 About Me

I am a highly committed, experienced and passionate educator who always strives to get the best from students. I believe that enjoyment and education should go hand-in-hand, and for that reason always seek to develop a positive, enjoyable and motivated learning environment for the students. Whether in a classroom or one-to-one, my teaching style always focuses on building the student’s confidence in their own ability to achieve results.

In the past three years, I have worked with over 30 different tutoring clients across a range of subjects, levels and abilities. Although my academic background is in Classics, I also have experience of tutoring the Sciences, History, Maths and English to GCSE level, as well as preparing students for entry into UK Independent Schools, with almost all subjects included at 11+, 13+ and 16+. I have worked with clients on a face-to-face basis and online in Canada, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong and South Korea.

Working as a private tutor, I have experience across a range of humanities and science subjects for clients aged from 7 to undergraduate level. I have taught at one of the UK’s top independent schools, Wellington College, and currently work on a part time basis teaching 3 days per week for Loughborough Endowed Schools. I am also an examiner for the OCR Board.

Hobbies and Interests

When not teaching or tutoring, I am most likely to be enjoying the beautiful Derbyshire countryside with my partner. My three horses, Labrador and very naughty miniature Dachshund give me plenty of reason to be outside and, when time permits, I will probably be found riding, walking, clay shooting or fishing.

I love to travel to Europe and particularly enjoy spending time in Italy, indulging in my love of both the Classical World and Italian cuisine.
