I am a Masters qualified tutor and PhD candidate based in North London. I work with students with a range of ages, levels, and subjects and have helped students achieve excellent results.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach English, Maths, Science and History up to Key Stage 3 level; I also teach humanities subjects at GCSE and A-Level, and English at degree level. I teach English as a Foreign Language.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I am a first year PhD student in English, and have received training for a Graduate Teaching Certificate.

I have a Master's degree in English Literature from University College London, which I passed with distinction. I also have a first class Bachelor's degree in English Literature from Cambridge University. I have three A-levels, in English, Music and Film Studies (all A's) and Grade 5 Music Theory (which I passed with distinction).
What kind of experience do you have?
I have worked as a private tutor for one and a half years, teaching common entrance, Key Stage 3, GCSE and A-level English, and degree-level essay writing. I have helped my students achieve excellent grades: recent results include a high B in GCSE English (improved from an E) and an A in A-level English (improved from a C).

I have taught English as a Foreign Language, English Literature IB and Theory of Knowledge IB at summer schools for the last three years.

I also currently work as a freelance editor, helping professional writers by editing and proofreading their work.
How much do you charge?
My standard fee is £35 per hour. This is subject to negotiation - if, for example, I am teaching two or more members of the same family, or if lessons are longer than an hour, I will offer a reduced rate. I do not charge extra for travel.
Where do you teach?
I teach at students' homes; I am also happy to teach in public spaces, such as libraries or cafes, if this is preferable. My tuition base is North London, but I am willing to travel.
When are you available?
I am available on weekday afternoons and on weekends. I can also offer tuition on weekdays during school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I work with beginners (aged 7 onwards) up to undergraduate level. I also offer Oxbridge entrance tuition.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I do not have an up-to-date CRB certificate but I can obtain one on request.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I offer lessons by e-mail and Skype.
Where and with whom did you train?
Birkbeck, University of London; University College London; and Girton College, Cambridge University.
