About me

I understand the stress students go through leading up to their exams, or leading up to more senior years in school. I've been there, quite recently in fact. I know it's hard to express said stress sometimes because many people dismiss these feelings - or fears even - as just growing up, so I empathise deeply.

I understand the stress students go through leading up to their exams, or leading up to more senior years in school. I've been there, quite recently in fact. I know it's hard to express said stress sometimes because many people dismiss these feelings - or fears even - as just growing up, so I empathise deeply.


To say the least, English gives me a different worldview. I've learnt to appreciate different styles of writing as a form of expression and a way to get in touch with my surroundings. I've also become a lot more appreciative of our past and more aware of how our society is always evolving.

About my sessions

To begin, I will ask about the challenges they are facing and familiarise myself with them, as well as the texts they are currently studying. This may differ according to the student's learning style, but at the end of certain lessons, I will provide a short yet concise piece of extra reading to help better understanding of language and style. We will then discuss this at the beginning of the next lesson.

We will then discuss this at the beginning of the next lesson.


As for my approach to Maths, which I have studied up to and done A-Level exams for, I will go through past papers or set my own tasks depending on the students' level of education. I will focus particularly on the topics they find challenging and test them from time to time to make sure we're on track.
