Professional Actor offering Acting Tuition for Drama School Auditions, LAMDA Exams & Much More

My Lessons and What I Teach:

My main job as an Acting Tutor is to spark your imagination and guide you, at your own pace, to a place where you can take ownership over both your craft as a performer AND your own self-expression as an individual.

My teaching practise is about meeting the individual needs of the student:

• If you are someone with the ambition of going to Drama School or pursuing a career as an Actor - I have a programme that I can provide you with that will give you the best possible chance of getting you to the next stage in your career.

• Similarly, if you are a child/teenager/adult who is looking to gain Performance qualifications with the LAMDA Exam Board - I have 3 years experience in preparing students for the Acting, Verse & Prose and Public Speaking Exams that LAMDA offer and would be able to guide you through fulfilling your potential in these exams.

• Equally, if you are someone who just wants to feel you can articulate yourself more confidently in everyday and professional life - I am also qualified to provide you with skills and techniques to support you in making that possible.

Fundamentally, my lessons are tailor made to ensure the needs of the individual are prioritised above all else. I therefore have varying tutoring programmes depending on what it is you want to get out of the sessions.

Methodology:

My teaching is rooted in the belief that Playing is the most effective way of Working. I employ techniques used by Konstantin Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov, Jerzy Grotowski, Patsy Rodenburg, Rudolf Laban and many other practitioners to provide you with a diverse tool-kit that you can take ownership of and use in a way that suits you.

Regardless of what you want to get of the sessions, these 5 main areas of focus remain as a constant at the bedrock my practise in order to ensure a rounded and cohesive training. They are as follows:

1. Physical Ease and Engagement
2. Vocal Ease and Engagement
3. Sense of Play and Use of Imagination
4. Textual Comprehension
5. Stagecraft and Understanding the Theatrical Space

Extra information

Always make sure you come to class wearing clothes you can easily move in. Performing is a physical activity and we may do some exercises that require some ease of movement.

Also always bring a notebook and a pen/pencil so you can take notes.

Skype French class (online) with native teacher! The technology to learn.
The technology to improve your French. Classes with a certified native teacher. Hello Bonjour! I am a native French teacher and graduated in French Philology since 2012. I have five years of experience in Belgium and abroad. I propose online classes with a method that I have developed over the years, specifically for online classes. My method: -During class we focus on speaking. Outside of class, I will send you exercises that I will correct each week (grammar, conjugation, writing…). -Use a particular technique based on questions / answers to apply grammar speaking. -You will also receive an access to an application for your Smartphone (to learn the vocabulary). -Use an interactive whiteboard. -We will use a shared online notebook to correct your exercises and ask me your questions at any time of the day. I propose preparation for official exams (DELF, dalf, tcf, eoi ...). Classes for beginners, intermediate or advanced levels. Preparation of conferences or talks for business. Job interviews. The class is a bit different when I work with children or teenagers. I use interactive websites and letters. If you want a young, organized, dynamic and passionate teacher, call me or write me!

Assert yourself by the work of the voice and the oral expression / Paris
The current professional world pushes us to always look valiant and efficient. But the voice can suddenly fail us and we hear screaming, inside us: "I'll never get there, I'm not up to it!" These silent cries block our expression and force us to remain spectators. of those who arrive there: to speak, to master their voice, their body, their speech ... How would it be otherwise, when we never learned these techniques and did not train? Public speaking has, for many of us, more naturalness. Today, and we can rejoice, oral expression is up to date in our Western societies. The work that this effort requires is known and it is important to be able to share its vulnerabilities with someone you trust, who will make you rediscover the pleasure behind fear! My specificity as a teacher? I transmit an accompaniment adapted to each person, resulting from my theatrical practice, vocal and my constant research on the language. My teaching experiences led me to be attentive to the problems related to the speech of women, particularly spoiled in terms of cultural obstacles! Others may also be happy to experiment with me a different approach, departing from the usual male injunctions. My goal is to find the singularity of each voice, which is that of each being. The solutions that you will put in place to make you feel more comfortable will emerge from you, your work guided with kindness and involvement. Want to try this joyous adventure? Welcome !

*New* English with qualified British Teacher (native speaker): Friendly, Informative, Effective English Language Lessons (online via Skype)
Hello, I am a qualified native British English teacher, with a passion for helping people improve their English in a friendly, relaxed, collaborative way. I can help you increase your competence, and confidence, in both general and business English. Everybody has different language learning needs, therefore, your lesson will be tailored to meet your individual requirements. You may feel that you need to improve your listening comprehension, or extend your vocabulary; fine tune your pronunciation, or enhance your written and spoken grammar; boost your confidence in public speaking or feel comfortable with social conversation. Together we will identify your areas of priority and get you to where you want to be. I have a clear speaking voice, with no regional accent – which learners find easy to understand, and a friendly collaborative approach, rather than a dictatorial teaching style. I am learning French (my level is B2), so I know from personal experience that learning a new language can be challenging. Sometimes we feel we have reached a plateau and feel disheartened. In these situations, we need somebody who will be patient and take time to help us. I also know how frustrating it can be when we find it difficult to find the nuances that help us to express ourselves fluently. I understand. I will help you progress. It is natural to be nervous when learning to speak another language, but I promise not to scare you! I will help you overcome those nerves and develop confidence & competence in the areas that you need it most. I have the necessary pedagogy to help you with grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, listening skills and the varied styles of writing. (TEFL qualified with Distinction, 150-hour course). I also have 29 years’ experience in public speaking and giving presentations, so if you need to practice those skills in English I can help you with that. If you choose to learn with me, our first session will focus on identifying the following: • your language learning goals • your reasons for learning English • your language learning needs • your preferred method of learning • the amount of time you have allocated to studying English I look forward to working with you!
