About me

Hi! I've always had an affinity and passion for languages and literature and am keen to help others grow more confident in their own skills. I'm half Japanese, live between the UK, Germany and Japan, and I have a lot of techniques and tips up my sleeve! I can guide students towards the highest possible marks for IB/A-Level and GCSE. For my tutorials, I keep things relaxed but focussed on exactly what you need and/or find interesting. We'll cover the exact syllabus so you're hitting all the nails on the head for your exam, but ultimately, you decide what we cover! Ideally, you should be confident in all four aspects of the language - or for English Lit/Lang, be able to comfortably tackle any ol' text they throw at you! For those applying to do a language/linguistics at university, I can help with personal statements! I received A*'s at GCSE for French, German, Japanese, English Language, and English Literature; A's at A-Level for German and Japanese, and was in the top 0.9% of IB grades worldwide for my year, with a 7 in HL German. I graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a first in Linguistics and Japanese in 2017. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or book a Meet the Tutor Session with me!

About my sessions

These will largely depend on the student! We can create a schedule and format together, which I believe is the best way forward.
