Sophie has helped me many times over the years in the field of English and European drama studies. Sophie's specialist knowledge in this area has provided me with invaluable tutoring for:
- text analysis to better understand my plays and audition pieces (e.g.: period of the piece, style, tone and meaning of the text)
- direction with audition pieces (physicality of the character, language used, cultural context etc)
- confidence building (invaluable for an actor and for which I am very grateful to her, in that Sophie taught me to believe in my talents)
- general industry advice and guidance (she has an insider's view and has provided much guidance on the subject of letter writing, CV writing etc)
Sophie is not only knowledge and supportive, she also punctual, reliable, exceedingly patient and hard-working... Qualities without which I doubt I would passed my exams!
In short, I would not hesitate to recommend Sophie in the fields of English literature and drama, along with European literature and drama (particularly French and German, as these are two languages which she is fluent in).
