Private Drama & Acting Tuition for Auditions and Additional Training

Whether you need help with your audition pieces for drama school, or you require an outside eye to prepare you for your Drama A Level, I can direct you to present the best version of yourself as a performer and the text you have at hand.

I will take a comprehensive approach to your performance. We will focus on the context of the text and its history. We'll research and explore your character whilst discovering your strengths as a performer. We'll discuss the choices you'll be making for your performance through Stanislavski, Laban Efforts and voice/accent work, or whatever we find works best for you. I will ensure that you'll go for your audition, confident in the knowledge that you've embodied the character and the text.

I'm an actor, director and theatre academic with an MA Acting from The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts (ALRA). I've taught a range of subjects, including Stanislavski, Brecht and Animal Studies, as well as Applied Theatre History.

I prefer to do in-person sessions, but given the current situation, I'm very happy to carry out sessions online.

Dutch conversation lessons for children, teenagers and adults
My way of teaching is including having fun. Why?! It can be really "scary" to learn a different language, but not with me! I will make you feel confident in speaking another language, so you will be ready to explore more and more by yourself in time. We will focus on listening, pronunciation and conversation. We will do this by reading, listening and I will be explaining the Dutch grammar step by step. Afterwards I will challenge you with some homework you need to prepare for the next time ;) Ready for this challenge? See you in my class than!!!

Portuguese Language and Brazilian Culture: Learn with fun!
Do you want to speak Portuguese and get closer to the Brazilian culture in a fun and dynamic way? Well, I am a Brazilian who can show you our History, our art, customs and the great diversity of Brazilian Portuguese accents, as if you were on a virtual trip to Brazil. I have been teaching my language to people of different levels and objectives for more than two years, which gave me great experience in adapting my classes according to the needs of each student. Thus, in addition to traditional grammar, I use movies, songs, literature and other resources according to the profile of each student. In Brazil, I worked in schools and science museums, where I gained practice teaching children, youth, and adults. I also worked writing and reviewing articles for magazines, so I have great experience with the written Portuguese language. I offer online classes via webcam or face-to-face (in Granada, Spain) so that the student can choose the way that suits him best.

English tutoring speaking conversation for all levels
Offering sessions catering to various levels from beginner to working professionals. Whether you are looking to get more comfortable with English conversations, pronunciation, writing, grammar, levelling up in sophistication, or even just talking chill over coffee – I’m there for you.* Contact me to get started. *Wir können natürlich zwischendurch auf Deutsch sprechen – da bin ich auch dabei. Experience I am a musician with degrees in music and science from both Germany and New Zealand (where I grew up). Throughout my studies I have not only attained several first in class awards, but also marked a few assignments in Statistics 101 – which proved to be more of an English writing task than many would expect. From then on, I was a total fan of better communication. Having a diverse group of friends from all over the world here, I have enjoyed helping them strengthen their English skills. Seeing their increase in confidence in being able to converse and express themselves in English, and enjoying their progress, is what it’s all about for me. I now teach privately and look forward to helping more people communicate in this twisted yet wonderful language.

Singing/Voice Lessons & Beginner Music Theory Lessons
I teach private singing lessons to children, teenagers, and adults in English (for now) and beginner music theory for all ages. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, I am teaching online only. There is no extra cost to the student and you don't have to leave the comfort of your home to have a fun time! I have 20 years experience as a performer and 10 years of teaching experience and have a passion for sharing music with others through music education. I believe that singing is a joyful expression of each unique voice and person. My teaching philosophy is to nurture students to have a fun and positive relationship with music no matter the level or age. My focus on a classical vocal technique gives the student a clear understanding of vocal technique, including: breathing techniques, pitch control, musicality and the knowledge to explore any genre of song. Basic music theory, rhythm, diction, sight-reading and ear training are also taught to the student to support a well rounded musical experience. I also teaches students how to practice, giving them the tools to feel confident in their own learning process. Absolute beginners are welcome! For online course, piano tracks are provided for you to sing along with during the lesson and we have a lot of fun together.
