I am a full time private tutor in English, Literature, Modern Foreign Languages, Classics and Academic Skills; I work hard with every student on a personal and individual basis to make sure that they can achieve their potential and attain the highest grades possible. My students often boost their grades dramatically within a few months, or achieve fluency in a language within a year.
I have over 8 years experience in 1-1 tutoring, so I am comfortable teaching a variety of exam boards (CIE, AQA, Edexcel, OCR) and also helping more casual learners or adult learners with specific goals. I regularly tutor at Degree, Masters and PHD level, with a particular focus on essay and academic writing. I am an approved AQA examiner; qualified to mark exam papers in both English Literature and Language GCSE and A Level.
I love learning of all kinds and I hope to pass on this enthusiasm to my students. I provide a professional, yet friendly and welcoming environment where students are encouraged to learn and also to enjoy their subjects.
Each person learns best in his or her own particular way, so I provide personalised lesson plans to meet the individual needs of my students.
Availability: I currently have limited availability.
I offer intensive lessons for University and A Level, where we sit together and go over an essay or exam paper until you are fully happy with it.
Monday- Friday, 9am-10pm - weekend lessons are available for students with imminent deadlines.
I have a been teaching online for over 5 years. I`m available to teach via Skype if students are not able to travel.
ALL STUDENTS ARE ENTITLED TO A FREE TRIAL LESSON.
LESSONS MAY BE CANCELLED OR CHANGED FREE OF CHARGE WITH 24HRS NOTICE.

I have been a tutor for 8 years, teaching a variety of students of all ages and levels in a number of different subjects. I teach a wide range of subjects to high proficiency because I love learning - Literature, Languages and Classics are particular passions of mine which I`ve studied to a high degree of proficiency over the years.
TEACHING / EXAMINER POSITIONS
I spent 2 years as Head of English for CHS (Cambridge Home School. I constructed syllabuses for and taught lower school, iGCSE and A Level English Language and English Literature, though our exam board is CIE, I`m also familiar with other exam boards, AQA and Edexcel in particular. I have been an examiner for AQA English for the past two years.
OXBRIDGE APPLICATIONS / UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE
I regularly help students with their Personal Statements, entrance exams and interview technique for top universities, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, Durham and UCL. I can help in this regard with any chosen subject, recently I have helped students with Psychology entrance exams for Oxford and Cambridge, as well as writing personal statements for Business Management and History.
ENTRANCE EXAMS / INTERVIEWS
I assist students regularly with entrance exams and interview technique for top level schools, especially the 11+. 13+ and 16+ English and Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning skills.
I am a fully qualified TEFL teacher (English Language - Distinction Grade with TEFL Cambridge Intensive Course, Business English, Academic English), having worked with five online teaching companies (in the UK, China, Russia and Japan).
In 2012 I graduated from the University of Bristol with a First Class degree in English. I am confident in tutoring both English Language and English Literature, as well as general research and essay writing skills.
I have an A Level in French, and I attained full marks in my speaking exam and my coursework. I love to read in French, cook French food and I visit friends in France regularly. I am happy to teach French to students of all levels and ages I am very familiar with the AQA and CIE exam specifications.
In 2012 I lived in Florence, Italy, where I attended a language school and picked up Italian. Having learnt through total immersion, I achieved a high rate of fluency in a short period of time. I love Italian culture as much as the language, and have spent time managing an Italian restaurant in the past. I currently teach CIE Italian but am also familiar with AQA.
