« Shona and I met through the local Toastmasters club where I continue to be amazed at her articulate, clear, and passionate presentations. As the current President, she leads the meetings very competently. I attended one of her recent writing classes and found her way of presenting information clear and informative. Shona is a highly skilled listener as well and is very adept at helping students individually. I feel Superprof members have a lot to gain from her warm, intelligent, and engaging teaching skills. »

Theatre Nerd teaches acting to teens and adults. Group or individual lessons.

Methodology

My group lessons are 100% student focused, interactive and focus on developing sense and emotion memory skills in an environment that is fun, relaxed and fosters trust. We work in groups and individually, utilising improv and script work and character development.

Individual lessons available, particularly for assistance with HSC drama performances, university projects, or individual projects. Able to coach in script breakdowns, breaking monolgues into beats and assist with direction.

Background

I have a long history in the dramatic arts, that began as a child and spanned well into my adulthood. I have written and performed my own work, directed shows and minored Drama at the University of Newcastle as I completed my Bachelor of Arts Degree (English major.)

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $35/h

Details

Am able to provide group rates. Have capacity to rent local space to host lessons for minor extra fee if students unable to host lessons in home. Webcam lessons only available for 1 on 1 lessons for monlogue coaching, script breakdowns or script readings.

I have known Shona for five years now. She is a talented, confident and patient teacher who knows her material and imparts her knowledge in an easy to understand manner. We attend Toastmasters together where she supports members and the club in a professional way. Her coaching skill is much appreciated.
