With a BA Hons degree in English from Nottingham University and a PGCE in English 11 -18 from Manchester University, I have taught English in both state and independent schools, developing plenty of expertise across the age and ability range.

This includes mentoring students for university entrance and giving extra help to those applying for Oxbridge and colleges in the USA. I have a strong and varied academic profile as well as excellent qualifications.

During my time in schools, I oversaw the introduction of new A level syllabuses, had responsibility for the curriculum structure and assessment at both KS3 and KS4, and also ran drama, debating and public speaking societies.

I have plenty of good experience to draw from to help my students improve very quickly.  I endeavour to instil in them the confidence to express themselves with fluency, clarity and imaginative flair. Bringing out the best in people is what really motivates me. I encourage students to believe in themselves through demonstrating what their application can achieve in tandem with my expertise and skills.

With a strong academic and educational profile, I can help students of all levels achieve their potential and secure the very highest grades they are capable of in examinations.
