I have undertaken English teaching and training in Schools (Primary and Secondary) and in the University Sector (to Postgraduate level) over a period of twenty-five years. During that period I have worked with very gifted students as well as children and adults who have needed special support in order to reach their full potential.

Intensive Summer and weekend tuition is offered in 2, 4, or 6 hour blocks.

Fully authorised CRB Police Check available for inspection.

I hold degrees from the University of St Andrews (MA English Language and Literature) and the University of Leeds (PhD)


My specialist areas are English Language and Literature; Media and Communications; Study, Exam and Revision Skills; 11+ Exams ; Essay writing and Dissertations, report proof-reading.

My teaching is always adapted to the specific needs of the learner and is informed by critical and creative strategies that have a proven track record.

I work in partnership with potential students in order to identify the learner's most urgent needs and and the goals to be achieved.

Together we address issues of motivation and the acquisition of key subject study skills.

This process builds on creative strategies for self-improvement which leads to enhanced enjoyment and success.
