I am a graduate from the University of Cambridge and prior to this attended Repton School in rural Derbyshire where I gained straight As at A Level in Biology, Chemistry, Latin and Ancient Greek. Following graduation, I worked as an analyst in an investment bank for a number of years before taking up a teaching role at Wellington College.
I have thousands of hours teaching and tutoring experience across a range of subjects, levels and abilities. Despite my academic background being in Classics, I also have experience of tutoring the Sciences, History, Maths and English to GCSE level, as well as preparing students for entry into UK Independent Schools at 13+. I have worked with clients on a face-to-face basis and online in Canada, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Dubai.
My younger tutees have successfully gained places at Eton, Harrow, Wellington, Epsom, Charterhouse, Westminster as well as successful university applications to Oxford and Cambridge.
I am a highly committed, experienced and passionate educator who always strives to get the best from students. I believe that enjoyment and education should go hand-in-hand, and for that reason always seek to develop a positive, enjoyable and motivated learning environment for the students. Whether in a classroom or one-to-one, my teaching style always focuses on building the student’s confidence in their own ability to achieve results. I have two goals in my lessons, for them to be educational and enjoyable. If children can laugh whist learning and be inspired and engaged in what I have to teach them, then the lesson is a success.
