About me

As a teenager I was fascinated to explore literature from a more in depth academic perspective, to discover new meanings and ideas within texts. This passion led me through my A-Levels and my BA degree at Durham University. I am currently honing my skills further, as I research and write, through a postgraduate course in MA English Literary Studies at Exeter University.

As a teenager I was fascinated to explore literature from a more in depth academic perspective, to discover new meanings and ideas within texts. This passion led me through my A-Levels and my BA degree at Durham University. I am currently honing my skills further, as I research and write, through a postgraduate course in MA English Literary Studies at Exeter University.


As well as finding literary and language elements in English incredibly interesting, something that I am personally drawn to about English Language and English Literature is the way studying different texts develops a greater understanding of people and the world around me.

About my sessions

Before starting sessions I ask my students what they generally would like to work on, with an awareness that this may shift or become more specific as we dive into further tutorials. From here I will prepare suitable skill based exercises: this could be anything from textual analysis, understanding specific literary or language techniques, exam technique, or developing writing style.

Before starting sessions I ask my students what they generally would like to work on, with an awareness that this may shift or become more specific as we dive into further tutorials. From here I will prepare suitable skill based exercises: this could be anything from textual analysis, understanding specific literary or language techniques, exam technique, or developing writing style.


I work closely, providing guidance that responds sensitively to each student’s range of ability and level of understanding. As a result of my careful consideration of each student's individuality, my tutoring style is adaptable, friendly and focused.


I aim to empower my students to find joy in developing academic skills, that will enable them to thrive and express their ideas effectively, within the framework of their English studies.


I measure progress through regular spoken and written and tasks to test what has been learnt and how effectively knowledge and skills are being applied. I always include time at the start and end of tutorials for a period of reflection. Here, I discuss with my students which areas they feel more confident in, as well as the skills that we will be focusing on during our lesson time and homework.
