Teaching Experience:

James has had a passion for teaching for over 9 years, starting at the Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre in Guildford, where he taught as an Assistant Leader. He went on to set up his own youth theatre in Dorking for fellow students at his school. After four years of training at two of London's top drama schools, James set up Big Bold Youth, a not-for-profit organisation with the aim of creating platform for young people to enjoy drama that is both affordable and accessible. Since then, the company has run various workshops across the country, and now run two performing art schools in Surrey and Buckinghamshire. James began teaching privately, both one-to-one and group sessions, in 2016 and over the last two years, has taught more than 85 regular students.

Teaching Approach:

James tailors each lesson depending on a student’s personal learning style and specific needs. Whatever level of experience, James enjoys helping student's reach their potential and likes them to walk away after each lesson with a feeling of accomplishment. Before a student's first lesson, James likes to find out a little bit about their experience, their aims and goals which allow him to create a personalised plan for their initial session. He can also provide reports for parents every quarter with regards to student’s progress.
