Personal Description:

My name is Melissa and I have a an English and Drama teacher and I live close to the city centre of Norwich. I studied drama at Manchester University, achieving a first class honours degree and a Masters Degree. I have an unfailing passion for all things drama and literature and love to share and encourage this in my students.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching drama for 20 years across many different educational settings, including further education colleges, youth theatres, prison and probation settings and within mental health. I studied to teach English as a foreign language in Istanbul, and taught abroad for a year. I have worked extensively as a supply teacher within secondary schools in Norfolk, teaching English and Drama. I currently work with the Inspiration Trust, teaching English key stage 3 and 4 and Drama key stage 3 up to A Level. I am able to offer private tuition to one or two students at a time in both English and drama. I am also able to offer private drama coaching in acting for students preparing for auditions or drama exams.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching English and Drama is through the text choices first and foremost. I believe that if a student enjoys the text and it is a story they relate to, then everything else will follow. My aim is to offer a student both an enjoyable and meaningful learning experience I can tailor the focus of sessions according to specific needs and will plan 6 week scheme which will provide opportunities to focus on particular areas of school or college work as needed.

I am able to either travel or teach from my home in the city.

Tuesday afternoons / evenings
Thursday afternoons / evenings
