Over twenty-four years, I have taught at Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard, winning numerous awards. I have taught everything from Key Stage 1 to postdoctoral level and adult learning. I am an academic researcher and education and policy consultant by trade, specialising in ways to utilise teaching scenarios to build confidence in individuals and groups, to help people believe in themselves, and to support communities in their education journeys.
I'm grateful to have a gift for helping people believe in themselves and their work, and I teach methodologies for coping with study stress and ensuring a work-life balance when learning. I've worked with all ages and backgrounds, and always help others excel beyond their wildest dreams, having coached numerous individuals from disadvantaged or medically problematic backgrounds into magnificent positions at Oxbridge and Ivy League universities, and in the private sector.
"I cannot thank you enough for all the inspiration you gave me, and all the tips on how to prioritise my learning, and to keep it bite-size. The little tricks of the trade you taught me to keep nerves at bay were awesome - I still use them! You're not just a teacher, you're a life coach!"

I have 30 years experience teaching in Higher Education and have tutored thousands of students from GCSE level to PhD students in Economics and Business Administration. I am retired from full-time academic life, but remain very active. Having risen to a senior level in university management, where I was responsible for admissions decisions at the University of Liverpool, I am very happy to return to teaching, which I am passionate about.
There are two key pillars of my approach. The first is that I set no false limits to what can be achieved. Our ability is not fixed; like our physical fitness, we can improve how well our brain works through practice. The second is that everyone is an individual, so I focus on what each person needs and what helps them to learn more effectively. I have vast experience of supporting students at all levels from GCSE up to PhD. I am very patient and build people's abilities and their self-confidence.
