About me

At school I adored English and the creativity involved. It's not like Maths or Science where there is a wrong answer! You can interpret a text however you like, as long as you can provide a convincing argument using evidence. I liked analysing literature to figure out its deeper meanings and to think about what message the writer might have wanted to communicate to us.

At school I adored English and the creativity involved. It's not like Maths or Science where there is a wrong answer! You can interpret a text however you like, as long as you can provide a convincing argument using evidence. I liked analysing literature to figure out its deeper meanings and to think about what message the writer might have wanted to communicate to us.

 

Being passionate about English I want to help others to develop analytical and essay writing skills, as well as reading skills and spelling, punctuation and grammar. I want to inspire students, to make learning enjoyable through a range of teaching activities and to boost each student's confidence.

 

I studied English Literature at A-Level, achieving an A* and winning the school's annual English Literature prize. I then pursued an English Literature undergraduate degree at Durham University and achieved First Class Honours. I also studied a Masters in Gender Studies at UCL, which enabled me to study literature further.

 

I taught English to foreign students aged 10-17 on three summer camps. This allowed me to develop my teaching skills and I also gained a lot of experience in lesson planning. During sixth form I also mentored younger students in English Literature.

 

I hope that my energy, enthusiasm and chatty personality will make each lesson enjoyable.

About my sessions

I am happy to take on both long-term and one-off students.


I aim to make each lesson engaging and exciting by providing students with a range of activities. I initially begin with a starter to inspire the student and to encourage their creative thinking in preparation for the lesson ahead. The final five minutes will be spent recapping on the lesson and noting any further concerns to address in the next session.

I am happy to take on both long-term and one-off students.


I aim to make each lesson engaging and exciting by providing students with a range of activities. I initially begin with a starter to inspire the student and to encourage their creative thinking in preparation for the lesson ahead. The final five minutes will be spent recapping on the lesson and noting any further concerns to address in the next session.


I am keen to focus on what each student is most concerned about and therefore allow them to dictate the content of the lessons. I therefore require work or issues to be sent to me before the lesson so that I can make sure that I am prepared to focus on the student's concerns and that the lesson is tailored fully to each student's needs. 


I want every student to be fully involved in their lesson and so, rather than an hour of me dictating, I aim to allow each student to have the opportunity to express their ideas and by working together we can inspire each other when analysing texts. I want our ideas to bounce off one another!


I treat each student individually and teach each lesson at the pace appropriate for them.
