Biography & Interests

Besides mentoring for Oppidan Education and my academic studies at Oxford, I am currently secretary of the Oxford University Polo Club and Ball President of the Somerville-Jesus Ball in 2019. I have also been working as a research intern in the Chemistry Research Laboratories in Oxford.

I am a very keen equestrian! I have ridden since I could walk, and have represented Great Britain several times at U18 level in dressage. At university, I learnt to play polo, and have represented the university at several high profile matches including Ladies Varsity and the Atlantic Cup against Havard and Yale. Besides this, I also play saxophone in a local band.

Experience & Approach

I became interested in mentoring in school, when I would sit and help my peers in free periods. In my final years at school, this lead to me to become a Mathematics mentor to younger pupils and once I left school, I continued to mentor my sister during her A-Levels. I always found mentoring incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. In terms of my experience, most recently I have worked with a boy at 13+ for the scholarship exams on maths & sciences. Previously I tutored a girl for her iGCSE edexcel maths and sciences. 


"Dear Lily, just to say that [my son] passed his exams well. Most importantly, he was happy and relaxed in the days of the exams, which was great to see. Many thanks for the care and enthusiasm you gave him." Mother of 13+ boy, July 2018
