I am able to provide tailor-made tutoring to children aged 4 onwards, right through to adult acting.
My teaching is suitable for everyone, from first-time beginners, those wanting to grow in confidence, try something new and have some fun to those requiring acting coaching for specific auditions (I can even help you film your audition tape!) I took acting classes as a kid and have studied Drama and Media at GCSE, A Level all the way through to BA and MA so I have been in your shoes and can help you achieve your goals.
I am a Film Director and teacher based in London who is represented by Independent Talent and currently in development with BBC Films to direct my first feature film. I graduated with a MA in Directing Fiction from the National Film and Television School and studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for my BA.
I have a great deal of experience teaching Acting including to children aged 4 to 16 at the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy and at 360 Arts. I also have experience teaching Film and Television to children aged 5 to 18 at the Pauline Quirke Academy. I run private classes with individual students providing audition prep, coaching and filming audition tapes and also run group classes with up to 30 students.
Alongside this I have a lot of experience working professionally auditioning and directing children on set and have worked with children from 2 to 18 years. I teach Adult Acting at 360 Arts and have also directed a variety of professional actors in my films including acclaimed British Actress Sarah Parrish, Fiona O’Shaughnessy, Emmy award-winning actress Michelle Collins, Olivier award-winning actress Jill Halfpenny.
