Personal Description:

Friendly and enthusiastic tutor and facilitator teaching Drama at all levels (GCSE, A Level, Degree, Auditioning for drama schools, coaching for professionals). Teaching English and Media Studies to GCSE and Film at all levels. I have come to specialise in being able to help students be their best in exams and auditions.

I have written, directed and produced many plays and films working extensively with professional actors. I have had work in the Brighton and Lewes Festivals.
I founded a number of theatre companies and currently run a nationally recognised social issues and human rights drama company.

Tutoring Experience:

Experienced tutor and facilitator. Taught in both mainstream and special needs schools and colleges in London (Wandsworth College and the City Lit.) and for East and West Sussex Education authorities. I have run special projects for Gifted and Talented pupils and have run youth theatres and produced numerous theatre, film and writing projects. Taught Drama, English and creative writing to seriously ill children at St Bartholomew`s Hospital school for over five years. My work has been featured in The Times Educational Supplement.

Qualification in teaching from the City Lit… Diploma in drama from an accredited British Drama School. Trained in film at the Kensington Film Project and Brighton Film School as well as training with film director Mike Hodges (Get Carter, The Croupier).

Experienced writer and happy also to teach writing and play/screenplay writing.

Tutoring Approach:

A member of AQA and Edexcel I work with past papers to make sure students are thoroughly prepared for examinations. I work in a person centred way so that the teaching session is focused on each student's particular needs. I have tended to specialise in working with students approaching exams. I create learning plans for each student that works with their particlar strengths and through knowing what the exam boards want, the student is empowered to be able to do their best. I get students enthusiastic about the work and able to think for themselves. I have helped a number of students with special learning needs pass their GCSE's.
Extensive practical experience of writing, drama; acting and directing, means I can be of particular assistance to students studying plays and novels. I have developed special resources for most most GCSE and A level texts- plays and novels eg. A Doll`s House, An Inspector Calls, Of Mice and Men, Medea, Our Country's Good, The Seagull, Romeo and Juliet etc. etc. These resources enable students to gain a deep understanding of the text and to know how to approach exam questions.

Note- I am an expert on helping students who are feeling stressed or overwhelmed with their A Level drama exam or where the school or college or the lack of teaching has let them down. And happy if you would just like to discuss how I how I can help.

Some feedback from recent students and their mum's:

Rating: 5/5
Comments: Will was incredibly helpful when contacted at very short notice to see if he could give feedback on drama A Level coursework. His comments have been very useful and easy to understand. The advice he gave will be invaluable throughout the rest of the course too. Highly recommended!

"Dear Will, I just wanted to let you know how brilliantly he did in his exams! He got the well deserved A in drama, an A* in English and a C in Biology. Warwick required AAB but A*AC is the equivalent and they have confirmed his place for September 2016.
Thank you for all your help and support.

"Good news. She secured a B overall in her Drama A2 as a result of a B in her written paper – it was this B which in fact secured her place at Southampton. So the exercise of resitting the written exam was well worth it and your input made all the difference, so huge thanks from us both".

"Just to let you know he got B in both Drama and Film. He is really pleased and only 3 marks of an A overall!! so thanks for all the help and I hope we can do some more work this year.
