- Where do you teach?
I am happy to teach in my own home or at students' homes, whichever suits you better. I live near Chichester in West Sussex near the border with Hampshire. I am happy to travel up to 10 miles - Emsworth, Havant, Portsmouth, Waterlooville, Arundel, Bognor Regis etc.
- When are you available?
I am available for tuition Monday to Friday, daytime or evening. I can be flexible with times - if, for example you prefer after-school during term time, this could be switched to a daytime appointment if you need to continue tuition during school holidays.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach GCSE English, Key Stage 3 English or French, Key Stage 2 French. I also teach Creative Writing, primarily to adults, though I'm happy to teach any age - from seven to ninety-seven (or older ...)!
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Everyone can benefit from one-to-one tuition - it's a time to develop self-confidence and self-belief. Classrooms are not always the easiest places to feel confident, but I'm very easy-going, patient and flexible, and will work with you to develop both your confidence and skills.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I've been a teacher of English and Drama for twenty-two years, both in a variety of schools and as a one-to-one tutor. I've also taught Key Stage 3 French. As well as being a teacher, I'm a novelist (my first two novels have been published by Little, Brown - I'm currently working on a third book for the same publisher).

I have an enhanced CRB certificate.
