I was born in England and have been through the English and Scottish education systems.
I studied Politics at the University of Edinburgh after finishing secondary school a year early, at 17. I then moved to Los Angeles to pursue a Film Production degree at the University of Southern California which is ranked the No.1 film school in the world. Being in university in the U.S has broadened my knowledge by taking a 'General Education' breadth of classes - from Maths, Biology, History, business and french. All of the latter classes pus more have been continued in at university level meaning they are fresh in my brain! My passion for film is also linked to strong interests in creative writing and business.
I also have a strong interest in geology and have taken multiple university level classes.
Music has also always been central to my life, achieving grade 8 Violin at 14 and grade 5 Piano.
My teaching experience stems from teaching music to 14-16 year olds in High school and holding the position of teaching assistant at university for film production classes. Being a teaching assistant has really sparked a desire to teach. I have also tutored secondary school students 1-1 in geography and Art History students in first year university.
I am a determined and creative person, this extends to how I go about teaching - finding ways that are tailored to and work best with the student. I want to be at service to the student and help them understand. I am also patient - I know that concepts are not always easy to understand immediately. It is a process that is individual for each student. It takes time, practice and some times things need to be broken down into bite size chunks.
What levels I teach:
I am confident teaching up to and including AQA GCSE level and SQA Advanced Highers.
