Subjects I teach
French up to undergraduate
Latin up to undergraduate
I have 10 years tutoring and teaching experience and have taught a wide gamut of ages, abilities and subjects, and in a variety of educational settings. In the most recent round of public examination results, I am particularly proud of my Latin students who all achieved an A or A* at GCSE and A-Level, with one student achieving full marks in all her papers.
My higher education teaching experience includes lecturing and providing one-on-one tutorials for a final-year paper in the Faculty of History at the University of Cambridge and leading seminars for French courses at University College London.
Complementing my music outreach work, I have also enjoyed working with Villiers Park Educational Trust over the past few years, working with sixth-formers based at state schools and colleges across England. I have devised and delivered French and English courses pitched at undergraduate level for the Trust. More recently, I have co-led ‘Thriving and Surviving’ courses which have included sessions on study skills, time management and budgeting.

Whilst at school, I passed Grade 8 ballet with the Royal Academy of Dance, as well as Grade 8 singing (ABRSM) with merit.
My Approach to Private Tuition
Confidence and inquisitiveness are to my mind crucial in the learning process. Building confidence and inspiring inquisitiveness thus lie at the centre of all my teaching. I work with tutees to help them develop the skills needed to acquire and deploy knowledge in a given subject, as well as to know how to resolve an aspect of a subject which is currently proving to be challenging. In other words, I am not interested in providing ‘answers’ but helping tutees develop the means to find out the answers for themselves in independent study. I also have a keen interest in teaching and exposing students to material outside of syllabi.
My video Introduction
“I just wanted to thank you for the revision supervision we had midway through Easter Term – it really helped me out both in terms of specific feedback but also general morale boosting… You were exactly what I needed – accommodating, giving pithy advice and evidently cared how I took it on”
