I’ve prepared History students for their A-level and GCSE exams with AQA and Edexcel and given private Latin lessons to homeschooled students. For two years I taught English as a Foreign Language to small classes in Mexico, and I’ve been an AQA examiner for the A-level Spanish oral assessment.

My Passion And How I Inspire
Flexible in terms of finding the right approach for each student, clear in terms of setting ambitious but achievable learning targets and organizing the student to meet them.
I find tutoring especially rewarding when I can see my students are becoming more knowledgeable, confident and committed to meeting their goals. I can’t promise that every student will also become as passionate as I am about the subjects I teach, but having a bit more confidence and a sense of achievement can help them go a very long way!
My video Introduction
I can speak or read fluently in six languages — it all comes from learning Latin when I was young and having a passion for books and travel!
