I am a graduate student currently studying at Goldsmiths for an M.A. in Creative and Life Writing. I have a B.A. in English Literature from the University of East Anglia, as well as an N.C.T.J. in Multimedia Journalism. I have an absolute passion for literature and would love to give those who need some extra support with the subject an added boost! I have also worked as a journalist, legal researcher and professional actor and hold two A*’s (English Literature, Drama) and one A (History) at A Level. Most recently I worked at the Victoria and Albert Museum, South Kensington.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Warm, student-led and discussion based. I believe the best way to learn about literature is to engage the student in the text by discussing various themes and characters. Some texts can often seem daunting, but I often find breaking it down to it's simplest form is the best way to let the student understand it's core, and then build upon this.

What qualifications do you have?

M.A. Creative & Life Writing, Goldsmiths University London (set to graduate August 2022). B.A. English Literature, University of East Anglia, Norwich (2015).

Testimonial: "Lucy was able to give Madeline the confidence she needed to not panic when sitting her English GCSE's and achieve an A in both after being predicted a B. She took the time to earn Madeline's trust and give her fantastic guidelines in approaching the text modules and in recommending further reading" Caroline, Beaconsfield.

What is your personal message to students?

I want you to embrace literature and keep an open mind! You do not have to fall in love with it, but my goal is for each student to notice and engage with the potential an understanding of the written word gives us. For GCSE in particular, this is also about language and grammar.
