Personal Message
I'm a very experienced and approachable tutor with huge passion for my subjects. I have a Literature BA from Cambridge and an MA in Creative Writing. I love working with students, whether for Primary, GCSE, A Level or University.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
My background is in English literature and writing. I studied English Literature through to Bachelors degree level at Cambridge and then took a Masters in Scriptwriting (involving storytelling, creative writing etc) and I'm a writer myself, so I primarily focus on English. I'm familiar with the 11+ requirements and GCSE and A Level syllabus. I also teach essay writing, as I know this can be an area where students can lack confidence at any age and in any subject. For younger students, particularly those preparing for the 11+, I also teach Maths.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a BA in English Literature from Cambridge University (upper second class, 2:1) and a Masters with Distinction in Scriptwriting (for Film). I studied Maths and Art to A Level.
What kind of experience do you have?
I've over five years experience, tutoring students of all ages from primary school to post-graduate.
How much do you charge?
I generally charge £45 per hour.
Where do you teach?
I'm generally based around Crouch End , Finsbury Park, Archway and Muswell Hill. Usually, I come to your home, but in some circumstances, if easier, I teach in a cafe or public library.
When are you available?
I am very flexible and can tutor any time on weekdays and during school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
For English, I teach all ages from Key Stage 2 through to university and adult education. The best thing to do is get in touch with me and we can have a chat about your individual needs.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
11+
GCSE English
AS and A Level English
Undergraduate and Postgraduate degrees in any subject where essay writing is required
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I am fully DBS/CRB checked
Tell me about some of your current students.
I currently tutor a wide range of students. I have several families preparing their children for the 11+ exam a year or so in advance. I teach them English and sometimes Maths, focusing particularly on Creative writing and the comprehension and grammar exercises likely to come up in the 11+ exam.

I have a several key stage three students as well as GCSE students studying AQA poetry and literature texts.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am very easy-going and approachable, and in my tutoring sessions, no question is wrong or stupid. I aim to help you play to your strengths and hopefully help you find the fun and interest in your work.
