As an actor I have worked for Netflix, the BBC and on the West End.
As a writer I have written for a new writing festival at the Southwark Playhouse and a 25 minute short film of mine is currently in pre-production.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have 100+ hours experience in drama tutorage.

Previous students of mine auditioning for drama school have secured places at LAMDA (a school which regularly sees upwards of 5000 auditionees a year), The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and the National Youth Theatre.

I have worked with students preparing for LAMDA Examinations for Acting, Verse & Prose and Public Speaking in grades ranging from Entry Level to Grade 7.

I have coached professionals new to public speaking in preparation for formal speeches.

I have worked with students on developing more clarity, confidence and connection in their voices - this has also also included accent softening.

I have also done accent work with established actors. So far I have worked with General American, South East London, Edinburgh and Standard British English.

I have also worked for LAMDA Examinations in an administrative capacity and have been on the interview panel for LAMDA auditions at the drama school.

I regularly work alongside screen tutors at the Met Film School (based at Ealing Studios) on the BA Hons and MA courses to help student directors find a language to work with actors and to encourage them not to give result based direction.

I have led workshops at "Monday Club" on various subjects from Grotowski to Clown.

I ran a drama group for 12-13 year olds at Fulford Secondary School.
How much do you charge?
This depends on the subject.
Where do you teach?
I tend to tutor from my base which is a couple of minutes from Acton Town tube station. I am also happy to travel within Greater London and am especially interested in working in West London and zone 1.
When are you available?
My availability is flexible. Please enquire.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
Any. I have worked with pupils from 6-50 thus far.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Not currently
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Do you have a personal message for students?
I am committed to tailoring my approach to your learning needs. I aim to make our sessions an interesting and enjoyable experience but I expect a level of concentration and effort from your part too.

I look forward to working with you!
