Personal Description:

Hi there!
My name is Damien , I am 31 years old right now. I have a passion for art, music, drama, and culture. I love to constantly learn new things, from a traditional recipe to a concept in astrophysics. I grew up always wanting to be a superhero, so I studied drama and acting in hopes that I could one day at least be one on screen, but as I studied and traveled I learned that the real heroes, were actually teachers, so in late 2012, that is the direction I chose. And so far it has not fallen short, teaching some of the best upcoming new actors to hit the screens. I have been a drama teacher for 8 years now, from starting in "container" school in the Transkei of the Eastern Cape to teaching in schools all over Johannesburg for Helen O'Grady Drama Academy. I now currently lecture Acting For Camera at CityVaristy in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, while also freelancing for film and acting. I enjoy teaching more than anything because it has a reward like no other: pride in your studnets progress.

Tutoring Experience:

2011-Humpty Dumpty Pre-School, Rosettenville (practical class application and design for my final year facilitatorship)
2012-Crab Bush Shcool Hogsback (drama teacher while working for Terra Khaya Backpackers as a volunteer)
2013- Spartan Highschool (Drama and English teacher)
2013-2015- Helen O'Grady Drama Academy (facilitator to Southern Johannesburg Branch manager)
2015-2016- Alberton Remedial School (geography, drama, arts and culture teacher, and aftercare facilitator)
2016-present- CityVarsity Braamfontein (Acting For Camera specialist, Live Performance, Voice, Contextual studies lecturer, and Online Staff Development Campus Champion)

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to all forms of teaching is firstly to have fun while doing it.
After years of teaching and experience, I have learned that the best way for students to retain information is for that information to be relatable, practical and enjoyable. Whether it be role play games around the characters of a book for the younger students, or coffee shop excursions for the older adults just looking for a bit more confidence in their day to day lives and interactions.
With this approach, I Hope to provide/fill a space that allows the student, optimal growth through practical exercises, immersive discussions, and some good ol' fun. I have taught from Grade R all the way to established adults who just wish to learn more and improve their skills. I am a flexible person with a diverse background of knowledge, I am always open to learning more and meeting new people.
