I am a long-time teacher, lecturer, examiner and professional tutor with a patient, confidence-building approach; I have taught 2500+ hours to hundreds of students.


I passed my PhD in English at the University of Leicester. I also hold a Masters with Distinction from Oxford Brookes University and a First Class undergraduate degree from Loughborough University. I have a CELTA teaching qualification and a diploma for teaching in higher education.


At home, I live in Oxfordshire with my wife Kate and two stepsons. I enjoy music festivals, running and long walks with our dog Maple.


I have successfully taught at over ten schools, many private students and at university level. This has ranged from general/casual learning to exam and entrance preparation at all levels.


I also hold qualifications in educational psychology and in supporting adult dyslexia.

About my sessions

My approach is friendly, gentle and supportive but extremely professional.


At the heart of my tutoring is how important it is that a student believes in their own ability to learn and to progress.


If there is one word I hear my students kindly use to describe my qualities it would be 'patience'. Yet I never feel like my patience is tested - I love the challenge of finding new, innovative ways to help them understand their subject.
