English is the subject that I, without question, most passionate about (it's the subject I studied for my degree!). I really enjoy exploring the subject with pupils, and strongly believe that a tutor's role is not only to teach the subject, by to find a way of igniting individual student's own passion and interest for literature. As well as being a passionate believer in the importance of studying English, I am also highly conversant with technical grammatical terms and phonetics.
Hi, I'm a dedicated, rigorous and friendly tutor with a degree in English from the University of Cambridge and 10 years of extensive experience of teaching. After leaving university, I trained as an actor at LAMDA, one of the UK's leading drama schools, and continue to work as a professional actor. I have performed at the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare's Globe (as well as in the west end and on tour throughout the UK) and have appeared on both television and film.
I'm especially passionate about English literature. As well as guiding you through the curriculum, I want to encourage you to explore your own enthusiasm and intellectual curiosity for the subject. I enjoy tutoring this subject at all levels - whether it be preparing a student for their GCSE, for A Level, or for the Oxbridge admissions process.
In addition, I have extensive experience of preparing younger students for 11+ entrance exams, tutoring them in English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Finally, as professional actor, I am well positioned to offer Drama tuition, as well as more general coaching for public speaking - whilst working with the RSC, I also led workshops as an educational practitioner, exploring Shakespeare's plays with children across the UK between the ages of 6-15.
I make a point of keeping up to date with the relevant examination board rubric in order to ensure that sessions are geared towards obtaining the best results on the day.
As an actor and musician, I have a deep affection for the arts in general and enjoy nothing more than sharing this with others. My hobbies include playing the guitar, going to the cinema/theatre, watching cricket, and collecting LPs. Please do contact me if you'd like to discuss anything - I look forward to hearing from you!
PLEASE NOTE: Lesson times listed are intended as a rough guide - please do contact me if you don't see your desired time-slot, and I will always try to be accommodating if I can.
