About me

I absolutely love English because of the other worlds it can take us to. You don't just learn about words, you learn about people, places, history and how to communicate with each other. When we read we escape reality and explore life as someone else. Through the study of English we can also become amazing at forming arguments and use language in a really powerful way which can help us make changes in society, get the jobs we want and make people laugh.

I absolutely love English because of the other worlds it can take us to. You don't just learn about words, you learn about people, places, history and how to communicate with each other. When we read we escape reality and explore life as someone else. Through the study of English we can also become amazing at forming arguments and use language in a really powerful way which can help us make changes in society, get the jobs we want and make people laugh. I have been teaching English in secondary schools and across the globe for a number of years now and the BEST thing has been all my students' weird and wonderful ideas about the texts we read and their own writing - no two answers have ever been the same which is really inspiring!

I can help you improve by injecting a passion for English into our sessions and using images wherever we can to make accessing those tricky texts easier and more engaging.

I really look forward to working with you!

About my sessions

I favour a student centred approach so before we get started I would like to know what you love most about English and why and also the areas that you find most challenging and why, this way we can make sure we can target those tougher areas specifically but also making sure we do some of the things you enjoy most as well. We'll be doing lots of discussion of ideas as social learning is the most effective and talking lots is proven to making our writing easier and help us formulate comple...

I favour a student centred approach so before we get started I would like to know what you love most about English and why and also the areas that you find most challenging and why, this way we can make sure we can target those tougher areas specifically but also making sure we do some of the things you enjoy most as well. We'll be doing lots of discussion of ideas as social learning is the most effective and talking lots is proven to making our writing easier and help us formulate complex arguments more easily.

Each session will start off with a starter task which either focuses on revision from a previous lesson or introduces some of the concepts for the rest of our lesson. We'll then begin to introduce some key themes and vocabulary for the lessons before delving into some more complex critical thinking and argument forming. Finally, we'll end the session with a short interactive summary activity so that I can check your understanding which will help me plan for our next lesson together. Our discussions throughout the lesson will also help me measure your progress and know how to best help you in our following sessions.
