English Teacher and First Class Cambridge Graduate with 8 years' tutoring experience | TEFL qualified

Methodology

I have a first class BA in Education with English Literature from the University of Cambridge. This means that I have both the subject knowledge when it comes to English, as well as an understanding of how people learn and what makes the best teachers.

I have been tutoring for 8 years now, and love engaging with so many different students over subjects that I love. Whether it's helping an A-Level student crack 1984, or teaching a GCSE student how to use the conditional tense, I absolutely love sharing my enthusiasm for English.

My passion is for both the language and the literature, which means I am equipped to teach both sides of English. I have a genuine love of the subject, which is something parents and students alike have always found so palpable in me as a teacher.

The most important aspect of any good teacher or tutor, is flexibility. This is why 1-1 tuition can be so beneficial. By working with students on an individual basis, getting to know their learning styles and interests, makes the job so rewarding and useful for clients. I am never afraid of changing my style or my content, if it isn't working for the student. I have found this approach to be the most useful and helpful for all my tutees.

Background

I have worked to get students into top universities and schools across the UK, USA, and Australia. I have an in-depth knowledge of private school admissions in the UK (7+, 11+, 13+, and 16+) as well as UK and USA university admissions - having been through all of these myself. I have worked with students overseas to prepare them from the IELTS and other ESL/TEFL/TESL examinations.

I have worked in numerous schools, including a year at a top prep school in Surrey. I am TEFL accredited.

I also have a background in professional level theatre, having travelled across the USA, Canada, Caribbean, and Europe as a theatre director and producer. Plus a background in international sport, as I represented Team GB in flat-water kayaking, triathlon, and quadrathlon (winning the world championships in 2011 for the latter).
