Private Lessons

Posted on: August 11th, 2019 by artsAdmin

ArtsEd EXTRA offer private lessons with ArtsEd tutors in all three disciplines. These are currently available both face-to-face and online.

These classes are designed for students wanting to prepare for an audition, developing technique and/or building confidence. Previously students that have had private tuition have gone on to gain a place in our full time day school, sixth form or degree courses as well as numerous other performing arts institutions.

We also offer LAMDA exams as part of our Saturday programme. These will be taking place online, at least for the first half of term.

LAMDA exams are about achievement – recognising and rewarding the endeavours of each individual – but they are also about empowerment. Our ultimate aim is to provide all people with the opportunity to develop the life skills they need to be a success: attributes such as self-confidence and the ability to communicate clearly and present ideas.

At the heart of LAMDA examinations is the recognition that the qualifications are for everyone. Across the globe, the examinations unite learners of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and cultures in enthusiasm for the English language and a desire to develop skills for life.

If you would like to book a LAMDA lesson please email for information. Slots can be booked as half an hour (£25) or an hour (£40).

Please note: These will be taking place online next term.


Margarete Pagliarulo

Margarete trained at ArtsEd Tring & the London school.

She performed in the “Nutcracker” at the Festival Hall many times, and numerous other pantomimes during her early years.

She is a full member of Equity and a professional actress and dancer. She incorporates movement into many of the Shakespeare pieces she trains her medal students for and this is often noted in the outstanding marks they achieve at exam level.

During her career in TV, film and theatre she had roles including “Monty Python, Ripping Yarns, Up Chat Line, Duchess of Duke Street, Life of Disraeli, The Two Ronnies, & Anna Karenina.”

Margarete has also trained members of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and been the voice coach for a celebrity chef in Hell’s Kitchen.

She trains actors for auditions for TV & Radio, and specialises in teaching spoken English to foreign students.

She is fluent in German and can speak conversational French and Italian.

Alongside this she also has a successful career, spanning over 30 years, teaching LAMDA and Speech & Drama to  pupils of all ages and ability.

She has taught in international boarding schools and preparatory schools, covering all areas of the syllabus for all ages. Her pupils always obtain excellent results, and many students have achieved distinction at Bronze, Silver & Gold Medal. As well as these achievements contributing to academic points towards UCAS, they also play a vital part in self confidence and building technique for interviews.
