Tell us a bit about yourself.

I have been a teacher and held various management roles in schools including Head of Sixth Form. I have taught across all key stages and have also worked for a local authority as a trainer and education consultant. I have also taught TEFL both in the U.K. and abroad. I am familiar with AQA, OCR and Edexcel Syllabi and assessment. I look forward to supporting you with your studies and exam preparation. I enjoy reading and writing in my spare time to maintain my passion for my subject and impart my knowledge, understanding and experience to you.

What do you love most about teaching your subject?

I love reading and writing and imparting my passion for literature on to my students so that they can feel enthused about the subject of English rather than merely working towards an exam only.

What is the greatest success you've had with teaching?

I have achieved excellent results for both GCSE and A-Level and I have also taught A-Level Creative Writing, Psychology and Communication Studies to put myself in a position of the student learning something from scratch.

What exam boards and year groups do you teach?

I have taught AQA, OCR, Edexcel and WJEC exam board syllabi across my teaching career. I have also prepared students for IELTS (TEFL Teaching).

What do students love most about your teaching style?

I teach from the head and from the heart and inspire students to become independent learners and develop an intellectual curiosity that takes them into the world beyond school and college.

What are your interests outside of teaching?

I enjoy reading, creative writing, travelling, theatre, film, dancing, music, festivals, concerts, astrology, tarot, wine tasting, walking, and badminton amongst other interests.
