My Passion & How I Inspire

Top grades are prerequisites for applications to medical school and scientific courses at university. To that end, I will quickly identify and remedy any weaknesses in your understanding and application of the syllabus. I place a heavy emphasis on the use of past papers as there is no substitute for practice! I have the highest expectations of both myself and my students. I will push you to engage with your subject and think critically to give you the best chance of realising your ambitions. After all, your success is mine.

My Experience

I spent 2017 and 2018 in Shanghai tutoring international students applying to British independent schools at both 11 and 13+. Subjects included English, Mathematics, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning and Latin. All of my students obtained offers to at least of their desired schools, including unconditional offers from Sevenoaks and Benenden.
