Jacquie Kirke offers private tuition & coaching for LAMDA (The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) ‘Acting’, ‘Devising Drama’, ‘Speaking In Public’, ‘Reading For Performance’, and ‘The Speaking of Verse and Prose’ examinations. Private tuition is available in the areas of Twickenham, Teddington, Richmond, and Hampton.
What are LAMDA exams?
LAMDA is the largest Speech and Drama awarding body in the UK, and their Graded Examinations are accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority. There are exams for all age groups/levels. Level 3 examinations are recognised in the University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) points system to support university applications.
I personally think these exams are great. The guidelines are clear whilst also allowing lots of creativity. It’s an opportunity to receive a recognised record of achievement and is not as daunting as it first appears! Feedback from candidates and parents is very positive – including how friendly and welcoming the staff are before, and after, the exam (which would be at one of LAMDA’s venues in the Baron’s Court area of London).
Lamda Tuition Success Rate
My students, over the last 16 years, have received excellent results: with a 100% pass rate, and the majority achieving Distinction or Merit (including those taking Advanced Grades). Parents of candidates receiving LAMDA tuition have commented on how positive the experience was for their child, and how their self-esteem has benefitted enormously. It really does boost their self-confidence.
Obviously exams are optional, and would in no way interfere with classwork/rehearsals. Actfirst regular students receive a reduced rate for private LAMDA tuition. Tutorials are held either at my, or the student’s, house.
Candidates would need to have approximately 6 to 10 tutorials (depending on the grade). They can enter singly, or (for example, in the case of ‘Acting Duologues’), in pairs.
In addition to LAMDA tuition, I offer private tuition for auditions, public speaking, or voice/speech development, for both children and adults.
