SECONDARY TEACHER, ACTING COACH and ANALYSIS ACADEMIC

Hello,
My name is Zak.

I am currently in my final semester of a Masters in Teaching at Melbourne University (MGSE) and my most recent training as an actor and theatre maker was through the three year full time Bachelor of Dramatic Art at 'The Victorian College of the Arts (VCA)' faculty of Melbourne University.

I am a qualified secondary teacher and have experience teaching Drama and in both non-school and school (years 7-12) contexts with a focus on the VCE Theatrical units (VCE Theatre Studies & VCE Drama) and also have experience with the International Baccalaureate (Theatre Arts) subjects. I also have school experience in teaching secondary Media Studies (years 7-12).

My preference is to teach, create and develop in a studio environment - learning by doing - but I am also very proficient with the academics of theatre and media studies.

I mold each session depending on what is required. The way I facilitate a class depends on what you're personal task focus is; eg. audition or exam preparation, essay writing, performance making, skills development, etc. I believe a student centered approach generates the most effective results in learning and teaching.

Having fun and feeling passionate about the work are central aspects to my teaching philosophy and I'm confident that whatever the specific learning goals might be we can work together enthusiastically to accomplish them!

Experience:


-3 years teaching experience (specialization in Drama & Media Studies)
