Amy’s naturally empathetic and lively nature has made her a successful tutor with children and young adults (KS1 to A-Level) since 2013. She has helped students surpass their predicted grades by encouraging a creative learning process that plays to their individual strengths and interests.
Amy has an impressive academic record, with straight A grades at A-Level and a BA (Hons) in English Literature and Theatre Studies from the University of Leeds. She has since trained as an actor at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and has worked nationally, internationally and in the West End over the last four years. At Bedford High School she excelled in both school office, as Deputy Head Girl, and on the sports field, representing Bedfordshire and The Midlands in Hockey and Lacrosse respectively. She continues to enjoy outdoor pursuits and loves swapping the hustle and bustle of London for blue skies and green hills whenever she can.
Her teaching approach is based on understanding and encouragement, helping students gain confidence in essay writing, exam technique and, more recently, the interview process for London’s top independent schools. As the eldest of four, Amy has a natural flair with young people and likes sharing her love of literature and theatre with them. Although the Arts are her specialist area, Amy also tutors Maths and Science up to 11+. Her success lies in her ability to encourage individuality and creative responses whilst working towards general enrichment, and all in a comfortable, light-hearted learning environment.
In her spare time Amy loves climbing hills, wild swimming and laughing with friends.

“Amy was a positive and creative tutor, she built an excellent rapport with her and particularly helped with developing her comprehension and creative writing, and with her reasoning skills. Amy was able to provide a lot of support in terms of exam and interview technique and outside reading my daughter could do. Having now received the results we are delighted that our daughter received four offers from independent schools including two scholarships. We are very grateful to Amy for supporting our daughter through this challenging period and for helping her achieve this excellent results.”
