Experience, training and skills

I am an experienced and highly dedicated secondary school English teacher, working in an OFSTED Outstanding school to provide the highest quality English KS3, GCSE and A-Level English curriculum.

I have a proven track record of empowering my students to obtain excellent results. My approach is empathetic, individual but also rigorous and academic.

I teach AQA English Literature and Language at GCSE but can also tutor students who are studying Edexcel.
A-Level experience:
– AQA English Language and Literature
– AQA English Literature
– Edexcel English Literature


My Teaching Philosophy

I truly believe English and literacy skills are not only the cornerstone of learning and success in life, but also unique in their ability to empower young people. I teach with the goal in mind to illuminate to my students how words can transform our perspectives and make real change happen.

Through rigorous and creative planning which relates to the real world and young peoples' experiences, I am here to not only boost students' ability to read, write and communicate, but to develop their understanding of the world around them and themselves.

Choose me if…

You believe in the power of reading

You know your child’s potential could be unlocked through a more individual approach

Your child is struggling to join the dots and understand what is expected of them

Something sensational about me

I run annual poetry competitions for my students to help them see the power and magic of language. My background is in English Literature which I studied at university and specialised in contemporary African-American women’s fiction. When not teaching I spend my time reading, going to the theatre, walking and cooking.
