« My daughter, age 15, had drama lessons with Kirsty for a year to prepare her for auditions. Kirsty rehearsed modern monologues and Shakespeare in fun and innovative ways. Grace loved her lessons and always came away from the classes excited about what she had done and looking forward to the next lesson. Grace’s confidence grew dramatically as a result of these lessons and we found Kirsty to be an honest and trustworthy teacher. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty or starting lessons with her again if she was back in the UK. F Carroll, London »

I taylor specific workshops or lessons for individuals or groups, specialising in Shakespeare/ Improvisation/ Ensemble Theatre/ Audition Prep/ English Dialect Coaching/ Voice and Text/ Acting - depending on the goals and aims of my students. I have worked extensively as an actress and coach and love helping people to improve their skill set and build up their confidence.

My daughter, age 15, had drama lessons with Kirsty for a year to prepare her for auditions.

Kirsty rehearsed modern monologues and Shakespeare in fun and innovative ways. Grace loved her lessons and always came away from the classes excited about what she had done and looking forward to the next lesson.

Grace’s confidence grew dramatically as a result of these lessons and we found Kirsty to be an honest and trustworthy teacher.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty or starting lessons with her again if she was back in the UK.

Kirsty is amazing teacher and is very reliable with her work. Kirsty is very friendly and has a real passion for her students to achieve their best. Kirsty teaching methods and planning are great. She was my drama tutor and I managed to pass in college because of her enthusiasm and variety in her teaching.

Anja

Kirsty has a wonderful teaching manner. She taught our son English. He felt motivated to do better, studied more under her expert guidance and moved up a set in class.

Kirsty also provided improvisation theatre and acting classes to us as a family of four. I cannot recommend this highly enough to any family who wants to explore creativity and expression together - none of us did any acting otherwise but Kirsty had a real knack at making as all feel comfortable and be creative together. We had so much fun! We all miss Kirsty and her lessons!

Damon

Kirsty is a close professional colleague and I couldn't recommend her more as a coach and teacher. She is an absolute delight to be in the room with as her command and joy are in equal measure. Kirsty bursts with creativity and love and as an artist who has performed on top stages all over the world, her depth and savvy are undeniable. Any student regardless of age and experience would be truly lucky to share time with such a generous and brilliant human!

Leslie

Kirsty has been brilliant in teaching my daughter and has been instrumental in Matilda achieving so much. The lessons were in her parents’ house and I had the pleasure of meeting them when I would pick her up. Kirsty is much more than a ‘trustworthy teacher’ she became my daughter's confidant and mentor plus still keeps in contact today.
