Teaching

fun and engaging drama facilitation from early years to teens

I’m a die-hard believer that experiences gained through drama increase confidence, creativity and empathy in all aspects of life, and going to a drama class should not just be about developing skills for a career in the performing arts.

 

My aim is that children come away from my classes having had fun, expressed themselves creatively, and pushed the boundaries of what they believed they could do.


I have an enhanced DBS, chaperone licence and am based in Newbury, Berkshire. I also regularly teach in London.

 

Do get in touch to discuss your specific requirements, I’d love to have a chat.

a bit of what I do
Children and Teacher in Kindergarten_edi

Drama for nursery and primary children

I am particularly good at engaging young audiences, teaching them with warmth and humour. I have a wealth of experience teaching drama in nurseries, after school clubs and holiday camps.

Educational workshops

I am an accomplished presenter and can make (almost!) any subject fun. I have excellent classroom management skills and can explain complicated ideas clearly to younger audiences. I have delivered workshops on a whole host of subjects - from Saxon London to modern slavery to life skills.

Audition preparation

Preparing for drama school or need some help with auditioning? I've been taught by some of the best in the business and I love passing the craft on. I can help with monologue coaching or audition prep through home visits or via video call.
