I'm an experienced and approachable tutor and I love working with students, whether for Primary and 11+, GCSE, A Level or University.

I have a Literature BA from Cambridge (Class 2:1) and an MA with Distinction in Script Writing (a type of Creative Writing), so I primarily teach English Literature.

I am well versed in 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, I teach Maths. I also tutor Fine Art up to GCSE, and Media Studies for GCSE and above.

I'm primarily based around Archway, Crouch End and Muswell Hill, but can tutor anywhere I can cycle to. Get in touch and let me know what would suit you.

I generally charge £40 per hour. If I have to travel particularly far I may charge an extra £5 for expenses.

I look forward to hearing from you!
