I have undertaken a range of teaching roles over the past four years, having tutored extensively on an individual basis and having worked as a classroom teacher. I specialise in tutoring Latin, English Literature, English Language, Maths, French, and Law.
I have a wealth of experience tutoring Latin, typically at GCSE level. My approach is to distil complex Latin grammar into simple, digestible concepts.
Similarly, I have tutored English Language on a frequent basis. Over the past 3 years I have taught multiple students in 11+ English. I have prepared students for entry into such schools as Dulwich College, Bedford School and St Paul's Girls' School.
I studied at Bedford School from 2007-2012, obtaining 1 A* and 3 As at A Level in Latin, English, French and Classical Civilisation respectively. I then studied University College London. I graduated with a BA Classics (First Class Honours), winning the Otto Skutsch Prize for Latin. In 2016, I obtained a Graduate Diploma in Law (Distinction) from City Law School. I am currently studying for the Bar Professional Training Course so as to become a barrister.
While studying for my undergraduate degree I qualified as an English as a Foreign Language Teacher, obtaining a CertTESOL (Distinction) from Trinity College London.
Having studied French at A Level, I continue to speak to a near-fluent level.
I have a dynamic approach to tutoring that caters to the needs of each student. I begin by discussing and setting clear goals. Then I establish what the most efficient method of achieving those goals are and what style of teaching will benefit the student most.
Though some tutors lecture their students, my lessons tend to be highly interactive - the more active a student's mind, the better they retain the material. I often use questions to check the student's understanding and to encourage him or her to think creatively about the material.
A consistent feature of my lessons is my use of past papers and examiners' reports. These often neglected resources are gold dust in preparing students for relevant exams.
What I do when I am not tutoring
Studying for the Bar Professional Training Course allows me a flexible timetable. I am typically free all day on Monday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Occasionally, I am free for evening lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
In my spare time I take part in debating and play tennis.
