Language Coaching: Actors, Poets and Public Speakers
Who am I? (Or, Why would you pick me for your language coach?)
With my professional training in acting and production and my Ph.D. in English Renaissance Drama, I am uniquely positioned to assist actors in understanding the marvellous and terrifying intricacies of Shakespearean English and social culture in Renaissance England. For the past 10 years, I have worked with actors (amateur, emerging and well-seasoned) to help them better understand Shakespearean text. This includes helping actors to get ready for auditions and working with them as they prepare for production.
I have extended my services to help poets prepare for public readings, as well as to assist other individuals in honing their public speaking skills. Together, we work on breathing exercises, text analysis and elocution.
Note to actors
Rates and Sundries
Because this is usually loud and obnoxiously fun, it's best to be in a private space (though on mild, non-rainy days, parks are always nice). After an initial meeting at a café, I usually invite actors to meet me at my home.
