MY STUDENTS AND TEACHING STYLE
Every Student is different...
I have worked with 100´s of students over the years and the overwhelming similarity has been that every student is different. And so I have never taken a ´one size fits all´ with my students and the results have been absolute testament to the success of this approach.
The common denominator with all my classes has been the sense of fun , the great rapport we have had and how we have broken down some of the negative preceonceptions they might have about themselves or tutoring.
**Results speak for themselves...
TEFL: 85% of students have passed all PET, FCE, CAE, Proficiency on their first try. 100% of students have passed on their second.
100% of students found interview and presentation skills lessons either secured them a job or got them a second interview.
100% of students went up a level at the end of two terms.
11+ School with a usual 80% pass rate received a 96% passrate.
Drama: 100% of students got to final stages of Drama school auditions, 60% offered a place; RADA, CENTRAL, BOV, DRAMA CENTRE, EAST15 and more.
KS3/KS4 English & Drama: Tutored prviately in London, International schools in Madrid.
I am a kind, creative and experienced English and Drama teacher.
**Russell Group University 2:1 BA HONS and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama...
Whilst studying English Literature at a top Russell Group University - Sheffield, I tutored english essay writing skills and english as a foreign language.
After getting a 2:1, I then achieved a place at the world-renowned Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (Judy Dench, Laurence Olivier etc) where I completed a MA in Classical Acting.
Whilst studying and I taught drama for 6 years for Stagecoach and tutored GCSE Drama as well as help prepare students for their drama school auditions.
**Acting, Writing and the BBC
What separates me from a lot of other tutors is that I have first-hand professional experience as both an actor, voice over artist and writer for channel four.
I worked for BBC Drama as a script reader and professional actor for over ten years in London.
After successfully working as an actor in a wide-variety of Theatre companies including Kneehigh and The National Theatre I realised in my heart I was a teacher - I cared more about my students getting an audition, acing an exam or feeling more confident reading than I did my own achievements as an actor.
**TEFL, Working Abroad & The British Council...
So having always had a passion for travel I decided to complete my TEFL in Madrid and lived and worked out there for 4 years. As well as teaching the British National Curriculum I also ran a successful private tutoring business where I had over 30 students - from 5-50years old.
The British Cuncil and I worked together to set up a Summer Drama Programme and I ran this annually for my time in Madrid.
**Teach First & PGDDE...
I have tutored now for over 15 years but more consistently the last 5 years. Having returned to UK I applied for the highly esteemed Teach First and am now teaching Secondary English in a state school completing my PGDE via Bath Spa University.
Above everything I believe in kindness, equality and building people up in any situation...as well as having a keen sense of humour. I would never promise more than I could deliver in terms of progress and comitment as I believe in being somebody whose words match their actions.
