About me

I'm currently studying English Literature at Durham, the 5th best University in the country, and first in the world for Literature. I've been tutoring in person for a couple of years now and moved onto this site when it first started, teaching over 100 sessions, and even joining the certified Schools programme. Since then, I've tutored tens of students, with 9 of them for months at a time as a surrogate for their teachers in the run up to their exams! Furthermore, I've also wo...

I'm currently studying English Literature at Durham, the 5th best University in the country, and first in the world for Literature. I've been tutoring in person for a couple of years now and moved onto this site when it first started, teaching over 100 sessions, and even joining the certified Schools programme. Since then, I've tutored tens of students, with 9 of them for months at a time as a surrogate for their teachers in the run up to their exams! Furthermore, I've also worked as a part-time teaching assistant / drama teacher and have had many of my academic essays retained by both my sixth form and high school, for use as exemplars. Over the last couple of years, English exams have grown more complex as extra components have been added to really test the student’s abilities, but it’s often surprisingly simple to root out the cause of any difficultly, and address it as cost-effectively as possible: so, if you're just struggling with - say - punctuation in a language exam, or reading through a source etc. - I'd be more than happy to try and help you out. Equally, if it's a full text, I'm happy to structure a prolong series of sessions as a reinforcement to your current academic work, or some more advanced sessions to push beyond it, and target those 8-9s and A*s! Whatever the issue is, I'd love to help resolve it, so please drop me a message or schedule a free, informal session, and we can work quickly together to get the results you need!

About my sessions

As a general rule I try and tailor sessions for the specific student, but it all starts with the free session where we can try and get on the same page apropos to course content, exam board and time span. I can't stress enough how important it is to message with any questions, or any suggestions to how you'd like to learn.
