About me

Hi, I'm a former high school teacher and university adviser of many years with years of experience teaching teenagers English literature, ESL, EFL, and Latin, and helping them achieve their college ambitions. I currently work at Edinburgh University in admissions and hope to get back into teaching and helping young people. Whether you need coaching with your uni applications, or tuition in any of these subject areas, I can help you realise your potential.
