Honours English Literature Graduate offering English and essay writing lessons in London

Methodology

My teaching method is personal to everyone, but I believe it is important to find out what aspect of the subject the student is most interested in, and find a way to grow that interest into a confident, wider appreciation for the subject. Where there is genuine interest, students are much more likely to excel.

Experience

Currently based in London, I am a graduate from the University of Edinburgh, where I obtained a first class honours in English Literature in 2018. I am passionate about making English Literature fun accessible and rewarding to my students, and believe that the skills gained through reading and responding to literature are applicable to most other subjects. I have experience with a wide range of students, from 11+ applicants, GCSE preparation to improving Graduate and Post-Graduate Level Essay writing. I am also able to teach philosophy A Level, UCAS personal statements and essay writing techniques.
