Experienced tutor and Oxford graduate offering online or face-to-face lessons in English literature, ISEB preparation, and other subjects.

Methodology

I think it is important that each lesson is designed around a clear and relevant target. When you split up an overall aim into smaller goals, progress becomes easier to achieve and to measure. English can be such a creative and thought-provoking subject: that's why I always encourage my students to think for themselves. I want them to develop their skills, not just memorise information.

Experience

I graduated from Oxford University in 2019 with a first-class degree in English Language and Literature, having already obtained A* grades in the subject at GCSE and A-Level. Since then I have completed a masters in political theory at the LSE. I have been a tutor for over four years and have more than 600 hours of experience. I have experience teaching in the classroom and online, one-to-one and in groups. My students have ranged from primary school to university level.
