Methodology

My passion is for bringing subjects to life for students so that instead of learning facts they are able to take the stories into their tests, ensuring a higher level of success. I take a holistic approach to my students so that I am able to help them achieve their goals by supporting their existing strengths whilst helping to hone and refine areas that challenge them.

Background

I have been a professional educator since 2009. While my primary field is English I have been studying history since my university days. With both backgrounds under my belt I can help students with retaining information as well as cleaning up their writing skills for testing and projects.
