About me

As a tutor, I encourage students to bring something individual and fresh to topics, tailoring tutoring to each student’s personal interests.  Whilst tutoring English, for example, I prompt pupils to explore their texts in alternative media, including film, theatre, tv and radio in order to explore how others have interpreted literature over time.  In my own experience, knowledge of a subject beyond the curriculum firstly enables students to have more confidence in their exams and secondly allows education to become an interest, rather than a chore. Enthusiastic, diligent and meticulous, I am eager to help students attain top marks whilst enjoying their education.

Having worked as a Young Leader in the Girl Guiding UK organisation for 7 years and having undertaken several weeks of work experience at a variety of schools, I am aware of how to encourage young people to follow their own interests to enrich their understanding of topics.  My personal experience in the Oxbridge application system also enables me to guide students through the complex procedure themselves, whilst providing support to produce engaging personal statements for any university application.

I studied AQA English and history GCSE and A-level and OCR Latin and Greek GCSE and A-level, achieving A* for all my GCSE and A-level qualifications.  My specialist period for history is the 20th century, particularly totalitarian regimes, pre-WWII USA and the Cold War, but I am also able to teach Renaissance Europe.

I am generally available from 3pm until 9pm on weekdays, and all day most weekends. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I look forward to working with you!

Kandice (Student) June 15 2016

Laura is a fantastic tutor. After her amazing help with my A-Level in English literature, she helped me push my grade up from a B in AS to an A* in A2. Laura's teaching methods are effective, engaging and informative. Through her dedication to helping me improve in English, I was able to achieve and exceed my goal.

I always enjoy Laura's lessons! Every week we go through areas which I struggle with or lack confidence in, and I leave the lessons feeling much more confident and happy! I honestly believe this exam prep will help me succeed with my English A2 exam.
