Devesh - Professional Actor
« I have worked with Jo extensively, preparing for TV, Theatre and Film auditions. Jo's approach creates a warm, comfortable and safe environment in which I feel confident to explore, play and discover. Jo has a wonderful instinct for acting and text has proved insightful and knowledgeable on the most challenging of scripts including Shakespeare, where time and time again her advice and notes have been corroborated in the audition room. The time I have spent with Jo has been so rewarding and fun. »

Joanne - Professional West End Actress - Drama & Acting Coach - South West London & Central London

Methodology

I am a professional actress with experience of teaching all ages and levels. Whether you want to pursue acting as a professional career or you want to gain confidence through Drama, I will tailor each lesson to suit your requirements.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Drama and Acting. I help students prepare for drama school auditions as well as LAMDA examinations.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied Theatre Studies, Music and English at A-Level and following this I trained on the Three Year Professional Acting course at LAMDA.

- How much do you charge?

Private tuition is £35 an hour, or £45 for 1.5 hours. I am happy to travel to you. Please get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home in Wandsworth. South-West London, Southfields, Wimbledon, Central London

- When are you available?

As a working actress, my schedule is flexible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I have lots of experience teaching all ages and all levels. My lessons are fun, tailored to your needs and productive - we will achieve a lot in your session.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I do believe that face-to-face tutoring has the most benefits, however I would be happy to teach over Skype. I am currently working with several students (some internationally) via Skype - it works well for different time zones and can be very convenient if you can't make a lesson in person. Please get in touch to discuss options.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Since graduating I have worked professionally in Theatre, Film, Radio and Voiceover. For the past year, I have been working in the West End. As well as this, I am incredibly experienced in tutoring Drama, Theatre Studies and Audition Technique.
In the past I have worked at a prestigious drama school teaching acting classes with particular focus on Shakespearean plays and classical texts. I have a wealth of experience teaching children from the ages of 2 years to 18 with particular focus on Drama and Music. I work with adults preparing for drama school auditions and also with professional actors, assisting them with audition prep and self tapes. As well as this, I have coached adults in public speaking and presentation technique.

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

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained on the three year course at LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Drama Art).

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I belong to Spotlight, Equity and the Musician's Union.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am currently working with many students, helping them prepare for their Drama School auditions. We are working on Shakespeare and Jacobean pieces, as well as contemporary monologues. A few of my students are currently preparing for their recalls for the top Drama Schools.

I have also been working with a recent Drama School graduate, assisting them with their auditions and I'm delighted that they have already secured two big Theatre roles within two months of graduating.

I am also currently working with a 12 year old student who is preparing for his drama scholarship exam for a top public school.

It is all very varied and of course, fun!

Devesh - Professional Actor

I have worked with Jo extensively, preparing for TV, Theatre and Film auditions. Jo's approach creates a warm, comfortable and safe environment in which I feel confident to explore, play and discover. Jo has a wonderful instinct for acting and text has proved insightful and knowledgeable on the most challenging of scripts including Shakespeare, where time and time again her advice and notes have been corroborated in the audition room. The time I have spent with Jo has been so rewarding and fun.

I've had the pleasure of working with Jo for a year & couldn't be happier that I found her. She tailors each lesson specifically to your needs and is able to pinpoint the things that need focusing on. Jo is fiercely passionate about what she does & has so much to offer each individual student. It doesn't hurt that she graduated from LAMDA as well! I've grown so much as an actor & feel confident that I am able to tackle anything, both from the business perspective of acting as well as artistically

M
Mother of Drama Student, Aristou (Aged 11)

Jo helped our son prepare for drama scholarships at two top Independent schools- we are delighted to say he was offered scholarships by both. Jo was incredibly kind & patient & did a great job of adjusting her lessons to suit our son and really work on his particular areas of difficulty. He loved going to lessons with her & she really helped him find his voice as he is quite timid in every day life. We have no hesitation at all in recommending Jo and our son is keen to work with her again!

Natalie

I have really enjoyed working with Jo, she has taught me so much and made me feel so confident in preparation for my audition! I looked forward to my sessions with her as I always came out feeling excited and that I had achieved a lot. Jo is so passionate (especially about Shakespeare!), she inspires me. She is a brilliant coach and made me feel completely at ease. I would recommend her to anyone!
