Shereen Martin - Rada trained, professional actress (RSC, National, West End, Royal Court), offers one to one coaching for Drama school auditions, professional auditions and self tape practice.

Methodology

*Offering online self tape practice at a reduced rate for professional actors who want to use this time to improve their self taping techniques. I've been booked on many jobs just through a self tape and this has become the norm so it is essential to hone your technique. I provide scripts.*

I am a professional working actress who has been preparing students for drama school auditions for 8 years now. Previous students have gotten into the top drama schools. I also coach professional actors for auditions and self tape practice. My aim is to guide my students towards realising their full potential as actors. If you are looking to audition for the best schools, if you're a professional actor who needs a place to refine what you already know or you just want to learn the basics, get in touch.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

This past 12 months I have filmed a BBC series, a series for Amazon America and a Channel 5 series. Before that I was working on three different ITV series and an NBC/Universal pilot for America. I've worked in the West End, at the Royal Court Theatre, the National Theatre, the Donmar Warehouse, the Royal Shakespeare Company among many other theatres. I have worked extensively as an actress since leaving RADA in 2002 in theatre, television and film.

Here's a bit more detail but googling me will bring it all up..My first job was playing Juliet for Josie Rourke, the film director and recent artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse. I then went on to the RSC where I worked with Sean Holmes, artistic director of the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith. I have since worked at the National Theatre with director James MacDonald, an associate at the Royal Court until 2007, among others. I played Viola in Twlefth Night in the West End and then went on to work with multi award winning film director Peter Kosminsky on the BAFTA award winning 'Britz'. I've worked with Thea Sharrock, theatre and film director and have enjoyed parts in TV including The Salisbury Poisonings, Dublin Murders, The Feed, Blood, The Loch, Vera, Midsomer Murders, DCI Banks, Eastenders, Doctors, Lewis and several one off mini series for ITV and Channel 4.

Most importantly, and I cannot stress this enough, I teach alongside my work and therefore bring a wealth of current knowledge of the industry. I aim to pass on to my students what I've learned from my training at Rada, from the brilliant directors I've worked with and the hours of voice work I've done with some of the best voice coaches (Cicely Berry, John Barton, Jane Boston, my voice teacher when I was at Rada and who now runs the voice courses at Central and Jeanette Nelson, voice coach of the National Theatre).

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Upon request

- Where and with whom did you train?

Royal Academy of Dramatic Art

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Equity
Spotlight

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I'm currently teaching several acting students of varying ages, two who are auditioning next year for schools and wanted a head start, two are professional actors and we are doing self tape practice and another professional actor who lacks confidence when it comes to classical plays.

When I started working with Shereen, I had no idea of just how incredible the experience would be. Not only did she help me really unpack my chosen audition speeches, Shereen completely changed the way I approach and consider text. I've found that after working with Shereen, my appreciation and understanding of drama is exposed in a new light—something incredibly exhilarating and encouraging for an aspiring actor.

cont.Molly Wheaton

In the past I've found that my self-consciousness sometimes gets in the way of my work, but Shereen was able to tackle my hang-ups and teach me ways to overcome those fears, even to use them to add depth to my speeches.
Seeing Shereen made me excited to dig in deeper and do more work, to push myself beyond what I thought I was capable of—and every time I needed reassurance that I wasn't mad for wanting to be an actor, Shereen was there.

cont.Molly Wheaton

I cannot express just how much I appreciate her guidance and leadership, or her friendship. Not only did I leave Shereen having secured a place at LAMDA, I left with a greater understanding of myself, confidence to push myself, and a beloved mentor. I have no doubt that without Shereen's guidance I never would have gotten as far as I have, nor would I be so confident and eager to tackle the next chapter.

I approached Shereen through the Tutor Pages when applying for drama school requiring assistance on the two monologues I would perform at audition. She advised me on suitable audition pieces, and guided me through ways to pick ones out in the future...

..She then analysed the text in a way I previously had never seen done, explaining how to decipher thought patterns and the underlying issues of each speech.
She taught me breathing exercises which I now use whenever rehearsing, and have made my voice clearer and stronger.
On top of this she also made me feel confident in my abilities as a performer. I would recommend her to anyone.

Working with Shereen has been incredibly helpful. I've been able to identify both my strengths and weaknesses and find what methods work to bolster them. The support I've been given hasn't felt formulaic, but personal, and the work and exercises we do individualized. Yet I also feel that what I've accomplished is my own. I haven't been told exactly what to do, but been guided into making such discoveries that I might not have on my own.

Abby

...I went for help on preparing for auditions, choosing pieces, working on them, filling out applications, which I received wonderful support with, but I also feel I've grown as an actor. I don't feel just prepared for auditions, but more prepared for the actual prospect of drama school.

Shereen is the most inspiring, encouraging, talented and caring teacher that I have ever had. She takes a very supportive approach and has helped me to understand my strengths and weaknesses, encouraging me to challenge myself to develop into a more confident, self-assured and truthful actress...

c
cont..Hannah Powell

..In preparing for my drama school auditions, Shereen helped me to choose two suitable monologues. She takes a very holistic approach, so we worked on bringing the material to life through exploring the text and character through voice, physicality and imagination. Without Shereen's support I would have undoubtedly been too consumed by apprehension to apply to the top drama schools. I am so grateful to Shereen for always believing in me and I would recommend her to every aspiring actor.
