About me

I'm excited by what languages and literature can teach us about the world, and I love sharing this interest with others! I have an excellent academic profile and valuable teaching experience that I can use to help you achieve the results you deserve.


I currently teach English at the University of Lorraine in Nancy, France, where I work with both undergraduate and postgraduate students. I also have experience working in a middle school and a high school in France, teaching students aged 11-18. I have a real passion for both French and English Literature, having studied both subjects at undergraduate level before completing a master's degree in English Literature this year. I graduated with a first/distinction in both degrees, and achieved full marks on my final master's dissertation. I'm also currently applying for PhD study in English and French literature to prepare for a lifelong career teaching and researching in my field. I've been accepted for PhD study at Oxford, Edinburgh, and St Andrews, and will decide where to study over the next few months.


Beyond tutoring English and French, I can also offer advice on applying through UCAS and writing personal statements: I was accepted to all four Scottish ancient universities (plus UCL!), so am more than happy to offer advice to students applying to university in Scotland.

About my sessions

I aim to work with parents and students to plan a tutoring programme that fully complements the course syllabus. I'd like to be able to start each tutorial with recap before moving on to cover new material in order to consolidate information. I also wish to balance content revision with consistent past paper practice so that students feel fully prepared for their exams. For students studying French, I can offer the option of conducting as much of the tutorial in French as possible.

I aim to work with parents and students to plan a tutoring programme that fully complements the course syllabus. I'd like to be able to start each tutorial with recap before moving on to cover new material in order to consolidate information. I also wish to balance content revision with consistent past paper practice so that students feel fully prepared for their exams. For students studying French, I can offer the option of conducting as much of the tutorial in French as possible. I can also offer a selection of exercises in reading, writing, speaking and listening, and can share the resources that I've found the most useful for revising vocabulary and grammar.

Most of all, I aim to foster enthusiasm for the subjects I teach, as this is the easiest way for students to stay motivated in their learning!
