I like to keep classes fast-paced and conversational, relying on the student to take an active engagement with the text. I can tutor any age range from primary up to degree and I'm really just looking for a student with the right attitude who wants to develop.
Though my degrees are in Classics and Ancient History, I am an avid reader and have an A-level in English Literature. Previously, I have helped Spanish students get to a B1/B2 level through conversation classes. Now I want to help GCSE or A-Level students achieve their best in the subject, but I'm open to all ages and offers because passion knows no age.
