What do I teach?

As a book-worm with a background in communications and publishing (both for independent companies and large organisations such as Oxford University Press), I love teaching English.

I currently work with a wide variety of students from primary (often preparing for 11+ exams) to GCSE and A Level studies in both English Literature and Language. I have also helped many adult learners improve their writing and speaking skills – either with English as a Foreign Language or general proofreading.

Current texts include:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Into the Wild, Streetcar Named Desire, Handmaid’s Tale, Lord of the Flies, The Pearl, An Inspector Calls, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, A Christmas Carol – as well as English as a Foreign Language, and 11+ Preparations.
