Private English and Drama Tuition in Lancaster

I have recently taken early retirement from full time teaching, but retain a passion for both Drama and English. Prior to that, I worked as an actor.

Tutoring Experience

I have taught Drama and English for 20 years and held head of department roles in both subjects at different times during my career.
I have successfully taught English, Drama and English Literature at GCSE plus Level 3 (A level equivalent) at Drama.

Tutoring Approach

I offer a very supportive and personalised service based on teaching students who have a wide range of learning abilities and styles. The mother of a student with dyslexia sent me a thank you card which included this comment:

"You've made THE difference. It hasn't just been your subject knowledge, you've given her confidence in her abilities and helped through tricky times. She has a lot of respect for you and I know has enjoyed working with you."

As a Drama teacher, I am happy to tutor those wishing to pursue acting or production at a higher level. I have experience of successfully tutoring students in preparation for auditions at college, university and drama school. I also enjoy the challenge of assisting students develop their writing skills for terminal examinations at GCSE having worked as an examiner for AQA.

As an English teacher, I pride myself at building confidence in students as well as developing the wide range of skills required by the current curriculum.
