Among the techniques and skills I cover:

VOICE:

- Phonetics
- Elocution & accent reduction
- Dialects & accents
- Effective use of the voice
- Voice for the workplace

- How much do you charge?

My hourly rate of £50 (and £40 for any subsequent hours within the same session) is inclusive of preparation work, travel, and email/phone support.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach at your home, and areas I cover include Milton Keynes, Leighton Buzzard, Aylesbury, Tring, Berkhamsted and more. I'm happy to receive enquiries for locations further afield (e.g. locations in the surrounding counties of Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Oxfordshire), although an additional travel fee may be required.

- When are you available?

Weekdays, evenings and weekends (depending on work commitments)

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages from 16 upwards.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I'm a firm believer that anyone can improve their vocal, acting and dramatic skills swiftly, given the right tools for the job, and I tailor my approach to each student in line with their experience, abilities, requirements and aspirations. I'm passionate about my work, and am friendly, easy going, and empathetic.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Equity

- Tell me about some of your current students.

For the last ten years I have taught acting and vocal skills to a wide range of students across a variety of organisations and ages, from teenagers up to retirees. I prepare students for drama school auditions, focusing on classical and contemporary monologues and audition technique. I currently work on a freelance basis for a well known Performing Arts School, delivering classes to 300 students in a wide range of disciplines, and for an organisation providing acting classes for adults. I also work on a one-to-one basis with those looking for help with accent reduction/elocution and with people seeking to improve on public speaking and presentation in the workplace, increasing positivity, confidence and self esteem.
