Brush up your Shakespeare, school paper or test revision in Edinburgh with a highly motivated professional tutor

Methodology

My passion is for bringing subjects to life for students so that instead of learning facts they are able to take the stories into their tests, ensuring a higher level of success. I take a holistic approach to my students so that I am able to help them achieve their goals by supporting their existing strengths whilst helping to hone and refine areas that challenge them.

Experience

I have been teaching and coaching individuals for 8 years. I have taught in classrooms with up to 20 students as well as doing one on one tutoring. I have had the pleasure to work in extra-curricular learning centres, in high school in the UK and with adult English language students in Toronto, Ontario.
