As an experienced academic writer and copywriter, I will help your passion and personality shine in your writing. We'll make sure you leave each lesson with a firmer grasp of clarity and style, so you can see your progress on the page and apply the tips to all your writing independently.
I like to start with known territory, by giving you time and space to tell me what you love and hate about your subject, the way it's taught and what changes you're ready to make. Then, together, we find the words and style to bring your message to the page and audience.
I have been a freelance writer, director and teacher of communication and performance since 2007. Whether you're writing your first essay or speech, preparing for an important interview or audition, facing a fear of speaking in public or developing your passion for sharing the written word, I will help you be the best communicator and performer you can be.

At the age of 4 my daughter suffered allergies and eczema, and used to get agitated and be very apprehensive. After starting Speech and Drama, she is very confident, never shy to ask anything in class or at home, can approach her peers with ease, start a conversation readily, make new friends quickly. She excelled in her confidence and skills and was chosen for voiceover: animation and radio. She can interpret the text, read and speak as if the scene is happening in front of you.
Thank you so much for today's writing workshop. I thought it was excellent - incredibly helpful. The exercise was brilliant! When leading a group, you did the job of a good leader; you held the space really well, kept calm when there was any hint of over-dominance from one or other person, stuck with your programme.
