- Personal Message
- Tutoring is about engaging with the student I'm working with, and finding out what their door to the subject is - what will enable them to be confident and excited about it, and to succeed?
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
- English, Maths and Alexander Technique
- Tell me about your qualifications.
- I have a BA in English (Double First) from the University of Cambridge, where I studied between 2001 and 2004. I also have a Certificate in Ancient Greek from Birkbeck College, University of London. I graduated from my three-year Alexander Technique professional training (MSTAT) in March 2012.
- What kind of experience do you have?
- I have six years' experience of tutoring, teaching children and adults. I also have experience of designing, delivering and assessing training in the voluntary sector, during my time working for charities. I have worked with Surestart, as well as working as an academic mentor in a sixth-form college. I qualified as a teacher of Alexander Technique in March 2012 and now teach Alexander one-to-one and in groups, while continuing with academic tutoring.
- How much do you charge?
- In North-West and Central Coventry I normally charge £25 per hour for academic tutoring. If I travel to other parts of Coventry or Warwickshire fees are higher and I may need to charge for travel time - please ask for details.
For Alexander Technique, lessons cost between £25 and £50 depending on location and length of lesson - please enquire.
- Where do you teach?
- I teach in students' homes. I am normally able to travel within Coventry and may be able to come to Nuneaton and Bedworth, Kenilworth, Leamington, Rugby and surrounding areas - fees increase for locations outside Coventry.
For Alexander Technique, I teach at the Park Practice in Coventry, Neal's Yard Remedies in Leamington and also run groups at the Friends' Meeting House, Coventry.

- Weekdays and Saturdays, day and some evenings, term and holidays.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?

- 11+, 13+ (English), GCSE, AS level, A level, Special Papers, University exams
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

- Member STAT (Society of Teachers of the Alexander Technique)
- Where and with whom did you train?
- I studied for my first degree at Clare College, University of Cambridge, with Dr Fred Parker and Dr Tamara Follini. I trained as a teacher of the Alexander Technique with Refia Sacks at the London School of Alexander Technique and Training.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
- Currently I am working with a number of children towards the 11+. The issues I'm addressing vary from child to child - with one, her concentration is an issue, as is her ability at Maths; another is bright but has English as a second language and needs help to extend her vocabulary. I recently taught a twelve-year old who was temporarily out of school, working particularly on Shakespeare, which would have been the set text had she been able to attend lessons. Another current pupil is a bright GCSE candidate, who wants to extend her work towards an A*. I always enjoy the range of students I have.
For Alexander Technique, I am teaching a variety of students: a yoga teacher who would like to incorporate the Alexander insights into her yoga practice and teaching, a young actor, a number of elderly people who want to learn to ease aches and pains and relax, a triathlete, an A-level student... I love working with all the different experiences and needs people bring to learning the Alexander work.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
- I aim to make tutoring fun, interesting and challenging. I like the range of students that I teach, from primary school through to university and above, and always enjoy finding out what will make a subject click for the individual I'm working with. I'm patient, friendly and flexible in my approach - though I'm also challenging when that's needed. I love my subjects and love seeing them come alive for the students I work with.
