Freya graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in English Literature. After University, she began tutoring students in English Language and Literature from 11+ to Degree level, and set up and ran a local art class for 5-7 year olds.
Freya has travelled Central America and Colombia teaching English to Spanish speakers, and wrote and taught an English language syllabus to the residents of Faneromeni refugee camp in Greece. She has also worked for an NGO teaching English to asylum seekers in the UK, and has written reports on novels with the potential for adaptation into screenplays for the BBC, as well as screenplays with the potential for development.
Freya also holds a BA in Fine Art and has spent the past few years building her art practice, as well as organising and participating in several exhibitions. Recently, Freya has been chosen to take part in Grayson Perry’s post-lockdown exhibition, and won third place in Sustainability First’s Art Prize. Her work will be published in a book following the prize: Building from the Corona Crisis Toward a Sustainable Future.
At university, Freya worked as a member of Oxford University’s Access team, spending a lot of time talking to students across the country about the opportunities available to them as well as building a really strong understanding of the University application process from public exams to specific entry exams.
Freya continues to teach because she feels it is endlessly fascinating getting to know each student’s particular learning process and working out the best way to enhance and expand on this in order that they reach their full potential. Her wide range of experience teaching as well as thinking about a variety of educational needs is something that she brings into her tutoring, ensuring that each student gets the fullest and most thoughtful attention.
