And even dreams not what they seem."

Amanda Vilanova

Hello! My name is Amanda.

I am an actress, writer and Drama/Spanish tutor. I have trained as a performer in my home country, Puerto Rico and have an MA in acting from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

I have worked on stage and screen as well as written and produced my own work.

I absolutely love teaching and playing with texts to discover new things about literature and art.

I am so looking forward to working and exploring my favourite works with you!
