After graduating from Edinburgh University, I worked in a media agency for ten years across such clients as Apple, Virgin and Estee Lauder. In 2008 I decided to take a career break which lead me to teaching. I've enjoyed it so much I never looked back!

Four years ago, I started working with the Pronunciation Studio who trained me in phonemics and accent reduction. Since then I have worked with business clients in blue chip companies to help them communicate more clearly and confidently to their clients and colleagues.

IELTS preparation is a speciality of mine. Also, what used to be the standard requirement of around 6.5 has crept up over the last few years to 7 or even 7.5 as the top universities increasingly demand excellence from their applicants. Preparation is absolutely vital and I have achieved excellent results from those prepared to work hard.

In my spare time I am a stand-up comedian and have performed all over the UK, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

I fell into tutoring when offered some part-time tuition work, during my study of Linguistics and Spanish at St Catherine's College, Oxford. Roughly eight years later, tutoring has become my full-time profession, still with a focus on those two subjects, as well as university entrance to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities for a range of subjects. I am lucky to teach language and linguistics - two subjects which dovetail each other and continually provide new avenues for exploration. I have helped students improve their language grades at all levels, and achieve university offers from Oxbridge, Edinburgh, Bristol, and others. I take an informal but rigorous approach to tutoring, taking advantage of the personal, non-classroom relationship that tuition allows. I have a special (but rarely indulged!) interest in Old Norse and modern Icelandic.
