Mark - Highams Park - Personal coaching

Methodology

Hello, I am an Actor & Public Speaking/Confidence Building Coach. A highly experienced Theatre Practitioner with extensive teaching experience. I can take you through both academic and practical workshops to ensure you reach your full potential.

I tutor in the following: Public Speaking & Confidence Building /Presentation Skills /Job Interview Techniques /Audition Techniques for Drama School & University entrance /Drama & Acting: GCSE./BTEC / AS & A2/ HND & Degree. Essay writing, Proof Reading, Study Skills and LAMDA EXAMS.

I can support you to effectively prepare for both: Job interviews, I have worked with students on their all important personal UCAS Statement. Besides supporting students with their exams.

I tutor those who are looking to develop their practical skills, and build up their personal confidence, use of effective voice, articulation, intonation, preparing for interviews and public speaking skills.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Masters Degree in Acting, and a BA (Hons) degree in Theatre Studies & contemporary theatre. I attended Drama School in London and so understand the pressures in trying to secure a place through audition.

I have my own theatre/training company 'Take A Breath Productions'. I have an extensive professional performance background in theatre as a professional actor, as well as within an educational setting, where I have taught in numerous FE colleges, universities and drama schools as a visiting lecturer.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40.00 per hour for all the various work that I offer (this includes travel). I am happy to support for an hour and a half where I would only charge £60.00

I can offer discounts for multiple bookings. I am willing to travel to a student's home within the central London area or outside London by arrangement.

- Where do you teach?

Anywhere in Central London,

I am currently supporting students in Redbridge, and Kings Cross, the clients that I am working with currently are preparing for auditions, Lamda exams.

- When are you available?

Monday-Friday during school term. *Out of term time at special request*

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All Ages / All abilities regardless of experience

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for GCSE, A level and University Degree & Drama School Auditions. I also coach students who are looking to develop their personal confidence and speaking skills.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I find that working face to face achieves the best results, so I do not Skype (Sorry!)

- Do you have a personal message for students?

We all learn differently. I believe that the importance of a tutor is to facilitate personal education in a logical and consistent manner. As a tutor, I aim to motivate individuals to excel in whatever capacity I am working with them. I am highly passionate about learning and I try to instil a similar view towards learning from my students, which often motivates them to work harder for the correct reasons; in effect for their own success. I consider daily discipline to be essential, but to approach studying in an energetic and youthful manner is also a valuable way for individuals to connect to their work and be much more effective altogether.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page!

I cannot recommend Mark enough! from the outset he instilled a sense of confidence in my daughter that inspired her to believe in herself as an actor, even though she does not come from a drama background. Mark empowered my daughter-allowing her to feel a strong connection with her monologues; he elicited a personal response to the characters' plight/provided worksheets & allowed her to explore the characters emotions/motivations in greater depth-SHE WAS SUCCESSFUL AT THE AUDITION-Thank You.

Mark Spillane not only inspired me to go on to university, he did something more, he helped me see what I wanted to do with my future, which is to become a drama therapist. It just goes to show that with the right support and generally caring about your students, how one person can inspire me to help other people for the rest of my life. I can never thank Mark Spillane enough for the help and support I received from him to get me into university.
