I am a passionate and enthusiastic teacher of literature and English. I have a wealth of experience (22 years and counting) teaching both in London and abroad to a wide range of age groups. In my first ten years of teaching, I specialised in teaching the English and Literature courses of study to girls from Years 8-12 in Perth, Australia. For the past 12 years, I have been teaching English at a London Prep school, nurturing the education of boys in Years 6-8 as they progress towards Common Entrance, Scholarship and Day School Entrance exams. I love to inspire a love of literature in my students and to help them become independent and critical thinkers. Helping young people to fulfil their potential and to be able to use language expressively, and powerfully is the most rewarding part of my role.
