The Mandy Ellen Academy of Performing Arts
I am a member of the acting faculty at The Mandy Ellen Academy of Performing Arts; a three year performing arts course accredited by CDET.
I teach a broad range of lessons which include improvisation, puppetry, physical theatre and professional development.
I have been a key figure in preparation for the college's Agent Showcase for the last two years representing the acting department. The college has just celebrated it's most successful showcase outcome yet.
The Pauline Quirke Academy
I am the 'Comedy and Drama' tutor at PQA Rochester.
"These sessions are devoted to expanding our students' knowledge of different theatrical forms and techniques. This includes everything from improvisation and devised theatre to mime, mask, script work and vocal techniques – including projection and diction.
Theatre games help with confidence-building, self-esteem, teamwork and communication skills where the use of imagination and the tools of storytelling are emphasised.
Students are encouraged to explore different staging options, including 'in-the-round,' 'promenade' and even site-specific work – all designed to give them the broadest acting tuition possible."
Workshops and Private Lessons
I regularly teach my own acting and physical theatre workshops on a freelance basis and have taught at a variety of drama schools and after school clubs. The workshops can be tailored to the requirements of each client depending on age ranges, the amount of students and time. For more information about the types of workshops I can offer please enquire through the contact page of this website. I look forward to hearing from you.

"Jamie recently taught a group of my students..the class was wonderful. I was blown away by Jamie's preparation and creativity and he had a natural communication with the children. I would highly recommend Jamie to others."

"Jamie coached me for a commercial audition for 'Smart Insurance'. He made me feel at ease, he had plenty of patience and he ran the material as many times as I needed. He made me feel very confident going into my casting. It resulted in me booking the commercial and I definitely couldn't have done it without his help and guidance."
