As a Speech and Drama teacher at St Francis Catholic Primary School in Caterham, I coach all areas of speech and drama for Festivals and exams, focusing on children between the ages of 4 to 16 years old.

I work with the New Era Academy Examinations syllabus to prepare students for their exams and auditions.
My students have been successful in "Poetry by Heart" as Surrey Winners in 2020, 2021 and 2023. Other festival awards include "CLiPPA Shadowing " - winners in 2022, "International Oratory Festival" in 2022 and 2023 (Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards).
