About me

A bit about me:

I am currently in my 2nd year studying English Literature at the University of Exeter, and when I'm not in Exeter I live in London. I love studying English for the variety and freedom of study that it allows, and I love to help other students find more enjoyment in the subject as well as improve their essay writing style and exam technique.

A bit about me:

I am currently in my 2nd year studying English Literature at the University of Exeter, and when I'm not in Exeter I live in London. I love studying English for the variety and freedom of study that it allows, and I love to help other students find more enjoyment in the subject as well as improve their essay writing style and exam technique. In particular, I am experienced in tutoring the popular GCSE texts 'Macbeth', 'An Inspector Calls', 'A Christmas Carol', 'Romeo and Juliet', 'Jekyll and Hyde' and I have tutored a range of exam boards including AQA and Edexcel. I can help students nail their exam and revision technique to get the best grade possible, especially with problems such as ensuring students analyse quotes, get their heads around the main themes and ideas, and learn quotes for the exam.

In my spare time, I love the theatre, film, skiing, and hockey, and I'm loving uni life so far.

About my sessions

I always ensure the student has told me in advance what they would like to work on to ensure that I am prepared and have materials ready for the planned lesson.


My students often find it useful to go through the main themes and characters of their texts, making notes and selecting quotes to learn later on. I also ensure that we consider form, structure and context.

I always ensure the student has told me in advance what they would like to work on to ensure that I am prepared and have materials ready for the planned lesson.


My students often find it useful to go through the main themes and characters of their texts, making notes and selecting quotes to learn later on. I also ensure that we consider form, structure and context.


I then use past papers or practice questions to go through step by step with the student how they should approach, plan and write an essay. Encouraging them to type an answer in the lesson space means that I can work on their writing style as they go along, correcting mistakes and ensuring they are doing what they need to meet the mark scheme's requirements.


I also will usually set a small writing exercise for my students that we review within our lessons, showing clearly how they can improve from one week to the next. One-on-one tutoring means that students are more comfortable with asking questions and taking their time to understand concepts that could otherwise be skipped over in class.


My lessons are much more focused towards the exam than teachers will be in class, which is beneficial in familiarising students with exam technique ahead of their peers.
