I am an established acting tutor currently based in Stratford-upon-Avon. I have over twenty years of experience and a specialised interest in Shakespeare. As well as tutoring classes, facilitating workshops, and directing countless productions, I have had the immense pleasure of supporting students with their audition preparation for drama school. Many of my students have gone on to study at drama schools in the UK—for more about their experience of working with me, see Testimonials. As all sessions are tailored specifically to each client, whether you're a seasoned actor, a student applying to drama school, or looking to explore Shakespeare for pleasure, I look forward to hearing from you.
"[Clare-Louise] makes you work harder than you imagined possible, but the payoff is brilliant and you are guaranteed to have many laughs along the way."
