I have a degree in English and Drama and a PGCE. I have always enjoyed working with young people and sharing my passion for the language and assisting them in reaching their full potential. I have experience of working with young people who are dyslexic or experience challenges of many types in school, with a particular emphasis on coping with public examinations.
I am in possession of a current CRB Check and completed a Safeguarding Assessment.
