Senior English & French Tutor
Lauren joins Prep Academy with over 10 years of experience working with children and youths. She completed her elementary education at Toronto French School, developing bilingual proficiency and a love for language and literature in both English and French. In 2012, she graduated from Queen’s University, with an honours degree in Drama and French, as well as a Bachelor of Education. At Queen’s, she was the recipient of the Principal’s Scholarship, and graduated with distinction. She then moved overseas to complete her MA in Professional Acting at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
For the past two years, Lauren has remained in the UK to pursue professional performance and teaching opportunities. As a cover teacher, she gained experience across all grades and curriculum areas. She soon became a fixture at Bristol Grammar School, where she taught everything from Dance and Music to Maths and Sciences, in addition to assisting with extracurricular productions.
Lauren is especially fond of teaching outside the classroom, both one-on-one and in small groups; she spends her summers at Centauri Summer Arts Camp, where she runs two-week immersive theatre programs for young artists. She loves arts-based education, and strives to incorporate drama, dance, visual arts, and music wherever possible.
Lauren enjoys working with students of all ages, especially through experiential learning. She has experience working with special needs students and strongly believes that given the right opportunities, everyone can learn!
