Writer and Cambridge graduate giving 11+ and English Literature tuition in London

Methodology

I think the best approach is a combination of exercises and practice tests with in depth feedback after each activity. I also think it's important to mostly work in time with what the student is learning at school and confirm their full understanding of that material, which is why I'm happy to look at homework and school-set essays.

Experience

I am a writer with lots of tutoring experience (over 20 students) and with different tutoring agencies. I graduated from Cambridge University in 2019 with a degree in English literature. I tutor English at all levels - two of my students are now at Oxford - and I tutor English, Maths, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning for the 11+ (with a 90% success rate!)

WORK EXPERIENCE
• December 2021 – present: tutor with Cressida Jauncey’s tutoring agency. With Cressida Jauncey, I’ve been tutoring a student for English literature iGCSE.
• October 2020 – present: tutor with Admissions Tutors. With Admissions Tutors, I’ve tutored students of all ages and abilities for the 11+ (maths, English, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning) and for English Literature at all levels, including for A Level. (Reviews available on request!). I have total proficiency with Lessonspace and TutorCruncher.
• 2014 – 2019: Independently, and intermittently, I’ve tutored students from my school and surrounding schools, as well as family friends. I professionally tutored one student who is now at Emmanuel College, Cambridge; I helped him with his ELAT, and supervised his personal statement process. I also tutored two brothers into The Tiffin Boys’ School and one sister into Tiffin Girls’, so I’m extremely familiar with the requirements for the Surrey entrance exams!
• June 2020 – present: editor for the Consulate Section of Joyland Magazine. I select and edit short fiction for publishing on the Joyland website, under Michelle Lyn King.
• September 2019 – present: quarterly contributor to Bad Form Review, a literary magazine designed to elevate voices of colour.
• January – July 2018: copy-editor for playwright Nicky Allt’s upcoming novel.
• July 2017: shadowing scheme at CNBC, giving me experience at a financial news outlet and with the inevitably fast turnaround of business news.
• December 2016 – February 2017: worked with Doug Williamson FCA FCT to proofread exam papers set for the Association of Corporate Treasurers., which taught me extreme precision as well as how to work remotely and collaboratively.
• June – August 2016: internship at Print Quarterly, the leading international journal of printmaking.
