Personal Description:

I hold a full-scholarship academic PhD in English Drama and an MFA with Distinction in Shakespeare from the University of Exeter, as well as a first Class BA in Theatre from the University of British Columbia. I have published scholarly articles. Additionally, I have received relevant certifications in Teaching English as a Second Language and in radio presenting (and a slightly less relevant one in stage combat!).

I am a professional actor with experience in all media including the West End, and am a founding member of Hotspur Theatre Company. Additionally, I have professional experience as a playwright, theatre director, and teacher.

Tutoring Experience:

From nursery school students to 16-18-year-olds, and undergraduates at the Universities of Exeter, Bath Spa, and Cumbria to postgraduates at the LAMDA drama school, I have taught students at almost every level. I have also coached adult professionals.

My key tutoring subjects are English, Drama, Shakespeare, English as a Foreign Language, Elocution, Voice and Speech, Public Speaking, Acting, and Research and Academic Writing. I look forward to helping you to achieve your best results!

Tutoring Approach:

All students are different, and therefore I vary my approach student-to-student. That said, my core approach includes my experience in drama, and I will often use play scripts as texts to analyse, or for language-building exercises and conversational scenarios. I have a substantial research and essay-writing background as well, so can offer useful insights into students' written work.
