Bridie is a graduate of Jesus College, Cambridge, with a degree in English Literature. She is a qualified secondary English teacher with four years’ experience and is confident with range of pupil needs, attitudes to learning, texts and examination boards. She began training with Teach First and then led a department, focusing on creating rigorous curriculum which would push pupils of all abilities to love English and achieve their best. She has been tutoring for five years for public English examinations, CE, 11 and 16 plus school entry, Oxbridge entry and more. Bridie believes strongly in the power of a positive relationship between tutee and tutor: it can ensure the transformation of an able, but under-confident, child into a confident and aspirational one and she so enjoys this process.
Bridie qualified to teach English in 2016, and holds a PGCE, QTS from Canterbury Christchurch University.

Bridie is a committed, hard-working and self-motivated person. She possesses a thorough understanding of her subject and is adept at building relationships quickly with adult and child learners. In our time working together, Bridie led the English department in building a broad and challenging curriculum and also taught A Level English to a high standard. She is extremely reliable and would be a fantastic addition to any team.
