My training sessions offer a creative, playful, fully immersive enviroment in which to explore embodied teaching methods by trying them for yourself, thus connecting theory with practice. I facilitate and guide teachers in discovering their own creativity in one to one or small group sessions tailored to meet your specific needs.

  • Develop your own confidence in the classroom through improvisation, voice and breath work.

  • Create dynamic lesson plans to engage and motivate your students.

  • Explore the principles of embodied learning and Drama in Education and apply them practically.

  • Learn to adapt drama techniques for specific groups of learners, e.g. Business English.

Testimonials

 "I can't recommend Miriam highly enough. She is a great tutor, so knowledgeable and encouraging. Her creativity with lessons is really motivating and she incorporates the use of drama too which is cool. It encouraged me to think outside the box for my own lessons. I really enjoyed her classes and would definitely consider her for any future training." - Roisin CELT Trainee

"Miriam provides excellent background knowledge both in Drama and ESL. For teachers, if you would like to add extra activities to your subject, this is the place to be. Miriam has an impressive understanding of teaching strategies and methods in developing lesson plans and schemes of work from both a formal teaching perspective and using non-formal activities. If a teacher wants to develop their teaching skills, Miriam provides a perfect opportunity.  She treats her clients with discretion and fairness and is understanding of their needs." - Anton O' Reánnacháin

"I have just completed the Drama for Language Teachers course and feel much more confident and inspired to start creating the programme for my new English course in September. Thank you so much Miriam for passing on your knowledge and enthusiasm. The Zoom sessions are really well thought out and worked a treat as we had an opportunity to try out many new techniques and discuss them. Our lovely group felt very energised by Miriam's approach and her creativity is so contagious it could start another pandemic!"- Ali Reese
