Subjects I teach
Literacy & Numeracy 7/8+
English Literature A-Level
Theatre Studies A-Level
Acting Degree/Professional Level
I have taught at a range of age levels. I have taught 7/8 year olds either preparing for entrance exams for Kings College Wimbledon or a recently relocated student who needed help catching up with a new syllabus. I have taught English GCSE on the AQA Board. I have taught English Literature on both the AQA and OCR Boards. I have taught professional actors who need help with an upcoming audition.
At A-Level I achieved an A in English Lit/Lang, A in Theatre Studies, A in History and a B in General Studies. I have a 2:1 Ba (Hons) in English Literature from Durham University and a 2:1 in Professional Acting from LAMDA.
My Approach to Private Tuition
As I have taught over a range of ages I tend to make my tuition specifically tailored to the needs of each individual client. This can either mean a highly structured specifically goal based tuition course, or a flexible discussion based learning process. The central importance should be an emphasis on making the subject relevant, engaging and fun for the student, as without their total engagement it is difficult to achieve excellent results.
