Personal Description:

Based in East London, I am an English tutor and Screenwriter with a wealth of teaching experience. Having worked in a state comprehensive school in the Forest of Dean for 4 years (promoted to second in department in 18 months), I have gone on to privately tutor a range of pupils from 11+ to A-level, with excellent results - particularly in entrance exams to Independent Schools. In 2013, I received an MA at the prestigious National Film and Television School, and have gone on to write a number of short films that have received numerous awards, including a short animation that was the only UK short film in competition at the 66th Cannes Film Festival. I now combine my time writing and tutoring around London.

Tutoring Experience:

I worked as an English Teacher (teaching both Language and Literature) in a comprehensive school in the Forest of Dean, garnering excellent results at both Key Stage 3 (11-14) and GCSE. I was incredibly sad to leave the school, but resigned in December 2010 to take up an offer of a place at the National Film and Television School.

Tutoring Approach:

I think with one-to-one tutoring, the teacher has a fantastic opportunity to map-out an individualised plan of learning. Everything should evolve from the pupil's interests, skills and ability - and there should be clearly defined objectives. I also think that learning should be fun, and during my time in education, devised a number of different ways of delivering lessons - using a range of different teaching styles.
