Hello,


I have studied English Literature and Linguistics at the University of St Andrews for the past four years and graduated in 2019 with a 2:1. I am also training to teach English at Secondary level at the University of Edinburgh.


I have a relaxed teaching style preferring to coach and guide my students to discover for themselves the amazing world of literature. I also enjoy linking concepts, theories, and texts to their modern equivalents. For example, I have taught Hamlet in terms of its characters and plot using the Lion King, which is a modern interpretation of Shakespeare's play.


I look forward to helping you understand and appreciate how literature of all types, from ancient to modern, can give you a better understanding of the world around you as well as giving you the skills to interpret the written word which you can take into any line of work you choose to enter later in life.


Thanks for reading.

About my sessions

I firmly believe in giving information in a concise and structured way so that students can easily understand the ideas, concepts, and theories before using them to interpret texts or delving further into the concept to gain a deeper understanding.


First I will ask what you want to focus on, giving guided advice about the most appropriate topics, subjects, and literature. Second, I will ask what interest you have in literature to successfully guide to literature which you w...

I firmly believe in giving information in a concise and structured way so that students can easily understand the ideas, concepts, and theories before using them to interpret texts or delving further into the concept to gain a deeper understanding.


First I will ask what you want to focus on, giving guided advice about the most appropriate topics, subjects, and literature. Second, I will ask what interest you have in literature to successfully guide to literature which you will find most beneficial to progress. I measure your progress using the guidance given by the Department for Education and Education Scotland (If you are from outside the UK I will ensure that I am fully aware of your country/state/region specific measures for progress for your study level).


I am also interested in finding new ways to teach and have recently started using Hyperdocs, a method of learning in which the student is given a series of tasks to complete at their own pace which develop, through self and coached discovery, support structured teaching of topics and concepts.
