About: Sam Marsden began her journey at The Margaret Wilcox School of Speech and Drama at an early age with weekly classes at Margaret Wilcox’s home, progressing to two classes a week - half of these taking place at the Knutsford Little Theatre, and then the school moved to Knutsford Civic Centre before moving to its current home at Plumley Village Hall. By age 12 Sam was helping Margaret with younger classes and enjoyed attending senior classes. She continued her work for Margaret whilst gaining qualifications in Speech and Drama at the London College of Music - Poetry, Prose and Acting exams gaining her an ALCM Diploma. Sam studied Drama and English Literature at the University of Chester graduating with a BA (Hons) before returning to work alongside Margaret. Expanding her repertoire, Sam engaged in writing and directing plays, voice over work, working for Creative Partnerships in schools and running the popular Make Believe multimedia workshops. Sam took over the school when Margaret retired 6 years ago. Sam has recently set up 'Zoom Pod' Drama sessions for home educated children. These fun sessions take place during the daytime and support social, communication and confidence-building skills through Drama games and activities. They are proving to be very popular and children are making new friends from all over the country. LAMDA examinations are an option for students who are keen to gain qualifications in Speech and Drama, and as a tutor Sam has a 100% pass rate! Sam follows the Acting, Verse and Prose and Reading for Performance syllabi from Introductory to Grade 8 (Gold Medal). Level 3 LAMDA exams are an excellent way of gaining UCAS points - (for further information on this, please visit: https://www.lamda.ac.uk/lamda-exams/learners/ucas ) Sam has always been passionate about teaching Drama and celebrating individual personalities, by encouraging students to express themselves creatively and dynamically, and helping them develop their emotional literacy, interpersonal skills, social awareness, confidence and empathy.
