About me

I am a friendly, enthusiastic and hardworking graduate committed to bringing out the best in students in my two favourite subjects: English Literature and Drama. I am an avid reader, and I chose to study Drama at University so I could bring the stories I love to life, and make them accessible to wider audiences. I love tutoring for similar reasons – finding ways to make texts accessible, enjoyable and interesting to all students.

I am a friendly, enthusiastic and hardworking graduate committed to bringing out the best in students in my two favourite subjects: English Literature and Drama. I am an avid reader, and I chose to study Drama at University so I could bring the stories I love to life, and make them accessible to wider audiences. I love tutoring for similar reasons – finding ways to make texts accessible, enjoyable and interesting to all students.


I have had plenty of experience in tutoring students through approaching essays and exams, both as part of mentoring schemes at Secondary School, and by leading weekly essay writing workshops for younger students at University. Every student is unique, and I believe in working with individuals to discover the learning techniques that are best suited to them. I have met so many pupils who say that studies “just aren’t clicking”, and it has been a great source of joy to work through various techniques with these individuals to build their confidence, and in turn demystify essay writing and exams. I am a firm believer in mental wellness being essential to a student’s growth, and as such strive to create a welcoming, comfortable environment to study and explore.

About my sessions

All of my Online Lessons are tailored to the needs of each student. Whether that’s feeling totally baffled in the classroom, or having some specific difficulties that need closer attention, I take the time to figure out what isn’t ‘clicking’ for my students, so that when lessons begin we can try a range of methods to knead out those problem areas.

All of my Online Lessons are tailored to the needs of each student. Whether that’s feeling totally baffled in the classroom, or having some specific difficulties that need closer attention, I take the time to figure out what isn’t ‘clicking’ for my students, so that when lessons begin we can try a range of methods to knead out those problem areas. Having revised for and completed exams myself, I sometimes found that the methods discussed at school didn’t ‘click’ for me, leaving me to develop my own tools for revising, planning and writing. Much of this came from building confidence with the subject material, and as such I often use conversational and visual exercises. Then, incorporating essay writing skills into these exercises help demystify exam expectations, as well as equipping students with the tools necessary for success.


I also do lessons for 11+ Exams. This will again begin with incorporating the skills required for the exams into fun, engaging activities developed to build confidence and enjoyment of the subject. As this grows, attention will turn to sample questions and then past papers, preparing students to succeed!


Please don’t hesitate to send me any questions at all; I would love to hear from you!
