English classes to perfect your English! One-to-one lessons, tailor made for every student.

As a native English speaker with a degree in English Literature and 8 years of teaching experience I am passionate about helping others find confidence in speaking, reading and writing the English language.

I specialise in furthering English as a second language through immersion and conversation which helps to highlight areas to work on in a natural way. Further work on grammar, spelling and language structure can be set, particularly with any exams or deadlines in mind. Each class will be tailored to the student's specific needs! I look forward to working with you :)

About Me

I am a fully qualified English tutor with 8 years experience teaching a range of ages from 6 to 18+.

Having studied both English Literature and Philosophy up to degree level, I am passionate about these subjects as well as making them accessible and interesting for others!

I love working with my students in a tailor-made learning environment to help them achieve not only their desired goal, but to be able to take what they have learned away with them into the future!

I always strive to inspire a sense of passion and enjoyment in my students - it is my belief that excelling in a subject comes from a true understanding of it, not just learning the stock answers to 'pass the exam'.

I work with the student, and parents, to make lessons tailored to the individual, instilling core skills that transcend the subject we are studying together. This allows the individual to take what they have learned and apply it to all areas of their education and life outside of our lessons together.
