Information About Laura - March tutor
This is how 3 referees rated Laura:
My name is Laura, I am a 33 year old resting professional actress. I have two young daughters of primary school age and a young son with disabilities but I am eager to once more put my talents to good use however and whenever I get the chance.
I am a published poet, I write plays and screen plays also and am currently one of the Student ambassadors for the Royal Opera House as in my spare time I also study for a degree in English Literature and Language; my other passion apart from acting.
I also enjoy baking and regularly make decorative cakes and homemade treats.
I have coached many people using drama to build confidence, to audition for drama school or even for help with public speaking, including the difficult task of speaking at funerals.
My experience includes extensive workshops and drama sessions with children from the ages of 4-18 on issues such as arson, road safety and bullying, with the support of the relevant county's emergency services. I have worked freelance as an improvisation, voice/speech and script tutor at the much acclaimed drama school, The Actor Works, in Wapping, home to the annual OffCut festival.
Apart from my drama and theatre tutelage, I have helped many 16-18 year olds with coursework, exam preparation, text and poetry analysis and building confidence in their ability to use the English language.
My approach to tutoring depends on the tutee, I like to create a path to follow together, something that we're both comfortable with and because of the diversity of my work this is vital.
I am easy to get on with, however you will get homework and I expect as much determination and commitment to me and our sessions as I will give to you. We will write or formulate a plan together in the first session and regularly review it to make sure we are on track and adapt or continue as needs be.
Whatever the goal, be it confidence building, exam preparation, full on performance, or just for fun, I will help you achieve it.
