About me

Here’s all you need to know:


·      The best thing about studying English at university was the independence. Apart from a few compulsory books, the ‘reading-world’ was our oyster. Medieval English, at first terrifying, became an absolute favourite.


·      Whilst at university, I was involved with poetry and writing groups. I also played squash and table-tennis, spending most of my free time trying to perfect my poker face at my college’s boardgames society.


·      Before that, I took a gap year where I worked as an Au-Pair in France, tutoring both in French and English.


·      I’ve had some poems published whilst at Cambridge and continue to write in my free time, so happy to give some mentorship in creative writing !


·      The first poem I learnt by heart was If by Rudyard Kipling. My favourite line is “If you can dream—and not make dreams your master.”


·      My tutoring style is relaxed, patient, and enthusiastic. It’s not just about getting the best grade; it’s about the student developing a life-long relationship with reading.

About my sessions

The most important lesson I’ve learned is that everyone has a different way of learning and a different pace.


Here’s what you can expect:


·      A tailored approach. I will structure our time around your personal requirements, whether that’s focusing on content or exam technique.


·      A variety of resources. Do you learn better with pictures? Then, we will use mind-maps, diagrams, and colour coding. Are you an auditory learner? Great, then we can read questions aloud and formulate our answers in conversation. If you don’t know, here’s where you can find out: http://www.educationplanner.org/students/self-assessments/learning-styles-quiz.shtml)


·      A focus on exam technique. We will go through paper specifications, planning methods, and different ways to use your time more efficiently so that you can enter the exam hall confident in your knowledge.


·      Patience. The lesson space isn’t about getting the right answer in the fastest time. It’s so much more rewarding when you learn at your own pace, with confidence in your own ideas. Remember, the journey is just as important as the destination.
