BIOGRAPHY & INTERESTS

I have been mentoring, working and acting in London for the last year and a half after graduating from Bristol. My favourite London spot is Hampstead Heath (especially the swimming ponds, although preferably in the summer). Although my sporting abilities are minimal, I am a keen skier and rock climber and aim to find as many sports as possible that donโ€™t involve catching or kicking balls. I have worked in social media marketing as well as freelance script-reading for companies like ITV. I have been up to Edinburgh Fringe Festival the last two years with a theatre company I met at university and whilst in London work in both writing and acting and currently doing a part time course with Soho Theatre as an actor/writer. I am also involved in an LGBTQ+ charity in London.

EXPERIENCE & APPROACH

My mentoring has spanned from building up the confidence of four year olds before starting school to helping mature students with their degrees. I largely specialise in English, Drama and writing. I focus on finding a tailored approach for learning, one that often will not be found within a classroom or curriculum. I have found this is key to each person's learning; it re-engages their curiosity and builds their confidence. I like to make my lessons fun, creative and engaging; encouraging curiosity and helping the students discover the tools to figure things out. Just as every person is different, every person learns differently and that is something to be valued and celebrated rather than overlooked.
