Information about Tommo

I hold an MPhil Theology from Oxford University and have been a tutor for five years. I coach students in Drama at St Paul`s Girls` School (part-time) and have previously taught curricular Drama at Westminster School (where I still continue to work on an ad hoc basis).

I tutor all age-groups, from 6-18.

With younger children, I work on confidence-building and instilling the capacity to examine problems from multiple perspectives, sharpening critical thought and deepening knowledge. This is particularly important for my work on interview preparation with those applying to independent schools.

For older pupils, our session follow the format of an Oxbridge tutorial, questioning and provoking independent thought and leading students to consider multiple opinions. Depending on the student and subject, I regularly set short essays to ensure that writings skills are continually practiced. In my experience, not enough time is spent on this in class, and arguments are often poorly structured as a result – even by articulate and discerning students.

My interests are wide and varied, and I attempt to give a rounded education which goes beyond a `box-ticking` approach to learning.

I`m also a professional dramaturg (scri pt developer), working with prestigious London theatre including the Royal Court and Bush Theatre. As a theatre director, I`ve worked at some of London`s most prominent Fringe venues, with actors including Olivier Award-winner Griff Rhys Jones, Pearl Mackie (Dr Who) and Harry Melling (Harry Potter).

Availability: Online tuition only.

My 16yrd son is really happy with Tommo, they get on great. My son stayed focused and enjoyed the lessons and Tommo is thoroughly knowledgable about the topics and came well prepared with study pieces for the lessons. He was a huge benefit in helping my son prepare for exams.

Tommo is tutoring my daughter in English GCSE. I am very pleased with the way it is going and so is my daughter. He makes the lesson very interesting but at the same time he challenges her at any opportunity. Cannot recommend him enough.

Due to my sudden changed of my working schedule I could not continue the lesson after the first lesson from Tommo. My first lesson from Tommo was good enough for me to have him to continue to tutor me. Hope I will have him to tutor me again when I not so busy with my work. Best regards grace
