Dedicated, Friendly, and Rigorous Tutor

I am an Oxford and KCL graduate with three years tutoring experience. I pride myself in being really approachable and friendly, while also motivating my students to achieve as much as possible through the time we spend together. I get a huge amount of satisfaction watching a student improve and develop what we've learnt together into independent confidence.

Working with my past tutees, we have managed to get them into their number one school of choice, achieve top marks in their end of year school tests, and in the most recent set of public examinations, exceed early expectations with a 9 in IGCSE English Literature.

A little bit about me: for my secondary schooling I went to Dulwich College, where I received 10A*s at GCSE and then 3 A*s at A Level. I went on to study English Literature and Language at the University of Oxford and achieved a First Class BA degree, before reading for a MA in Film Studies at King's College London. I was awarded a Distinction and the Best Postgraduate Dissertation Prize.

Alongside my tutoring work I am a screenwriter and film director. My films have screened and won awards at film festivals, including London and the Berlinale, as well as being broadcast on the BBC. My film work has been an incredibly useful background to bring to my tutoring. Many of the skills I teach are essential to the work I do in film; being able to demonstrate the exciting real life application of analytical skills, linguistic dexterity and focus to a disinterested or struggling student has been an excellent source of motivation and inspiration in my work.
