We can provide Drama and Theatre Studies tuition tailored to specific exams, from GCSE Drama, through IGCSE Drama, IB Theatre, and A Level Drama and Theatre tutors. We help to improve exam performance by making use of past Drama and Theatre Studies papers, reinforcing core learning, developing revision techniques, and helping students to push the boundaries of their knowledge of Drama and Theatre Studies to differentiate themselves from fellow students.
GCSE Drama students will need a solid grounding in topics like Genre, Lighting Design, and Textual Interpretation. The Drama tutors we represent will help your child develop a fluent knowledge of the appropriate methods and concepts, and maximise their abilities as a performer, director, or technician across a range of different contexts, equipping them to excel at GCSE level.
The Drama tutors we work with can help your child across all areas of the IGCSE Drama curriculum, including Understanding Repertoire, Acting Skills, and Characterisation. The IGCSE provides an excellent foundation for further study in Drama, and the tutors we represent will help your child take full advantage of this, reinforcing the key concepts and their practical skills.
IB Theatre is a challenging qualification, covering a range of compulsory and optional components from Creating Theatre, to Working with Play Texts, to Examining World Theatre Traditions. The Theatre tutors we represent will help your child to gain a deeper understanding of the subject, develop their performance and creative skills, and succeed at IB level.
A Level Drama and Theatre is a key subject for many future career paths, and students have to master a wide range of complex topics and skills to succeed. The Drama and Theatre tutors we work with are able to focus in on those areas where your child needs additional support, help them demonstrate their aptitude effectively under time pressure, and ultimately prepare them to perform strongly in these key exams.
The tutors we represent are able to deliver in-person tuition within central London. For those outside of central London we offer online tutoring.
The tutors we represent are well versed in delivering online tuition, using videoconferencing and an interactive whiteboard. This gives students, wherever they are in the world, access to experienced, high quality tutors who are familiar with the requirements for Drama.
