About me

I'm currently studying Italian, with modules in Linguistics, at Oxford university. I have a real passion for both language and literature and am always happy to engage in discussions about texts. The joy of these subjects being that there is often not a 'right answer', I find the scope for personal interpretation the most wonderful part of studying language in all its forms.

I'm currently studying Italian, with modules in Linguistics, at Oxford university. I have a real passion for both language and literature and am always happy to engage in discussions about texts. The joy of these subjects being that there is often not a 'right answer', I find the scope for personal interpretation the most wonderful part of studying language in all its forms. Having sat GCSEs, A Levels and the MLAT Oxbride entrance exams, as well as the Preliminary Oxford exams, I have a lot of experience in honing not only the knoweldge you need for success, but also the technique. There are a whole host of tips that can help make your revision go that extra mile. I can also help you with interviews and the university application process. Though it can all seem very daunting, there are a number of ways to go about making the whole thing that bit more straightforward and less intimidating.

At university, I am very involved in Access and Outreach prgrammes, encouraging those who do not necessarily come from schools with a history of successful university candidates to make an application. I feel very strongly about encouraging everyone, regardless of their background, to broaden their horizions. Aside from this, I enjoy being part of Italian Society and, more recently, working as part of the crew for student theatre.

I look forward to meeting you and hopefully inspiring you to push yourself to achieve the very best you can.

About my sessions

I think a student-led lesson is the best way to ensure that our sessions are as beneficial as they can be. With this in mind, I would ask students to think about what specifically they would like some extra support with. That way, I can plan lessons around what they feel they need and create appropriate resources to facilitate this. 

For GCSE and A Level students, I will also establish which exam board the student is following and tailor the sessions accordingly. That way, they can...

I think a student-led lesson is the best way to ensure that our sessions are as beneficial as they can be. With this in mind, I would ask students to think about what specifically they would like some extra support with. That way, I can plan lessons around what they feel they need and create appropriate resources to facilitate this. 

For GCSE and A Level students, I will also establish which exam board the student is following and tailor the sessions accordingly. That way, they can be reassured that what we are covering is relevant to their course and, ultimately, to exam success. 

If the student believes that informal tests and quizzes would help to consolidate their knoweldge and track progress, I am more than happy to prepare them in accordance with the requirements of their exam board. We can even look at past paper questions together and talk through them of the student has done some preparation prior to the Online Lesson. Of course, I will never surprise you with a 'test' that you didn't know about beforehand. They are simply to help you and give you the reassurance that you're on track.
