About Emily Laws School of Acting

Have you always wanted to express yourself with conviction and passion? As someone once said: “Acting is behaving truthfully under imaginary circumstances”. Welcome to Emily Laws School of Acting – I am a fully qualified teacher of English, Acting and Singing, and I love teaching students how to act and sing with all their heart! With vast teaching experience spanning over 30 years, I take pride in helping and empowering every student to reach their full potential. I am drawn to acting because it inspires us to truly experience the human soul – something I continue to encourage with my students. I gained my qualifications of BA (Hons), PGCE, LLAM (London Academy of Dramatic Art teaching qualification) because I like inspiring dreamers and doers to reach for the stars. Young or old, I teach up to (and including) A-Levels in schools as well as adults. My sessions are either offered privately or in groups. Whether you want to make it to the silver screen, conquer the stage, or want to build your self-confidence, I will customise and prepare each lesson/session according to your specific needs and aspirations. After each session, I reflect on the lesson and ensure that my preparation for the following one builds on the previous lesson. I am well organised, persuasive, and engaging and will motivate you to connect to certain roles and refine your techniques as our lessons progress. My varied and extensive teaching experience enables me to easily engage with my students, quickly forming a friendly and professional relationship. Empathy plays a critical part in being an actor or performer, and I encourage students to contact me in between sessions to address any questions or concerns at no additional cost. Beyond acting and singing lessons, I also provide editing service for essays and dissertations. Several of my students that expected to fail their English GCSE all gained grade A or B as their final result. For students struggling with English and in need of a GCSE English tutor, I can assist with structured lessons tailored to your goals. Over the years, I have helped students achieve and even exceed their predicted grades using a mix of past papers, practice, and regular lively discussions that have a positive impact. Whether for acting, singing or English tuition, I consider my rates to be very reasonable, and students that book and prepay for 10 sessions get a 10% discount. Occasionally, I also offer free taster sessions in some instances. I am extremely passionate about teaching and aim to deliver enjoyable classes so that all my students truly benefit. My school motto is 'There Are No Impossible Dreams', and I will do my best to help you get to where you desire to be. Whether for your child or yourself, do get in touch to set up a chat about your needs, and I look forward to working with you.

Rob u.'s review on Oct 26, 2020

Amazing experience so far. The aim was for my son to gain confidence, prepare for presentations etc. and in 3 sessions we are already seeing a huge benefit. My son is more confident projecting his voice, more confident emphasising aspects of text. He’s also really enjoyed every minute of it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Miss M.'s review on Oct 05, 2020

The Emily Laws School of Acting provides a friendly, safe and very professional environment for young people to express themselves and gain new skills. My son has progressed in a relatively short time, from keen but very nervous, to confident and full of enthusiasm for performing! The classes are well planned and structured, with every child receiving an opportunity to shine at what they do best, and the end of term performances are always an absolute joy to watch. I would highly recommend to all ages and levels of experience.

Molly T.'s review on Sep 28, 2020

Mandy is absolutely brilliant at what she does - I joined ELSA when I was quite young and stayed until O was 18, and the time I have spent there has been so worth it. Not only have I gained indispensable skills for acting, but my confidence levels and self esteem have been boosted massively.

G P.'s review on Sep 25, 2020

Our daughter learned some of her most valuable life skills through Emily Laws, along with many new insights into classical literature, musical theatre and drama. She always looked forward to and thoroughly enjoyed classes, and we as a family have enjoyed many fine productions over the years. We have always been amazed by how much is achieved even in the short intensive courses.

Yvonne S.'s review on Sep 25, 2020

Very experienced, professional actor. Amazing talent and desire to teach the craft in all areas of theatre - acting, singing, staging, direction, props, poetry, musical theatre, costume, scenery, lighting, etc. Top results achieved in LAMDA exams. Very reliable, and flexible even throughout Coronavirus continued to put her students and their learning at the forefront. Would highly recommend for private or group lessons in English, Acting, Music, and other subjects too.

Shellene d.'s review on Sep 24, 2020

My daughter has attended drama lessons with Emily Laws School of Acting for over three years now. Over that time she has grown in confidence and loves performing. She has learnt so much from studying Shakespeare and numerous musicals, and is able to put herself in other people’s shoes. When I asked her what she liked about her drama classes, she said “it’s always fun and there’s loads of laughing”. What more could a parent want?

Elia has been a delight to teach. Her growth in confidence has been amazing. She is a shining star

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
Exceptionally competitive teaching rates. Class fees are just £5 per hour. Private tuition ranges from £15 - £40, depending on subject and length of session. Discount for siblings on holiday courses.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I take full name, address and telephone number. We have either an initial phonecall or meeting to discuss what teaching is required and individual needs.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
BA (Hons) English and Drama PGCE (Post-graduate Certificate in Education) LLAM (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art teaching qualification)
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Always check their qualifications and experience. Ensure that the service being offered suits your needs and have an initial conversation/meeting to get an initial 'feeling of ease'.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
State what they hope to achieve from the specific teaching and ask how I can fulfill that.
What are some good examples of past customers?
Students from all age ranges who are committed, dedicated, hard-working and have great listening skills.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
From March to July I set up and held my Saturday Acting classes on Zoom. I was able to take advantage of all Zoom's features and we successfully rehearsed our version of 'Mamma Mia'. Due to the continued Covid situation we were unable to perform in our usual venue so we went 'on tour' and took the performance to Lytham Hall, where we adapted to an outdoor location. The performance was highly successful.
How did you first get into this line of work?
Having been both a professional actress and teacher, I decided to combine the two and set up my own business in 1993.
