Hi there !


I graduated with a first class honours degree in English Literature from the University of St Andrews last summer. Since I have completed a graduate diploma in law, and am now studying for the Bar of England and Wales.


At school I obtained straight As in my A Levels in English, History and French and have continued to pursue my passion for these subjects by reading widely. I have been tutoring now for five years and have lots of experience across age groups, exam syllabuses and modules. Over my time tutoring I have worked with children with special learning needs, like dyslexia and autism as well as with incredibly gifted children who have gone on to secure places at the best universities in the country. For the past three years I have taught at international summer schools teaching leadership programmes, critical thinking classes and communication skills. I have maintained contact with many of my tutees from over the years and can provide references on request.


At University I debated at a national and international level and achieved fourth place at the Scottish national championships in the final year of my degree. I encourage development of oral presentation skills alongside more traditional styles of academic presentation in order to boost students' natural confidence and to prepare them for life at University and in the real world.

About my sessions

I have always approached my lessons as more of a friend than a particularly strict tutor. I am great at building a rapport with my tutees and have stayed in contact with many of them over the years. I believe students learn best when they learn to really love and enjoy a subject, so my lessons focus on building a real appreciation of what makes even the most turgid of exam modules interesting as well as developing exam technique across the year to make sure students are as ready for exams as...

I have always approached my lessons as more of a friend than a particularly strict tutor. I am great at building a rapport with my tutees and have stayed in contact with many of them over the years. I believe students learn best when they learn to really love and enjoy a subject, so my lessons focus on building a real appreciation of what makes even the most turgid of exam modules interesting as well as developing exam technique across the year to make sure students are as ready for exams as they possibly can be.


I have a strong appreciation for the pressures on students particularly when they are trying to complete demanding and competitive academic programmes like A Levels and the International Baccleureate. Their time is at a premium, so I ensure that our lessons are always specifically targeted at their weaknesses and aimed at boosting their grade as much as possible. Many of the exam syllabuses taught today at all levels are best thought of as formulas that need to be learnt. Having taught for five years I have learnt the importance of keeping up to date with all syllabus changes; at this stage there is almost no course across the History and English A Level/i-Bac spectrum that I haven't worked with and when I do come across something new I always make the effort to learn the course content myself before I presume to try and teach it.
