Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will develop their Public Speaking skills by looking at their use of pace, pitch, pauses, passion, and punch. They will also be able to prepare and polish 5 speeches for any future competitions, festivals, or performances.
I am a fully qualified teacher (BAPA, PGCE) with 16+ years of experience teaching Drama (and Performing Arts, English, Music, and PSHCE (Personal Social Health Education) in bricks and mortar schools, where I currently still teach part-time, including running small group and 1:1 confidence-building workshops. I also have many years of experience leading community workshop schemes (like create a play in a week) and local drama groups for ages 4 to 16. 

As a professional actress, I've performed to children from ages 2-14 in theatres, arts centres, social clubs, historical properties,  nurseries, and schools. Playing roles such as the Gingerbread man and a tortoise, to a wartime headmistress and Queen Elizabeth the first! With lots of Q & A and interactive workshops along the way.

I then branched into presenting (live, events, radio, some TV, and for holiday companies across Europe) including some Voiceover work. I currently create and present drama and presenter tuition videos and have a regular podcast.

I have produced and directed many productions (musicals and plays) as well, including some I have written myself.

I am very experienced in coaching learners to produce their best performance, and I love seeing them develop in front of my eyes. Many of my ex-students have gone on to study at prestigious London stage schools in acting and directing, even though we are over 200 miles away, and they only take a small number from out of the catchment area each year. Previous learners have achieved several A+ grades in a speech and drama festival, top grades in a session of 20, and a Bronze overall against native speakers, second round of a national competition. I have also coached learners on all different levels, like one who didn't wish to speak when I started working with him (aged 10) but he ended up playing the lead role in his final year production (aged 15).
Learners have the option to work on each speech between classes to memorise it and work further to deliver/perform it better for feedback in their next class or via an uploaded video to the classroom.
I highly recommend learners purchase their own copy of the book we are using so they can choose which monologues they would like to use, carry on rehearsing after class and find more to work on but I can provide copies of speeches if needs be: 'Monologues for Kids and Tweens' by Mike Kimmel- ISBN 9780998151328 OR 'Monologues for Kids and Tweens II' by Mike Kimmel- ISBN 9781953057037 OR for older learners 'Monologues for Teens' by Mike Kimmel- ISBN 9780998151311 OR 'Monologues for Teens II' by Mike Kimmel- ISBN 9781953057006
Learners will receive instant constructive feedback during class and regular written feedback and a re-cap after each class.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
