About the lesson

I have a particular gift of helping children understand text. Through exciting reading techniques and character analysis, I bring to life, what can sometimes seem to a child at first, a dusty old book, in to a relevant, living story with reference points that help them understand the themes and character developments. With my experience on BBC Radio 4 as major narrater for 'Poetry Please' I am also gifted with teaching poetry and my own excitement and empathy for our great works of literature rubs off on my students too.

About Daniel

Hi, my names Dan, I currently teach English to Key Stage 3 and 4 nurture group classes, (ages 11-16) in a state school in Kingsbury, London.

Alongside my teaching, I have a packed schedule tutoring English Language, Literature, Drama and Public Speaking.

Before teaching, I spent over two decades as an actor, with leading roles in London West End Theatre shows, TV, Film and Radio, winning awards for my performances on BBC Radio 4.

The reason I mention my acting experience is that it gives me an in-depth understanding of many of the texts on the curriculum, along with a genuine passion for language and textual analysis.

I adore my work with children and I finish most of my online sessions with a big smile on my face, as I really feel it is my calling to improve young lives and empower young people's prospects of success. I tutor children of all ages, including primary and secondary/high school

My lessons are a combination of grammar/creative/persuasive/journalistic writing exercises, analysis of texts from the curriculum, essay technique, public speaking techniques and as many reading-out-loud, confidence building exercises as possible!

My experience teaching public speaking all around the world to both students and major corporations such as Vodaphone and EE means I can really help when it comes to tutoring Public Speaking modules, so with the current curriculum as it is, I am of great assistance to English students and have a great success rate when it comes to achieving the desired results for students preparing for drama school auditions and LAMDA exams.

For free revision content, please watch my youtube channel 'English Lit Up', where I bring to life the English curriculum, through Music, Rap and Drama, helping students to analyse and memorise plots and quotes in a fun and catchy way.

I live in North London with my wife and two smashing little girls.

Please do get in touch. I am happy to offer an initial 30 minute lesson, free of charge, so that you can get to know me first and feel secure in the knowledge that you are in good hands!

I look forward to hearing from you.
