Hello! I am a tutor in English and Drama/Theatre Studies at GCSE, A-Level and University level specialising in improving written technique. I also prepare students for entrance exams, scholarship and UCAS applications, honing interview technique alongside curricular studies. I hold a First-class degree in English Literature and Drama from the University of East Anglia and also provide acting and public speaking coaching.

Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: I have tutored students in a range of subjects, and as such have considerable experience in identifying the particular issues each student faces. Having worked in various private and comprehensive schools, I am well acquainted with the new syllabuses for English and Drama/Theatre Studies. I have also prepared pupils for UCAS applications, having successfully secured places for my students at some of the UK’s top universities. Contact this Tutor
My specialism, simply due to having so many requests for help in these subjects, are English and Drama students that have the knowledge but perhaps struggle to convert it into the grades they deserve. These subjects at GCSE and Alevel are particularly tricky and require a carefully honed written technique to obtain the highest grades.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I will always endeavour to reply within a few hours to your email. As I am new to Tutor Hunt, I have included testimonials from previous tutees below and a link where you can find further reviews.

The tutoring sessions I had with Charlie leading up to my A2 exams firstly helped to simply calm me down about the looming pressure I was about to face. He helped me to apply my knowledge in a way that would showcase it best to examiners. In particular, the way in which he helped me structure essays in timed conditions certainly helped to boost my grade in English. - Catherine, A2 English Literature
Since having several tutor sessions with Charlie, I feel more confident that I can achieve the high grades I want at A Level. He has specifically helped me structure my essays, as well as teaching me to back up my ideas with context and reason. Charlie is clearly very talented, kind and approachable. I have learnt a great deal in the tutor sessions and already my grades have gone up. Now its just about maintaining these new skills!- Charlotte, A2 Theatre Studies
Following a series of poor marks for her English, we recruited Charlie to get our daughters confidence back before her AS exams. Charlie turned out to be reliable and delightful and our daughter not only regained her confidence but a much higher grade than she expected. The delight on her face when she saw her results was a picture. Thank you Charlie. - Stephen, Father of AS English Student.
