Personal Description:

I am a recent Cambridge graduate with a 2:1 BA Degree in Education with Drama and English Literature.

I have experience working in two separate schools in a specialised teaching assistant role. Supporting, through a one on one relationship, two boys from KS2 (7-10 year olds) who both had a statement of special educational needs. One of these pupils was diagnosed as autistic.

I have a background in acting and have performed in the first cast of Billy Elliot the Musical as well as productions at the National Theatre, The Globe Theatre and The Rose Theatre. Since graduating I`ve been pursuing a career as a theatre director and an actor and am also hoping to teach.

Throughout my degree I explored the development of dramatic literature in its context, drama in production as well as four different disciplines of education- history, philosophy, sociology and psychology. In my final year I completed a Research and Investigation Project on the sociology of eduction for which I received a first class mark.

I am a dedicated, focused and fun individual who will commit wholeheartedly to providing engaging tutoring sessions for anyone of any ability.

These sessions are brilliant opportunities to delve further into aspects of work that might have been missed in the classroom, to extend a tutee`s knowledge in something that he or she is particularly interested in, to help with examination preparation and also to hopefully inspire and have fun.

Tutoring Experience:

My background as a tutor are in subjects such as English, History and Drama.

I have experience working in two separate schools in a specialised teaching assistant role. Supporting, through a one on one relationship, two boys from KS2 (7-10 year olds) who both had a statement of special educational needs. One of these pupils was diagnosed as autistic.

I run weekly workshops at Jackson`s Lane Theatre as their Specialist Artist. This involves working with two separate groups (ages from 8-12 and 12-18) in developing a theatrical showcase for the end of March.

At sixth form I was part of a mentoring scheme whereby I would help those from younger years with English, Drama and History.

In the Easter breaks at Cambridge I ran week long workshops for Shakespeare Students at Institut Catholique d'Études Supérieures in La Roche-sur-Yon, France.

In the summer as part of a university theatre tour I led drama workshops down the East Coast of America to college and university students.

Studying Education at Degree Level has given me great knowledge of the complexities of teaching and how to best engage and enliven a student.

Tutoring Approach:

In the initial session I would make sure I had a firm understanding about the needs and concerns of the tutee and the tutee's parents or guardians and then make sure I structure my lessons accordingly. What gaps need to be filled? What areas can I expand upon that the tutee might not have had the time to focus on at school? Are there any over-arching problems that need addressing? Throughout my time tutoring I would then make sure I was complementing rather than contradicting what is taught at school.

My sessions would differ depending on what most engages the tutee and what is of most help to him or her. They could be highly structured (with aims and objectives, exercises, recaps and homework tasks) or more free and exploratory where we are, for example, led by discussion. I would be considerate and understanding, maintaining a firm belief that any problems with work can be overcome with perseverance.

I would make sure my lessons were fun as well as engaging. The last thing I would want is my tutee to be disengaged and I would try hard to keep them excited and enlivened throughout. This might mean shaking things up and trying new ways of working if needs be. To follow one ridged approach to teaching is problematic and I'd want both of us to enjoy our sessions as much as possible.

These sessions are brilliant opportunities to delve further into aspects of work that might have been missed in the classroom, to extend a tutee's knowledge in something that he or she is particularly interested in, to help with examination preparation and also to hopefully inspire and have fun.
