Speech and Drama & Public Speaking Tuition
For the last 16 years I have been in the very privileged position of tutoring adults and children of all ages and and nationalities — within the context of the LAMDA examination system, bespoke drama workshops, improvisation and voice workshops and also through teaching English as a foreign language through drama. I am also very proud to be an examiner for NEA (New Era Academy.)
The magic of seeing someones confidence grow is amazing! And this confidence, I believe, must always be allowed to flourish through the students own unique personality and ability.
