Teaching a Love of Literature Studying Linguistics at Queen Mary University of London BA English Language and Literature Goldsmiths University London


I am a very friendly and approachable person. I think every child deserves the best. I aim to make learning fun and tailor lessons to individual needs. I am also comfortabe teaching language alongside literature. I am also interested to go over secondary reading and supporting matrerials to complement primary texts. I can also lend students useful pdf versions of notes and selected secondary reading. If they prefer not to study literature I can also give lessons in Creative writing or school level English, having written my first noivella at the age of 13.


I taught year 7 students poetry and creative writing for 8 months, alongside studying at university . A marked improvement was seen in their results. I also worked as a language trainer and conducted spoken English classes, for all age groups.
