My Passion & How I Inspire

Every student is an individual. Of course, that's easy to say but in practice, sometimes teachers can use the same approach with everyone they teach. I start with a blank page: My first priority is to get to know students; what they feel they need and what concerns them. I design every programme of study from scratch, in consultation with the student. When things get tough, I'm a calm presence and I don't quit. And I love what I do! I'm passionate about learning and I want to help others feel that passion too.

My Experience

I have twenty years experience of teaching at universities and colleges in the UK and worldwide, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. In addition, I have privately tutored undergraduates and postgraduates for several years. What I enjoy most is working with individual students to help them fulfil their potential. I have a particular speciality in tutoring on dissertations and independent study modules.
