First-class Cambridge graduate tutoring English from 11+ to degree level based in Edinburgh

Methodology

While I'm happy to discuss my approach on a case-by-case basis, I broadly focus on two key areas:

- Providing a full and structured understanding of the subject in hand, tailored to the examination or syllabus being studied.
- Broader support and a wider view of the subject in hand: including further area knowledge, essay writing skills and (where required, for example, for students who are seeking Oxbridge entrance), interview coaching.

Background

I'm a freelance and screenwriter based in Edinburgh (I have worked with ITV, Channel 4 and Ridley Scott's Production company Scott Free). I graduated from Cambridge with a first-class degree in English, and I have over the last ten years I have tutored students at various levels for English and History.

I can provide tutoring in English, History and Media Studies to A-level, and English at degree level. I can also provide Oxbridge admissions coaching for those students who wish to apply to Oxford or Cambridge.

I'm willing to travel within Edinburgh or undertake Skype tutoring. For tutoring engagements further afield, I may charge travel costs by agreement.
