« I was dubious of Skype-tutoring at first but after 5 minutes with the very personable Duncan Alldridge my apprehensions disappeared! Duncan's lessons are well structured and I felt able to ask questions and at ease to make observations on my work. I felt very secure in Duncan's knowledge of the subject and he possessed a natural understanding of essential points to include in essays. Although I only had three sessions with Duncan before my AS I'll definitely be requesting more help next year! »

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am a very experienced teacher and have taught A Level Drama and Theatre for over 20 years. A large number of my students have gone on study at successfully at University and Drama Schools. I have been Head of Drama at Senacre Technology College, Maidstone, The Sylvia Young Theatre School, London and at most recently at Strode's 6th Form College, Egham, Surrey. I've also worked a marker/examiner at 'A' Level and as a moderator at GCSE. I have a very detailed knowledge of the exam requirements of the Drama and Theatre A level syllabus.

It's likely that you'll only need a few lessons with me if you are resitting in Jan/June or need some quick exam practice.

Duncan's support showed deeply when I re-did my written Drama AS. Due to his endless marking of mock exam questions, with a specific target given to improve each essay, and endless support, I achieved 100% in this exam. Every lesson is exciting with Duncan, as we explore the text in so many different ways. His knowledge in physical theatre and the 'actor' has meant that I have grown rapidly in my understanding of performance and the role of audience.

Duncan's love for theatre and his eagerness for others to succeed helped me pass the course. It is very important his students have a good understanding of the text before he explores the production. In studying the background of the writer and the different characters within the text I had the ability then to imagine different ways to direct and set the scenes of the production. Duncan gave me a sense of fulfillment; his experience allows him to plan exciting lessons which have really helped me achieve.
