I studied English at Oxford and English is my passion. My aim is to develop a love of language and literature in all my students, whatever their level.

- Do you have a personal message for students?
English is arguably one of the most interesting and enjoyable subjects to study. However, everyone has a unique learning style and a classroom environment might not provide the atmosphere most conducive to learning. So if your child needs thorough preparation for the 11+ entrance exam, has their lost confidence in their ability to write or neither of you can face struggling through another reading comprehension, I can help!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have over 10 years' English teaching experience gained as a private tutor and in schools where I have taught English to both children and adults. Having taught children from aged 7-18, I now specialise in preparing children for the competitive English entrance exams.
At 11+ /pre-test I have an excellent success rate in helping children achieve places at selective west and north west London independent day schools such as North London Collegiate, Merchant Taylor's, Latymer Upper, Hampton, Colet Court, Godolphin and Latymer, Notting Hill and Ealing High. In addition I have taught a number of children to gain entry to Eton, Harrow and Marlborough.
Having relocated to west Oxfordshire from London, I am keen to bring my expertise to support children taking exams for independent schools in Oxford and surrounds.
