My Passion & How I Inspire

My approach is to create a comfortable and positive atmosphere in which the student can engage in their subject and feel confident in their work.

I treat each student as an individual and prepare each lesson extensively so I am able to remain flexible within my teaching methods.

I am passionate about the subjects I teach and I believe this helps engage the student, get them excited about their work and improve their academic performance.

My Experience

As a director I have experience working with children of all ages. My last short film had a cast of 8 teenage boys and 12 teenage girls. Directing is very similar to teaching – it’s about creating a comfortable environment in which the actors can do their best work, not be afraid to ask questions and trust I am there to support them.

My speciality is film studies. I attended the top film studies department in the country and one of the top film schools in the world.
