Whilst working in the creative industries I wrote music reviews and web articles which were published weekly on online platforms. Whilst I studied for my undergraduate degree I was also involved in the collaborative anthology of writings about the history of the city of Brighton which was published in 2012 and available through Queenspark Books, entitled: Brighton: The Graphic Novel.
English is my passion and I have spent the past seven years immersing myself in the written word in professional and academic pursuit. Over the past four years I have wanted to share my passion and help others to develop their skills in the English language. I feel that due to my academic achievements and experience in teaching literacy and ESOL in a range of contexts and levels I have demonstrated why I am the perfect tutor for you!
I have nearly 5 years of experience in tutoring and in 2018 I completed a PGCE at UCL. I was a trainee teacher working in colleges around Hertfordshire (North Hertfordshire College) and London (Camden Working Men’s College and Hackney Community College). In these placements I worked with large groups of literacy and ESOL learners from diverse backgrounds at a range of ability levels.
For the past four years I have run my own business privately tutoring students aged from six years (Key Stage 1 English) up to eighteen years of age (English Language A-Level) and even mature students (Open University courses). Prior to undertaking a PGCE I graduated in 2017 with a Masters Degree with Merit from Brunel University in Creative Writing.
After graduating from the University of Brighton in 2011 with an Upper Second Class Bachelor’s Degree in English and Media I worked for five years in a range of marketing and copywriting related roles, liaising with clients from various agencies in the hospitality and music industries, where I gained a professional style of writing in different contexts.
