Tailored classes -suitable to age and experience levels.
Classes for adults are generally two hours or longer -kids classes can easily be an hour though (or longer if you want a longer break from your kids -we can always have a break in between classes too)!
KIDS & TEENS DISCOUNTS:
Kids classes are heavily discounted so subtract £5 per hour from normal rates for every child or teenager under 14 years old
& subtract £10 per hour from normal rates for every child under 9 years old.
The more hours you book, the cheaper the hourly rate. .
Rates for Hourly Classes:
Kids -Perfect DBS / CRB Certificate:
https://www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check/overview To assure parents that I have no criminal convictions I have done a voluntary DBS/ CRB check (flawless) proving my suitability to work with children and I can show parents this. I have also worked in schools and nurseries and with kids of all ages.
DISCOUNTS: 14-18 years old's rates above. Students under 14 years old get a £6 discount off each hour Students under 9 years old get £10 off each hour.
Courses and Discounts:
I am always happy to teach the first class without any commitment to do further classes. After this first class I ask students to either commit to a course (as little as 3 two hour classes is fine) or to stop classes (scroll down for reasons).
We will pencil regular days of the week and times in but this can be changed if notice is given (I try to be as flexible as possible).
The minimum Express course is 6 classes (i.e. 3 two hour classes or 6 one hour classes, etc). Prices can be worked out above.
Full day workshop rates are listed separately on another menu tab, please contact me for kids and teens discounts.
Package discounts for acting classes: Package rates are for two hour classes but we can always have a break in between the two hours if concentration is an issue.
I ask students to commit to a course for several reasons:
1) Life is always busy &, however good your intentions are to improve, unless you commit to a courses, it will be too easy to put off your good intentions to do classes. By committing to a course you are helping yourself achieve your goals
2) If students don't commit to courses, I waste time arranging each class time, checking every payment has come through, reminding students to decide when to book the next class, etc, it complicates my tax records with lots of little payments, etc, and, most importantly, I can't plan my schedule effectively. 3) I only want to teach students who really want to improve -actually wanting to improve is not enough as that is a wish and not an action, they need to be committed to improving which they will do by booking a course. It is not satisfying to teach classes scattered across months and I can't plan lessons or your progress this way -I only want to teach students where I can see their improvements hence a course is needed.
