Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I'm a qualified English teacher with a degree in English Language and Linguistics. It has been very rewarding to see some of my new students improve their monitoring grades after only a few lessons. A veteran home-educator - with experience teaching English from early reading up to GCSE level - I've been delighted with excellent results.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have an enhanced DBS check.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Southlands College, which is now part of Roehampton University.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Currently all my after-school tutees are from Norton Knatchbull Grammar School. During the day, I teach a group of home educated students. We do an hour a week each of English Language and Literature. The texts we are studying are: Pride and Prejudice, An Inspector Calls and Much Ado About Nothing.

Feedback from 2017 exam session: "Such a great Tutor was predicted a grade 3 in English Literature two months before examinations and helped achieve a 7. Highly recommend - really helpful with how to revise and great to talk to."
