Over the years I have taught thousands of young people all over the UK. The question I now ask myself is – does education have a heart? There has been a huge rise in mental illness amongst young people as examinations are made tougher and assessment replaces creativity and originality of thought. I think you can have both – creativity and academic excellence. My aim through Goddesse Education is to put the heart back into education.
I am a specialist English teacher with over 14 years’ experience of teaching GCSE and A-level in private and state schools and in colleges of FE. I have also been an external GCSE English examiner for 8 years and can share secrets and tips to boost confidence to pass GCSE.

As a single parent with two grown up sons I know how difficult parenting can be. That's why I am also offering a consultancy service so that you can get valuable advice on how to talk to schools when you are not happy.
I have the academic knowledge. But I also have the heart. I get to know my students well and mark and assess work in between sessions. I want to inspire them and be an authentic role model – I’ve failed hugely just as much as I’ve succeeded on a world stage. As a survivor I tell my students that failure taught me more about myself than success. I’m living proof that it’s not failure that is important – it’s our attitude to it. It’s our self-belief and resilience.
I look forward to meeting you.
