For English tuition I have an English Literature degree from the prestigious Durham University. I can tutor at a range of levels. I have taught English at GCSE on the Edexcel and AQA Boards. I have also taught AS and A Level English Literature on the AQA, OCR and Edexcel boards. Particular strengths are in the analysis of poetry, Shakespeare and dramatic texts.

I am in the recent BAFTA/Golden Globe nominated film "Pride" as Jason. I have taught professional actors with audition technique and also general technique. I have also taught actors seeking to gain entry to Drama Schools.

I have been directed by the highest profile directors possible : Nick Hytner, Sean Mathias, Matthew Warchus, Adrian Noble to name a few - this means I have a wealth of experience to help any aspiring actor achieve their goals.
