She recently had performing arts in her new high school and came home and said mummy school performing arts . . is rubbish compared to Emily laws drama. Emily encourages brings out the best in all. Has a huge ability to direct ,create , produce many wonderful productions we have been apart of and the summer school is a must on my kids 5 weeks hit list. A very talented lady who really cares. With realms of experience.. More...

I couldn't be more fortunate to have Mandy as my Acting teacher. Mandy's passion, knowledge, and personality not only enabled me to build a good foundation in Acting but also love performing even more. Mandy's teaching quality was evident by the fact that kept me engaged and interested on a weekly basis and while attending the sessions online. After 6 months of good work with Mandy, I've performed at Lamda for my Level 6 and looking forward to develop further in Acting and perform more in the future. I would highly recommend Mandy to anyone, new or experienced in Acting - she's an absolute superstar! More...

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. More...

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. More...

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. More...

Emily is very professional, she gives equal opportunities to everyone.

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. More...

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.

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? More...

Very professional, highly recommend.

My daughter has been working with Emily for last 6 years. I as a mother and a entertainer totally respect mandy halls way of teaching. She is a wonder and my daughter has grown in her performance ability, confidence , and I knowledge of so many productions Mandy has put on . Also Mandy has taught my daughter privately singing, and you can’t beat a singing teacher who can play Piano as everyone individuals voice are unique and need special attention in certain areas. And Mandy can deliver .. I am fussy hard to please but this teacher ticks all the boxes and more. Highly recommended five star 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 More...


* Inspiring people to reach their full potential
* Seeing people's confidence significantly growing before my eyes and knowing that I enabled that to happen
* Learning from my students
*Developing friendly, professional relationships with an extensive wide range of people

I wanted to combine all my skills and experiences and use them in a positive way. I teach all ages. I teach English Language and Literature, Acting, Speaking, Mime, Improvisation, Singing, Piano and keyboard. I teach Private lessons both in person and online, nationally and internationally. I teach classes of all ages. I produce up to 12 productions a year. I don't think there is a job out there that includes all of this so I had to start my own business - and I'm so glad I did. It is the best job in the world!

My level, length and range of experience sets me apart from other teachers. My classes and private sessions are inspiring, motivational and fun. I recognise the unique qualities of each individual and tailor my teaching to enable each student to achieve their own personal full potential.

I work extensively on Zoom and am particularly looking to build up my international work - particularly in countries such as China.

During the pandemic all classes were moved to online. I still do a significant amount of online teaching. My 'live' classes all practice social-distancing and hand sanitising. The wearing of masks is now optional.


For all ages. Whether you want to perform professionally or simply want to gain self-confidence, I offer tuition in vocal techniques, improvisation, audition techniques, verse and prose, public speaking etc. I can also enter you for internationally recognised qualifications in a wide range of performance topics (LAMDA).

I am a fully qualified teacher of English with many years of experience. I am particularly interested in helping students improve their grades and reach their full potential in English Language and English Literature.
