Super tutor

Carl is one of our best Acting tutors. High-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

About the lesson

I find it a privilege and a pleasure to work at motivating learners on a one-to-one basis, and love to see the confidence and even enjoyment (!) that grows out of the gaining of knowledge, skills and understanding.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English, from GCSE to A-Level and above.
Shakespeare specialist, from both academic and performance perspectives.
Drama School Auditions.
Editing and proof-reading at undergraduate and graduate levels.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Open Exhibition to Trinity Hall College, Cambridge
MA (Cantab) in English
PGCE English and Media Studies, Institute of Education
Postgraduate Certificate in Acting, Webber Douglas Academy

- How much do you charge?

£35 - GCSE
£40 - A Level and above
£35 - Drama School auditions

- Where do you teach?

I offer a quiet, safe and comfortable workspace in my family home for delivering tutorials. However I can travel within reasonable distances. Travel time needs to be accounted for with a negotiable surcharge.Travel time of more than half an hour by public transport becomes a problem as this can reduce my availability for other students; but this can be offset (negotiable) if the lesson is increased to one and a half or two hours, for which I usually offer a reduced rate.

- When are you available?

Late afternoon and early evening, most weekdays.
Later Saturday mornings. Some Sunday afternoons.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Secondary school and older.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

English Language and Literature at GCSE, A Level, and above.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Proof-reading can be done effectively on-line. However, I don't believe this is the case for tutoring in English - it may be commercially convenient, but I believe it to be seriously inferior to live interaction.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

While striving to come up with whatever examiners seem to require, never forget that English is a life skill that, more than any other subject, draws on who you are as a person. Try and enjoy that - the more you talk, read and write, the more you are equipped to be a good communicator and that will not only lift your English results but will have a positive impact on all of your studies.

About Carl

- What kind of experience do you have?

I was a full time teacher of English and Media Studies (with Drama) for 9 years in a Hertfordshire secondary school.
I have tutored for the past 10 years with an impressive success rate at GCSE and A Level (see testimonials).
I also work intermittently as a supply teacher, which keeps me in touch with current curriculum trends and changes.
I also have extensive experience as a freelance theatre writer/director/actor:
Founding Artistic Director of Medieval Players Theatre Company.
Published adapter/director of 5 Shakespeare plays for National Theatre (Discover).
Have worked extensively as a guest director at RADA and East 15 Acting School.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have current Full DBS.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Further to my Cambridge degree in English, leading to my MA (Cantab.), I trained at the Institute of Education (1990-91) where I received my PGCE.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

National Union of Teachers
British Actors Equity

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I'm currently or have recently been teaching students at GCSE English with AQA, EdExcel (incl.IGCSE) and OCR, and A-Level English. Two of my Drama School audition students gained places recently at Mountview and RADA. I have also been working with two foreign language students, editing their essays for PGCE and journalism courses. I am experiencing a growing demand for help in essay-writing at undergraduate and postgraduate level, with some impressive results.
