2018                               Tutor, Holland Park Tuition

▪   English Literature and Language GCSE  – I have experience teaching exam preparation, technique, and essay structure. These exams are hard to prepare for; they are extremely technical, and the mark schemes offer little lee-way. My tutoring style helps students to learn the particular techniques required, and to develop an agile set of skills that can help them with any surprise question.
