Who I Am

I am a trained intervention tutor who acts in secondary schools. My job is to build confidence in my students and equip them with the tools necessary to thrive in the classroom.


My Experience in Formal Education

Achieving full marks in my A-level English, History and Biology examinations, I left school with A* A* A at A-level, proving that I have discovered the most effective ways of prepping for examinations in a diverse range of academic fields. I am a graduate of The University of Edinburgh with a Masters in English Literature and History. 1-to-1 lessons with me will be focused on building your confidence.

My involvement with external examinations began with me as a student polymath, juggling a spectrum of GCSE subjects and achieving 4A*s and 7As. I then took A-levels from very different subject areas, (English (Literature), History (Humanities) and Biology (Science)). My own experience as a student, myth-busting the requirements for examinations, together with my enthusiasm for and experience in teaching provides my students with the tools they need to sit any examination successfully.

About my sessions

What I Can Do For You


I offer a taster session where we set goals and get a sense of your learning style so that I can curate lessons for you accordingly. I set examination style questions for my students to complete from the very first lesson. Engaging in dialogue with my students, rather than lecturing them, allows me to monitor progress every step of the way. This allows you to get the most out of your 1-to-1 lesson.

I am here to dispel those myths surrounding what markers are looking for when grading English papers, providing you with a formula for constructing your essays and other written responses. The step-by-step guide I provide will ensure you get the marks that you deserve. All lessons are designed to play to the strengths of my students. This method builds both confidence and knowledge in my students so they can tackle the tricky bits and enjoy the process of learning at the same time.

I like how she simplifies things. She knows my weakness and she is professional in teaching. I feel happy and comfortable working with Olivia.

It was so informative. Olivia is talented in explaining difficult tasks. In each lesson, I learn new material.

it was effective and informative. She focused on guiding me to effectively go through an article and summarise important points just by reading the introduction.
