One of my long term students is currently preparing for her Gold LAMDA award in Verse and Prose. She has thoroughly embraced our lessons and has spent a lot of time preparing and perfecting her pieces. She has received high distinctions in all of her exams and I shall miss teaching her once she has completed her Gold badge. However, she is considering taking the new Shakespeare courses, if time permits before she leaves for University.
My youngest student has just turned 7, and we spend a lot of time creating our own characters and creating scripts and stories alongside the LAMDA syllabus for Entry Level courses.
• BA Hons. Drama Theatre & Performance Studies
• Post Graduate Diploma, Acting
Beth is a great LAMDA teacher. My daughter really looks forward to her lessons and her confidence has grown since beginning lessons with Beth 18 months ago.
Beth has developed a wonderful rapport with her and prepares her for the LAMDA exams brilliantly. She is reliable, trustworthy and professional in all her dealings with us - we couldn’t be happier.
From my experience with Beth ,she is a wonderful teacher who pushes her students to do the best the possibly can .I’ve had Beth as my teacher for over a year ,and she has helped me with not only getting my grade 7 distinction in LAMDA ,but has also helped me get into all of my acting college choices .Her techniques of teaching vary with ,certain classes being purely based on the technical aspects of acting and others being more centered on what her students need .
Beth has been tutoring my daughter for the last 18months and I cannot recommended her highly enough. She is reliable, friendly, professional and has become much more than a tutor to my daughter she has become her friend and confidant. She has supported her through not only her LAMDA exams but also through numerous auditions. Any student would be lucky to have her
I just wanted to let you know that I got my Grade 6 results today - 95/100 and Distinction. I'm obviously really pleased and thank you so much for helping me to prepare and inspiring me so much with it. I really enjoy LAMDA and I can't wait to crack on with Grade 7 once my exams are over. Thanks again!!
I just wanted to let you know that Oliver and Edward both got Distinctions in their LAMDA. Thank you for all your help, they wouldn't have been able to do it without you. Many thanks for everything!
