I have studied voice, speech, dialects and acting for two years at Harvard University. I have been so lucky to receive the education I have had and want to pass it along to as many people as possibly. As a recent graduate of an MFA Acting program, I have been immersed in this knowledge and am now qualified to teach it! I have a lot of experience teaching kids as well, both in group settings and privately. Having moved to the USA from Australia, I have had a thorough experience myself in learning and perfecting dialects. I have previously taught acting classes in middle schools and private coachings with adults back home in Sydney and have absolutely loved it.
There is nothing more satisfying than setting out to complete a goal and achieving it. I hope to help students achieve their goals, whatever they may be. Whether it is building confidence in public speaking, preparing for an audition, studying approaches to Shakespeare, whatever! I want to work together to achieve your goals.
I had a lot of trouble with doubt and stage fright when acting, so she helped me figure out ways to eliminate that fear and make me more confident in my acting. I was only in the drama club for a short while so she was only able to help me a little, but never the less what she did had a lasting effect
Bridget was my amazing middle school drama club teacher from years 7-9. Under her guidance, I learnt many integral drama skills such as play building and improvisation as well as many others, which served me well in my participation in my drama elective class and school productions. Bridget was an absolutely fantastic teacher: Thursday night Drama club was often the highlight of my week and was a time to learn and experiment in a safe and fun environment with my friends. I thoroughly adored my time with Bridget and would highly recommend her as a speech and drama coach to any future employer.
Bridget has definitely been one of the most influential teachers that I have had. I was 12 years old when I was taught by Bridget and she executed the perfect balance between friendliness and professionalism. She was such a mentor to me at such an impressionable age and also taught me so much about speech and drama. Bridget really improved my confidence around others and taught me how to express myself. Bridget is such a friendly and approachable teacher who is always there to help. She strives for you to achieve your personal best and really pushes you to do so. Bridget made every lesson engaging and always had new ways of teaching the content. I always really looked forward to my lessons with Bridget and hope that I can work with her again in the future !
It was well structured and very organised, she always had a plan but could also adapt to working with what we wanted to do. Overall it was a really fun time and learn a large amount about drama.
I will do a free 15 minute consultation with you prior to our first appointment, to work out what you are working on and hoping to achieve. I may also record you so I can really hone in and be specific about what we need to work on together.
