Teaching ethos:
I'm a strong believer in developing your personal view of texts and being able to enjoy literature for what it's worth. Thus, my lessons are discussion based, designed to extend your ideas and strengthen your textual understanding. I hate the idea of 'spoon-feeding', or writing out essays for students to memorise; with every student, I aim to help them hone their own set of skills and refine their work to achieve their goals.

I create lessons that target the syllabus dot points that you need help with while providing extensive practice questions from past papers and textbooks. I focus on an in-depth understanding of concepts, equipping you with the fundamentals of answering any exam question.
