I am passionate about supporting and encouraging young people in education. I am dedicated, approachable and enthusiastic about my subject. I have worked in education for over 8 years, first as a librarian teaching study skills and helping students develop a love for reading, then as an English teacher. I teach both very high and low attaining groups, and know how to challenge every student to reach their full potential. I have taught the new specification 1-9 English GCSE to a very high attaining set and am keen to pass on my knowledge to new students.
