A bit about Hilary T

I have taught Drama in both formal and informal educational contexts.  I have taught GCSE English, ESOL and Communications in a formal context, and worked in Learning Support and Additional Learning Support in several FE colleges and schools.


I was Director of Common Stock Youth Theatre for 5 years, running drama and writing workshops at the company’s base in Hammersmith and in local primary and secondary schools.  I structured workshops to lead towards rehearsed readings and productions of both devised work and existing scripts which I directed.


Following this, I worked in several theatre in education companies including Theatrevan, Snap, Nottingham Playhouse and Y Touring, in primary and secondary schools across the country.  I performed and facilitated in numerous productions, the most recent being Y Touring’s ‘The Gift’, a play about inherited disease and genetic selection touring in London secondary schools. 


Whilst at the Institute of Education, I did my teaching practice at a secondary school in Ealing, where I taught KS3 and 4 English and Drama.  At the William Morris 6th Form College, I taught GCSE and A Level Drama, GCSE English and Key Skill Communication on vocational courses (Leisure and Tourism, Science and IT).  I also ran the extra curricular Performing Arts Group and directed two productions.


I have done voluntary work attachments with the Market Theatre of Johannesburg and the Baxter Theatre, Cape Town and written about these experiences for New Theatre Quarterly (CUP).  I have acted in several fringe productions, at RADA and in a new children’s BBC Drama series, and worked for the NSPCC on a training film. 


I have run drama for young adults with mental health issues in relation to a production I directed at New Wimbledon Studio Theatre, and worked as teaching assistant at Westminster Adult College for students with learning difficulties.


I have taught for two terms at Hammersmith and West London College (Key Skills and pre-GCSE English); and one term at Kingston College on the BA Honours Acting programme.  More recently, I have taught GCSE English at Berkshire College of Agriculture, and tutored GCSE English for Winchmore tutors.
