My specialist subjects are History of Art and English. My passion for art, culture and literature has directed my studies, my hobbies and even my career to date. My ability to ascertain exactly what excites and interests my pupils makes me a good tutor. I like to add a little bit of magic to my tutorials, whether this is in the form of visiting museums and galleries or initiating specific activities which appeal to particular pupils, it results in pupils feeling inspired and genuinely involved in the subject.
