Tammy Mendelson – Acting Tutor

Tammy originally trained as an actress at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now the RCS) and later at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York – diverse trainings that continue to compliment and influence her practice enormously. Following a varied performance career, including working for the BBC, National Theatre and Hackney Empire amongst others, she moved into directing whilst living in New York and found her true passion.

Tammy is an experienced acting coach, having taught and directed across a number of London’s drama schools (including CSSD, IDSA and Arts Ed in addition to Italia Conti) as well as heading up her own award-winning theatre company The Scenic Route, dedicated to supporting new artists and new work.

Tammy has taught at Italia Conti since 2014.
