Friendly, reliable and supportive PhD graduate offering personalised English tutorials to students of all ages, levels and abilities.

Methodology

I aim not only to support students in achieving the best possible grades in a given subject but also to encourage them to develop their confidence and abilities in ways that are transferable to other subjects and areas of life. In keeping with this philosophy, I always strive to promote free and critical thinking in students, as I firmly believe these skills are indispensable to any educational or vocational domain.

My services include general subject support, exam and test preparation, interview preparation and advice on effective research practice.

Background

I am an experienced, Edinburgh-based tutor offering personalised tutorials to students of all ages, levels and abilities.

I recently completed my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Sussex and hold an MSc and MA in Philosophy from the University of Edinburgh. I have tutoring experience at primary, secondary and undergraduate level.
