Learn with an award winning actress/director - Actors studio methods for authenticity

Methodology

(concealed information)

The training of an actor is a lifetimes work and vocation. It should be the same as the athlete, dancer or pianist-they all have to practice their unique disciplines. Acting in London can be a lonely business. You need peers, a network, an agent and classes.
I offer a supportive network and services to help each individual actor.I train actors individually or in pairs/and groups if they wish. I cater the session to each individual need from Drama school entry monologues or to TV/Film/Theatre roles.
I am an award winning actress and director with 20 years knowledge and experience.
I am the winner of The Evening Standard Theatre award selected and mentored by Sir Richard Attenborough and also hold an Acting degree from The Rose Bruford Drama College- past students include Gary Oldman & Lake Bell.

My directing credits include and not limited to:-
- HG Wells' 'The Crystal Egg' at The VAULTS in Waterloo.
-Canal Cafe Theatre
-Union Theatre



My approach :- I work with the Actress/Actor to respond quickly and fully to everything in an effort to create reality and truth as well as spontaneity in performance for stage or film.

I help with auditions as well as camera work and self tapes. you will learn sense memory work/Self tape sessions if required/Sight reading skills/Scene and script breakdown/Monologues and audition technique and BEING REAL IN ANY GIVEN ROLE.

I would start by assessing you in the first session based on a monologue.

See below a few testimonials. Feel free to contact me if you are keen.

Best Elif

"She couldn't be nicer and more professional during the recording of the self-tape, not only that, she gave me great tips and advice and made me feel very relaxed - I actually booked the part!!

Best self-tape team I can think of in London (actress and director, what else do you need?) I wouldn't doubt asking for their help again"

Jorge Suquet, Actor

​"I almost always get call backs on any audition I've prepared or taped with Elif. She is very professional, dedicated to her work and knowledgable; she truly takes the time to dissect scenes and to understand the character. She also always offer invaluable advice and follows up to see how I performed on my audition... I highly recommend working with her."

Razane Jammal, Actress

​"Working with Elif is wonderful. She knows exactly how to help me get out of my own way and get to my truth. She knows exactly how to get to me and taught me how to use everything that is physically real around me and happening in the moment as a tool to the scene which makes every moment truthful and not fabricated. She also makes the environment very safe therefore I can be brave with my decisions and trust my instinct. It really is a bliss to be taught by her."

Morgane Polanski, Actress

I met Elif in August whilst attending drama school to improve my skills, gain representation and combat my stage fright. Elif was very nurturing and went above beyond in many ways. One thing I value about Elif is her honesty. I’ve been successful in securing representation, combating stage fright and securing my first Job ,‘ The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams’. Elif helped me prepare for my auditions for the afore mentioned play, not just acting tips but script break down and selfing taping for auditions. Thank you Elif.

Salomé

Elif is such a great teacher, she’s very motivated to help you and she will give you the best advice to train to be the best actress than you can be.

K
Kajal

Elif is very kind, supportive and encouraging. She is also very patient and understanding. She has taught me a lot in acting and I have improved my confidence a lot. Every sesssion is different from the last. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a career in the tv/movie industry.

Cecile

Elif is a wonderful kind soul !
She provides a safe environment to discover areas of your imagination you haven’t dare go into as well as pushing you with scripts, monologues or anything you want to selftape.

Teja

Elif is one of the best actresses that I have met in my life. She helped me with my auditions and I strongly believe I got a place at the acting academy in London because of the knowledge of acting that I have gained from training with her.
Her approach is very professional yet friendly. She gives a lot of homework and material to work on which is extremely helpful for a student and she genuinely cares about her students. I can not recommend her highly enough.

Natalya

Elif has been tutoring me weekly for over 6 months. I can't recommend her highly enough!! She has taught me such a mixture of invaluable things and tools from a range of techniques that have changed my acting forever. Elif has such a wealth of knowledge and skills and is so lovely, kind and fun to work with!

Elif is a fantastic tutor, I have been working with her for the past 6 months and have gained so much from every session.
She is patient, enthusiastic, encouraging and inspiring. I have really furthered my craft and have even booked professional jobs since starting sessions with Elif. I fully recommend her to others!
