About Jane

English, Drama/Theatre Studies, and Primary Tutor

I tutor Primary and Secondary level students of all capabilities. I love my subjects and I love tutoring! I work with the students to identify their individual needs and find an approach that best helps them learn and perform; leading to greater confidence and enthusiasm for the subject and improved academic results. I have tutored, worked in schools and taught drama for the past 7 years. My core subjects are Drama and English Literature & Language, including creative writing, literary analysis, phonics and linguistics, comprehension, essay writing skills, and verbal expression. For exam preparation, I focus on comprehension, time management and study skills. I cover maths and general studies at primary school level and preparation for 11+ and 13+ exams. I also coach Acting and help students prepare for auditions and entry to Drama Schools. As a freelance theatre director I have worked at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, The Old Vic, RSC and in the West End. I also facilitate drama workshops at all levels of education.

Fantastic Tutor – Great Results!

Written by John L
Jane was a fantastic tutor for my son preparing for competitive entrance exams to secondary school. She has a friendly and thorough approach, and kept us in the loop on his progress with a summary email after every lesson! His confidence grew with every lesson and he was accepted into our top choice school.
Outcome:
My sons confidence grew with every lesson and he was accepted into our top choice school.

Cannot recommend highly enough!

Written by Kelly C
Jane’s theatre and directing experience was extremely beneficial for my audition preparation. She helped me get to grips with a challenging Shakespeare monologue and a modern monologue, and build a strong sense of character. I successfully got a place on the Acting course at Mountview (drama school) and continue to consult Jane on occasion when preparing auditions for professional roles. Her specificity and creative approach are invaluable and I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Outcome:
I got accepted into three Drama Schools in London!

A great help in a short time

Written by Andrew G
Jane came to help our daughter prepare for the 11+ entrance exams in English, for just a few sessions. They immediately built a great rapport and Jane's arrival was something to be looked forward to not just more exam preparation. One of the reasons was that Jane lessons were very insightful; for example giving tips about how to use the language of the question to work out what sort of answer was required. Our daughter felt that "the things Jane taught me would have taken us ages to learn at school". From a parents point of view I liked the super organised feedback on what they had covered in each lesson.
Subject:
English (11+)
Outcome:
Got a place at four top London day schools and a scholarship. Great outcome.
