Scarborough based Drama and Theatre teacher offering private and group classes for GCSE, A Level, drama school entrance and Stage Combat

Methodology

My teaching methods are very flexible and adaptable to the student.

I have tried and tested rubrics and structures for exam work and coursework at GCSE and A Level.

When working with individuals on monologues I work on vocal delivery, experimental performance and characterisation.

With group classes I can offer structured work on Stage Combat skills or offer a choreography based lesson to prepare for a particular performance.

Background

I am a qualified drama teacher in secondary schools and a specialist in armed and unarmed Stage Combat. I can offer lessons to help with GCSE and A Level exam prep and coursework as well as private and group Acting lessons to prepare for drama school auditions, voice and movement work and confidence building.

Hayley

An absolutely astounding teacher. Totally dedicated and knowledgeable. Consistent and hard-working, Melissa is a teacher who can confidently direct and lead a student in education.

I trained with Melissa and worked in schools closely with her for 2 years and have seen first hand her relationships with students and the specialist knowledge she has access to.

Mj

I have known Melissa for almost a decade now and have worked with her several projects, she brings a great energy and sense of fun to whatever she turns her hand to. One of the most talented and smartest actors and teachers I have ever met, highly recommended as an artist, a teacher and a person.
