    My Experience

    I have extensive experience helping students with their academic work. I have taught in preparation for 11+ examinations, GCSE, A-Level and university entrance (Oxbridge) interviews.

    I studied English at Cambridge and, having myself been through the long process of examinations and interviews, have a good understanding of the various pressures and difficulties that students are presented with along the way.

    In 2012 I taught English as a foreign language in Mongolia for six months, where I had to design lesson plans from scratch to engage a large group of children.

    English Language up to A-Level
    Personal Statement assistance
    Oxbridge interview preparation

    My Passion And How I Inspire

    I like to engage students with an interactive tutoring style. I make my lessons a two-way experience: one where students feel they are not engaged in a prolonged, tiresome lecture but rather, a genuine back-and-forth.

    Importantly, I believe that lessons should be suited to the specific individual. Different people benefit from different teaching methods. Some prefer formal exercises and others thrive in a more debate driven environment and I adapt my lessons depending on what I feel will best suit the student.

    I also like to use examples from the world outside. I have found that students unenthused with a subject often can’t see it’s relevance to their own lives. Why study a medieval poem? Why learn about rhetorical writing? When teaching English Literature, for example, I try to reinforce the notion that the study of language is all around us; from newspaper articles to political speeches, from renaissance drama to restaurant menus.
