Private English and History Tutor in Belfast

I am an actor, singer and dancer who lectures and course coordinates in a Further and Higher Education College in Belfast. My experience as an actor covers Theatre, Film and TV, Radio and Musical Theatre. I am also a qualified Drama and Performing Arts teacher with experience teaching English, English Literature Music, History and RE. My motto as an educator is 'All can' meaning that I truly believe we all can learn and achieve with some guidance, hard work and a good cup of tea. I have experience teaching pupils aged between 7 and 19. I am available for tutoring in AQE, GL, GCSE, A-Level and have a 100% success rate in students achieving places in their chosen university courses. Academic boards include CCEA, AQA, Edexcel, BTEC, LAMDA (Acting solo) LCM (Classical Singing, Musical Theatre) and OCN. I also examine for CCEA and BTEC giving me an insight into the requirements of achieving the top grades. However as a teacher I strive to not only have my pupils achieve examinations but to also grow in confidence and develop a love for learning that will last a lifetime. My passion and enthusiasm for my subjects are obvious and I continue my training with regular CPD. I am first aid trained, have a Level 5 diploma in teaching learners with specific learning difficulties, experience teaching pupils with a wide range of special educational needs and also am fully DBS checked.#/k#

Tutoring Experience

My teaching experience spans from Primary to Degree level. I have taught in both Specialist Performing Arts/Drama Schools, State Schools (Grammar and Secondary) and also Further and Higher Education Colleges. I am comfortable teach those with Special Educational needs including dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, ASD. My experience as an examiner (GCSE/Level 2 Drama, English Literature, A-Level/Level 3 Drama, English Literature, Performing Arts) has given me a rare insight into the examination process enabling me to prepare students efficiently in exam technique.

Tutoring Approach

My teaching approach is very student centred and dependent on the needs of the student. I am energetic, focused but (according to some) ‘still able to have a laugh’.
