Letty - Barnes - School English

Methodology

I believe that a good teacher can be life-changing. I love my subjects and find the process of awakening the same passion, understanding and enthusiasm in my students very rewarding.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

My main focus is preparing students for Drama School Auditions. This includes helping students select the most suitable speeches, detailed analysis of its context within the play, voice and breath work, grounding techniques and practical exercises that will help control those nerves on the day and ensure you give the your best possible audition. I teach English Literature and Drama all the way up to degree level. I also now offer practical, tailored advice on how to acquire an agent as I have worked as an Agent's PA (when resting!) for nearly ten years.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

1st Class Degree in Acting from LAMDA.
Joint Honours Degree (2:1) in English Literature and Drama from The University of Leeds.
4 A Levels: English Literature (A), History (A), Art (A), General Studies (B)
10 GCSEs: 7A*, 3A

- How much do you charge?

I am very happy to discuss discounts for group sessions and negotiate a price that suits all. I do charge for travel.

- Where do you teach?

I am based in Barnes and usually teach from here. However, I am flexible and willing to travel to surrounding areas (Putney, Richmond, Kingston, Hammersmith, Sheen etc). I also have a base in Central London (on The Strand, Charing Cross) that I can use for evening tutorials or at weekends.

- When are you available?

I teach Monday to Saturday in the daytime and evenings. I am happy to teach during school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and stages!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

A Levels, GCSE, Key Stages 1-3 depending on subjects required. Drama School Entry. Auditions in general.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Everyone is different and I think that is something to be celebrated. As a tutor, my starting point is always my pupil: I want to work out the most interesting, effective and fun method of teaching that is unique to each student. The tutor/pupil relationship should be symbiotic - I am not here to lecture you or bore you to tears! I want to bring subjects to life and offer a fresh perspective to what you may get at school. Drama, English and History are subjetcs to be prodded and challenged and questioned, not merely accepted. I want to find out what YOU think and help you express your opinions confidently and creatively. It is all about you!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I supply teach regularly from ages 3-18 alongside my tutoring work. I have successfully coached four hopefuls into top London Drama Schools (RADA, LAMDA twice and Guildhall), am a Theatre Director and Workshop Leader. I have strong credits for both theatre and film: I currently play Headmistress Miss MacCauley in CBBC series Young Dracula. Other credits include New Tricks, Parade's End, Jane Eyre and Murder on the Homefront all for the BBC. Theatre includes The Print Room, RSC, Lyric Hammersmith and York Theatre Royal. I have a working knowledge of the business. When I am not acting, I work for The Markham Agency and PHPM on The Strand, so have a real insight into all aspects of the acting profession, which is particularly helpful when tutoring for audition speeches or drama school applications.

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

I do!

- Where and with whom did you train?

LAMDA BA Acting (2007-9)
University of Leeds BA Joint Honours in English Literature and Theatre (2002-5)
Agent's PA to John Markham of The Markham Agency and Philippa Howell of PHPM (for ten years collectively)

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of Equity, Spotlight and Casting Call Pro.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have recently returned to tutoring following a year off, so I am starting afresh. One of my previous pupils, who loathed Shakespeare when we met, is about to play Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing in her upcoming Drama School production! I have successfully helped four students get into LAMDA, RADA and Guildhall.
