Liverpool-based English Literature tutor (University of Liverpool English graduate, Creative Education expert)

Methodology

Whilst I specialise in English Literature and Language GCSEs, I am able to teach Secondary, Primary, and up to A level.

I take an interactive and energetic approach to teaching, using worked examples from set texts, and exploring them in depth.

Background

I have created GCSE curriculum packs for theatre companies including the Rubbish Shakespeare Company and MATE Productions, visiting a wide variety of schools across the North-West, to critical acclaim by teachers.

I am a youth theatre director for MATE productions, a Liverpool and Knowsley based theatre company.
