Qualifications on file



I have a PhD in English Literature from King’s College London. I have been a teacher for a  few years giving me extensive experience in lecturing and delivering seminar style teaching to undergraduate and postgraduate students at King's College London.

I am a fully qualified and very experienced Secondary School teacher and i have a Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) in Secondary English with QTS.

I have been marking essays and examinations offering students advice on improving the strength of their argument, critical reading and analysis, and structural features.

I have taught English as a foreign language to non-native speakers abroad in Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam. This has given me valuable skills at increasing the conversational skills, vocabulary range, and correcting grammar, diction, and sentence construction in students of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.

I have volunteered in primary and secondary schools as a tutor, helping students with special needs and learning difficulties who are struggling with English. I am a naturally patient and open-minded teacher who ensures each lesson is tailor made to suit each student’s personal needs and learning motivations.

I have high standards in the hard work and respect I expect from my students. I am motivated by the progress my students make and am willing to adapt and improve my teaching strategies to help students achieve the academic success they deserve.

Every student brings with them their own personality and learning style and I bring individual learning strategies and resources in my toolbox.
