Amy’s naturally empathetic and friendly nature has made her a successful tutor with children and young adults (KS1 to A-Level) for 10 years. She has helped students surpass their predicted grades by encouraging a creative learning process that plays to individual strengths and interests. Her teaching approach focuses on the intrinsic value of education, whilst helping students gain confidence in the key skills of essay writing, exam technique and the interview process for London’s top independent schools.
As the eldest of four, Amy has a natural flair with young people and her success lies in her ability to create a fun and enriching learning environment.
Amy has a BA Honours in English Literature & Theatre Studies from the University of Leeds and trained as an actor at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. She has since worked extensively as both as an actor and a director. She is currently Resident Director for The Play That Goes Wrong in the West End, and in her spare time enjoys swimming and cooking.
