Cambridge English PhD candidate with three years tutoring experience. I specialise in poetry and dystopian literature

Methodology

My teaching style is a mixture of building analytical skills and exam prep. For half of my lesson my student and I will discuss the text and its themes, and build up the students confidence in analysing these. We will then practise how best to articulate those ideas in an exam, giving the student the best possible chance to succeed.

Experience

I am a PhD candidate in English at the University of Cambridge. I have a BA and MA in Comparative Literature from King's College London. I taught English in Shanghai, China for a year and have three years tutoring experience. I have taught and tutored at all levels for all ages.
