About me

I love languages and literature, and have just successfully completed a PhD about poetry translation. In 2010 I won University Challenge with the Emmanuel College, Cambridge team! I'm passionate and enthusiastic, and my interests range from poetry to pottery, crochet and feminist activism. I spent a year studying in France and my French is very fluent, and during my degrees I have also studied Latin, Linguistics and English Literature.

I love languages and literature, and have just successfully completed a PhD about poetry translation. In 2010 I won University Challenge with the Emmanuel College, Cambridge team! I'm passionate and enthusiastic, and my interests range from poetry to pottery, crochet and feminist activism. I spent a year studying in France and my French is very fluent, and during my degrees I have also studied Latin, Linguistics and English Literature.

I have experience tutoring IGCSE French, A-level English and Common Entrance, with considerable success. I have also worked at a summer school teaching English as a second language to German teenagers one on one and in small groups.

I have training and experience in teaching undergraduate students in small groups and one on one, including preparing material, and setting and marking essays. I teach them literary theory and poetry. 

I have also worked with younger children, volunteering at a literacy programme in South Africa and helping supervise homework club at my school, where I gained experience guiding children through homework exercises, which is excellent preparation for tutoring! I have successfully applied to Oxbridge myself and have helped others with personal statements and interview technique before.

I also have some experience working with SEN students and students with Specific Learning Difficulties, including familiarity with autism and ADHD.

About my sessions

I am an enthusiastic, motivational teacher. I enjoy interacting with students and hearing their understanding grow. My tutoring style is lively but disciplined, and I try to relate the content to the student's interests and what they already know, while challenging them with new and exciting material. Lessons are always tailored to the pupil’s needs and the demands of the curriculum.

I am an enthusiastic, motivational teacher. I enjoy interacting with students and hearing their understanding grow. My tutoring style is lively but disciplined, and I try to relate the content to the student's interests and what they already know, while challenging them with new and exciting material. Lessons are always tailored to the pupil’s needs and the demands of the curriculum.

French tutoring can be very helpful to practise speaking, develop writing techniques, or go through any grammar points you’re finding difficult. Where possible I will try to encorporate authentic French resources. I am happy to help, whether for a one-off session to get through a tricky topic, or ongoingly, as learning a language requires consistent work over a long time and can’t easily be ‘crammed’.

For English, I can help with understanding texts, essay writing, and anything else that might come up.

In Latin, I can help with understanding and practising grammar, techniques for translation, ways to write about ancient texts, and anything else you might be stuck with.
