'Kelly is so warm and welcoming to all our students, adapting her teaching style so that it is suitable for our Y7 students or our Y13 students. Her excellent work and training is evident; the students she teaches improve their confidence and acting skills which shines through in Drama lessons. The students’ LAMDA results have been fantastic since the day she started here at Darrick Wood. We hope for LAMDA to keep growing and continue to be highly successful.'
Laura Cox, Head of Year 12 Darrick Wood School
'Kelly has been amazing at our school, the students have absolutely loved working with her and it has really aided their confidence and belief in their own ability. The Lamda sessions enable the students to develop both their practical acting skills and their ability to analyse a character in depth. Not only is Kelly great with the students but she is also a dream to work with from a schools perspective, she organises and arranges everything which makes it so accessible for the school to run.'
Paul Ferguson, Deputy Headteacher, Thamesview School, Gravesend
'We have worked with Kelly Woods on offering students at WG6 - Wilmington Grammar Sixth Form, the chance to take up LAMDA qualifications in Public Speaking this year. This has been a huge success and many students have both enjoyed and valued this opportunity. We have seen students improve their confidence by gaining outstanding results as well as adding to their skill set. This qualification has also seen students with merits and distinctions offered fantastic apprenticeship opportunities.
We would certainly recommend students to take up this amazing qualification with the excellent support and encouragement offered by Kelly Woods.'
Mrs Geraldine Tiddy, Head of WG6
'I can highly recommend Kelly at Articul8. My son has been doing LAMDA with her for a couple of years and loves every moment!
Even the online sessions during Lockdown! '
'Kelly Woods you are a superstar. Something xxxxxx genuinely looks forward to in the upcoming slog of online lessons. You are a winner!! Thank you. Xx'
'Another Kelly fan here. Both my children attended a summer workshop run by Kelly - she understood them so quickly and found situations to allow them to draw on their strengths and build confidence. I have no appreciation, but drama for us is not necessarily about being an excellent actor, it’s about giving the kids confidence and a voice to come across in a sensitive but confident way.'
'Articul8 came to Dartford girls when my daughter was there. Brilliant for coaxing quiet teenagers into confident young adults.
Obviously schools are closed at the moment but a friend is doing the online lessons.A great thing to do, especially when there is so much competition to get into university or the workplace.'
'I highly recommend Kelly for Lamda.. Both my children have been taught by Kelly - my son who lacked confidence in public speaking and soared with confidence through this ,and my daughter , gaining UCAS points .... highly recommended!'
'If it wasn’t for Kelly my son would never have followed the path he has to become an actor . Kelly has helped him all the way from a young boy giving him the confidence to perform on the village stage, providing great knowledge and advice for monologues for his LAMDA exam which he got a Distinction in and then thanks to Kelly’s advice and guidance James got into The Brit School and now she is helping him with his self tapes for auditions to become a TV and Film actor. A dream come true so we owe Kelly at Articul8 big time!!! She is awesome 🤩'
