Information About Katie - Highgate teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Katie:
Acting / Drama
I am an actor, director and facilitator with 8 years' experience of facilitating and tutoring in Norwich and London. I have a BA in Writing, Directing and Performance, and I have worked as a facilitator and performer in museums and for acting courses, including working with young people.
I currently work as a facilitator at the Discover Children's Story Centre, performing texts and leading families and school groups through activities that support communication and creative skills.
I have also worked as a classroom assistant for the Norwich Theatre Royal Arts Courses, teaching acting skills to young people from beginners to advanced students, including some one-on-one sessions.
I also have experience as a director, working with actors with varying acting experience to develop their skills in the context of a particular play.
The most important thing for me is making sure that you feel comfortable and confident in my sessions. Even as an experienced actor, it can be daunting to work with someone new or on a new set of skills, but I hope to be a friendly and supportive tutor so that you can feel free to be creative.
I want to find out what your goals are, so we can work together to build a session plan that suits you. I want to push you to reach your aims, whatever they are, but I also want to make sure we're going at the right pace for you and that you don't feel too overwhelmed. There are many different approaches to acting and I have experience with quite a few methods, so I want to find out what works for you and what doesn't so that we can get the best out of you.
I want to share my toolbox with you so that you can thoughtfully engage with the work that you are doing, and then have the freedom to experiment and play with it. Some of the best work I've done came from doing things I never thought I could do and from allowing myself to take risks and be a little bit silly. So let's be thoughtful and silly together!
