BIOGRAPHY & INTERESTS
Alongside teaching, I work as a theatre director and co-founded award-winning Dugout Theatre. As a director, I like to make comedy plays with live music and my shows have been seen at venues across the UK. I am also passionate about endurance sport and enjoy marathon running. This year, I will be attempting my first Iron Man. Other interests include; Chelsea FC, The Rolling Stones, Charles Dickens and Test Cricket.
EXPERIENCE & APPROACH
As a theatre director, it is my job to optimise the performance of my actors. For each actor, that process is different - some connect to a play intellectually, others physically and, for some, that connection may be found in a more oblique way - through a prop or item of costume, for instance. Similarly, with my teaching - I was Theatre Director in Residence at Dulwich College School - I find that each pupil will engage with learning in a different way and it is my job to think creatively and find the path which will most optimise performance. Alongside my work at Dulwich College, I have tutored boys and girls (6-18 years old) at Alleyns School, Newton Prep Battersea and Westminster School.

"I'd to thank George for getting my daughter through her GCSE exams. He developed a great rapport with her and helped to push her to academic success and also built up her confidence too." Mother of 15 year old girl
"George is quite simply put an astonishing tutor! Jeremy had been struggling with his French, but George soon helped. He is a funny, charming and extremely capable tutor and I would heartedly recommend him to all." Father of 11 year old boy
