I am an emotionally intelligent, perceptive creative-problem solver and socially conscious writer with a drive for politically relevant content. My first play, Fog of War, debuted in September of 2021.

Years of work experience at primary schools in London and Bath has trained my teaching techniques, allowing me to communicate complex ideas to younger minds and give emotional support.

In studying Creative Writing at University and honing my craft, I am able to combine a wealth of knowledge with proficient teaching skills to efficiently communicate complex ideas to students of all ages.

The same is the case for Alto Saxophone, which I have been playing at an international level since I was 14 (when I was playing in the National Youth Jazz Orchestra).

About Me

I have a 2:1 BA Hons in Creative Writing (Bath Spa University) and A-Levels in English Language and Creative Writing.

I have written Fog of War, a play set around the Battle of Barnet. This weekend debut took place at Hadley Church in front of an audience of over 250 people. Fog of War has also had several features in local magazines, including Barnet Society.

I am a published poet, sharing a poetry book with many successful poets including Benjamin Zephania.

I have played Alto Saxophone for over a decade, performing in some well-known venues including the Royal Albert Hall.

I have taught as a Teaching Assistant for two years across various Primary Schools in North London and Bath. Including my work as a nursery assistant, I have taught children from ages 3 up to 11 in groups and in 1:1 settings.


I tutor English, Creative Writing, and Alto Saxophone both online and in London.

Our first lesson will focus on building a relationship. I will ask various questions about the student's experience to establish an understanding of what I should cover and how I should adapt my teaching style for them.

We will then construct a routine for them to follow and maintain outside of lesson time. This routine and their progress will be reviewed every lesson.

I insist on developing a friendly atmosphere with an emphasis on understanding; if the student found a task particularly difficult, we will simply step back and approach the easier task prior to it. I avoid intellectual shaming since it is proven to stifle a student’s learning.
