This is how 2 referees rated Kate:
Acting / Drama
I am a trained actor with extensive experience coaching acting, confidence, public speaking, elocution and interview skills. I was lucky enough to receive fantastic education and training in Drama, Acting and Voice, and feel passionate about passing on those teachings and techniques to craft a polished, professional and genuine performance.
I received my BA Hons Drama degree from the University of Exeter followed by professional acting training at the New York Film Academy and the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. I am currently completing a Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching with the Coaching Academy, with the aim to specialise in confidence coaching.
I am a compassionate, friendly, open and positive person by nature, who takes great joy from empowering others and helping them to achieve their goals.
I am currently Actor In Residence at a school in Oxford, which involves coaching students ages 15-18 in preparation for GCSE, AS and A Level exams, plus external exams including LAMDA.
I run workshops in mainstream schools and theatre schools on a number of different subjects including Voice, Shakespeare, Improvisation and Devising.
I have experience in coaching actors applying to drama school, from helping to source and choose appropriate monologues to getting them on their feet and polished.
I spend much of my time working with those in the corporate sector on building confidence, whether that's preparing for an interview, or developing their presenting/pitching skills.
I work as a life coach, guiding and supporting people to reach their goals. I empower them to take control of the things in their life that they wish to change, and work towards improving them and ultimately find greater confidence and happiness.
It takes great courage to stand in front of anyone and perform, and I admire anyone who is willing to try. I therefore create an open, friendly and approachable atmosphere to work in, so all barriers can come down and we can work together to craft something genuine and exciting.
Most of my work is based on building confidence, which not only helps develop the skills we are focussing on in the lesson, but should filter into your everyday life and help you thrive in both social and professional situations.

Kate has a very professional approach. From the start to the end. The introduction session was not pushy at all what has helped me to gain even more trust in her as a person & a tutor. We have been having two sessions so far and I am blown away how much eye-opening her sessions are already. I am really looking forward to the future sessions. She is a very kind person, who really wants you to succeed. Always prepared & takes teaching seriously, simultaneously keeping it fun & engaging so you can make most of it. Highly recommended ! 6 STARS!
