I have worked In most fields in the acting profession including film dubbing. I work as a professional Voice Over Artist in commercials for TV and Radio.
My work as a Voice and Elocution teacher is very rewarding. I enjoy witnessing the growing confidence in a person when they learn to centre their voice and use it to portray their true intention. A lot of people who come to me have regional accents that they wish to soften. My foreign students benefit enormously in the work place by improving their pronunciation of the English language. This in turn gives them so much more confidence and increases their prospects professionally. I also have seen great results in students who have received my help in public speaking either in meetings, conferences or weddings, to name but a few. Because of my background in dance, mime and acting I advise on posture, body language and gesture. I believe can change your whole persona by expressing yourself clearly and eloquently by placing the voice properly, improving diction and being aware of correct posture.
Feedback For Laura (9)
Laura is a very sympathetic tutor who helped my daughter correct some localised pronunciation issues within a few sessions. I would definitely recommend Laura as a tutor.
I`m very pleased to have found Laura. She is very knowledgeable, supportive and overall a lovely person to meet. She had surpassed my expectations and I am very pleased for the input she is offering me.
As a non native English speaker my wife started using Laura as she wanted to soften her accent, and to learn techniques to better deliver public speaking. Laura is outstanding, she is friendly and her teaching is both highly professional but yet relaxed. After a only a few lessons her techniques and teachings have enabled my wife to deliver an important work presentation both confidently and clearly. Whilst the initial reason for taking the lessons has now passed, my wife enjoys her lessons with Laura so much that she is continuing lessons to further soften her accent.
Laura has been a great help towards me realising my goals. She is warm, welcoming and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her.
Laura is a very knowledgeable and personable voice coach. The advice and techniques that she has given me has already improved my delivery after only a few lessons. I would have no hesitation in recommending Laura`s services.
Laura is an outstanding tutor, very professional and very kind. I wish I had met her earlier. Teaching skills are so easy to understand. Would recommend highly.
Ms Chapman returned our initial email promptly and had established a good teaching relationship with our daughter.
I would highly recommend Laura as a voice/elocution coach. She is dedicated to the individual and the cause, with her broad knowledge is able to offer varied exercises in order to achieve the best delivery and execution of the voice. I have noticed a vast difference from my lessons with Laura, her friendly and human approach makes the learning curve that bit easier and certainly more enjoyable. Thank you for your hard on-going work Laura!
Laura has been the best vocal tutor I could wish for. She has helped me to prepare two contrasting monologues within only one month. We had a huge beautiful and spacious room to do our sessions. Laura has helped me with my accent, shakespeare interpretation and acting techniques. I have received more help than I was expecting. Also, she has recommended me do so some singing classes with her daughter- Dominique, who has also been a great help. I will definitely take some more lessons with Laura and Dominique in the near future.
