About me

I am an experienced teacher of English Literature and Language, with expertise in creative writing, Shakespearean tragedy and a passion for social, political protest writing. I have years of experience in exam preparation and marking for both GCSE and A Level, across various exam boards. As Head of KS3 English at Fort Pitt Grammar School, I developed the Year 7/8/9 curriculum, focusing on raising reading age, offering breadth and variety in literature and transitioning to GCSE . At GCSE, working predominantly in a grammar setting, I specialised in stretch and challenge for high achievers as well as structured and tailored support for students struggling with English. Each year, I have gained highly successful GCSE results, with 100% 4-9 and over 65% achieving 7-9. I strive to support students in reaching their potential by creating an open, personal environment. Students are encouraged to actively engage with and lead their sessions and assess and reflect regularly, to build on and secure their skills.
