I love teaching and tutoring students and seeing them enjoy the results of their hard work. I am a Cambridge educated tutor and teacher as well as university lecturer at Aston University and Birmingham University. My approach to tuition is to ensure that it is quality, bespoke and tailored to the student's ability and their specific curriculum and learning style. Being able to engage students in their learning and creating fearless, passionate learners who enjoy their studies is vital. I am extensively qualified and experienced as well as being an English examiner for AQA. With the help of my tuition many students have attained the highest levels at A level and GCSE, SATs as well as entry into their chosen grammar school at 11+.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I favour a hands on approach to teaching. I believe that students learn best when they are working out problems actively rather than passively. Developing effective strategies and methods to learn challenging concepts really helps students to become independent learners who are both confident and competent.

What qualifications do you have?

BA Hons Degree in English and a masters in English Literature.
