Ingrid did her undergraduate studies at Cambridge and her doctorate in French Literature at Oxford. She held academic positions at Oxford, London (Queen Mary), Paris (ENS) and Sydney University.
Ingrid lectured at Cambridge for four years, between 2000 and 2004. She also worked as an education and leadership consultant for The Key, a company providing leadership and management support and coaching for school staff. She has experience of preparing students for Oxbridge interviews, with a 50% success rate.
Ingrid is interested in cinema, theatre and psychoanalysis and does some creative writing in her spare time.
By the time I left Ingrid I felt as though she really understood how I think and learn. The lessons were always so much fun and conversation led me into avenues of thought I never would have thought myself capable of; they became a highlight of my week. My place at Cambridge owes a lot to her experience and her teaching.

Ingrid has been an inspiration for my son who was studying for A level French. She gave him confidence, challenged him and most of all made him believe in himself. He went on to achieve fantastic results in his final exams this year. This would not have been possible without Ingrid's guidance.'
