Professional Theatre Director offering One-To-One coaching in Reading and the surrounding areas

Methodology

My approach to teaching is encouraging and enthusiastic. I want you to feel confident in your abilities and help you feel at ease with the material. Whether you want to improve confidence in public speaking, acting technique or wish for feedback on drama school monologues and acting through song.
I teach ages 15+ and hold an Enhanced DBS certificate.

Background

I have been a professional theatre director since 2014, before which I trained and worked as a performer in acting and in musical theatre.
My directing work has encompassed classical theatre and new writing at venues such as Southwark Playhouse, Salisbury Playhouse, Bunker Theatre as well as open air tours.
I have been working with children and young people over the last year with Corn Exchange, Newbury, Berkshire Theatre School and Identity School of Acting. I have also directed students at Drama Studio London in their 'Shakespeare Unscenes' project.

Jaclyn's response

Gabby, was a lovely student, enthusiastic and willing to learn.
She was nervous to begin with but settled into the session and worked hard.
We worked well together and have set up further coaching sessions.

Caroline

I have been directed by Jaclyn a couple of times and she is brilliant. She is knowledgeable, encouraging, patient and full of ideas but she also listens and takes on board what the actor has to say. I learnt so much whilst working with her and my confidence as an actor has grown each time. If I needed help with a speech or role for any reason I would certainly give her a call and I would absolutely recommend her as a tutor.

Tanya

I worked with Jaclyn for 2 years and she was always full of energy and fun to work with. She was always supportive and taught in a positive manner. Very likeable and approachable.

T
Turan

Jaclyn knows her stuff. She’s friendly and approachable and is fantastic at building your self esteem. I didn’t have much faith in my abilities until I worked with Jaclyn. She put me at ease, boosted my confidence and really helped guide me though. She’s an absolute gem!
