About me


I am thrilled to be studying English at Durham University. Getting my place here wasn't easy, but my work ethic and passion for English helped me to get the A Levels I needed to secure my place at the University. I have always adored English as I believe that humanity has developed through the concepts most profoundly conveyed by Literature. One book can teach you so much about the world!

Alongside reading (a lot) for my degree, I enjoy playing the piano and will be joining the Theatre and Rowing societies in my university.

About my sessions

Being a student myself, I have an excellent understanding of the most effective teaching methods to enable a student to absorb information. I am empathetic and will work through problems with students patiently. I always ensure that my lessons are engaging by encouraging as much student involvement as possible, which also makes me aware of what areas we need to focus on and enables me to track the student's progress. Also, I will sometimes set small homework tasks which we will go through...

Being a student myself, I have an excellent understanding of the most effective teaching methods to enable a student to absorb information. I am empathetic and will work through problems with students patiently. I always ensure that my lessons are engaging by encouraging as much student involvement as possible, which also makes me aware of what areas we need to focus on and enables me to track the student's progress. Also, I will sometimes set small homework tasks which we will go through in lessons which further helps me in monitoring the progress of a student. Typically, I will ease students into lessons with grammatical exercises and we will then go through essay structure, how to respond to exam questions, deconstructing quotes in their set texts and teaching them how to analyse these texts so that they can eventually answer exam questions without my guidance. My ultimate aim is to transmit my passion for English to my students so that they can eventually motivate themselves.
