Experienced acting coach with Acting degree from leading London drama school, Mountview Academy.

Methodology

I love love love acting coaching as I feel confident that I can get amazing performances out of the people I work with when we focus on the right areas they need to work on.

Each client is unique and will require an individual approach but usually, we start by looking at understanding character, intentions and emotional connection to the text. I also explore in-depth voice work, physicality, and texts ranging from brand new writing right the way back to Shakespeare. I am a particular fan of Shakespeare!

Other areas include how to self-tape, how to audition for drama school, commercials, TV and film and theatre; memorisation techniques; how to approach acting agents; how to get auditions; how to set up an acting profile.

Experience

"She is a truly committed actress, showing both a talent for character parts and easy connection with the truth.” Jessica Swale (Globe, Summerland, Leading Lady Parts)

“She reminds me of a young Katherine Parkinson. She is a strong actress with a particular flair for comedy.” Vicky Wildman (CDG)

I am a professionally trained actress (Mountview); multi-award winner; long-form improviser (Comedy Central discovered) with 2 monthly shows and invitations to perform at venues such as The Free Association and Hoopla; and star of BBC Three's viral sketch, ‘Breaking up with a Remoaner’.

I have worked with directors including Jessica Swale (Globe, ‘Summerland’,‘Leading Lady Parts’), Jake Smith (‘The Height of the Storm’, Wyndham, Almeida), Max Key (Trafalgar Studios, Lyric), Dipak Patel (BBC, Comedy Central), Ian Nicholson (Nuffield Southampton) and Amy Liptrott (Pitlochry Festival Theatre).

I also have a degree in English and write for screen, stage and radio. My short film ‘Health Kick’ won Best Short Film, Best Comedy and Audience Choice Award. I have written, produced and performed multiple plays for VAULT Festival, Edinburgh Festival, Women in the West End (Arts Theatre) and The Rosemary Branch Theatre. I have also worked closely with film producer Julia Verdin (‘Two Jacks’ starring Sienna Miller, Jack and Danny Huston).

Michelle has been a close friend for 13 years, and I know her to be a very reliable, trustworthy and responsible person. She has been teaching for several years now and takes a lot of care over tailoring her service to each student. She is a highly creative and communicative person having worked in theatre for her adult life, and cultivates a strong passion for arts and culture. I would recommend her as a tutor to anyone wanting to be tutored with rigour, and gently pushed outside of their comfort zone through creative activities.

I would 100% recommend Michelle as a tutor, having lived with her and hearing about how she talks about tutoring - and the passion she has for supporting the young people she works with - I would definitely send anyone needing this kind of support to her. She is professional and kind, and manages to make learning fun!
