About Me

I have been working in education for 18 years, and am an experienced secondary English teacher. I have QTS, and am DBS checked. I have also worked in primary education. I have tutored at Key Stage 2, KS3, GCSE, and A level. Based in Gloucestershire, all tutoring is currently online via Zoom or similar. 


I offer either individual or small group sessions (maximum 4 students), tutoring English at all levels from 11+ to A level. Tuition is available in English Language and Literature for all secondary years, including GCSE resits. I also offer tuition for pupils preparing for the 11+, and scholarship entry. Tutoring sessions are specifically geared to the student’s individual needs, and may include functional literacy, close discussion of a set text, exam preparation and revision skills, and past papers. We can follow a specific syllabus, with the flexibility to focus on any particular aspect of the curriculum; or study organically, choosing interesting and challenging texts to read that offer the opportunity to learn effectively while developing a strong set of English skills. The work agenda is set by the student and parents, which means that we can focus on specific areas of study, leading to improvements in understanding and exam grades.
