About me

Hi! I'm an English language teacher with a keen interest in theatre, reading, dancing and travelling. While I was at university I studied English and Related Literature and loved the opportunity it gave me to intertwine my interests in history, theatre and psychology.

Hi! I'm an English language teacher with a keen interest in theatre, reading, dancing and travelling. While I was at university I studied English and Related Literature and loved the opportunity it gave me to intertwine my interests in history, theatre and psychology. My final dissertation was focused on the connections between Salvadore Dali's painting The Metamorphosis of Narcissus, Freud's theory of narcissism and the original Ovidian myth of Narcissus. I was also involved in event management as Chair of the Literature society, wrote articles for student papers and was a private tutor for various students in the York area.


Since leaving University I was a language teacher for two years in Italy and then Greece, teaching English to toddlers, primary school children, teenagers and adults, and have loved every moment. I am currently working in a special needs school with students on the autistic spectrum, with diwb syndrome and cerebral palsy. Over the years I have also taught one to one sessions for primary school maths and English, GCSE English and A Level English literature, language and psychology.

About my sessions

Learning should be fun, no stress. Every student works at a different level and pace, and my role as a teacher is to adapt for that. While being organised, I am always happy to be flexible for what the student wants to focus on and for how they want to learn. Whether that's through games, music, moving around or focused exercises. I'll aim at first to get to know a student's interests, needs and learning style, and then try to be creative and adapt to them from there.

Josh has been fantastic with my son. He has given excellent feedback and managed to engage my reluctant son in his English Language GCSE re-sit. Thanks!
