I'm a postgrad at King's, reading Anglo-Saxon Literature and Language, and have been a teacher for 13 years. Until recently I was the Higher Education director in a language school, where I specialized in training students for university. Now I do full-time private tutoring. I've got experience working with students of all abilities, and from lots of different backgrounds. I'm just as happy to take complete beginners as I am to take PhD's.
Lessons are available to cover any language need, including: IELTS, FCE, CAE, Speaking, Grammar, Academic English and mainstream English (GCSE, A-level).
I also offer courses in pronunciation. These help you to understand native speakers, and help native speakers understand you.
I have a BA and MA in English, and a CELTA teaching qualification, CRB, etc. I've written a grammar book, pronunciation courses and various academic reading and writing courses.

Postgrad literature. My text is the Old English poem Beowulf, which was written around 1300 years ago, and my main interest in the poem is in grammatical and lexical temporality. I'm very fortunate to be studying under professor Clare Lees.
