“Thank you so much again. She was the epitome of confidence and calm as she went into her exam. We couldn’t have achieved this without your expert guidance. She (and we) know she was trained by the best. We can’t thank you enough.”
Catherine, Ealing

As a youth theatre tutor, senior tutor, director and writer for stage and audio, I work with children, teenagers and their teachers and directors to build confidence, communication and performance skills. Residencies since 2007 include the Questors Theatre and Heathfield Girls Day School Trust, before I began working exclusively from home in 2013. I’m also the author of the WJEC/Eduqas Drama GCSE Study and Revision Guide.

“Rachel is an excellent tutor. Her absolute superpower is giving confidence to the young people she is working with. She is kind, patient, responsive and encouraging – the best kind of teacher. We really appreciate the way she tailors her materials to individual students, encouraging them to be the best they can be.”
Andrew and Rachel, Rickmansworth

My students’ LAMDA Examination results have been between 96% and 99% distinction for the last five years, including during lockdown when the continuity of confidence and communication skills became more important than ever. Exam are non-compulsory; each syllabus is designed to prioritise the intellectual and emotional growth of the individual.

“We asked Rachel to assess a piece of our son’s schoolwork after receiving rather scant feedback from his class teacher. Rachel produced a very thoughtful analysis, pointed out what he’d done well, where it could be improved and also gave tips for future work. This was really helpful to us and to our son.”
Sandra, Twickenham

In addition to my own teaching, I employ a team of substitute tutors with a wealth of experience in teaching, writing, directing and acting for film and television. If I do not have availability personally, or if I think one of my team is better suited to the specific booking, I will suggest the person I think best for you and your child or teenager.

Subjects include Public Speaking (including speechwriting), Speaking Verse and Prose, Acting, Devising Drama, Mime and Reading for Performance as well as Creative Writing, Comprehension, English Language and Literature.

All bookings are subject to terms and conditions, to be signed by the parent/guardian before the first session takes place. Request information and availability here.
