Methodology

I take great pride in seeing the growth in confidence of young people as they develop into very capable performers and public speakers. I believe learning should be fun and work towards making lessons an enjoyable experience, whilst also incorporating a great sense of achievement and success. The results my students have achieved in LAMDA speech and drama exams reflect my good teaching ability, communication and interpersonal skills. These results also reflect my enjoyment of working with young people and seeing them flourish in their public speaking abilities, and as confident young individuals.

My specialist expertise has been in Lamda Speech and Drama exams for the last ten years, which includes modules on Acting, Public Speaking, Verse and Prose, Reading for Performance and Shakespeare, entering students into Lamda exams, leading to recognised Lamda qualifications.

I have Implemented and built new Lamda Speech and Drama classes at 2 schools into regular, popular, oversubscribed classes. I have also showcased annual work in schools for parents. I can quickly establish a positive rapport with students.

Having worked in the field of drama as a professional actor myself, I have the ability to prepare students for auditions for professional stage and television projects, and for entry to conservatoire training. I have a strong knowledge of audition techniques and audition pieces and different audition scenarios and believe I can support students to a high level.
