About me

I have just graduated from Durham University with an English Literature degree. My particular interests are Old Norse and Victorian Literature and I wrote my dissertation on Thomas Hardy. I am taught by world-leading academics in these fields. I love the depth and breath of my subject; I am excited by individual words and their translation onto the stage and screen. I am very involved in theatre performance at university so will bring an engaging and analytical approach to my tutoring.

I am very involved in theatre performance at university so will bring an engaging and analytical approach to my tutoring.

I am also a keen walker so am always excited to talk about a text in relation to its literary landscape. I recently walked the South Downs Way (the landscape that Thomas Hardy was inspired by!). I love swimming, old films, and going to the theatre. I am just about to start an MFA in Theatre Directing at Birkbeck University in London.

About my sessions

I understand that every learner requires a different teaching method. In the initial meeting, I would always talk to my student about what method they prefer. Personally, as a student, I often find the scope of what I need to learn terrifying so I like to break things down step by step so it is achievable. I bring this method to my teaching.

I understand that every learner requires a different teaching method. In the initial meeting, I would always talk to my student about what method they prefer. Personally, as a student, I often find the scope of what I need to learn terrifying so I like to break things down step by step so it is achievable. I bring this method to my teaching. I have to have a clear work plan from the outset too! I will help my students improve by providing strong foundations before complicating ideas such as teaching literary techniques before reading a poem. I never retain information if it is dictated to me or a boring block of text so I will always make my lessons interactive and energised! 

Although I did the IB myself, I am very familiar with A Level texts through my university studies and beyond. I always like learning new information outside of my comfort zone (and appreciating that a student will often know more!)
