Comedian and Cambridge graduate offering tuition in English, drama and creative writing.

Methodology

A Cambridge graduate with degrees in Classics, English and Theatre Studies, I also have years of experience as a fine art dealer, filmmaker, writer and stand up comic. I can offer help with most arts subjects up to A-level. I teach through conversation.

Experience

Though not a QT, I have assisted in special schools, drama departments and one-on-one tutoring. Along with my degrees, I have life experience, a GSOH and a deep love for the arts. For me, academic success depended on developing self-esteem. Expect positive feedback.
