About Katherine

Professional Tutor for French and Drama

Hello! My name is Katherine and I am a recent graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where I received my BA (Hons) in Acting.
I am a curious, committed, and totally theatre-obsessed young professional actor and I am super excited to help young minds find their way into understanding the subject of drama.

I have previous experience coaching students for drama school auditions (for schools both in the UK and in the US), directing drama school students in productions, as well as coaching and assisting professional actors in preparation for professional auditions.
I have also written and performed my own one-woman play!

I am half Irish and half American and was schooled in Ireland, France, America, and in the UK, leaving me with a highly adaptable understanding of the educational process.

I attended a French language school in the South of France for 6 years where I learnt fluent French.
I also have previous experience tutoring Adult Learners in French and assisting high school French students with coursework.

Thank you for viewing my profile!

Drama Tutor -- highly recommended

Written by Cassidy W
Katherine Laheen coached me with Shakespearean text in preparation for an important audition, and I left our session feeling more confidant about the pieces than before--even with one piece in particular I had worked with for well over a year.

Her comprehensive knowledge of the material helped me understand phrases as they were meant to be used, which then led to me discovering new motivations, and streamlined a series of exercises which felt effortless and in total support of the pieces.

Ms. Laheen, though as working as my senior, made me feel respected, listened to, and ultimately so comfortable throughout the process which led me to being able to explore freely in my performance. I also want to mention, I am close to age with Katherine but still felt such a respect and trust in her approach, that of which I have not even felt as strongly about with more seasoned coaches that I have worked with in both London and New York City.

Katherine really is a world class professional, insightful and articulate individual. I highly recommend working with her.
Subject:
Drama
Outcome:
I feel like I have a better grasp on the monologues, have new ways in which to approach text all around, and feel validated in my own talent for having worked with her.

A thorough and patient teacher

Written by Martin Q
With my French not being very good at all I have found Katherine's lessons really useful. She clearly enjoys teaching as she makes the lessons fun and accessible, and she tailors the lesson to your own abilities, which was perfect for me.

French
Outcome:
My French has improved a lot and it's much less of a chore working at it - I enjoy learning now!
