Long before I was a tutor, I was a writer. Creating new worlds gives me the insight to help others access their own creativity, to show them how every part of English Literature started life as a soft voice in the back of a writer’s mind or a picture yet to be described.

I started tutoring when I home educated my own children right through from KS2 to their GCSE years. Our home educating voyage was full of warmth and laughter, learning through enrichment, and nurturing talents – an approach I still use today.

I firmly believe English Language, Literature and Creative Writing should be accessible to all students, whether they are preparing for tests or enriching their educational experience. Together we can tease out the meaning and it might be different for each of us.

I am very keen on helping students develop their own way of doing things – there is no one-size-fits-all approach in my work. My own path to a degree started in night school when I studied A Levels during an intensive year when I also worked full-time. The resourcefulness I needed then gave me an alternative view on what can be achieved by each individual student. My job is done when a student no longer needs my help, even if they might still like it.
