Stage Name: Nicholas Banks
Bedford/Cambridge AND London (Zone 1-2) Tutor

Tutoring Experience:

I currently teach at at a specialist college in Cambridgeshire and also with the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I have taught at a high achieving and successful Independent Boarding School and some of the best degree institutions including Laine Theatre Arts in Surrey and East 15 Acting School in Essex.

Tutoring Approach:

I have experience of tutoring foundation and higher papers. For those looking for revision sessions in the lead up to exams I recommend 1 x one or two hour lesson per week for 6-8 weeks before the exam. In these lessons we will cover the Eng Lang paper Section A and B: Writing and Reading before revision key themes and ideas behind the texts you are studying and then move onto past papers and essay structure. We normally finish with two hours or more on your poetry and of course the (scary) not so scary unseen poem (It's really not that scary when you know how!) I appreciate - and remember how school work can sometimes by boring which is why I bring an engaging and fun way of working into your home and that I can promise.
For students wishing to get a head-start and have lessons one year or two before the GCSE I recommend a one or two hour lesson at the end of every month. This is to go over everything you have learnt in the classroom environment at school and put that into a safe and detailed one-to-one environment to really solidify all your knowledge. * I cannot recommend this enough - especially if you are in a packed classroom with other disruptive students which can make you feel like you're not getting the attention from the teacher that you need. That's what I'm here for!

I also am an acting coach for students wishing to audition for Drama School.
