I am a professional theatre director and performer, with a wealth of experience in actor development and working with young people in the theatre.
I have a degree in Drama from the University of Exeter, where my studies took particular interest in theatrical history and different approaches to actor training.
I also take a keen interest in languages. I spent the last year training at a renowned theatre school in Paris, where I have perfected my grasp of French and spent time teaching English as a foreign language to French children. I also have a basic understanding of Italian.
Availability: I work part time in London as a Resident Director in a secondary school. Where I teach students aged 14-18 drama lessons. My timetable is flexible and I am based in Central London.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have worked for various youth theatre companies as a director and workshop facilitator so have a good understanding of the curriculum and how to approach drama with young people. Contact this Tutor
With my own theatre companies, I have worked both exclusively with teenagers and with schools as part of a workshop programme, delivering theatre workshops to compliment the curriculum and introduce new aspects of theatre-making.
Due to my experience as a director, I have also been able to consult many actors with audition pieces, monologues and small scenes. I pride myself on being able to give constructive, concise feedback and can offer, in the long term, effective actor training.
Aside from my theatrical work, I have also experience in teaching languages. My part-time work in Paris, teaching children English, has given me a great understanding about language acquisition - which I have applied to my own language studies. I enjoy regularly participating in language exchanges and sharing cultural aspects such as songs, ideas and even cuisine with people as an aid to learning a language.
