Being brought up in Coventry, I'd never had imagined that one day I could speak Standard English so convincingly. Rachel's teaching is faultless & she made learning Standard English a lot easier than I'd anticipated! I highly recommend her.

“Rachel is one of the most positive, productive, energetic and enthusiastic teachers it has been my pleasure to know.”

Rachel taught me how to speak Standard English – I am South African. She is very motivating; recognizes what you need to work on & works conscientiously with you to achieve this. She gave me fantastic advice & direction: I gained acting jobs

I come from Georgia and went to Rachel to improve my English accent. I am delighted with the results and feel I now communicate much more effectively. I strongly recommend her. Lika Chambers, Conference Manager, in the City.

Rachel is an amazing dialect and accent coach. For example for South African she will offer you 4 different dialects and research another if you need it! She is a natural mimic, so no accent is too difficult and she then analyses it and dissects it to teach you – and it works! Reliable every time, even at short notice, Rachel has helped me many times and I consider her to be the best dialect coach in London.

Matthew

“Rachel is the most inspiring teacher I have ever worked with. Without Rachel I would never have gained my place at the Bristol Old Vic. I achieved things in my acting work I never thought possible thanks to her. She gave me confidence & skills in acting I will never forget and will carry for the rest of my life & use in all my professional acting work.”

S
Sophia

“Rachel is an amazing teacher: she boosted my confidence; pushed me to follow my dream of being a singer; and coached me for interviews & auditions. I got into my top choice university, Oxford Brookes, because of her.” Sophia Ackermans

K

“Without Rachel's expert tuition I wouldn't have got into my preferred drama school – Bristol Old Vic.” Kate Bunten

Joanna

“I have no doubt without Rachel's support I would not have been accepted with full scholarship to Guildford School of Acting. She is a great teacher: supportive artistically & practically.”

Talullah Sheffield

“Rachel fulfilled my dream of going to the USA to study at AADA & has since helped me with countless auditions. She explores the text & character in great depth and I recommend her warmly to you.”
