Inspiring and engaging tutor

I am an actor based in London. I play the guitar and the cello. I have a wide range of interests from the theatre and film, through football to comic books. A massive Spider-man and Manchester United fan, I also enjoy visiting galleries and museums and even attending the odd concert.

The reason that I wanted to become a tutor is that I know how important a good one can be. I had a couple of private tutors and many good teachers throughout my academic career and I am indebted to all of them. Without their help I would not have been able to go to the places, or achieve the things, that I have. Having someone explain things to you, just for you, in the way that you can understand is a great feeling. I still add decimals how I was taught when I was eight because it was explained in a way that I thought was funny, so I remembered it.

This is the kind of teaching experience that I want to pass on. Learning doesn't need to be boring. If explained in the right way anything can be understood and found to be interesting. I also love my subjects and I would love to pass that on.

I'd like to think of myself as friendly, patient and professional. I can relate to lots of different people, am a good listener and I work well with kids. Being an actor I am open to lots of ideas and different methods but I also understand the need for structure and discipline at the right times.

Exams and difficult subjects can be nerve racking at times but, if approached well and logically, they can become easily tackled and, sometimes, enjoyable too.

Written by Joanne K

"he's amazing", "a real professional"

Owen's professional and tailored approach were evident from day one, as was his knack for clear and relevant explanations. He offered good, practical advice on exam technique which gave my son confidence walking into some very tough 11+ exams. Confidence backed up by a sound knowledge of what was expected were a recipe for success and with Owen's help, my son received offers from the two highly selective schools he applied for.
As a parent, I valued Owen's clear and detailed lesson reports and his prompt response to any communication. I could see a genuine interest in my son, and how his mind works.
My son looked forward to his weekly sessions with Owen and was always in a great mood afterwards, buzzing around with new ideas and renewed enthusiasm. When asked to sum up his thoughts on Owen he said "he's amazing", "a real professional".
