Academic Tutor

Having been a teacher since well before the National Curriculum was in school, I have decades of experience ranging from teaching children to read to working mainly teaching English in the secondary sector. I have seen great changes in education and they continue to happen of course.

In the later stages of my career I have specialised in the teaching of literature with a particular focus on the literature of and about WW1 and also Shakespeare. I examine for AQA at A level and also moderate the Extended Project Qualification for AQA.

I also am a British Council Schools Ambassador and have experience of helping schools to attain International Schools Award. I have travelled widely and have particular interest in the education of girls in Pakistan where I was fortunate enough to be part of a long running partnership.

Poetry is also a passion and I run poetry workshops, an online YouTube poetry channel Wild Writing in the time of Corona and creative writing workshops for adults. I also am a champion for the organisation Poetry by Heart.

Some of my other interests are...

  • Writing poetry
  • Discovering old mine workings!
  • Geology
  • Fossils
  • Travel


  • Literacy
  • Creative Writing
  • Literary Analysis
  • Language Analysis
  • Poetic forms
  • Classroom Practice
