About the lesson
As an actress currently working in the industry, I have accumulated a span of different skills and knowledge which enables me to specifically tailor each session to every person I work with.
Specialist areas include: audition prep; how to self-tape; how to audition for drama school, commercials, TV and film and theatre; memorisation techniques; RP accent work; how to approach acting agents; how to get auditions; how to set up an acting profile; confidence coaching; presenting skills.
I love coaching as I feel confident that I can get amazing performances out of the people I work with when we focus on the right areas they need to work on.
Each client is unique and will require an individual approach depending on their specific needs. This can include physical work, voice work, textual analysis and more.

"She is a truly committed actress, showing both a talent for character parts and easy connection with the truth.” Jessica Swale (Globe, Summerland, Leading Lady Parts)
“She reminds me of a young Katherine Parkinson. She is a strong actress with a particular flair for comedy.” Vicky Wildman (CDG)
I am a professionally trained actress (Mountview); multi-award winner; long-form improviser (Comedy Central discovered) with 2 monthly shows and invitations to perform at venues such as The Free Association and Hoopla; and star of BBC Three's viral sketch, ‘Breaking up with a Remoaner’.
I have worked with directors including Jessica Swale (Globe, ‘Summerland’,‘Leading Lady Parts’), Jake Smith (‘The Height of the Storm’, Wyndham, Almeida), Max Key (Trafalgar Studios, Lyric), Dipak Patel (BBC, Comedy Central), Ian Nicholson (Nuffield Southampton) and Amy Liptrott (Pitlochry Festival Theatre).
I also have a degree in English and write for screen, stage and radio. My short film ‘Health Kick’ won Best Short Film, Best Comedy and Audience Choice Award. I have written, produced and performed multiple plays for VAULT Festival, Edinburgh Festival, Women in the West End (Arts Theatre) and The Rosemary Branch Theatre. I have also worked closely with film producer Julia Verdin (‘Two Jacks’ starring Sienna Miller, Jack and Danny Huston).

Perfect! I had a few lessons with Michelle to learn how to be more assertive in a professional context. Her tips are always helpful and make me approach situtations in a new way. Definitely recommend.
- Michelle's response : Great start - I'm sure we can make progress! Susanne was open and communicative and a pleasure to teach.
Perfect! Michelle was great with my little boy. We were focusing on comedy and improvisation (having seen and enjoyed her showreel) and that’s not easy with just two people, especially when one of them is a ten year old. Rather than simply play games, she took time to get to know him and then also gave the methodology and reason for the games, which is really important for my boy. He found it the right level of challenging and thoroughly enjoyed it. Michelle really knows her stuff and can translate that easily into personalised lessons. Highly recommended
- Michelle's response : Good listening skills, great energy.

Michelle is a wonderful teacher. I think she is the right tutor who can help me to soften my accents, I look forward to achieve my goal under her guidance.
Michelle is a wonderful tutor, she has a very nice personality and easily hits it off with kids. She tutored my daughter for her English GCSEs which resulted in an A grade at the actual exam with an initial D predicted. I would certainly recommend Michelle as an English and English literature tutor, especially to those kids who need to be brought up 2 or 3 grades.
Michelle has been a close friend for 13 years, and I know her to be a very reliable, trustworthy and responsible person. She has been teaching for several years now and takes a lot of care over tailoring her service to each student. She is a highly creative and communicative person having worked in theatre for her adult life, and cultivates a strong passion for arts and culture. I would recommend her as a tutor to anyone wanting to be tutored with rigour, and gently pushed outside of their comfort zone through creative activities.
I would 100% recommend Michelle as a tutor, having lived with her and hearing about how she talks about tutoring - and the passion she has for supporting the young people she works with - I would definitely send anyone needing this kind of support to her. She is professional and kind, and manages to make learning fun!
