For my degrees, I studied a range of papers including history (Patristics, Medieval, Reformation, Early Modern & Modern, as well as Jewish history and contemporary issues), psychology, ethics, Greek and sociology. I've also studied with the Open University and achieved a distinction - subjects covered included English Literature, History (Victorian and French/Irish Early Modern History), Art History (Italian and British) and Philosophy. Additionally, I am a published author of articles and book reviews for UK journals. Currently, I am collaborating on an academic study course and am working on a book project.
I have tutored all age ranges from primary aged children to Master's level students to adults in English language and literature. Many of my students have come from backgrounds whereby English was not spoken in the home and occasionally I had students for whom English was a second language. For the latter students, I tailored lessons to most closely meet their needs with excellent rates of success. I have also taught French (basic/intermediate) to adult learners. I am also an experienced and highly competent proofreader of academic essays, dissertations and theses.
My approach to tutoring is aimed at the individual and helping him/her to achieve the very best of which he/she is capable . I believe in instilling confidence in students and in taking the time to work through concepts in order to aid understanding. I am passionate about education as a means of helping individuals flourish, am an excellent and patient listener and approach teaching in a methodical and thoroughgoing way.
