I am a 24 year old actor, orginally from Macclesfield, near Manchester, but have lived in London since 2011. I went to school in Macclesfield and studied A Levels in French, English Language and English Literature. I got A*s in all three subjects. I then moved to London to attend drama school, where I received a First Class BA Hons. Since graduating in 2014, I have been performed in plays at venues including the National Theatre and the Old Vic, and have been lucky enough to on a fantastically diverse range of projects.
I have spent time as a TA in various schools across London as part of a teaching agency. This work has included Primary, Secondary and SEN education, so has taught me a huge amount about working with children and young people of varying ages and abilities. I have done some one to work lesson support, and also taken larger groups in reading and art sessions.
I believe that it is hugely important to understand and respect the children who you are teaching, and above all - to enjoy their company! As well as teaching experience, I have done a large amount of work in childcare, and my experience with young people from different backgrounds means that I easily find natural connections with children. My profession is acting, and this requires a real openness and an excellent understanding of people and how their minds work. I believe that learning should be specific to the child in question, as not every mind responds to the same methods, so an ability to be flexible is hugely important. Above all, young people should be made to feel that learning is fun and exciting - not only will this motivate them but it will make the classes far more enjoyable for everyone involved!
