Personal Description:

I am a graduate of the University of Bristol, where I studied English Literature alongside founding a theatre company and writing/performing in a number of plays across the country. I have also just graduated from a 2 year post graduate degree in Professional Acting at LAMDA, one of the world`s most prestigious drama schools. My enthusiasm for English, Drama and History helped me get the best possible grades at school, and I have used my knowledge and interest in the subjects constantly in my adult life. I have loved and would love to continue to share the insights I have gained to help current students jump through the less exciting academic hoops more easily. That way, they can relax and find something in their topics to be genuinely enthusiastic about amidst the seemingly endless avalanche of homework and exams.

Tutoring Experience:

I have interned and volunteered at youth theatres in the UK and the US, and have helped several younger members of my family with their essay subjects during exam season. I have professionally tutored A level History, English and Drama. I also tutored some year 9s in History as part of a mentoring scheme whilst I was at school.
Outside of direct teaching, I have directed a number of short and full length plays which involved working with groups and with individuals on their performances and interpretations of the various texts. I was also Vice-President of one of Bristol's leading drama societies and part of the mentor scheme for younger English students as they began their University careers.

Tutoring Approach:

What I think is key is getting a clear overview of what an examiner is looking to see in an essay; what skills you need to display and how these can be shown clearly in the way that you write. Having an exam strategy in place gives us the breathing space to work out what you, the tutee, are interested in or can find interest in as we go along, within the subject; these are the parts of your essay which will be the most interesting to write and to read. Once we have found that we can use it as a starting point to branch out into other aspects of the subject, as a way of remembering important facts or how 'structure', for example, may not be the most exciting thing to learn about, but how it enhances and informs the more obvious and fun parts like 'character' or 'story'.
