My Passion & How I Inspire

My tuition approach, particularly for languages, is twofold:

1. To ensure that everything you learn is related to real world examples and current affairs rather than classic textbook vocabulary that you wouldn't actually ever use!

2. To use language as a means to learn about the culture, as learning more about a fascinating part of the world is a huge motivator

My Experience

I have very broad experience in tutoring, from au pairing, mentoring at summer schools, to volunteering.

- A summer au pairing in Athens, Greece, teaching two children aged 8 and 10 English & Maths

- Two summers working at summer schools in Oxford, teaching international students aged 11-20 focusing on Oxford applications

- A year volunteering at a social enterprise in Cairo, Egypt teaching English to disadvantaged university students

- Two interview seasons at my Oxford college supporting students through the process

- A season as a mock Oxbridge interviewer for students applying to English, Modern Languages and Middle Eastern Languages

Fun fact

I'm originally from Wales and have a twin sister, so we use Welsh as our secret language!
