About me

I understand how pivotal a good teacher is in shaping a child's future more than most. My own relationship with education was tenuous; during primary school, I never got above 40% in tests and hated lessons because I was embarrassed by failure. Luckily, I was blessed to move to a secondary school where I had teachers who gave me confidence and instigated a passion for life-long learning. Contrary to expectations, I have recently graduated from the University of Edinburgh ...

I understand how pivotal a good teacher is in shaping a child's future more than most. My own relationship with education was tenuous; during primary school, I never got above 40% in tests and hated lessons because I was embarrassed by failure. Luckily, I was blessed to move to a secondary school where I had teachers who gave me confidence and instigated a passion for life-long learning. Contrary to expectations, I have recently graduated from the University of Edinburgh with Upper Second-Class Honours in MA English Literature, achieving First-Class Honours in my dissertation.


I offer a perspective on education most tutors cannot provide. I'm not innately smart or talented, and I've had to work for my academic achievements – but I understand that genius does not make a good teacher. Learning does not just take place between pre-school and university but is a lifelong process that should be enjoyed; mistakes and 'failure' lay the foundation for success. Every individual has a valid opinion – it's just a matter of how it's articulated.

About my sessions

I start by asking students what they wish to achieve from lessons and build from a micro-scale: simplifying concepts, improving argument structure, exam technique surgery – I always make sure that our work is collaborative and appropriate to their learning style. I pride myself on my flexibility, and depending on the student's wishes, my role can range from acting as a coursework helper to a supplementary tutor for their normal school classes.

My son lacks confidence in learning and believing in himself. Bradley is understanding and helps him break down the sessions to bite size chunks. I can see he is interested in the sessions already. Looking forward to results with Bradley.
