Alex - Central London - School English

Methodology

I'm a LAMDA BA graduated actor and I provide one-on-one monologue coaching for actors applying to Drama School. I also provide either one-on-one or workshop classes for students taking their LAMDA Examinations from entry level to grade 8.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I focus mainly on LAMDA examinations and Drama School auditions; picking the right pieces to suit you, direction on your speeches with exercises from a range of practitioners, voice, interview preparation, general advice and any specific needs. I also teach English at varying levels from early stages to A Level.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I'm a recent graduate from LAMDA and whilst there studied a wide range of disciplines including; Improvisation, Movement, Classical Text, Modern Plays, Acting for Camera, Historical Dance, Alexander Technique, Stage Combat, Audition Technique and Clown. These disciplines were taught through a range of practitioner theories including Stanislavsky, Boal, Yat and Brecht. My extensive training has equipped me with the skills to provide intensive, varied and colourful acting training for anyone applying to Drama School.

- How much do you charge?

I am flexible but generally charge between £35-£55 an hour depending on what is required, I also offer group sessions and package deals.

- Where do you teach?

I can teach around the South London area, and can travel to visit your home anywhere in London, Central London, Surrey and the surrounding areas.

- When are you available?

Please enquire

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I also offer online tutoring which can be useful for last minute classes for auditions, those wishing to book in for an online class can contact me in the usual way and must have access to either a Skype account/ another form of video calling. Payment for online classes must be made in advance and with all my other classes the 48hr cancellation policy applies.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

As well as training at LAMDA, I also attended The BRIT School of Performing Arts and Technology where I set up and ran a small theatre company; writing, directing and producing small-scale fringe work at theatres such as The Cockpit and The Brighton Fringes' Upstairs at Three and Ten. Other relevant experience includes; interning for The Royal Court Theatres' 'The Audience' by Tim Couch, interning for various productions at The Edinburgh Fringe for Tangram Theatre Company including F**ked and Almost ten,
working as a PA to Alice De Sousa at the Greenwich Playhouse and a two week work experience placement with Look Left Look Right Theatre Company, for their show 'The Caravan' at The Royal Court.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I felt lost and rusty after spending years out of drama school andI lacked confidence, then I had classes with Alex and she had me feeling renewed! In her classes we worked on techniques to free me up in voice and body, and attack the work with energy. I found Alex's teaching INTRINSIC to auditioning, analysing text, sight-reading, acting for camera, speech fundamentals, breathing techniques, for any purpose. Alex is very attentive,thorough, professional and doesn't waste time.

My daughter loves acting but was finding Drama School auditions very difficult. We booked Alex in for three months every week over the busiest period of my daughters first round auditions and we saw a marked improvement from her first year of applying. She also had more confidence. Alex also helped her pick her speeches and get into the world of Shakespeare - something she'd found inaccessible up to now.

I didn't realise how far you could go in an acting class. I'd only ever done drama classes at school. Alex was incredibly detailed and directed me in ways I'd never experiences before. It was so beneficial being taught by someone who had actually worked professionally and been to LAMDA herself. She kind of took me to a whole new level!

I
Isaac

I'd become very tense about auditions and as a result was not playful in the room. Alex worked with me to remind me to be free and not to try to please people - just be honest. I still use some of her exercises. She's given me so much confidence to just be myself and let my ability shine through.
