About Helen

I have been working as a tutor for 19 years and have had students aged from 8 to 50 years. Teaching has taken place both in person and via Skype (world wide long distance). Generally, programmes of work have been developed for those needing general support with school work, Sats tests, 11+, other entrance exams, GCSE exams and retake work, A level development, degree support and doctorate development (assistance with the writing of your thesis). Regarding drama, I am a professional theatre director and have worked with a range of colleges as well as theatre companies working with children and young people. I have also worked with the Birmingham Hippodrome, The Repertory Theatre and within the West End. Many of my students have improved their predicted grades at GCSE and A level, some have returned to me for support whilst at University and Drama School and some have, as the result of attending my drama school or working with me on a one to one basis, have successfully been cast in key roles on stage and television.

Tutoring Experience:

I think it is important that all lessons/sessions are geared to the specific needs of the student. Consequently, I try to make sessions as collaborative as possible, and encourage as much contribution from the student as possible. Ideas only stick through engagement and participation - not lecturing - so I will try to make texts/subjects as interesting and relevant as possible. However, I also acknowledge the necessity of a methodical approach, particularly with reference to exams, so I am happy to discuss the process of putting together an essay - length, time management, structure etc. An initial meeting will always be arranged before tutoring is confirmed, to make sure that the student and tutor will be able to work together.
