Biography & Interests

Besides mentoring for Oppidan Education and my academic studies at Oxford, I really enjoy organising events and have worked on several Oxford balls, including being President of the Somerville-Jesus Ball in May 2019. I am a keen equestrian and have represented Great Britain several times at U18 level in dressage, and am aiming to do so again at U25 level. At university, I learnt to play polo and I have represented the university at several high profile matches in the U.K. and abroad. I also love to play clarinet and saxophone, and have been a member of several Jazz and R&B bands.

Experience & Approach

I became interested in mentoring at school, when I would sit and help my peers in free periods and once I left school, I continued to mentor my sister during her A-Levels. I always found mentoring incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. Since joining Oppidan in June 2018, I have helped and am currently helping several clients working towards GCSEs, specifically mentoring them in Sciences and Maths. I have also helped clients with 13+ and 16+ entrance exams & interviews.
