If you are looking for a drama group that includes LAMDA as an additional activity I teach for Stagecoach Amersham (Our Lady's School, Chesham Bois) so feel free to ask about that. Our Further Stages group is for 15 - 19 year olds including working towards the Bronze, Silver and Gold LAMDA exams which hold UCAS points.

I currently have slots of Monday and Tuesday after school for Lamda - in addition I have some day time availability for young adults/adults auditioning for drama schools.

I currently teach 5 year olds - adults
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
LAMDA drama exams from Introductory level up to Grade 8 (Bronze Silver and Gold hold UCAS points).
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I have yet to start this as there's been no demand and seeing the person performing live in front of you is so important but I can of course offer consulting sessions on Drama school auditions such as piece/song choices and how to write a personal statement as it's quite different one you'd write for UCAS.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I am happy to help with everything from the fear of being passed the book to read aloud from in class to coaching an important speech or drama piece. I can also advise on musical theatre audition songs.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Miranda will plan your first lesson with care.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching for 'Stagecoach' Amersham for 8 years. In the past I have also taught for Gerrards Cross based, 'Vocal Performance Academy' and as an after school drama club teacher for 'Flip Theatre Arts' in Watford and for BOO in St Albans.
I have been coaching LAMDA exams privately and through Stagecoach throughout this time with an incredible rate achieving high merits and distinctions. With 'Vocal Performance Academy', I have coached students taking Musical Theatre exams as well as auditions for school and amateur productions.
My students have gone onto attending further training at bodies such as: Italia Conti, Millenium Dance, Performers College and various University drama courses.

- Tell me about some of your current students.
We just had 46 students at Stagecoach Amersham achieve fantastic LAMDA results plus I've seen improvements in technique and confidence in class - it's not just about the mark but about the process.
I have helped several students achieve scholarships at Pipers Corner and Berkhamstead School.
An interesting thing to note is that one of my LAMDA students went on to University to study Law, a subject she found she was seen for because of LAMDA being on her CV.
I come to you. If you are Amersham based: 30 mins solo: £15, 45 mins solo £20, 60 mins £25.
A small amount of travel will be added for further afield - please let me know where you are based when enquiring so I can give an accurate quote.
I am a professional actress with training from GSA and Bretton Hall and I now make a living as a professional actor and singer as well as teaching students privately and with Stagecoach Amersham and Thame.
I have 8 years of experience of LAMDA exams with an incredibly high park/mark rate.
I always encourage children and young people to think for themselves from choosing their own pieces from my selection and finding ways to voice why that piece appeals to them to analysing characters' motives and speech. Drama should open you out as a person and increase critical and emotional thinking - vital for for communication in any job.
Miranda is an excellent drama teacher! She really built my confidence in performing solo, giving me constant constructive criticism, and giving lots of helpful advice on where I could improve but also making me feel confident enough to experiment with a variety of different techniques! Miranda is a very passionate teacher and was one of the people who inspired me to take theatre/drama/acting further and pursue a career in which drama is involved. Highly recommend!
