Meredith's biography

Meredith studied BA Classics at the University of Oxford and an MA in Shakespeare Studies at King’s College London and the Globe. After eight years of teaching secondary English Language & Literature and Latin in the classroom, she is currently researching for a PhD in English & Classics at King’s College London. A passionate educator, she is keen to continue supporting students from KS3 to KS5 whilst pursuing her own academic studies.

As IB Pastoral Lead (Head of Year 12 and then Year 13) with three years of IB English Diploma teaching experience in her most recent school and three years teaching English Pre-U in a central London Sixth Form before that, she has a wealth of expertise engaging and educating 16-18 year-olds. This includes counselling and preparing them for university interviews and applications (especially for Oxbridge, but also in the US).

In addition, she has taught CIE English Literature & Language IGCSE for three years and is confident guiding students through other exam boards at KS4. Having taught internationally and in the UK, she prides herself on her inclusive and globally aware teaching style – whether online or teaching in person in central and south west London, her differentiated and exam-oriented approach has helped many students to success and a greater understanding of (and appreciation for) literature.

Alongside English, she has taught GCSE Latin (OCR) and tutored a student in Classical Civilisation. Whether in Classics or English, Meredith is happy to support secondary students both through exams and in their journey towards higher education.
