Experience

Throughout my professional career, I have been teaching in secondary schools and in universities, in the UK and abroad (France, Spain, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Russia). I have been a university lecturer in Ancient Greek and Religious Studies since 1990 with extensive experience supporting non-native students at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. I have carried through numerous teaching posts as a private tutor at primary, secondary and tertiary level, all leading to improved grades and exam success.

I was the primary carer of a child with special learning needs (ASD and Dyslexia) until he became independent. In that capacity, I have experience of building and running a home-education programme, and of teaching and/or supervising the learning of key subjects up to GCSE and A level. I currently support students owith ASD, ADHD, dyslexia and mental health issues.

My pupils have been of all ages, from nursery to retirement and feedback has been consistently and warmly positive.
