I have taught English language and literature in Moscow, Mexico City, Singapore and Tel Aviv. I have assisted undergraduate students at leading UK universities to achieve 1st class results in coursework. I also have extensive experience in helping students gain entrance to top schools in the UK (e.g. Winchester), as well as assist them with personal statements and Oxbridge preparation.

My Passion And How I Inspire
I try and make my lessons as enjoyable as possible, and to be encouraging and supportive. If someone is struggling in a subject, I believe it is important to not only give them the academic tools by which they can improve, but to give them the confidence they need to apply what they have leant. I also believe learning and being inquisitive should be a pursuit in itself, and so I hope these lessons will be as engaging as possible.
My video Introduction
I’ve lived in several countries including Jordan, Russia and Israel, and I love learning new languages. I used to be a terrorism correspondent in the Middle East!
