About me

I am a recent graduate of Russian and English, and I am currently studying for a Masters in Security and Terrorism. I lived in Moscow for two years, where I taught English. I especially English Literature because I find that there is great power in language and narrative. I will help students improve by fostering an intrigue in the subjects I teach, relating each lesson to the students' own interests.

About my sessions

We would discuss goals and desired outcomes in an initial meeting. I will also assess the student's strengths, weaknesses and learning style in the first 2 lessons. My general approach is to build my lesson plans from the skills and questions from the exam spec, though this can be adapted to suit the learner and purpose of the lessons.

I try to promote engagement and confidence in the subject as much as I can. I achieve this through tailoring the lesson content to the learner's interests, using visual aids and highlighting strengths to develop a sense of mastery.


I am an empathetic person and can understand students' difficulties and frustration with a subject. I have experience working with students with SEN and will make appropriate adjustments in my teaching. As part of my MA, I designed a program to reengage students that are excluded from mainstream education. This has benefited my teaching enormously and I sometimes use the strategies from the lessons in my tutoring.
