Actress, Voiceover artist, Youth Practitioner and African Studies graduate offering English/Drama tuition and confidence coaching in London.

Methodology

I am a Scottish actress living in London and offer tuition up to A-Level, or further drama tuition for those hoping to apply to drama school. I like to work on an individual and personalised basis with each student. Depending on what they need, my sessions will be developed and catered towards their worries and fears, addressing the gaps they are struggling to fill. Whilst I offer an academic service, I can interweave this with confidence and leadership coaching as these issues tend to come hand in hand with the pressures of exams, school and growing up.

Experience

I have worked in various capacities with young people, including; arts-based youth engagement across Hackney and Islington, freelance employability workshops in schools across the UK, summer schools and specialised sessions with young women in secondary schools on encouraging fearlessness, compassion, leadership and courage, as well as dissecting structures of oppression, power and privilege. I have a BA (Hons) in African Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (with a specialism in Film & Literature) and have been in training at the Identity School of Acting for the last two years.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £20/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £120
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £200

Details

If I have to travel over half an hour each way, I will add an expense.
