I believe in creating a combination teaching method built around each student. The key elements I focus on are accessibility, inclusivity, adaptability and effectivity, meaning that many of my methods can be both catered to any particular student, and then developed and evolved to be able to be applied to another individual or group. I am always learning and growing, just like my students!
I have just graduated from a Drama and English degree and write professionally for a number of publications. I have been teaching young people for years and have led workshops in a variety of subjects and topics. I have worked with a vast spectrum of students including SEN and non-English speaking.
STUDIED DRAMA AT QUEEN MARY UNIVERSITY OF LONDON, RECEIVING A FIRST-CLASS DRAMA BA (HONS) DEGREE
FRONT OF HOUSE PERFORMANCE TEAM MEMBER
The Savoy Theatre
October 2018 – March 2020
I worked for the front of house department at the acclaimed, central London theatre – The Savoy. My role can range from leading a team on a very busy theatre bar, helping patrons into a building, selling ice creams and programmes, supervising ticket sales, taking care of VIP guests in our ambassador’s lounge, and much more. I love the buzz and magic the theatre has to offer in all of its areas and roles and try my best every day to make each customers experience as successful and enjoyable as it can be.
A Younger Theatre
September 2019 – March 2020
I am a reviewer and writer for A Younger Theatre, a charity-run organisation that I write theatre, television and pop culture reviews for. I enjoy it immensely and having the chance to publish my written work professionally is brilliant. It has also enhanced my copywriting, shorthand, and PR skills as it has involved extensive editing of professional writing, as well as engaging in many press-related events.
Queen Mary University of London
July 2020 – October 2020
I most recently worked as an IT assistant at the Russell Group university, Queen Mary, in which I was responsible for resolving all any computer or software related problem faculty members may have throughout the university. My main responsibilities revolved around admission administration, accounts and passwords, registering staff and configuring Wi-Fi.
Working at this specialised SEN school in Kent, I experienced the full spectrum of the reality and joy of working in a special requirement student school, with my role being a classroom and teaching assistant to a variety of year groups. The differences between the children meant that I was able to engage with countless learning practices, and find out the ways in which each child responded to these in different circumstances. The main ages I worked with were KS1/2, and I was able to get an insight into the early learning that children in this environment may receive, and how this may differ from standard state education. It was the most challenging but rewarding role I have taken, and it has assured me of my desire to work with similar children again in the future.
PERFORMANCE TEAM MEMBER/FLOOR MANAGER
05/2020 – 09/2020
I was lucky enough to work at the acclaimed, independent Genesis cinema in East London. The role included hospitality, front of house, shift management, COVID precaution control and retail elements.
New Ash Green Pavilion
At my local rugby club in Kent I annually worked as bar and function staff team member. I am an experienced bar worker from pubs and bars so spend a lot of my time managing one of the two bars on my own. This is my favourite type of work as I love getting to know customers and getting more and more skilled in an area of work I thoroughly enjoy. I am responsible for opening and closing the building on occasions, setting up and closing down the bar, cashing up and providing excellent and swift service for up to 12 hours at a time.
BAR AND FRONT OF HOUSE STAFF
Wilton’s Music Hall
April 2018 – January 2019
DRAMA AND ARTS FACILITATOR
Walk Talk Performing Arts Registered Charity No.109146
May 2015 – September 2017
In this role I worked as a facilitator / youth leader with the junior academy at the charity, ‘Walk Tall’ based in Maidstone. This organisation aims to bring the drama and the arts into the lives of less advantaged/abled children outside of an educational context. I acted as an arts leader, with my main role revolving around teaching the children singing, dancing and acting, all leading towards an end of term performance. This role was exceptionally rewarding, and the bonds I made with the children will stay with me forever. The charity is based within a therapeutic practice context, so I was able to learn and execute new methods of working with children in the arts that would serve as a form of emotional relief as well as extra-curricular fun.
NANNY / CHILD CARER
As you can see from my resume, I have spent a lot of my working life with children, and believe it is an area I am naturally skilled in due to my maternal nature. I work with a nannying agency in which I am employed by multiple families to take care of their children, whether this be after school, while their parents are at work all day or just weekends. I have also done a large amount of non-agency babysitting for neighbours and family, all of which I enjoy deeply and have gained a lot of skills from and a sense of extreme responsibility that I never take lightly.

Starting 11+ preparation with Oscar
Estelle has been supporting my son with his English 11+ exam. She has a very friendly, approachable and professional manner and was very patient with my son. She is very reliable, communication with her was easy and swift, she listened to any feedback given and acted upon it. Her resources were appropriate for the content taught. I would recommend Estelle to anyone who needs support for their child's school work or exam preparation.
Estelle is brilliant at creating teaching methods that are adaptable across students and topics. Such good value for money as there are valuable lessons in all of her teaching!
Estelle got my two boys through their GCSEs in over ten subjects, moving them up 3 grades in English maths and science. She is professional and personal and I highly recommend her for all ages
