Head of Creative Arts, RSC, Shakespeare'Globe, Royal Court Actor. Award Winning Screenwriter and Director. GCSE & 'A' Level Theatre and Film Studies Teacher

Methodology

My wealth of hands-on professional experience helps me to create a dynamic personal experience. By using all the skills and techniques I have acquired over many years, I am able to inspire pupils to discover a genuine enthusiasm for the material they are studying. I approach play texts using the same methods I was taught in the professional theatre, motivating students to embrace the world of each play, so that they develop their own ideas and unique interpretations.

East 15 trained (sponsored by Albert Finney) Available for drama school entrance tutoring, LAMDA exams and GCSE and 'A' Level examinations. Based in Sevenoaks, Kent.

Enhanced DBS (CRB) checked.

Experience

I performed as a professional actress for over twenty years, which included two years at the Royal Shakespeare Company, productions at the Royal Court and Shakespeare’s Globe.

I have performed in many Katie Mitchell productions and in three series of the BAFTA winning children’s drama Maid Marion and Her Merry Men (Rotten Rose) and have also performed in most British television soaps.

I am a seasoned teacher who now work full time as Head of Creative Arts at and Independent school where I teach GCSE and 'A' Level Theatre studies as well Film Studies with excellent results. I continue to write, direct and produce short films and documentaries. My first screenplay, Monica Ol’e, was the winner of the Women in Film & Television & Avalon Productions Screen-Writing Award and was made into a feature film.

Miss fogarty was one of the best teachers I had. I always looked forward to drama class as they were fun and enjoyable and she was enthusiastic all the time. She was always there to help with any problems I had, and helped me grow my confidence greatly. Miss fogarty put her heart and soul into teaching and inspiring people to be creative. Some of the best moments of my teenage years were onstage as part of the plays that she directed in after school drama classes, in particular I loved her version of our house with music from madness.
I learned alot from miss fogarty, from script writing to acting techniques and directing a show, I'm very happy to have been one of her students! Thanks to her I am now acting in my own films and doing live music and horror theatre.

Siobhan is a natural teacher. She has a unique ability to devise imaginative, dynamic lessons for her students who will both have fun and learn in her classes. Siobhan was previously my head of department - she guided me through my teacher training with such care and attention, ensuring that I was fully supported, and I learnt a lot from her. She inspired confidence in my ability, just as she does with her students. I often observed Siobhan's classes - and also taught alongside her in a drama youth group she ran, so I could see first hand just how respected she was by her students. It is clear she loves teaching and works tirelessly to create differentiated and interesting lesson plans. She is an excellent tutor who cares about her students' well-being and education. I cannot recommend highly enough!

Siobhan is lovely and kind. She has always made my daughter feel very welcome when she first started doing drama and has always given her great advice and support. She always has lots of good ideas and games to play to help the children develop. I would highly recommend Siobhan.

I met Siobhan when she was playing Rotten Rose in the BBC series Maid Marion and her Merry Men quite a few years ago now. She was dynamic, funny and smart then and still is today! She was an imaginative and committed actor and brings those qualities to the classroom as a teacher of both drama and film with years of experience. Her classes are never formal, dull or dry. She gets the best out of people with her infectious enthusiasm and love of life. She invests fully in what she does and will tutor in such a way that will make it both a fun and fulfilling experience. I’ve been an actor for many years, if I was starting out now I can think of no-one better to teach me drama than Siobhan.

Lucie

Siobhan is a great teacher, always helpful and enthusiastic, also she is honest and forthright with her constructive feedback and encouragement. She is always able to push her students to achieve more than they realise they can. My son thoroughly enjoys his lessons with her. He has ASD and ADD and her confident style strikes a positive chord with him.
