About

I have just graduated with a Distinction in a Master of Studies (MSt) in English 1550-1770 at the University of Oxford, having graduated with First Class Honours with a BA in English Language and Literature in July 2017. I have been tutoring for 4 years now and during that time have truly come to appreciate how personalised approaches to learning facitilated by the one-to-one tutoring format can truly help students to reach their potential. All of my students have seen a huge improvement in their grades, but more importantly in their confidence. Language and literature study are not subjects which come naturally to everyone and I hope to make it not only accessible but also highly enjoyable. Nothing pleases me more than hearing from former students who have gone on to study Medicine or Law that tell me that they are still reading! I have a strong academic record, not dropping a single mark in my English studies from GCSE to A Level and earning a scholarship in my first year at the University of Oxford. I was one of the top applicants for my Masters course and was recommended by the English faculty for a Humanities Division scholarship. A love of learning and lateral exploration is at the center of everything that I do and in all my educational experiences as a student and a tutor, I have found that individual thinking is the core to success. In my work as a tutor, an educational volunteer, an academic mentor and as a tutor manager for an online education company I have a nuanced understanding of the ways in which we can harness online technology to further education and child development. I have hundreds of hours experience tutoring English Literature and English Language for all levels up to A-level, IB and undergraduate level in addition to teaching English as a foreign language. I am also able to provide academic mentoring, school entrance tutoring and university admissions guidance.
