Hi there, I'm Benedict. I have a wide range of interests, but my main passions are to do with the English Language, Drama and Music. I graduated in 2012 from the University of Birmingham with a 2.1 in Drama & Theatre Arts.
Since then I have worked with many reputable theatre companies, including the Royal Shakespeare Company for three years. I have worked as both a Shakespeare and a Puppetry consultant, and I also give Accent & Pronunciation classes to actors of all backgrounds, nationalities and ages.
As an English Teacher, I hold a grade 'A' CELTA qualification, and have worked for the highly reputable Hampstead School of English and ABC School of English, both in London. I have received consistently excellent feedback for my teaching. I listen to my students' needs and make lessons that are fun and informative.
As a musician and singer I hold grade 8 certificates in singing and trombone. I sing in several choirs and play & sing with Park Lane Big Band.
Whatever subject I'm teaching, I'm a big fan of working out what kind of learners my students are, and finding materials and approaches that really engage them. I'm very patient, friendly and easy-going, and I'm only happy when I've done my job properly!
