Sometimes silly and always creative, I provide fun, focused classes that take their roots from a broad range of international practices. Having trained in a largely physical way, as both an actor and theatre-maker, my teaching methods involve connecting to your body and voice, in order to then connect with your character. I encourage focused breathing, building of a character body and exploration of self when approaching texts. Once we know how a character truly feels, both in what they say, and what they do, we are able to access a far greater level of truth in performance. Together, we would work to unpick the truth behind every word and every action, finding interesting choices and helping you to offer polished, confident and truly creative performances. And I try to keep the mood playful! If we can find the joy, the good work takes care of itself!

Perfect! Anna is very understanding and kind, she really helped me to open up and find out what my strengths were. I’m liking forward to working with her in the future.
I had a lovely time working with Rio for this first class. She was attentive, positive and really engaged with the session's content. I would absolutely love to work with her again.
Perfect! Only the 1st lesson but very positive experience for my daughter !
It was such a pleasure to work with Rachel's daughter Riva. She worked with real commitment and made exceptional progress for such a short class. A delight to spend the time with!
Perfect! Really enjoyed Anna's class!
I had a lovely lesson with Ellie. She was enthusiastic and worked hard, quickly finding varied tones for expression. I am looking forward to working further with her!
Anna has a wonderful empathy and kind nature, combined with academic excellence she makes a great tutor. She is creative and dedicated to adapting her teaching to suit individual needs.
Anna is a compassionate, attentive person who is affable and very friendly. She has qualities that make her an excellent tutor, such as her impeccable organisational skills and commitment, as well as her enthusiastic and approachable personality. I would recommend Anna to anyone, due to her extensive knowledge and her ability to make learning enjoyable and worthwhile.
Throughout my stay in London, Anna has been extremely helpful in overcoming both my written and oral difficulties with the english language. Throughout my academic writings, Anna has guided me with regard to both grammar and ways of manipulating the formal british language. I would like to add with with the help of Anna I have received excellent grades with little to no remark towards the linguistical aspects.
I've been so lucky as to have Anna as my tutor. Given that English is my second language I’ve had some challenges, but after Anna’s help I feel so much more confident in the English language. She has been patient and trustful, and is very capable of communicating constructive criticism politely and effectively. Her lovely energy and good sense of humour have made it a joy, and she’s always been extremely helpful if I’ve needed some last minute help. I can not recommend her enough.
Anna is an extremely competent and confident tutor who is amazing at connecting with her pupils, and explaining complex ideas by breaking them down into simple and understandable parts. Couldn't recommend enough!
