Looking for an Acting Coach?
Need an English tutor?
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, I am now offering all teaching via Skype / Zoom
If you have an upcoming audition, presentation, performance or if you would just like to work together on getting the most out of a script, I'm here to help. Trust me, I've been there!
I have supported people to really make the most of their upcoming theatre role, settling those pre-audition jitters by taking away some of the mystery and focusing on solid preparation. Often my clients are preparing to audition for a UK drama school or the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. However, if you are a professional actor with English as a second language, we can also work to ensure your accent and understanding are appropriate and engaging.
Together we can develop character, clarity of thought, decipher the journey of the piece, and definitely have fun!
Whether you would like a face-to-face session, or prefer to meet via skype, I am totally flexible.
Just drop me an email or give me a call to find out more!
Are you a professional looking to improve your English?
I also support professional clients who are looking to add finesse and precision to their spoken English. This has included focus on the detail and distinction of language, preparation for public speaking (including how to manage nerves and be in control of your space) and assistance with written articles and applications that have to be submitted in English.
With younger children and school students, my work has mainly consisted of improving their basic English language skills, including grammar and comprehension. In the UK I have delivered 1-2-1 coaching to those studying for their GCSEs or A-Levels in English Literature and Language. My work in the Netherlands with students has focused on improving English grammar, comprehension, speaking and listening skills.
Joanna has been helping my son with his English since November 2018. She makes my son feel comfortable and his confidence grows every week. His English teacher at his high-school is very impressed with his improvements.
I would recommend Joanna any time!
Joanna was able to bring my English to another (professional) level in only a few lessons. It was great fun with profound results! Frederique Bicker, Psychologist and coach, Amsterdam.
