Personal Description:

I am a tutor in English, Drama and Art & Craft. I have a BA Honours degree in Dramatic Arts from the University of Leeds (2:1), and I trained as an actor at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA). I acted for eight years in theatre, television, film and radio in UK and internationally. I'm currently completing my Masters in Creative and Life Writing at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Theatre roles include; Desdemona in Othello and Joan in Time and the Conways at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester; Sheila in An Inspector Calls, a tour of Australia; Roz in We Happy Few at the Gielgud Theatre, West End; Viola in Twelfth Night at the Northcott Theatre; and Eugenie in Vincent In Brixton, a Royal National Theatre tour.

Film and TV roles include; Ballet Shoes; Ian Fleming: Bondmaker; Henry VIII; England Expects; and Cry Babies for BBC Radio 4.

I studied Fine Art at CityLit in London, developing drawing, painting, printmaking and film work, and experimental drawing at the Oxfordshire Visual Arts Development Agency (OVADA). I attend workshops at the Drawing Room in London and The Wilson in Cheltenham.

I have also studied filmmaking at New York University where I made three short films.

Tutoring Experience:

My experience lies in tutoring English to students for the 7+ to 11+ entrance exams, and LAMDA Speech and Drama exams as well as helping students with communication skills.

I have worked as a Cover Supervisor, a teachers assistant and special educational needs assistant for Classroom Teachers in primary and secondary school across London.

My role as Head of Courses at the Oxford School of Drama gave me the experience of teaching acting, text, and audition technique on the foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

I was a cover teacher at RADA, and a LAMDA speech and drama teacher at Stageworks Studio in Cambridge.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage students to think creatively and critically. Students will develop new skills that will build their confidence and enable them to pass their entrance exams.

I was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of 13, which I believe aids my creative abilities. I have successfully worked with my dyslexia throughout my career and I understand the difficulties faced by students who have been similarly diagnosed.

I love supporting students to learn; I aim to develop an empathic and lively rapport with individuals.
